After the blowout loss to Orlando Jones, will they be in this years class 5A State Championship?

Based on what I saw at the spring game and the loss to Jones, the answer is probably not unless they improve a lot as the season progresses.

Jones is for real. They have recruited heavily in Central Florida and have great speed and depth. I wouldn't buy State Championship tickets this year if I was a Raines fan.

No.  A better question might be "Will Raines even win their district?"  That question will be answered on Oct 12, televised for all of us to see.  The stakes for that game are now huge, far more than just beating your rival across the road.  Winner will be in, loser may go home...depending on what some computers have to say.  The rest of the district offers little resistance to those two.  That game will be for all the district marbles and it is a game where literally anything can and will happen.  Yikes.

I have lived here a long time.  Cannot count how many times those two have played and the expected winner ended up losing.  Records, who has the best whatever or anything else are meaningless in that game.  It's personal and those kids play all four quarters on adrenaline.  Ribault has been offensively challenged for quite a while now, but they are still 2-2 in the last four vs. a Raines squad who was in the middle of their best run in school history.  None of it matters.  Throw it all out when Raines and Ribault play.  Will be fascinating to watch unfold.

Raines beats Lee. They are the best DCPS school besides maybe Mandarin. Trinity & BT are the two best teams in the area I’d say as of right now.
