GAINESVILLE, FL. (10/22/19) – Mandarin High School in Jacksonville will host the 2020 Florida High School Flag Football State Championships as part of a one-year agreement, the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) announced Tuesday. The event will take place on Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th.
