Blue Darter Football 2017:

Apopka 5th in Associated Press Poll

The Apopka Blue Darters, coming off a 9-1 record in its 2016 season, open their 2017 campaign with a state ranking of 5th in the pre-season Associated Press Poll of Class 8A high schooll football teams. The Blue Darters spent the majority of 2016 as the #1 school on that poll.

 

Apopka beat Mainland High School of Daytona Beach 26-14 behind three touchdown runs and 185 rushing yards by junior running back Cornelius Williams, and a swarming Blue Darter defense.

 

The Blue Darters open their regular season next Friday on the road against the Ocoee Knights. Last season Apopka beat Ocoee 62-7. Kickoff is 7PM.
