The Central Florida Sports Commission, the City of Orlando, Edgewater High School and Orange County Public Schools are the co-hosts for the state finals.
“With several of the teams ranked nationally in various polls, there will be no shortage of talent on the field,” said Central Florida Sports Commission President & CEO John Bisignano. “With these great teams, including hometown Apopka High School playing Saturday night, the atmosphere this weekend is sure to be electric.”
