If the preseason favorites hold serve and win state titles in Florida this season, it is likely that some small portion of each program's national ranking will be determined this weekend.
Class 6A favorite, and the preseason No. 1 in the Sunshine State, Seffner (Fla.) Armwood will be taking on the best from Nevada - No. 7-ranked Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman.
The No. 2 team from the preseason and Class 7A favorite Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas is playing the national Game of the Week against Prattville (Ala.) High.
And three-time defending state champion, and the current No. 5 team from Florida, Cocoa (Fla.) High is in action against Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain - which is also the top ranked team in its state.
For a state that is always in the running for the top overall state for team talent, the weekend before Labor Day could bolster or burn down the perception this year.
