Football: Plant 51, Bloomingdale 20

TAMPA — Nobody would have guessed eight years ago when coach Robert Weiner took the Plant job that Friday night would be his 100th win for the program. But even then, Weiner had an idea Plant could make waves.

"I remember sitting in our auditorium with our staff (on) Day One saying we could have the pieces in place to win a state championship," he said. "But this run has exceeded anybody's expectations, including mine."

Forty-nine of those wins, three trips to state and two state titles have come with the current group of seniors who got Weiner's 100th win, soundly defeating Bloomingdale 51-20 at home. In Plant's 28-point second quarter, Aaron Banks threw TD passes of 49 and 73 yards and ran for a 36-yard score.
