FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Football players from St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Florida’s reigning Class 7A football champions, are reliving the amazing moment the team won the national title at a ring ceremony Friday.

The team also beat a school from Hawaii in the inaugural Champions Bowl Series to be named National Champs. Their overall record: 15 – 0.

However, due to social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic, the players received their championship rings at the school in a drive through ceremony in the gym parking lot.

One of those players who received a ring Friday included linebacker Derek Wingo, who was one of the four finalists for the CBS4 Nat Moore Trophy last season.

Defense end Allan Baugh, who is headed to the University of Colorado, posted this video on Twitter after receiving his ring.

The St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders have won a total of 11 state championships.

Congratulations Raiders!
