News and notes: State condenses football finals schedule; Doumbia commits to South Carolina; Shakey hosting a basketball clinic

            The Florida High School Athletic Association announced Thursday it is condensing the schedule for the state football finals to be played all in one weekend this December.

            The eight state championship games will be played at Camping World Stadium (formerly the Citrus Bowl) from Dec. 8-10. The FHSAA stated it would release the exact times and dates for each game next month, but the Class 4A-1A games would now be played over the first two days along with the Class 8A-5A games.

            The move comes in light of the venue being selected to host the ACC championship game on Dec. 3. The change in format was originally scheduled to begin next season as the FHSAA extended its deal with Orlando to host the event through the 2018 season.

DOUMBIA COMMITS

           Miami Country Day 6-8 basketball forward Ibrahim Doumbia committed to the University of South Carolina on Thursday.

            Doumbia, a native of Mali, averaged 19 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks as a junior leading the Spartans to a district championship and a berth in the Class 3A regional semifinals.

            Doumbia chose the Gamecocks, coached by former Miami High coach Frank Martin, over several programs including Tennessee and Baylor.

COACHING CLINIC

            Veteran basketball coach Shakey Rodriguez is hosting a basketball coaching clinic Saturday and Sunday at Mater Academy School (7901 NW 103 St.).

            The clinic will run each day from 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and will feature numerous Division-I college coaches as guest speakers including University of Miami men’s coach Jim Larranaga, UM women’s coach Katie Meier as well South Carolina men’s coach Frank Martin, University of Florida men’s and women’s coaches Michael White and Amanda Butler, Barry University coach Butch Estes and UCF men’s coach Johnny Dawkins.

            For more info contact Rodriguez at 305-310-4582 or at shakeyrp40@gmail.com.
