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.
In the coming weeks, we will have a brief look at the school in south Florida in a segment that we call “QUICK HITS”.

SUMMARY: If you are a Belen Jesuit football fan, you would prefer to leave 2019 as a memory and move on.
For a program that has been used to winning and controlling their own destiny throughout the years, moving back to 6A proved not to be what this team had envisioned before the season started.
Whatever could go wrong did – and while they attempted everything possible to make a playoff push, it never happened.
As head coach Eddie Delgado moves on to Doral Academy and stellar running back Don Chaney Jr. makes the move to the University of Miami – with a few other graduations, there was some very good news.
Don Chaney Sr., a longtime assistant coach for the Wolverines and a former head coach in south Florida, moves in as head coach – and while there are several key spots to fill, he has plenty of talent – with a mix of veteran and younger players.
If this program is going to jump back into the playoff mix, a lot has to go right, and if you have followed this program long enough, you know that thy will compete and work hard to stay in this mix – right down to the end of the season.
