Jamaica High School Football Champions

This is a list of Jamaica High School Football Champions, the champion high schools are winners of the football competitions that have been held in Jamaica. The first competitive games were played in 1909; the Manning Cup and Walker Cup are contested among schools in the Corporate Area while the DaCosta and Ben Francis Cups are contested by schools from the Rural Area. The Olivier Shield and Super Cup are contested by both Corporate and Rural Area schools with the Olivier Shield contested, in a home-and-away two-leg format, by the winners of the Manning & DaCosta Cups that season and is the last cup to be decided each season with the possibility of the title being shared if the scores were tied after two games; this format was changed by ISSA to a one-leg, play-to-finish format following the 2013 season which meant the title could no longer be shared. The Super Cup is contested by the top eight schools each from the Corporate and Rural Area, that season, in a one-leg knockout format with every first knockout round contested by a Rural Area versus Corporate Area school based on their rankings.

In 2018, the Flow Super Cup was renamed the ISSA Champions Cup after the initial sponsorship agreement ended with Flow. Jamaica College has won the Manning Cup more than any other team; the following table shows the lists of winners in the contested finals for the various competitions held.

He was a member of several Australian groups from the 1960s to 1990s including Tamam Shud, Kahvas Jute and Rose Tattoo, he had a solo music career and released the albums, Band on the Run, Rough Trade, Blue Sierra and Blues Remedy. In April 2008 he issued a retrospective compilation covering both his group and solo work, Reckless Love: the Tim Gaze Anthology. Tim Gaze, at the age of 14, was a member of Stonehenge from 1968 replacing Ray Ferguson on guitar and vocals, alongside Nigel Macara on drums, Ross Ward on guitar and vocals, Warren Ward on bass guitar. Gaze joined his first major band, Tamam Shud, in late 1969 in Sydney, replacing founding member Zac Zytnic, on lead guitar and vocals. Other members were Peter Barron on bass guitar, Lindsay Bjerre on vocals and guitar, Dannie Davidson on drums. Gaze played with the progressive rock group for about six months but quit around June 1970, just after recording their second album and the Real People, released in October.

Gaze and Davidson formed another progressive rock band, Kahvas Jute, in mid-1970 with Bob Daisley on bass guitar, Dennis Wilson on lead guitar and vocals. Gaze contributed his first compositions to Wide Open. Soon after its recording Gaze rejoined Tamam Shud, remaining with them until the band broke up in August 1972. In the line up was former Stonehenge bandmate, Macara on drums. During this period Tamam Shud provided three tracks for the soundtrack of the Australian surfing film, Morning of the Earth, which became the first Australian film soundtrack to earn a gold record award. In late 1972, after Tamam Shud disbanded and Macara formed Miss Universe with George Limbidis on bass guitar and Phillip Pritchard on guitar. Early in the following year they rehearsed with Ross Hannaford and Ross Wilson but after about a month Gaze left and Macara followed. Gaze and Macara were founding members of Ariel, another progressive rock group, which formed in 1973, alongside John Mills on keyboards, Bill Putt on bass guitar, Mike Rudd on guitar and vocals.

Aside from guitar and vocals, Gaze co-wrote tracks for the group's debut album, A Strange Fantastic Dream, including their first single, "Jamaican Farewell". He remained with the group until April 1974 and joined the Stevie Wright Band to tour Australia until the end of that year.

In the following year he joined Headland alongside Neville Barker, Peter Bolton, Mick Norris, Bruce Parkinson and Judy Parkinson. In that year he founded Tim Gaze Rock Ensemble with Peter Blyton on bass guitar, Bolton on keyboards and Robbie France-Shaw on drums. Dayride followed in 1977, which included Gaze and Bolton. Tim Gaze Band followed soon after and, in 1979, they supplied tracks for the surfing film, Band on the Run; the soundtrack album was re-released in a 2× CD format in 2004. In 1985 Gaze, on slide guitar, became a member of hard rockers, Rose Tattoo, alongside Angry Anderson on lead vocals, Andy Cichon on bass guitar and piano, Scott Johnston on drums and John Meyer on lead guitar.

The line-up released a cover version of Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild". Meyer left and the group recorded an album, Beats from a Single Drum, as a four-piece for Mushroom Records; the band separated by the end of 1987, Anderson re-released Beats from a Single Drum as his solo album. It provided Anderson's debut single, "Suddenly", which peaked at No. 2 on the Kent Music Report Singles Chart. Gaze established his own recording studio and performed in several different bands from the late 1980s to the early 1990s, he was a member of Pete Wells Band in 1991 with Wells on slide guitar and lead vocals.

In March 1993 Tamam Shud reformed with the line-up of Gaze, Barron and Macara, they issued a single, "Stay", followed with an album, The Permanent Culture.

The group disbanded again. Gaze returned to session work. In 1996 he recorded his solo album, Blue Sierra, with studio musicians Pamela Jo Drysdale on accordion, Rob Grosser on drums, Damien Kennedy on bass guitar and Glen Muirhead on piano and keyboards. According to Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, it is "an exceptional release; the material ranged from the tough blues rocker'Easy Mama' and the gypsy-tinged'Let It Rain', to the gorgeous acoustic ballad'Say Goodbye'. Prominent throughout was Gaze’s always-tasteful guitar playing." To support the release Gaze formed Blue Sierra with Kennedy. Gaze and Grosser founded Tim Gaze and the Blues Doctors with Daniel Barnett on brass, Jim Conway on harmonica, Ralph Franke on brass, Graeme Gibb on bass guitar and Mike Gubb on piano and organ, they issued an album, Blues Remedy, on F
