HAVANA — Gadsden County High School remains as one of the few teams left in our local area still in the hunt for a state title.

To refresh your memory a bit the Jaguars were set to play Rutherford last Friday in the 4A region semifinals. Rutherford school officials were forced to cancel the game due to Covid-19.

So the Jags advanced to the region finals where they’ll go against a familiar opponent in Marianna. Gadsden County shut-out the Bulldogs in their season opener. Since then it’s been a roller-coaster of a season for Corey Fuller and his squad. But through their adversity he believes his team is more than prepared for tomorrow’s game.

"I believe in the football gods. We came into the season with coronavirus , we had to play Mariana the first game on about three days of practice, maybe a week and half at most. Then we got shut right back down, couldn’t play Florida High or Wakulla," said Gadsden County head football coach Corey Fuller. "Then we had to play Trinity Chrisitain coming off the virus. So honestly the way I see it setup, it’s helped us, the kids didn't miss a beat. They weren’t frustrated or mad they didn’t play last week because of what happened to us previously. And we adjusted very well.”

Gadsden County's game against Marianna is set for 7:30 tomorrow night.
