Florida HSFB Report Week 3-Hurricane Irma Week

The Florida high school football week 3 schedule was hit heavy by the approaching Hurricane Irma. Some games were moved up to Thursday, others were cancelled, some were postponed with uncertainty of if they will ever be played. Other games were played even out-of-state on Friday. Here are the games of interest that we followed this week.

Vanguard (3-0) handed rival North Marion (0-3) its third straight loss to open a season for the first time since 1994. The Knights jumped on the Colts early and often and ran away with a 45-0 victory. Vanguard is a heavy favorite in the Marion County area and has contender status in the 6A class under fourth-year head coach Edwin Farmer. Knights’ quarterback Marquez Glover passed for over 250 yards and three touchdowns passing.

The game was never in doubt as Vanguard raced to a 31-0 halftime lead and early in the third quarter enforced Florida’s running clock rule after going up 38-0. Vanguard capped the scoring when backup quarterback Trevonte Rucker hit Russell Tolbert for a 15-yard touchdown pass for the final 45-0 margin.

The shutout ended a 94-game streak for North Marion and the 45-point defeat was their worst shutout loss since 1983.

Hurricane Irma did not halt all Florida High School Football

Miami Central (3-0) was able to leave south Florida on Wednesday ahead of Hurricane Irma for the pacific time zone. The Rockets had a nationally televised date with Nevada power and private school Bishop Gorman (1-2). Gorman is ranked higher than Miami Central in most every respectable national poll but were coming of their first loss last week to Mater Dei (CA).That loss snapped Gorman’s 55-game winning streak.

Miami Central was unfazed by the lore of Bishop Gorman and represented the state of Florida and southeastern high school  well coming away with a 24-14 victory.

James Cook rushed for over 200 yards with rushing touchdowns of 83 and 87 yards. Cook’s 87-yard touchdown run came moments after an interception by Chris Metayer inside the Bishop Gorman five with less than four minutes remaining in the game. The Rockets win marked the first time Bishop Gorman had loss consecutive games since 2006.

Camden County’s J.J. Green Gives UGA Verbal.

J.J. Green has been doing it in Kingsland, Ga since he was a freshmen. Freshmen normally don’t start for Jeff Herron at the Wing-T powerhouse on the Georgia Coast, Camden County. You have freshmen and then you have J.J. Green. Chris Gillman Stadium is a spectacle in itself with tailgating and all as you arrive on the campus. However when J.J. Green crosses the goal line in his chosen fashion, rather via run, pass, return or kick return, it really lights up.

J.J. Green scores on a 10 yard run vs Windsor Forest in 2010.

Miami Central was in town one night a year after Camden County won their last 5A State Championship (footnote: Miami Central will play at 5A 2011 Champion Grayson in 2012-Grayson is now in 6A) loaded with talent, man could Cato throw the football-heck the Rockets can play! J.J. Green however could return kicks and when he broke wide open down the left side you kinda knew this sophomore was the deal, why, because he was simply picking up where he left off as a freshman against a nationally respected out-of-state football team.

Green announced this week that he was going to attend the University of Georgia. For the Mr. All-Everything there is no telling where and what he will do for the Bulldog football team.

Green told Kipp Adams…

“I just committed to the University of Georgia,” Green said Monday afternoon. “I told Coach Richt, and he smiled and gave me a big hug.”

Hines Ward was the last that stepped in and did everything to win, is JJ Green that? Jacquez Green got the better of Hines in their Cocktail Party get-together. Hines was football, Jacquez was football and flare you had to have loved it. So now the nephew of Jacquez is going to be wearing silver britches just south of home in Jacksonville for a Cocktail Party get-together…aaaah man come it’s gonna fun coming up soon.

Wait hold up… there is still 2012 to play wake up… J.J. Green gets to rock Camden County Blue one more time for a shot at a 6A State Championship, could a South Georgia school such as Camden County claim the first ever 6A championship in Georgia? Region 1 pretty thick folks. Starting QB Brice Ramsey who is going to Georgia as well, will be back tossing it around to J.J. Green while kicking 50-odd yard field goals. Just watch those two-point conversions.

More on J.J. Green in the future, until then take a look at #5…
