SUMMARY: Things change so quickly in the landscape of football in south Florida, and Hialeah is living proof of that.
With this team rolling along a year ago – with tough losses to state-rated 8A Miami Palmetto, 4A Davie University School and in the playoffs against once beaten Plantation, everything was rolling along.
With so much talent onboard, this was certainly a program for the future – with several key pieces to the successful 2019 season returning, but things went south – quickly.
Players started to leave for other schools and the resignation of head coach Gary Sanchez reduced this program back to Square 1. The search for a new head coach to get the ball rolling once again as Athletic Director Marc Berman didn’t have to look very far at all – when Hialeah-Miami Lakes head coach Tyronn Johnson who had done some great things with the Trojans was selected.
While it has been a blur so far, Johnson, a Miami Northwestern product, who is quite familiar with south Florida, brought in a solid coaching staff and began to lay down a game plan for his new program.
When the 2020 season does get started, you know that this program will quickly climb that ladder back to the top and hope to reach the state playoffs once again.
As change comes quickly in south Florida, it works on both sides of the coin, and this program is ready to make that charge back to the top, again.
