Family, it's a motto Admiral Farragut football has preached all season long.

"These kids are really close," says second-year head coach Rick Kravitz. "They really like playing together and being around each other."

Coach Kravitz has his Blue Jackets one win away from the schools second-ever trip to the 2A State Championship.

The Jackets enter Friday night's home game against defending state champ Champagnat Catholic with a 10-1 record.

"It's a big opportunity for us says," senior quarterback Kashish Cordova.  "They've got everything to lose and we have everything to gain."

Admiral Farragut has been a beast on both sides of the football, with an offense averaging 36 points a game coupled with a defense that has given up just 5 points a game with three shutouts on the season.

"Everybody was doubting us but we're not the underdogs," says Psaveon Reaves, the 2-A player of the year.

The Blue Jackets are one of two Pinellas County teams remaining in the state tournament, along with Clearwater Central Catholic, as both schools are trying to win their first ever state championship and bring the first state title to Pinellas County.

"Growing up here it would be amazing, winning will do a lot for us especially for the school and forty years from know we will look back at this will always be the first team in Pinellas County to win a state championship," Cordova said.

A win Friday and the Blue Jackets are off to Orlando to continue their date with destiny.
