The Jacksonville Wolverines are Florida state champions after beating Cardinal Gibbons 24-19 in the state final Saturday.
Florida’s high School champion is going to be a little bit closer to being picked with the state semis this coming weekend.
After the regional playoffs produced two winners, the top two from each region play off in a crossover semifinal Saturday. Jupiter is at Orland and Jacksonville is at Cardinal Gibbons.
Don't look now, but Cardinal Gibbons is 3-0 in Florida HS action.
The single-school team has beaten St. Thomas Aquinas, Boca Raston, and, most recently, West Pines to lead its league. It's a good start, said Coach Eric Aumann.
The Florida HS playoffs continue this weekend after a day of surprise results last week.
In Region 1, Naples is at Orlando, and Westside is at Tampa. Those are region semifinal matchups that were decided a week ago. Tampa has beaten Orlando twice and Naples twice. Meanwhile, Naples and Orlando have not played each other, but Orlando has dominated in their pool.
