Look out private high school football teams, because the Knights are coming. On September 4th the season begins and if it’s anything like last year, you better bring your A-game.
The local private school Clearwater Academy International started its football program in 2008 and since then has been a force to be reckoned with. Since 2012 their varsity team remains undefeated and continues to take home trophy after trophy.
Now, normally, I wouldn't be the one being so excited about this. I’m not much of a football fan, but watching these guys play is legitimately intense. Despite often doubling the score of the other team, they never seem to get cocky, even when they pull off plays bordering on insane. During some of the games I managed to attend, I watched three separate occasions of mad dash sprints across tens of yards. And even in one case all the way from one end zone to the other.
So, if you’re interested in watching some football in person, I’d recommend checking them out. Their first game is at Land O Lakes, Florida, against Academy at the Lakes at 7 PM, and promises to be something to see. And if you can't make it to that one, check out their game against FISH, at Brandon, Florida next Friday at 7:30 PM.
