    RIP STEVEOPT

    A close friend of mine and big a supporter of HS football passed away a few weeks.Steve and I spent countless hours attending and critiquing football at all levels over the last 16 years. The conversation would usually carry over to the bar or restaurant afterwards. Steve loved supporting local sports, especially Robinson High football, baseball, etc. He also was somewhat of a historian, with a memory like an elephant. Talking to Steve would sometimes transport you right back to childhood when we were discussing local sports legends and the places we used to haunt as kids. He remembered everyt

  7. A native of Queens, N.Y.; coached at Syracuse and in Minnesota. I haven't done a ton of research, but I don't see any Texas connection at all. Here's one thing I did find interesting. Here's Acosta's quote from a little over a year ago when he got the head job at IMG: " And I see this, to be honest, as my retirement job. It might be 10 years earlier than I wanted this, but I’m 45 years old, and you spend the next 20 years down here ... this place is just going to keep on growing. We’re going to talk about a junior elite team. You don’t know where this can go. I see this as a final d

  9. We just got in a Power 5 WR 5 foot 120 lbs and runs a 5.4 40. He is power 5 if he grows a foot adds 60 lbs and drops his 40 time by a second. Other than that he's not bad.

  17. Perhaps this can be a single thread for us to keep track of transfers. The quality of recruiting done by a H.S. staff and the team's players tends to make all the difference in what kind of team is put on the field. In Polk County, which I follow closest, it appears there is more talent dispersion than in the recent past. Lake Gibson is at least as loaded as Lakeland, if not more. Bartow has players. Kathleen figures to have a few. And the small private schools in Lakeland-most obviously Victory Christian, whose staff is dominated by Dreadnaught legends- has a lot of good players. Lake Wa

    Sorry to hear of your friend's passing. May he rest in peace but never be forgotten by those who knew him and benefitted from the experience. It seems he was a true fan and supporter of his community.

  21. There were some D1/Power 5 kids at Pahokee/Glades Central this year, but they didn't come into the season with the recruiting hype, and with Covid killing the summer camp curcuit they didn't the exposure needed. Also, with the NCAA granting an extra year of eligibility, some of the kids got squeezed out. These next 2 years, both schools should send multiple kids D1, Pahokee has a strong JR class and GC has some good OL.

  22. Lot to take in here, @Perspective, and it certainly is interesting to see how things played out geographically. All Josh, no helpers on this project! Though he doesn't take help on this project, I am aware of the process so I can speak on that some. It all starts with the solicitation of nominees from coaches around the state. I couldn't tell you how many coaches nominate their dudes (and some nominate dudes from other teams) but I know it's alot. (Granted, if only 100 teams nominated players that only be 25% of the teams.) All those nominees, with stats, go to a spreadsh

  23. A big part of the problem is the smaller population at the "Muck Schools". A lot of the Palm Beach County Power 5 talent came for GCHS and Pahokee.

    As long as OJ is there and he can keep his staff together? They’ll keep winning. In some ways, city schools have a huge advantage (more people = more possible athletes) but also a huge disadvantage. I’m sure they have nowhere near the stability of a Columbia nor do they have the community support or funding. In fact, I’d consider Columbia a better job than Lee

  25. Valdosta just lost their coach, star QB and stud WR. And that’s minimum. It could be a mass exodus soon. Hope Mad Co has an airtight contract or Dosta might try and drop them for Hamilton County. Lol

  30. It will be very interesting to see how zones in Lakeland are re-adjusted to alleviate overcrowding at GJ or if capacity is added. Least likely will be renewed plans for another high school in SW Lakeland. It's weird to hear that LG has more talent than Kathleen. I'd never thought I would hear that statement based solely off the draw pools in the core of the city. What's really starting to sink in more so now than in years past most is the more dominant programs are playing in 1 of 2 classes which would make it really difficult to send multiple teams to state championship without beating the

  33. It's not shade, It's reality I'm tired of listening to their fans spreading lies constantly and claiming they all home grown talent and bash teams like TCA when TCA probably gets as many transfers in an entire off-season that Lee got in a single day and those were just the ones reported A lot of the Duval media cover up how many transfers these publics get each off-season so they can act like the teams are doing it with home grown talent as a way to justify their publics never being good enough to consistently compete at the state level

Miami central reached out to us because of the type of program Dillard has become, last I checked the rockets don’t reach out to an opponent that’s gonna be a cake walk, they’re always looking for a tough challenge week in & out. & regardless of any previous matchups we are in 2021, we back down from NO ONE, win or lose, these are the EXACT type of games Dillard need to play. #Letsssgoooo

As We All Know The New Classifications Are Out & Quite A Few Teams Found out their Classification & Districts Have Changed. Notable Changes: MIAMI CENTRAL TO 5A DILLARD to 7A with st Thomas in the same district as STA, Miami northwestern back to 6A.

  48. You know something Jesse? I agree. But this thread had nothing to do with Madison County, Venice, or St. Thomas Aquinas. It was @THIS_IS_DILLARD ‘s first time posting on this board in nearly a year, and it was a post about him being excited about his teams upcoming realignment for the 2021 season. You called them a bunch of black hole boys (which is a derogatory racial slur, by the way), and talked Ill about the team that he cares about so much. You didn’t even express sorrow for the fact that his friend, Eddie Frazier, passed away at such a young age, and called Dillard garbage. No kind words
