They say it's good while it lasted. And it was at Oxbridge.
Oxbridge Academy has announced that it has decided to shut down their football program for the upcoming season. The Thunderwolves just came off a 10-2 season, playing in last year's 3A State Championship, only to came up short due to a late game-winning field goal from Chaminade-Madonna.
Oxbridge dominated on the gridiron in 2017, scoring a whopping 448 points, and only allowing a stifling 84 points over 12 games (a TD a game). They had an explosive offense which scored 62 points in the 1st half vs. Flanagan HS. In 2016, the Thunderwolves had levels of success: a 10-2 record, a #1 Ranking, .... only to have an early playoff exit to Chaminade-Madonna, whom they would meet in the forthcoming year to battle for the state crown.
In only a matter of 6 years on Florida's gridiron, the Thunderwolves had made a great name for themselves .... Oxbridge evolved into a strong South Florida powerhouse program in this short amount of time, developing heavily coveted recruits and teams that dominated foes on their schedule.
This leaves top players like highly touted LB and newly minted Indiana commit Dorian Jones, FAU QB commit Gio Richardson, and others looking for a high school to transfer and get acquainted in the next months before the start of fall practice.
More to come on this evolving story.
