“After listening to feedback from our membership, we felt having two locations stretched out over two weeks made the most sense,” FHSAA Executive Director George Tomyn said. “This new schedule gives families and fans the most flexibility when it comes to supporting their student-athletes and we are thrilled both Visit Tallahassee and DME Marketing made this possible.”

Gene Cox Stadium has recently undergone an $800,000 renovation featuring installations of completely new field turf and a pair of HD video boards. The stadium, which features a capacity 6,500, has previously played host to the 1986 Class 3A State Championship Game between Tallahassee Godby and Clewiston.
