2021 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS: PLAYOFF MATCHUPS AND TIMES

PUBLISHED
Sun, Dec 5, 2021 12:00 PM


It's the start of the championship week in the State of Florida as Classes 1A-3A teams get ready to battle for the pinnacle of a long 16 week high school football season: State Championship Trophies. This 2021 season was full of great gridiron action and, unlike the 2020 season, was slightly hampered by the threat of COVID-19, thus allowing for a full statewide competition of all participatory schools from the Panhandle to The Keys.

CLASSES 1A-3A


The 2021 State Championship Games will be played at Gene Cox Stadium in the state capital of Tallahassee from December 9-11, 2021.

One state championship game will be played each night at 7pm during this three-day span at Gene Cox. Below is the schedule for games at Gene Cox Stadium in Tallahassee during the first week of State Championship Games.


2A STATE TITLE


Thursday, December 9, 2021
7PM

TRINITY CHRISTIAN Conquerors (Jacksonville) vs. CHAMPAGNAT CATHOLIC Lions (Hialeah)
Gene Cox Stadium -- Tallahassee, FL
2A State Championship Game Preview

3A STATE TITLE


Friday, December 10, 2021
7PM

BERKELEY PREP Buccaneers (Tampa, FL) vs. CHAMINADE-MADONNA Lions (Hollywood, FL)

3A State Championship Game Preview

1A STATE TITLE


December 11, 2021
7PM

MADISON COUNTY Cowboys (Madison, FL) vs.HAWTHORNE Hornets (Hawthorne, FL)
Gene Cox Stadium -- Tallahassee, FL
1A State Championship Game Preview


Gene Cox Stadium is the site of three previous state championship games in 2019:
3A -- CHAMINADE-MADONNA beat Florida 35-20
2A -- CHAMPAGNAT CATHOLIC beat Victory Christian 35-14
1A -- MADISON COUNTY beat Blountstown 70-35


CLASSES 4A-8A


DRV PNK Stadium is the interim home of the the Major League Soccer (MLS) Inter Miami CF soccer team, and was the former site of the legendary Lockhart Stadium, where many South Florida legends played and also the site where Hollywood Hills captured their one and only state championship (Class 4A) with a 22-9 win over Jacksonville Raines in 1973.

The placement of the larger class state championship games in South Florida should come as a welcomed location. South Florida, consisting of teams from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, alone have collectively won 23 of the 40 state championship titles in the last five years. That's right, 23 of 40... over half, 50%. These 3 counties, in Florida's large array of 67 counties, have won over half of the state championships in the last 5 years. South Florida teams have been dominant and a shift of location for larger classifications should lend to more populated games due to less travel time and the ability for professionals to attend work and attend a state championship game during the same day.
