    Man this is Florida!!!! the rest of the country’s schedules are out, in Florida you’ll have to show up to the stadium on Friday and hope your team has a home game. You won’t find out who anyone is playing unless you show up in mid August to find out

    I proudly called this years ago on the national board that once the new rule is implemented basically letting public schools play by the rules as the privates Lakeland will be back to beating STAs ass. You cant call yourself a true competitive organization and have teams not playing by the same rules. When STA would have double digit transfers from Miami to West Palm no one batted an eye. But when some local Polk County stud wanted to play for the best coach in state history everyone got up in arms. Now every team can acquire talent how they see fit, and everyone can play under the same rules.

    Xavier Lee was a monster in high school. He could throw the football 80 Yards. His primary target was Eric Weems, a NFL player up until 2018. But his high school success was also greatly enhanced by the system he played under. Coach Marc Beach (Spruce Creek grad) brought the Spread Offense to Daytona Beach in the late 1990's. He had played DB at Valdosta State and stayed on as a grad assistant under offensive wiz, Head Coach Hal Mumme. Greats Lavell Edwards, and Rich Rodriquez are generally credited as the architects of this passing system. With four spread wideouts, five counting the RB, opposing DB's were lost as he checked down looking 1,2,3,4,5 on who was open. It wasn't until years later that the defenses caught up. Pressure in the QB's face doesn't give him time to check down past the 1st or 2nd option. Forget about the 3,4,5, QB is on his a$$. At the time if Mainland had that system, with it's athletes, they'd have won several more championships. Beach has been the OC at Tift County(Ga) for several years now ($$$). I played ball with Xavier's dad Willie "Foot's" Lee at Bethune-Cookman. Tried to post a photo of us together, but my computer skills are bad!!!

    A true dark horse I see in South Florida is Hialeah High. They are a perennial 4-6 win team that went 9-1 last season. They lost in the first round of the playoffs to South Dade, but they were a young team led by freshmen and sophomores. They just won the 7 on 7 tournament at UM last week and they have some promising players.

    Parrish Community High School will begin play in 2019 - the school will begin with a Jr. Varsity schedule (despite what the photo shows) as the school will have only or at least the bulk of 9th and 10th graders. They will primarily be taking students from Palmetto High School as they are the only other HS north of the river in Manatee County. Originally named North River HS .

    Chaminade-Madonna will win this game. The only individuals who don't know that Vero is the underdog here is Vero. It'll be good, but Chaminade-Madonna isn't Viera. Coach Jones, Coach Tate and staff will have the Lions ready for this one.

    I think in some cases that peer pressure/influence is as big, if not greater a factor than "recruiting." ...ie "Hey, let's all go to _____ next year and create a state championship team." With all of the camps, 7-on-7 and social media today, there is a level of communication amongst the kids today that we have never seen before. I am cautious not to underestimate the impact this could be having.

    Before the 1960’s teams were crowned mythical state champions. There was publications in the state who unofficially crowned them but since there was no playoff, it was all moot. Teams would recognize based on points systems who the champion was for the entire state. Especially at the a time when there wasn’t that many teams. So usually the undefeated team took the “crown” In 1925 Pinellas County’s greatest team ever was able to make the claim as “State Champion”. They beat every single power in the state at the time enroute to an undefeated season capped off by beating the Georgia State Champ in a postseason bowl game. They played 10 games and only allowed 3 points total. 9 shutouts. Gotta be close to a record. Here was the results to Pinellas County’s One and only Football State Champion 1925 (10-0) Arcadia 13-0 Sarasota 60-0 West Palm Beach 42-0 Key West 95-0 Hillsborough 30-3 Lake City 55-0 Miami High 21-0 Duval High 3-0 Ft Myers 26-0 Atlanta Tech,GA 13-0

    Brothers Andre and Reche Caldwell. Both played at Jefferson High School in Tampa and both went on the play college football at UF. Obviously, Andre played with Denver (along with a couple other NFL teams) and Reche played for the Patriots (along with a couple of other NFL teams).

    He stepped down from head coach and went on to coach the O-Line. Coach Pat Lusk kept the tradition going but the Rock wasn't ready for a complete change when it came to working with their talent. Still ran the same plays. Even when I played there from 04-08 when Cocoa won their first championship.

    I was at the semifinal. It was a cold evening with a wet, soggy field as rain had fallen before kickoff. The game was close through the end of the first half. Then Lincoln committed a series of errors in the second half, some, no doubt, induced by the conditions. Palm Bay took full advantage and pulled away for the easy win. Early in the season, it was either the kickoff classic or game one of the regular season, Edgewater had won a double overtime victory over Palm Bay at Edgewater. I was at that game too which was a great contest between two very good teams. Edgewater was to lose the 6A title game 14-19 on a hail Mary from the Norland QB with seconds left on the clock. That, too, was a great game and marked the coldest night I have ever been at a game in Florida as it was in the 30s up in Tally. On the field for Norland was Duane Bowe while Edgewater had Mike Walker. Both would go on to good NFL careers with Walker's ending early due to injury.

    1964: Larry Smith, Robinson (RB) - My Dad used to tell me stories about Larry Smith just completely running over Manatee's Bob Pettee ( who would go on to play for Bear Bryant at Alabama). Manatee belonged to the old Western Conference back then and would play Robinson yearly along with many other Hillsborough teams Larry went on to play professionally for the Rams after completing his college career at Florida. I supposedly saw him play but was much too young to remember. 1967: John Reaves, Robinson (QB) Those Robinson teams were real powerhouse teams, playing Coral Gables for the state title in 67 I believe. Also played at Florida and while he played 10+ years as a pro, he never saw the same kind of success he experienced in HS or in college 1976: Alan Gray, Plant (QB) Plant during the 70's and 80's was coached by Rolland Acosta and his teams were the perennial powerhouse in the Tampa bay area. I saw Plant for the 1st time in my life against Manatee in the 1st round of the 1973 playoffs which Plant won 13-6.......(Manatee's 1st time to make the playoffs) at the original Tampa Stadium. Gray went on to Play also for Bear Bryant at Alabama. 1983: Joey Nicoletto, Chamberlain (LB) Saw him play during the 1st round of the 1983 playoffs against Manatee as well. Manatee would win I want to say 28-13 and go on to win its 1st state title. Chamberlain was coached by Billy Turner and had a number of tuff teams during the 80's that Manatee would see in the playoffs

    Seriously though you’d love for everyone to succeed at a higher level in sports, but it’s unrealistic. This is a good example for kids to not just succeed on the field but in the class to so they can have a career outside of football to fall back on, no matter how good they are.

    My Money's Worth

    After last night's big disappointment, I got to see 4.5 quarters of good, competitive football. The Jamboree was played among Boone (the host), Bishop Moore and Wekiva. In the first half I saw, Bishop Moore, which started slowly, beat Boone 14-0. The score was about right. Boone had the better of the first 8 minutes of the first quarter. After that Bishop Moore had the better of play. Their second touchdown was set up by a bobbled one handed grab by their tight end, number 14, who after securing the ball took it down to the Boone five. No 14, 1 and 11 for Bishop Moore are really good football players. I think number 1 will play college ball at a big time program. The second game ended when Wekiva's QB over threw the end zone on fourth and goal from the Bishop Moore 12. Two plays earlier he had been sacked for a loss and on the next to last play, the BM corner made a big play to tip the ball out of the hands of the Wekiva receiver. In the only score of this game, BM's touchdown came on a long, grinding 85 yard drive in the second quarter. Wekiva is a good team and its offense has a shot at being better than last year's offense. However, the defense is young and way behind last year's defense at this stage. From what I saw of Edgewater in video against Osceola, and my knowledge of who they return, at this stage I am going with Edgewater to be the best 7A team in the Orlando area. In the final half of football, Boone, after picking up a nice fist down to get up to midfield, gave up a pick six and on the next Wekiva drive, the QB Preston, found a wide open receiver for a long touchdown pass. I figured at that stage that Boone was not coming back, so I left before the end of the quarter. Thoughts on the three teams. Bishop Moore is very solid. They and Jones should be in a battle royal for 5A, District 7. At this stage I am agnostic as to which one wins the district, as Jones literally had no competition last evening while BM was in four hard fought quarters. So, it is difficult for me to assess just how good Jones is at this stage. Wekiva is still a strong, likely playoff team. But the defense is not as good as it was the prior two seasons and without transfers in, I don't think it will improve enough this year to get to that level. Their QB Preston continues to develop nicely and he, too, should play college ball at a solid program, though I am not sure what his position will be. Boone is not a bad team. They used two QB running back combinations and to be honest, I preferred the fist featuring numbers 18 and 27. However, they were removed late in the first quarter against BM and had not returned when I left midway though the first quarter against Wekiva. I see BM having a shot at going deep in 5A if they can get past Jones which is a big hurdle. Wekiva should make the playoffs and it will come down to draw as to how far they progress. Regarding Boone, I think they will be better than last year. At this stage, I am not sure about their playoff chances.
