It was a night to remember for the entire Coral Springs High School community, with Head Coach Fred Flowers picking up his first career win in the team’s home opener Friday night. 

The Colts defeated Hollywood Hills High School 10-6 on Senior Night, with 21 student-athletes being recognized at halftime. Coach Flowers was not only happy to get a win to honor these players but pick up his first victory with his team.

“I said jokingly, but it is very fitting to say, ‘I got the monkey off of my back,’ said Coach Flowers. “It is the first of many, and I can tell we’re turning the curve to becoming winners.”

Offensively, Michael Norville kicked a 31-yard field goal and freshman running back Preston Wiggins ran the ball 11 times for 92 yards and also scored a touchdown. Defensively, CSHS forced four turnovers and had an interception. The “Black Hole,” as Coach Flowers calls his defense, was led by Joaquin Smith. He had nine tackles and forced a fumble. Tyrese Gordon had two sacks and an interception, while Gabriel Cash recorded the interception. 

The Colts moved to 1-1 this season after falling to Piper High School 27-6 in their opening game. Next, CSHS will host Blanche Ely High School in their next game on Friday, September 16, at 7 p.m. The Tigers opened their season up with a victory in their first game against Cypress Bay after winning only once in ten tries last season.

It will also be alumni night, as all former students and faculty will be able to get a tour of the school and will be recognized at halftime.
