With Hurricane Irma bearing-down on all of Florida, Miami Central, ranked No. 34 in the High School Football America Top 100, gave Sunshine State high school football fans something to smile about as the Rockets beat defending national champ Bishop Gorman (Nevada) 24-20 in Las Vegas Friday night.
Irma basically shutdown high school football for this week and maybe next, but the Rockets, who will spend extra days out west because of the storm, left Miami on Wednesday for the game that was televised nationally on ESPNU.

“I’m so proud of Central nation and they did a tremendous job representing South Florida tonight,” said Central head coach Roland Smith on ESPNU. “Our hearts and our prayers are with everyone back home and we hope they can weather the storm well like we were able to here in Vegas against these guys.”
