Two future Miami Hurricanes advanced to their respective state championship games thanks to late game-winning field goals last Friday night.

2021 linebacker verbal commitment Deshawn Troutman and Orlando-Edgewater squeaked past Niceville 30-28 thanks to a field goal with four seconds left that was good by the slimmest of margins.

James Williams and Plantation-American Heritage are heading to the Class 5A state championship after a 16-13 victory over Tampa Jesuit. The Patriots also were the benefit of a late field goal to win.

Miami Central is heading back to the state championship game as well. The Rockets drilled Palmetto 47-20 to qualify for the 6A state title game. Brothers, and Cane verbal commitments, Laurence Seymore (2021) and Lamar Seymore (2023) will play for the 6A title on Friday.

Valdosta (Ga.)-Lowndes and 2021 defensive end verbal commitment Thomas Davis are still alive in the Georgia AAAAAA playoffs. Davis made one tackle in his team’s 23-13 victory over Milton (Ga.) last Friday.

The illustrious high school careers of 2021 verbal commitments Leonard Taylor and Brashard Smith ended last Saturday. Miami Palmetto lost to Kissimmee-Osceola 9-3 at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami.

Taylor was his typical dominant self but the team struggled offensively.

In total, eight Miami Hurricane commitments will play for a state championship this week from Wednesday through Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee.
