FHSAA determines Miami Central used ineligible quarterback 

By Matt Porter

Trivia time: who played in Florida’s 2011 Class 6A football state championship game?

Technically, no one.

The game was held in January — Seffner-Armwood beat Miami Central at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando — but since then, the FHSAA ruled both teams committed season-erasing eligibility violations.

On Wednesday, the FHSAA declared Miami Central quarterback Austin Stock’s offseason transfer from Parkland-Douglas violated state rules. It will force Miami Central to vacate its 13-1 season.

In June, the FSHSAA stripped Armwood of two years of football success, including the 2011 state title.

Miami Central’s 2011 began with a dominant kickoff classic win over Dwyer. At the time, the Rockets were noted for welcoming in some of Miami-Dade’s top senior prospects via transfer.

Denarvise Thornton, the FHSAA’s associate executive director for compliance and eligibility, told the Sentinel he believes this to be the first time both teams in a FHSAA state title game were forced to vacate their seasons.
