In two full games plus an overtime period, the difference between Glades Day and Jupiter Christian was merely six points.
The Gators, who went on to win a state championship, and Eagles were widely considered the best two teams in their class and each had three players named to the all-state team for Class 1B, which was compiled by Florida media members.
For Glades Day, running back Kelvin Taylor, offensive lineman Tony Kibler and defensive back Ricky Christmas made the list. The Gators also had four players on the second team.
Jupiter Christian quarterback Marshyl Rothman, linebacker Will Powers and wide receiver Westin Pedersen were repeat selections.
