Season Outlook: Coming off another Class 7A State Championship victory in 2021 that brought the state record for most football state championships at any school in Florida to 13. As it seems to be most years, the Raiders graduate a lot of seniors – 45 from last year’s squad – but always have a lot of athletes ready to step up and lead for the next team to be state championship contenders. Only eight starters overall return for Coach Harriott’s team, but overall, the team has over two dozen players in the 2023 and 2024 classes that are holding Division I offers, which is not unheard of for one of the state’s top football programs. The expectation for 2022 is once again the Raiders will be in contention for a state championship and they are considered the favorite to win it all in the all-new Class 3M. Coach Harriott tells FloridaHSFootball.com that he is blessed to serve the Lord in faith, family, tradition, and excellence, which are values he brings to the Raiders each season.
