Clay County high school football schedules released for 2022 season

Anthony Salazar

The much-anticipated 2022 high school football season for Clay County is just around the corner. The FHSAA has released the schedule for each team in the county for the 2022 season.

Two of the most anticipated matchups in the county come in the first week of the regular season.

Clay High and Fleming Island open the season against each other like every season in recent memory. Clay High traveled to Fleming Island last season and beat them 21-14. However, Fleming Island is a senior-heavy team while Clay is a younger team.

The other anticipated first week matchup is Oakleaf versus Orange Park. This will be athletic director Marcus Miller’s first game as Oakleaf’s interim head football coach. Oakleaf will travel to face an Orange Park squad that has steadily improved under head coach Marcus Wimberley.

A team expected for a breakout season is Middleburg. Middleburg is a team with much potential with their four-star running back Mike Mitchell leading the charge. Middleburg does not have a district matchup until week six when they face Ridgeview. Ridgeview was four points away from going winless last season. Middleburg is expected to handle their business and defeat Ridgeview.

Keystone Heights only has one district matchup that does not count. Keystone will travel to Ridgeview on August 19 to play their only preseason game.

Listed below is the full list of each school’s schedule.
