Yes, Janoris Jenkins #16 Pahokee's Sophomore DB in 2005. Trinity Catholic's first championship game and it was against the powerful Blue  Devils who had been to the championship game a few times. The Celtics just managed to slip by Pahokee 37-30 on a late TD by our truly very good RB Rudell Small. Jenkis went on to Play for Florida and then played for the Rams, Giants, and Saints. He is still with the Saints.

Robert Love. In a loss to OTC set state records in passing yards, completions, total yards. 

He had the best mechanics of any PK quarterback, wish he got a shot at the next level.

My understanding is that he was too small at the time for D-1 colleges to be interested in him. That is what I was told. Don't really know how he would have done in a major college football program. He was one of the best in high school though.

Yeah. He's about 5'9. I was thinking something like FAMU/BCU that level. Kid was a pure pocket passer and his fundamentals was on point.

He has some epic debates/arguements with Alphonso Smith on their place in Pahokee football history on Facebook. Those are some funny times.

Georgia, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee, and Syracuse were scouting him in 2006 when he was a Senior. They have him listed at 5' 11", 185.  Love went on to play for FAMU in 2007 as a Redshirt Freshman. Had some academic problems so do not know if he progressed any further.

I have to admit that Pahokee made a lot of mistakes in that game that allowed my Celtics to build up a 30-7 halftime lead. Also, Let's face it the Celtics were good enough to take advantage of those mistakes. Remember Pahokee was a powerhouse that had won a few championships and most of them with ease. It was the Celtics first time in the finals. We got cocky I believe and thought the game was won. Robert love had other plans. Pahokee scored 3 TDs and a touch back to tie the score in the 2nd half mostly through the effort of QB Love. Late in the 4th quarter the Celtic's RB Rudell Small ripped off a 65 yard run right up the middle to put the Celtics up 37-30 which is how the game ended. The Celtics defeated one of the best teams in Florida and one of the best teams of all time. Quite an accomplishment.

That was a classic battle. The two communities had a great deal of respect for each other based on those classic matchups. That Pahokee team was extremely dangerous. They were loaded with size and speed but Rudell Small slipped right through the middle for a huge, last minute run.

    • Perspective, I will try to answer your questions.   1. The reason why officials seem to hesitate to blow their whistles is  because the whistle very rarely ends the play itself. Usually, the result of the play, such as a runner running out-of-bounds or a receiver making a catch on the ground. In those type of situations, a defensive player is not going to make a tackle or hit an offensive player after that action just because a whistle did not blow. Forward progress can be tricky, and it is usually better to wait to blow the whistle, and then determine the result of the play instead of blowing a whistle immediately which automatically ends the play. 2. The coaches teaching the players to play to the whistle is incorrect, and most officials would urge coaches to stop teaching that phrase. The result of the play ends the play, not the whistle unless it is an inadvertent whistle. 3. By the letter of the rule the officials do not have the authority to send out a player to the sideline. However, there is an understanding among coaches and officials of the idea of a penalty box, meaning an official can point out to a coach that one of his players is getting out of control, and needs a 'cooling off' period without drawing a penalty. The player then can come back into the game at the coaches discretion. I do not know of one high school coach who has every declined this arrangement. 4. That sounds like a blown call by the officiating crew.
    • I was looking forward to that Chaminade v Cocoa matchup this season. Hopefully they had a home n home setup
    • The Bloodhounds are a bit unsettled at QB, so Lake Gibson's stout defense was too much. Assuming Lake Gibson is able to play Lakeland next week (a big assumption with Covid), LG might ought to be a slight favorite. Lakeland has been completely shut down since Sep. 8, and won't be able to do anything until Tuesday of game week.
    • Thad Franklin got hurt late in the game. AHP has a very athletic defense that owned CM's big O-line. You would think Thad Franklin on a rainy night behind that O-line would be able to score, but no.  CM's O-line needs work on blocking. CM is a very formidable team in 3A.  But I do not think the Lions have the firepower on offense to be considered one of the best teams in the state amongst all classes.    Both teams have quick D's that will give offenses trouble.  AHP's offense needs some reps.           
    • Lions had their chance.  Thad Franklin broke off a big run but Lions fumbled it on the next play due to bad exchange from qb.
