  1. Have you been to a school with 200 high school students? Or 300 middle and high school students combined? What about if the problem is reversed? What if there isn't enough middle school athletes for your daughter to play middle school basketball? Should she 1) sit around and do nothing until 9th grade??? or 2) play with the varsity and gain valuable experience even if it's 1 minute a game???

  2. A few years ago we kind of briefly touched on this topic, but I really had to go look at the numbers to see just How Frequently Broward county (PUBLIC) Schools actually hoist the FHSAA trophy in football. when you look at counties with the most talent across the entire state BROWARD COUNTY will come in No Less Then #2 in the ENTIRE state only behind Miami but yet these numbers Below Are VERY alarming. since 1986-2020 these are your BROWARD COUNTY (PUBLIC SCHOOL) champions. 1986 - Dillard Beat Tarpon Springs 1989 - Dillard Beat Merritt island 40-14 2002- Blanche ely beat Wharton high 2009 Miramar defeated DEland 2015 Flanagan beat Osceola 2016 - NONE 2017 - NONE 2018- NONE 2019 - NONE 2020- NONE So from 1986-2020 there has only been 5 Broward county public school football titles (SMH) which two was from Dillard. After 1989 There were only 2 Broward county public schools to make the state championship game from 1990-2000 & the two teams were 1992- Dillard who was beaten by manatee 2000- Dillard lost 10-6 to Palm Bay before 1986 the last broward county public school to hoist a Football title was Hollywood Hills who defeated Raines 22-9 in 1973!!!!! so again I ask, WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON with The public schools in broward county !???? I would love feed back from you guys on this topic @badbird @VeniceIndiansFootball @ColumbiaHighFan2017class @DarterBlue2 @561_Fan @MC Rockets @muckboy561

  3. There’s nothing I can really say that DarterBlue hasn’t already put magnificently. One thing I can tell you, though, is that there is more incentive to go to an STA or American Heritage, than there is for a Dillard or other public schools in Broward. The problem doesn’t only rely on recruiting, though. Things like how much money a program has or how good their coaching staff is also play massive roles in shaping the success of a program. Teams can have a lot of talent, but be poorly coached and not understand how to overcome adversity when they get down or face a foreign situation in game time. Personally, I see this is as a make-or-break year for Dillard. They have a lot of talent returning, and a huge task approaching with STA in their district. This is going to rely on how well-coached and disciplined Dillard is, to knock off STA and get a chance to play them at home should they meet again in the playoffs.

  4. Tbh I don’t think so, especially in south Florida. Back in the 80s & 90s the kids had pride for their home school, they wanted to beat those privileged private schools boys not join them. but now with the NFL & nba trading and recruiting and forming these super teams. It has trickled down to high school. Nobody wants to beat the big dawg they rather join the big dawg. add that with these private schools having more access to huge universities and connections and etc, u present that in a face of a young man who comes from nothing he’s gonna take that opportunity.

  5. In the past 20+ years, Deerfield Beach has been the most consistent public. But they have only made the title game once, and got blown out after upsetting a talented, but very young MNW team in 2005. They also lost semifinals to Apopka in 2001 and to Edgewater in 2003 and to Miami Northwestern in 2007 and to Columbus in 2019. Apopka, Columbus and Northwestern went on to win states those years. Edgewater fell to a Carol City team that had one of the best high school defenses I ever saw. Dillard has resurrected itself over the past three seasons, but is still awaiting a deep run. It has been hampered by having to play powerhouse teams early on in the playoffs. So, the jury is out on Dillard. The talent is certainly there, but it will need the staff to stay relatively intact so that they can keep it at Dillard. If they do, I expect you will make a title game within the next 2-5 years. Having St. Thomas Aquinas in your district is both a blessing and a curse.

  7. As far as Football is concerned. Poinciana had tried to get games with both but lost out due to scheduling. The orange county Ad had a lot to do with their scheduling. I know one of the coaches and hoping they will do well! Still trying to rebuild poinciana. This will be my first year with a schedule that I was able to negotiate. Hopefully we will do well. With our long time rival (Liberty) having to find a new coach after the spring, hopefully this will do well for us. I feel this is a respectable schedule , knowing who we are and the level of competition. We will be challenged ! but have the ability to win a few games this year. not stuck in a unwinnable district (bartow, winterhaven, george jenkins, all good teams but over our heads) Poincianas schedule: KOC Cypress creek Week 2 Celebration week 3 Mulberry Week 4 Lake region Week 5 Tenoroc Week 6 Foundation Academy Week 7 Davenport Week 8 Haines City Week 9 Parrish Community Week 10 Akelyns Angels Week 11 Liberty We are still trying to find our beginning. Winning 7 games in the last 2 years is a good start. Better results than the last many years. But we are still behind the sticks when it comes to athletes. Not disrespecting our kids. But so many of the kids zoned for Poinciana are going to other schools including our rival!

  9. In Orange County, new high schools are usually built (there are a few exceptions), to cater to an enrollment of approximately 3,000. So, in that sense, at capacity, all but one public high school I can think of, would meet 8A classification. Several Orange County high schools currently have enrollments in excess of 3,000 meaning they exceed capacity. I am not sure what the deal is in Seminole, but all high schools there are currently in either 8A or 7A for football meaning their enrollments vary from about 1,900 up to well over 3,000.
