The spring football jamboree at Alonso High on May 24 was cancelled due to heavy thunderstorms that rolled in prior to kickoff. The contest was set to feature match-ups of Gaither vs. Sickles and Alonso vs. Steinbrenner.
Assistant county athletic director Jennifer Burchill said because of Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) rules, the scrimmage could not be made up because the participating programs had already reached the limit of 20 spring practice days.
Cowboys coach Jason Stokes told The Laker/Lutz News in a text message he was disappointed for his players.
“(Stinks) for the kids,” Stokes said. “They were really excited to finally hit somebody else, but we just have to move on (and) get ready for the fall.”
