Four future Miami Hurricanes won a state championship last week as the Florida High School Athletic Association hosted its state title games at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee.
2021 signees James Williams (Plantation-American Heritage), Andres Borregales (Hialeah-Champagnat Catholic), and Laurence Seymore (Miami Central) concluded their high school playing careers with a state championship last week. 2023 wide receiver Lamar Seymore, a verbal commitment, also won a state title with Miami Central.
The lone signee still playing this season is quarterback Jake Garcia, who will play for the Georgia AAAAAA state championship on December 30 when Grayson (Ga.) takes on Suwanee (Ga.)-Collins Hill at 7pm in Atlanta.
Williams led Plantation-American Heritage to a win in the Class 5A state championship game with five tackles and a sack. He finished his senior season with 69 tackles, four fumble recoveries, three sacks, two interceptions, and a blocked kick returned for a touchdown.

Lamar Seymore caught a 24-yard touchdown pass late in Miami Central’s 46-0 victory over Lake Minneola in the Class 6A state championship game. Laurence Seymore anchored a Rocket offensive line that nearly rushed for 300 yards in the win.

The most disappointing loss for Hurricane signees in a state championship game came from Hollywood-Chaminade-Madonna as the Lions saw their three-year state title streak broken by Jacksonville-Trinity Christian.
2021 running back signee Thad Franklin had two touchdown runs in the loss.
Easy stuff for Thad Franklin and he throws up the U to celebrate. He signed with Miami this morning. Chaminade-Madonna leads 9-0. @Gucciboypopo already has 51-yards on 12 carries. pic.twitter.com/Qo6CJnBWbH— David Wilson (@DBWilson2) December 17, 2020
2021 defensive tackle signee Allan Haye and 2022 defensive line verbal commitment Jamaal Johnson each registered a sack in the loss for the Lions.
Now Allan Haye with a sack. He also signed with Miami today. pic.twitter.com/iy6Zzvlyt0— David Wilson (@DBWilson2) December 17, 2020

2021 tight end signee Elijah Arroyo’s high school career ended last Friday with a loss in the second round of the Texas 5A Division I playoffs. Arroyo had four catches for 40 yards and the touchdown seen below in his final high school game.
