  1. 1. Who is he? 2. At what hs was he head coach before retiring? 3. He was the sixth hc in FHSAA history to do what? 4. What NFL Hall-of-Famer did he coach in hs?
  2. It is Mike Bennett, who coached at Pensacola High for 19 years. He led them to a 3A state title in 2009. They made it all the way to the state semis two other years (96 and 04). This past year, he took Escambia to the state title game.
  3. It is Bob Hudson, who has spent the last 17 seasons at East Lake in Pasco County. During that tenure, he won 123 games and appeared in 2 state semifinals (2013 and 2014). That 2014 loss was heartbreaker in OT versus Dwyer. His teams appeared in 5 regional finals this past decade.
  4. It is the Davis Brothers of Southridge. Undefeated Southridge blasted Manatee 69-36 in the 1993 5A finals. Troy Davis returned a kickoff for 97 yards in the first half and his brother, Darren went for 99 in the second half. That is just part of the damage these brothers did in a nightmare for Manatee. That 93 Southridge team was loaded and could easily make a case for the best team of the 90's, if not one of the better teams ever.
  5. In one state final of the past, two brothers each returned a kickoff 95+ yards for a TD in the same game. Who are the brothers and for what team did they play?
  6. Who is he? Where has he coached? Against what team did he have a heartbreaking loss that kept him out of a state final?
  7. ColumbiaFan told me you are like 0-5 against him in pickems. Is that true?
  8. You might find this interesting. There was some serious speed even back in the 70's.
  9. Who is he? At what high school did he spend much of his career? Did he ever coach in a state final?
  10. It is Randy Hallock, who was the head coach at Titusville Astronaut for 20 years. He retired after the 2016 season. His 1999 team made it to the 3A state semifinals, where they lost to Suwannee. In 2000, Astronaut was 3A state runner-up to some team named Glades Central.
  11. In 2003, Miami Killian High School running back Bobby Washington became the all time career leading rusher in Miami-Dade County history with 5,695 yards, breaking the old record held by Frank Gore of Coral Gables. Washington finished his high school career at the Orange Bowl during a loss to Miami Carol City High School in a state semifinal playoff game. He began his prep career at Archbishop Carroll High School, where he started as a 9th grader. Washington then transferred to Killian and became a 3-time All Dade County selection. He earned Parade All American honors as a senior. Rated the nation's second best running back recruit behind Adrian Peterson, Washington signed his letter of intent with the University of Miami. Due to complications with his college entrance test scores, he was refused admission to UM. . Washington ultimately enrolled at North Carolina State to play for former Florida State assistant Chuck Amato. NC State's roster at the time was filled with former Killian players, including NFL linebacker Stephen Tulloch. However, Washington struggled to win the starting job at NC State. He transferred to Eastern Kentucky, where he surpassed 1,500 yards rushing as a senior. Washington was undrafted by the NFL. He had tryouts with the Dolphins, Eagles and Rams, but never made an NFL roster.
  12. Travis Henry, a Frostproof grad and one of the greatest rb's in FL hs history, played 4 years at Tennessee, rushing for 3,078 yards. He made the All-SEC team in 2000, his senior year. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills, where he became one of the Bills' all-time leading rushers. Henry played for 7 seasons in the NFL, where he rushed for about 6,000 career yards. Playing for Tennessee in a game that featured one of the most improbable endings in NCAA history, Travis Henry(#20) took over at the end of the game and scored the winning touchdown. The fun starts at about 4:00, when everyone thought the game was over. The article below discusses the game. http://knoxblogs.com/volhistorian/2007/11/14/the_stoerner_stumble/
  13. In 1996, playing for Frostproof High, Travis Henry rushed for 4087 yards and 34 TD's , averaging 11.3 yards per carry. In the 3A state title game in Daytona Beach, Henry rushed for a state title game record 328 yards. That effort enabled him to break a 43 year-old national record for the most rushing yards in a season. Unfortunately, it was not enough, and Frostproof lost the title game to two-time defending state champion Union County. That season, he shattered the state single-season rushing record of 2,969 yards set by University Christian's Willie McClendon in 1987. He rushed for 14 straight 200-yard games and finished with 19 in all. Henry finished his hs career with 7,221 rushing yards and 79 touchdowns.
