Class 3A Preview: Breaking it down
Continuing our in-depth look at the 2012 Florida High School Athletic Association post-season, we break down the class 3A playoffs Both defending champ American Heritage-Delray and runner-up Madison County made the post-season. Some have speculated that the 'state title game' may be played next week in south Florida - and we'll get to that.
There's not a lot of 'new blood' in this division. Perhaps one of the most intriguing matchups is unbeaten First Academy against Fort White. The Indians have played a pretty tough schedule and may pull the upset.
With all the hype surrouunding American Heritage-Delray and University School - and their anticpated second-round matchup - don't forget there are still eight teams in the north that will battle for the right to face the heir apparent.
In the north, there's the usual suspects - Madison County and Trinity Christian. Our 'darkhorse' in this class has got to be Trinity Catholic - yes, that Trinity Catholic. The Celtics are 6-4 on the field but have really stepped up their game. We're not saying that Clearwater Central Catholic or Fort Meade don't have a shot against American Heritage-University - but Pinkos and LAZ are.
If you're looking for a sleeper in the south - take Chaminade Prep. The Lions gave U-school a handful until the game got away from them.
