The 2013 football season has come to a close with the class 5A through 8A championships - all being won by teams from South Florida.

The talent level was about where it has been expected to be - with several Rivals250 members from both 2014 and 2015 present - and they didn't fail to put on a show.

Here's some of the top performers from the weekend of big school championships.

Class 5A - American Heritage 66 Clay 8

  • - Torrance Gibson - a class of 2015 Rivals100 member, didn't disappoint in leading American Heritage-Plantation to a big win over Green Cove Springs Clay. Gibson ran for 154 yards on 14 carries, and added 1 TD. His 78 yard touchdown run was all speed. Also went 9 of 10 for 161 yards and 2 TDs passing.

  • - Isaiah McKenzie - American Heritage-Plantation (Notre Dame)- had four catches for 89 yards and 1 touchdown. He also spent time returning Clay's many punts, adding three punt returns for 108 yards.

    Class 6A - Miami Central 52 Armwood 7

    Both Cook and Phillips are verbally committed to Florida.

    For Armwood, things didn't go well offensively, and the defense had plenty of chances to make an impact.

    As for Cowart, the Rockets neutralized the No. 4 player in the 2015 Rivals100. Cowart did not record a tackle or assist in the game.
