The Marjory Douglas High School football team will get to run plays on the Super Bowl field.
Stoneman Douglas is most associated with the mass shooting that happened in 2018.
The football team lost two of its leaders in the mass shooting but has finally gotten back a track.
MIAMI – Ending their high school football season on an 8-2 record, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Eagles, won the District 13-8A Title. While this accomplishment speaks volumes of this team’s accomplishments, the ending has not been reached for the school and its’ athletes.
Stoneman Douglas, now always reflected back to the Parkland school shooting killing 17 people, will have another opportunity to honor their cohorts.
The team will run plays in Hard Rock Stadium where the Super Bowl will be held on February 2, 2020. In order to help the FOX camera crews set up and adjust their cameras for the big game, the football team will get to feel the full experience of what it is like to play in the Super Bowl. This even includes running through the tunnel onto the field.
The experience will take place just three days before the Super Bowl.
First Title In 18 Years
It has been a struggle for the school’s football program to get back on track since the shooting that occurred February 14, 2018 done by former student Nikolas Cruz, taking two of its leaders in athletic director Chris Hixon and assistant football coach Aaron Feis.
The football team closed its 2018-2019 football season going 5-5, struggling to get back on track.
Nevertheless, the Eagles turned it all around and ended their 2019-2020 football season with the district title.
“The team is excited to be able to step foot on an actual professional football field, it is a dream come true to a lot of them,” said Albert Guzzo, Douglas’ athletic director, in a conversation with BettingSuperBowl. “It shows that hard work pays off because it is the first time that they have won the District Championship in 18 years.”
This is sunshine to the rain for the high school after such hardships and struggle to get things back on track after enduring many losses.
With the Super Bowl being the largest game of the football season, it is only fitting that the Eagles get their place on the field.
