Armwood Hawks Face Titans on Tampa Bay Tech Turf in Tampa

Game time Sept. 14 is 7:30 p.m. for the Armwood Hawks, as they travel to face the Tampa Bay Tech Titans in Tampa.

 

The Armwood Hawks, following last week's 36-28 loss against the American Heritage (Plantation) Stallions, take to the field tonight in Tampa against the Tampa Bay Tech Titans. The Brandon Eagles will be playing at home against Freedom High.

Armwood faces the Titans, who are 0-0 in league play and 2-0 overall. The team's national ranking is 755; its state ranking, 62, according to MaxPreps.com. The Titans reportedly moved up 58 spots on the national ranking and nine on the state ranking.

Meanwhile, the Hawks, 1-1 overall, and 0-0 in league play, dropped 22 spots in the national ranking and three in the state's. The Hawks are ranked 47 nationally and 8 in the state, according to the MaxPreps.com report.

The Sept. 14 contest at 6410 Orient Road kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with the Hawks having amassed 116 points overall while giving up 36. In addition to the 36-28 loss against the Stallions on Sept. 7, the Hawks beat the Brandon Eagles 55-0 in Seffner and scored a two-quarter, 35-0 preseason victory against Gibbs on Aug. 31.

That game was held to two quarters because caused two games to be played at the Lyle Flagg Field in one night. In the first game that night, Tampa Bay Tech defeated Jefferson (27-7).

Armwood is the Greater Brandon area's perennial powerhouse — but not immune to following the rules. The Florida High School Athletic Association in June held the program accountable for using ineligible players and then stripped the team of its 2011 Class 6A state championship. The Hawks' 2010 state runner-up status was negated as well.

According to a Forbes sports & leisure report, the school had to "send back the trophies associated with those appearances" and the FHSAA "also fine the school $12,743, and made it forfeit 26 wins."

The Hillsborough County School Board on Sept. 11 officially adopted a new policy affecting student-athletes who transfer to new schools. (See, .)
