While the Coronavirus is dictating high school football, across the country, we can understand the need for ongoing exposure.
Because we promote high school football in south Florida year-round, there is no need to stop right now.

SUMMARY: There are a number of football programs that certainly have bright futures, and you can count this one as a team that truly fits into that category.
With Javi Valdes knowing how to build football teams and teach younger players, you know that this is a program on the verge of turning the corner.
Even with a loss in the playoffs to three-time defending state champion Chaminade-Madonna, you have to believe that this is a team – loaded with veteran and younger players – ready to once again be a playoff team in a classification that is getting much more competitive.
If you have followed Valdes and his coaches at their stops along the way, you fully understand why there is plenty of optimism in Homestead for this rising football team.
