With every signing ceremony, there must come at least a little theatrics…

At Pahokee, De’Joshua Johnson dug something Tennessee orange out of a box and tossed it over his shoulder before pulling out a Florida State hat and putting it on, Raheam Buxton threw a Miami hat into the crowd at the auditorium before donning a Western Michigan hat (Miami pulled its offer to him), and Chris Dunkley announced he was looking forward to the next THREE years at Florida.

Dunkley obviously has big plans for himself at Florida and beyond.

Pahokee, Atlantic ready to break in Anquan Boldin Stadium

  • 3:47 pm Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009 by Jason Lieser

Neither Atlantic nor Pahokee was able to schedule a spring game, so it has been months since their players hit anyone else on another team. Couple that with the fact that Pahokee is opening a brand-new stadium and it will produce a raucous atmosphere for Friday’s game.
