For awhile, it looked like there might not be high school football in Florida this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Starting Wednesday, the state’s eight championship games will be played at Doak Campbell Stadium on the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee.
“The FHSAA is excited about the upcoming Florida High School Football State Championships to be hosted at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee,” said FHSAA Executive Director, George Tomyn in the release. “Creating opportunities for our student-athletes has been a top priority of ours this year and finding a facility large enough to safely host all who wish to attend, is a dream come true. We have worked with the folks at Visit Tallahassee and in Leon County for many years now with great success and we could not be more grateful for their efforts in making these championships a reality for the student-athletes of the State of Florida.”
The last time Doak Campbell hosted the state title games was in 2001 and 2002.
