JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Ed White Commanders left the Westside of Jacksonville for Lakeland, Fla. Thursday afternoon after school.

This is a historic trip because it is the Commanders first appearance in the class 6A Final Four. Ed White Head Coach Ben Jones told First Coast Sports Anchor Chris Porter that his team is loose and will relish the moment.

The Commanders will face the defending class 6A state champions Miami Norland Friday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.
