Hillsborough County trivia

Recommended Posts

I’m gonna post 5 questions at a time and see if anyone knows the answers to these fun facts

1. Tampa Catholic began playing varsity football in 1963. They are considered Jesuit’s arch rival. Since Jesuit has been around since the 20’s, who was Jesuit’s main rival before 1963? St. Leo High

2. What color did Armwood have in their uniforms when they were playing in the mid 80’s? It was an homage to the team they relieved due to overcrowding. Maroon

3. Name every team from Hillsborough that has won a FHSAA Football State Championship. Armwood, Plant, Jefferson, Jesuit, Blake and Pinecrest

4. When Tampa Catholic began playing football they were referred to something other than the Crusaders. What was the name? The Colts

5. Plant City merged with 3 other schools in 1972. What was the name of all 3 schools? Marshall, Pinecrest, Turkey Creek

This is the one I'm 100% positive I know the answer to, but out of respect. I won't spoil it. A hint would be it also starts with a C.

I'm going to take a guess at #1. Was it St. Leo? St Leo in Pasco county is now a college only but once both a high school and a college.

That’s right!! They been playing since at least 1924 and were Jesuit’s main rival. I believe they stopped fielding a high school team in the 60’s

    • That has nothing to do with the topic.
    • Is that why 2 years ago they had no backup plan for a unexpected need to change the venue at the state finals?    
    • As much crap we give Ga. posters, the GHSA is always on point. The FHSAA knows what they need to do, but the problem with doing the right thing is it makes too much sense. 
    • Does anyone know if Celtic QB Dominac Brinser transferred to North Marion? He was on the Celtic's roster in early May and now he is on the North Marion roster. I thought he was being primed as the starting QB for Trinity this season and he looks good in his Hudl videos.
    • I understand that but that's why I'm saying I'm against there being a deadline for schedules    We can't control that so many teams have no interest in playing us (even though many players on those teams will always talk crap on social media about being better than us and us being garbage yet are not gonna put money where their mouth is)   We are gonna need every second possible to find games    I think long term this is going to force us to have to travel to Central or South FL or even OOS in the future to get games scheduled since many in North Florida will not want to play them (in other words we will have to follow the blueprint of TCA schedule to find games which I'm personally fine with as it will get us a lot of respect for playing those kind of games)   I guess the same could be said locally for Lake City middle who since merging Richardson and LCMS has not been welcomed in their previous conference (even though both schools were in the conference when they were 2 separate schools) and have to now play South GA schools to get some games as they playing lowndes middle and Valdosta middle this fall     I get what you saying @gatorman-uf but I just wish some schools in North Florida had the same attitude that those Broward and Dade schools had of taking on any challenge and not worrying about wins or losses in the process because any game against top level competition will build toughness and gain respect
