    Who Is This Central FL HS Coach?

    If this coach is indeed Hurlie Brown, the school that he coaches at is Merritt Island. Hurlie Brown also played in the CFL.

    Glades Central Let Go Of Hester

    I’m surprised he lasted this long. It’s state or bust at Glades Central (unrealistic expectations), and the Muck Bowl (Pahokee) loss didn’t help. This kinda mirrors FSU and Taggert. FSU was 6-6 in Jimbo’s last season and had to make up a D2 game to be bowl eligible. Fans think we’re the 90s Noles (which we aren’t) and the Miami loss was unacceptable.

    By the way, every school in 8A just decided to vote against this idea once they saw that STA, Lakeland and Armwood would all be moving up.

    Good points made on Mandarin above. Last year looks almost identical to this year. Seminole can score quickly. Guessing a lot of college recruiters will be in attendance to see two of the best QB's in the country duel it out.

    I understand what you're thinking/saying, but be careful about counting your turkeys before they hatch. Plenty of football to be played before the Friday after Thanksgiving.

    Mandarin final 3 games of regular season last year. 34-33 win over spruce. 39-34 win over flagler palmcoast. Loss. 27-20 to fletcher. Would u say that is about the same thing as this year? Do u not think we hit our stride last year? Can't be concerned with blowouts. Have to be concerned with learning how to win when things are not going perfect imo. Especially when u have an inexperienced team.

    Let's be honest, as much as I talk about promotion/relegation, it is a pipe dream, because admins/ADs/coaches are scared. Look at the push back from non-football sports for the radical realignment the FHSAA wanted to do. The reality is that if promotion/relegation is going to happen, it will happen slowly. Having said that, the FHSAA can do some simple things to fix things. 1) Go back to 4 teams for 1A-4A who make the playoffs, instead of 6. or 2) Shrink 2A-4A down by 1 classification, with the goal of 60 teams (15 teams per region) if they are going to keep 6 teams. Ideally: 1A: Keep the Same 2A: Expand to 60 teams (~15 teams per region) 3A: Expand to 60 teams (~15 teams per region) 4A-7A: Equally Split (~80 teams per) The reality is that we should shrink by one more class to get closer to 96 teams per class and 16 districts, but shrinking by 2 classes would be very radical. ______ Use the average of the RPI/LaxIndex/Pinkos (whatever system) over 2 years (preferably after the playoffs are done) to continue to allow teams to "earn" points as they progress. Lowest 10 teams drop a classification, top 10 teams move up a classification. It would take 10 years for a 3A team to make it to 7A, slow changes are important if you are going to sell this idea. Brand new public schools start at 3A (no matter their size) and have to work their way up while they gather some stability in their program. Assuming we just used this year's RPI for 5A-8A. 8A Drops to 7A: Alonso (Tampa, FL) Oak Ridge (Orlando, FL) Haines City (FL) Leonard (Greenacres, FL) Cypress Creek (Orlando, FL) West Broward (Pembroke Pines, FL) Piper (Sunrise, FL) University (Orlando, FL) Windermere (FL) Spanish River (Boca Raton, FL) 7A Rises to 8A: St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, FL) Armwood (Seffner, FL) Lakeland (FL) Edgewater (Orlando, FL) Palm Beach Lakes (West Palm Beach, FL) Niceville (FL) Fleming Island (Orange Park, FL) Bloomingdale (Valrico, FL) Viera (FL) Tampa Bay Tech (Tampa, FL) 7A Drops to 6A: Olympic Heights (Boca Raton, FL) Homestead (FL) Strawberry Crest (Dover, FL) American (Hialeah, FL) Everglades (Miramar, FL) North Port (FL) West Boca Raton (Boca Raton, FL) Miami Beach (FL) Leto (Tampa, FL) Mater Academy Charter (Hialeah Gardens, FL) 6A Rises to 7A: Palmetto (FL) Naples (FL) Port Charlotte (FL) Escambia (Pensacola, FL) Lake Gibson (Lakeland, FL) Gaither (Tampa, FL) Dillard (Fort Lauderdale, FL) Clearwater (FL) Largo (FL) Fort Myers (FL) 6A Drops to 5A Port St. Lucie (FL) Northeast (Oakland Park, FL) Deltona (FL) Okeechobee (FL) Freedom (Tampa, FL) Spoto (Riverview, FL) Hollywood Hills (Hollywood, FL) Pine Ridge (Deltona, FL) Gateway (Kissimmee, FL) Brandon (FL) 5A Rises to 6A Rockledge (FL) American Heritage (Plantation, FL) Northwestern (Miami, FL) Jones (Orlando, FL) Eau Gallie (Melbourne, FL) Wakulla (Crawfordville, FL) Lake Wales (FL) Dunnellon (FL) Citrus (Inverness, FL) 5A Drops to 4A Estero (FL) Lake Weir (Ocala, FL) Stanton (Jacksonville, FL) Ridgeview (Orange Park, FL) Tarpon Springs (FL) Booker (Sarasota, FL) Cape Coral (FL) Belleview (FL) Gibbs (St. Petersburg, FL) Gulf (New Port Richey, FL) In quickly looking at this, I know there are some problems. Palm Beach Lakes could be the newest fad of a team and probably doesn't have long term to stay at 8A, oh well. How many of the teams that are dropping are we thinking that they just had a bad year vs them being a constant homecoming/senior night opponent? The goal of the FHSAA has to be to create an equitable playing field. Size is a good indicator of the talent that should be available at a school, but obviously, it is not the only indicator. So let's use size, but also use wins and losses, Strength of Schedule, and other factors. Teams want to face equal level teams. Nobody on this board thinks Trinity Christian (Jax) or Chaminade-Madonna playing at 3A is good for them or 3A. For those fearful of big teams moving down, look at a team like Stanton (Jax), they could move 2A and barely be competitive, but at least they would have a chance rather than staying at 5A.

    Suggestion for fixing the system

    If there is 512 teams just classify them in 5 classes by enrollment. That’s 102 teams per class. You have 16 districts. 102/16 equals 6.4 meaning each district would have 6-7 teams per district. Champs and runner ups advance. Positives would be relief on scheduling and travel.
