Tampa Jefferson Football 2021

Posted On: 03/31/21 7:31 AM

If that 18-14 playoff loss to Palm Bay Bayside doesn’t serve as motivation for Tampa Jefferson players, coaches and fans, maybe nothing will.

That loss not only stopped a six-game winning streak for head coach Joe Midulla and his Dragons, but it was a wake-up call for this very talented team.

That four-point setback to Bayside in the playoffs and four-point loss to Tampa Hillsborough ruined would could have been a banner season for this program.

Even those wins against Tampa Middleton (6-0), Riverview Spoto (53-0), Tampa King (40-30), Brandon (57-0), Gibsonton East Bay (25-19 – 2OT), Tampa Blake (49-15) and Tampa Alonso (34-31) were great and very important, but this program wants more – and they have the talent to do it.

The senior class will be stacked with talent in 2021 – with several players returning to help with experience and leadership.

Prospects such as Eric Felder (DB/WR, 5-11, 165 – 3.0 GPA), Gabriel Laughlin (DB/WR, 5-10, 165 – 3.0 GPA), Tarus Mitchell (OL/DL, 6-2, 255), Mikol Mackey (RB/LS, 6-0, 185 – 3.0 GPA), Noah Miles (OL/DL/LS, 6-4, 285 – 3.0 GPA), Jori Phanord (OL/DL, 6-2. 250 – 3.18 GPA), Marcus Plair (OL/DL, 6-0, 225 – 2.6 GPA)
