IMG Academy (1-0) opened the season two weeks ago with a 49-13 victory over Venice. The Ascenders raced to a 21-0 lead in the game's first seven minutes and coasted to an easy win behind five touchdown passes from Michigan-bound quarterback J.J. McCarthy

Edgewater went 13-2 in 2019, narrowly losing in the Class 7A state championship to perennial power St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale). The Tigers are led by Alabama pledge Christian Leary
