University School of NSU Football Team Plays in State Championship & Coach Honored as One of Florida’s Best (Multiple Outlets)

For the first time in University School of Nova Southeastern University (NSU) history, the Suns Varsity Football team played in a State Championship final, and was defeated by a narrow one-point margin in triple overtime. The final score was 56-55. The team played in the Class 2B state football championship against Trinity Catholic at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Dec. 11. The Sun-Sentinel covered the nail-bitting finish here.

The team fought hard and had a great season, going 13-1. Several of the team’s players and its coach have also received media coverage for their notable abilities, including:

  • Suns receivers Jordan Cunningham, Nicholas Kutscher, Macgarrett Kings and Daniel Braverman who were recently profiled in the Miami Herald.
  • Suns quarterback Douglas Cook who was recently profiled in the Miami Herald.
  • Suns coach Roger Harriott who was named Florida’s 2B Coach of the Year and is in the running to become Florida’s overall Coach of the Year. During his five years with the school, he has helped the team become a Broward County powerhouse and has compiled a 50-11 record. He was profiled in the Sun-Sentinel and Miami Herald.

The football team’s outlook for 2011 looks equally as bright as 2010 has been. Check out this preview of next season which recently ran in the Miami Herald.
