USF Lands 8 Local Players

Tampa, Florida-- USF Head Coach Willie Taggart has yet to coach a game for the Bulls, but already he is looking like a winner on National Signing Day. 

Wednesday, USF landed eight local players who will be playing on Saturdays next fall at Raymond James Stadium. 

Those players include:

Plant's Robert Weiner to coach at USF

TAMPA, Florida -- Plant High School head coach Robert Weiner told 10 News Friday evening at the Under Armour All-American game that he would leave his job at the school "if it was the right situation." Weiner has now reportedly found that right situation, accepting a job as wide receivers coach for the University of South Florida.

Weiner built the Plant Panthers program into a national powerhouse over his nine seasons. Plant captured four class 8A state titles and competed in five state championship contests since Weiner took over in 2004.

Bob Henriquez resigns as Tampa Catholic football coach

Tampa, FL-- Head Football Coach Bob Henriquez has resigned from Tampa Catholic, to concentrate on his new job as Hillsborough County Property Appraiser.

Henriquez was elected last month.

He was TC's head coach for 17 seasons, where his teams won 128 games, and made the playoffs 13 times.

 

Durant advances with 34-7 win over TBT

Durant, Fl - The Durant Cougars, a team looking for a state championship and some respect, advanced on both areas, with a 34-7 second round playoff victory over the Tampa Bay Tech Titans.

The Cougars hadn't won a playoff game since 2003, but now have won two in a row, and are a perfect 12-0 for the season.

Jesuit Upsets Rival Tampa Catholic 17-3

Whenever rivals Tampa Catholic and Jesuit collide you can expect a grudge match...which was the case this Friday.   However unlike years past, only one of these two perennial powerhouses will be advancing to the playoffs, but that didn't mean much in this game.

In the first quarter the Crusaders got on the board first with a 21-yard field goal from Michael Sarafinos to make it 3-0 Tampa Catholic.  And surprisingly that's how it would stand going into the half.

Durant Cougars perfect 10-0 with 31-0 win over King

Durant, Florida - The Durant Cougars made school history when they beat the King Lions 31-0, posting their first undefeated regular season.

The Cougars wrapped up the Class 7A-District 8 title a couple of weeks ago, but on senior night at the Ron Frost Sports Complex, everyone was focused on the number 10, as in 10-0 and doing something no other Durant football team had done before.
