Everett High Football Falls Short of an MIAA Playoff Berth
The Everett High football team had a 7-1 record with seven consecutive victories as the MIAA playoffs were set to begin in November. Many observers felt that first-year head coach Justin Flores had his GBL championship team playing its best football of the season and ready to make a strong run for a Division 1 state title.
But the Crimson Tide would not qualify for the playoffs after the MIAA power rankings placed Everett in the No. 18 position in Division 1. Sixteen teams, including one school [BC High] that Everett had defeated during the season, qualified for the playoffs.
Everett completed its season with a 56-28 victory over St. Mary’s in a Thanksgiving eve game at Everett Memorial Stadium.
