For the second straight year, a hurricane has washed-out a high school football showdown between national powers IMG Academy and St. John’s College High School. Due to Hurricane Florence approaching the eastern seaboard, officials have, at least for now, called off Saturday’s scheduled game.

However, as you can see from the following tweets, it looks like officials are hoping to possibly play the game later this year.

Last year, Hurricane Irma caused the cancellation of the game.

St. John’s is currently ranked No. 3 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, while IMG is No. 6.
