These two powerhouses of Florida high school football have unparalleled talent. Look around next season, and you’ll see 30 of the players in this game playing in front of 50, 60, maybe 90 thousand fans in college stadiums across the country. On the St. Thomas Aquinas side, you’ve got Jordan Battle, one of the best safeties in the nation committed to Ohio State. You’ve also got Jaden Davis, one of the best cornerbacks in the country committed to Oklahoma. The two of them help form one of the best secondaries in all of high school football.
On the other side of the field you’ll see Henry Gray, another of the best cornerbacks in the country, playing for Miami Central and committed to the Miami Hurricanes. They’ve also got Kejon Owens, an explosive running back considering UK, Pitt, and U of L.
This one will be an absolute barnburner. Tune in LIVE!
St. Thomas Aquinas :27
Miami Central :43
This heavyweight battle was hugely anticipated by fans of not just Florida football, but college football fans across the nation, as countless D-1 recruits lined up against each other to do battle in Fort Lauderdale. In the end, senior QB for Miami Central Maurice Underwood was just a little too much for the St. Thomas Aquinas defense, scoring four touchdowns on the ground and another one through the air to help lead the Rockets from Miami Central to a famous 43-27 victory over St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Thomas Aquinas jumped ahead in this one early, but Underwood would not let his team fall too far behind, keeping them in the game. Eventually the Rockets got within a field goal in the third quarter. From there, Underwood took over and led the Rocket offense to the lead and expanded on that lead. St. Thomas Aquinas would not go quietly after that, fighting and clawing, but the Miami Central defense shut them down and eventually helped them win the game 43-27.
