#TheSeason2020-21: Ft Walton Beach

Hey guys!

The work continues. We are bringing back, for its seventh year, #TheSeason. We didn’t do these first year, but have ever since. It’s something nobody else does. We compile all season records and write a wrapup for each team. To get them completed more quickly, we are summarizing these a bit more than in seasons past.

Today, we’re continuing our final round by wrapping up our third of 11 districts, 2A-District 1, with its champion, Ft Walton Beach.
