    >>What about students from Central?

    Central High is not in our regular North Escambia coverage area. Jay is in our secondary coverage area. Jay submitted the information to highlight their athletes, and we did.Central did not provide any information.

    (For those unfamiliar, Central High has a Milton address, and is located in central Santa Rosa County.)
