Tradition

During the 1930s through the mid 1960s high school football was king in Miami.  The University of Miami had yet to become a national power and the Miami Dolphins didn't  exist.  It wasn't  unusual to see crowds of 30,000 to over 40,000 pack the Orange Bowl for big high schools games.  Schools like Miami High, Edison and Jackson were among the best in the state and in the nation.  But no coach cast a bigger  shadow over the local high school scene than Nick Kotys of Coral Gables  from 1952 through 1971, Kotys' Coral Gables Cavaliers were the gold standard of high school football, winning 6 state titles including 4 mythical national championships.  He was Dade County's "Winningest" coach with a record of 160-33-9.
