West Florida’s Dream Season Comes To Ends In The Final Four

December 2, 2017

It was an agonizing loss Friday night for West Florida High School as they fell 48-28 to Baker County, but also a night filled with Jaguar pride.

Friday night’s state 5A semifinal game, played at Woodham Middle School in Pensacola, was the end of the road for the Jaguars. It was the longest road West Florida’s football team has ever traveled as their first appearance in a state semifinal game.

And while the road ended with tears, it was paved with plenty of Jaguar pride in their 12-2 season record, the best ever in school history.

Keyshawn Helton scored a couple of touchdowns – 4 and 29 yarders — in the first quarter from. Junior Trevor Jordan added another Jag touchdown in the third quarter from 23-yards out, and  Michael Redding scored on a 22-yard pass from Jordan in the fourth quarter.

Baker County will face American Heritage next Friday night at Camping World Stadium in Orlando in the 5A state championship game.
