A few Miami-Dade and Broward schools earned cash and plaques for good sportsmanship, as the 2007-08 FHSAA/Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards were announced by the FHSAA (Section winners get $500, overall winners for each class get $2,500). The top local schools:
- 6A: Cooper City (Section 4 winner)
- 5A: Booker T. Washington (Section 4 winner, overall winner)
- 3A: University (Seciton 4 winner)
- 2A: Westminster Christian (Section 4 winner)
Schools are nominated by FHSAA representatives, with winners chosen by an anonymous committee based on, according to the FHSAA: "programs and activities implemented within the school and community to promote sportsmanship; number and type of unsportsmanlike ejections; number and type of exceptional sportsmanship reports; and source of the nomination."
