Tiger Pride

My alma mater, Pensacola High School won the Florida 3A Football championship, “completing the greatest football season in school history.” We sure showed that Miami Jesuit school, just like an old debate tournament back in my day.

This year’s finish was certainly better than my senior year when we had an excellent team, but an unfortunate sex scandal and cover-up got in the way of a state championship (and cost the school’s administration their jobs).
I haven’t been to a PHS football game since the fall of 2007, but I could tell that great things were on the horizon, even then:

I love Florida-style Friday Night Lights stories. PHS may not be powerhouse St. Thomas Acquinas (the Florida 5A Powerhouse and the number #1 high school football team in the nation according to most, but who actually lost their state championship game), but we will take it (According to Max Preps, PHS is just out of the top 100 teams in the nation list).

Big year for the Tigers. Big year.

Interested in more coverage of Pensacola’s successful year, read this article. Very, very moving. They should make a movie. I am sure Sandra Bullock could be coaxed into starring in some role.
