48 days until Florida high school football season: One number for each day as we count down to kickoff 2023

SBLive Florida gives you one significant number per day as we mark the days until high school football returns.

The Florida high school football season is scheduled to begin Thursday, Aug. 24 — 48 days from today. As we count down the days until kickoff, SBLive Florida will give you one significant number per day.


Choctawhatchee had themselves a solid season in 2022 behind a potent offense, powered by running back Cole Tabb, quarterbacks Jesse Winslette and wide receiver Jayce Brown. 

The latter of the three graduated this past spring and signed with Kansas State to play his college football at this fall. Brown ended up hauling in 48 passes last season for 925 yards and 12 touchdowns. 

Brown didn’t just play on the gridiron, however, as the multi-sport athlete also ran track and played basketball for the Indians. On defense, Brown was pretty good as well and picked off 10 passes and made 30 tackles for the Class 3S region finalist.
