West Boca Football Releases 2024 Schedule

West Boca High School has released their varsity football schedule for the 2024 season.

West Boca has arguably the hardest schedule in Palm Beach County. No worries, though, head coach Dylan Potts and the Bulls are up to the task.

Coming off a 9-3 season in which the Bulls won their first playoff game in 16 years, West Boca has high expectations, hence they scheduled some of the best teams in the state of Florida.

The Bulls are set to face a lot of teams for the first time in school history. Meanwhile, West Boca waves goodbye to the regular Boca Raton opponents like Olympic Heights and Spanish River.

Kickoff Classic – Jupiter @ West Boca – August 15th

For the first time ever, West Boca will face Jupiter High School to kick off the high school football season in what is known as the kickoff classic. Kickoff classic games do not count towards regular season records, serving as a preseason or exhibition game. Jupiter finished 9-2 last season, losing to Boca High in the first round of the playoffs.

Benjamin @ West Boca – August 22

For the first time ever, West Boca will take on Benjamin. The Buccaneers are coming off an 8-3 season in which they lost to a talented Cardinal Newman team in the first round of the playoffs.

Benjamin was a force to be reckoned with last year, led by running back Chauncey Bowens, who is now playing college football at Georgia. Bowens is not the only Buccaneer who graduated last year and is off to play football at the next level. Three-star safety Jacob Cosby-Mosley, who was a finalist for the Lou Groza Palm Beach County Player of the Year, is at Wake Forest. In addition, four-star edge Amaree Williams, who was supposed to be part of the class of 2025, reclassified to the class of 2024 and signed with FSU.

Benjamin returns running back Phoenix Donghia, a strong running back who has learned a lot behind Bowens. Donghia is part of the class of 2026 and has offers from Appalachian State and Charlotte.

West Boca @ Palm Beach Central – August 29

West Boca’s first road game of the season is against Palm Beach Central, a team that went 10-3 last year. Palm Beach Central quarterback Caleb Butler, who has an offer from Western Kentucky, transferred to Dwyer this spring. Fortunately for the Broncos, they are replacing Butler with Chance Routson, who transferred from Boca High. Routson will be throwing the ball to some pretty darn good weapons, including four-star wide receiver Waden Charles, who is committed to Miami, and three-star wide receiver Kamare Williams, who has offers from LSU, Florida, FSU, Miami, and Michigan, among others. On the defensive end, Palm Beach Central has defensive back Tony Williams, who has offers from FSU, Pitt, UCF, and West Virginia, among others. Of note, Palm Beach Central cornerback Damon Allen is now at West Boca after transferring over the spring. Allen has offers from FAU and West Virginial.

Seminole Ridge @ West Boca – September 13 (District Game)

After a bye week, West Boca is set to host their first district game of the season with a matchup against Seminole Ridge. The Bulls are 2-0 all-time against the Hawks with their last matchup being in 2006. Seminole Ridge was 7-3 last year, failing to make the playoffs.

Treasure Coast @ West Boca – September 20

For the first time in school history, West Boca will face Treasure Coast. After making it all the way to the regional finals last season and notching a 9-3 record, the Titans were ranked the 30th best team in the state of Florida. Treasure Coast had a large graduating class last season, so it will be interesting to see what replacements are made. Defensive lineman Jahari Grant (USF), safety Shamir Sterlin (FIU), and offensive lineman Knajee Saffold (FIU) are all off to play college football after playing for the Titans last season.

West Boca @ Dwyer – September 27 (District Game)

West Boca has only beaten Dwyer once – and they have played each other 15 times in school history. That says a lot about the history of the Bulls. But under the leadership of Coach Potts, the Bulls are in a good position to beat Dwyer in a district matchup on the road. This Dwyer program is no longer a powerhouse like it was just a few years ago. The Panthers finished 4-6 last year.

West Boca @ Western – October 4

For the first time in school history, West Boca will face the Western Wildcats in Davie. The Wildcats were a force to be reckoned with last year, finishing with a record of 9-4 and a ranking of 26th in the entire state of Florida.

Just like Treasure Coast, Western had a large graduating class last season. Western’s Davi Belfort was one of the best quarterbacks in the entire state, but he is now off to play college football for Virginia Tech. Running back Tovani Mizell is also off to play at the power five level as he is at Kentucky. Defensive back Jaylon Edmond also graduated and is set to play at Washington State.

Three-star wide receiver Koby Howard, who has offers from Georgia, Florida, FSU, and Miami, among others, transferred this spring from Western to Chaminade-Madonna, arguably the best team in the state of Florida aside from IMG Academy. We shall see what replacements Coach Ratkevich makes.

Royal Palm Beach @ West Boca – October 10 (District Game)

Royal Palm Beach travels to West Boca on October 10th in a district matchup. The Bulls beat Royal Palm Beach in the kickoff classic last season 37-0. The Wildcats finished 3-7 last year. West Boca is 3-8 all-time against the Wildcats.

West Boca @ Bishop Verot – October 18

It will be a far drive to Fort Myers but it will surely be worth it. The Bulls are set to take on Bishop Verot for the first time in school history. The Vikings went 11-2 last year, making it all the way to the regional finals. Talk about starpower – Bishop Verot’s quarterback, Carter Smith, is committed to Michigan.

West Boca @ Palm Beach Gardens – October 25 (District Game)

West Boca travels to Palm Beach Gardens at the end of October to take on the Gators. The Gators finished 6-5 last season. West Boca is 2-4 all-time against Palm Beach Gardens.

Atlantic @ West Boca – November 1

What better way to wrap up the regular season than with a matchup against Atlantic. Do you remember the last time West Boca faced Atlantic? The West Boca Miracle and Hail Mallory may ring a bell.

This matchup is arguably the biggest game of the year in Palm Beach County, and since it is the final game of the season, playoff implications will surely be on the line. West Boca and Atlantic are arguably the two best teams in the county.

The Eagles bolstered up their roster big time this spring. American Heritage four-star running back Deandre Desinor, who has offers from Florida, FSU, and Miami, among others, transferred to Atlantic. The showdown between Desinor and West Boca running back Javian Mallory will be must-watch TV. Saint Andrew’s wide receiver Teddy Hoffman, who has offers from Nebraska, Appalachian State, and Akron, among others, also transferred to Atlantic.

From a packed student section in the stands to a ton of scouts on the sideline, expect it all on November 1st. Don’t be surprised if a rivalry is created between these two teams. And prepare for a miracle, just like we saw in the first round of the FHSAA Playoffs last season.
