State Cup Finals
Teams from around the state of Florida traveled to the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex in Auburndale for a chance to progress to the 2015 Region III Championships in North Little Rock, Arkansas. After a special presentation for Armed Forces Day, teams took to the field in a semifinal match that would last all Saturday. After the semifinals, championship games were held on Sunday.

Social Media Habits for Young Players
The information age has given high school students the ability to form opinions about colleges before ever stepping on a campus for a visit. But they’re not the only ones using the Internet to gather useful information. College coaches now have a much quicker and convenient way to form a first impression of a potential recruit’s character — through social media. For some young players, that may not be a good thing.
