Defense leads STA to second straight Class 7A Championship



Several seniors and St. Thomas Aquinas coach Roger Harriott celebrate after Raiders 2015 7A State Championship win

For the second consectutive season, Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas used a strong defensive effort to repeat as Class 7A State Champions! The Raiders harassed Viera quarterback Hayden Kingston all evening long, recording five sacks and three interceptions en route to a 45-10 victory. They also held the Hawks to 46 yards rushing on 32 carries, an average of 1.4 yards per rush! Viera didn't get into the end zone until the game's final play and STA neutralized senior wide receiver Tre Nixon, holding him to just 5 catches for 19 yards, a paltry 3.8 yards per reception.

Senior running back Jaxson Kincaide had a game high 119 yards rushing with two touchdowns and James Charles, also a senior, rushed for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Junior quarterback Jake Allen completed 11 of 14 passes for 152 yards, including a 30 yard touchdown pass to senior Sam Bruce(5 catches 61 yards). Trevon Grimes, 6-4 junior, 3 catches for 70 yards. Big 6-3 220 pound Michael Irvin, the son of the NFL Hall of Famer with the same name added 3 catches for 33 yards.

Viera had their seven game win streak snapped to end the year 10-5. It was the schools first appearance in a state championship game in their ten year existence. Jay Boyd played a good game in defeat, he finished with 96 all-purpose yards, 9 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery and an interception. Alex Cabrera added 6 catches for 59 yards, and Malek Folston scored the Hawks' only touchdown and also has an interception.
