Unpredictable outcomes of a dramatic game

The match depicted Seminole driving deep into Tigers territory, threatening to overturn the game’s momentum. Surprisingly, when defensive back C.J. Hester intercepted his first of two passes in the end zone, his act reclaimed possession for Cocoa. The team then rallied behind their interim coach, and on the first play of the fourth quarter, quarterback Brady Hart connected with Jayvan Boggs for a 16-yard touchdown. It immediately extended Cocoa’s lead on the ground. 

Boggs, with seven catches for 170 yards, including a 42-yard touchdown in the first quarter, also played a pivotal role in the team’s triumph. Narrating details from the thrilling face-off, he mentioned the hurdles his team faced, as the players were urged to flip that switch for their beloved coach. “It was hard to see him go because we want our head coach to get the ‘W’ with us,” Boggs remarked after the game. He even explained how Schneider’s absence made the team turn it up another notch.

Notably, running backs Malachi Toney and Latrison Lane secured Cocoa’s 28-3 win over Seminole, sealing the victory with fourth-quarter touchdown runs. It marked the first time this season that Seminole’s offense was kept out of the end zone. With Cocoa High’s football team preparing to face 7-0 Titusville, the bigger question becomes the coach’s career. Although the team is currently ranked No. 10 in Class 2S, Ryan Schneider’s presence on the road next week still remains a mystery.
