  1. I did not go to the game. But I hear that Apopka ran the ball 90% on offense though they have not abandoned using some spread formations. I know we were up 14-0 well into the fourth when Lake Gibson scored to cut the lead to a score. But Apopka sealed the deal on the next possession. Apopka is young, particularly on defense. But there is adequate talent. Despite a tough district, the playoff appearance streak should remain intact. How far the Darters go, I don't know at this stage. Some young teams improve as the season progresses, and some don't. To have a shot at going deep, Apopka will have to make significant improvement over the course of the season.

    OSCEOLA-EDGEWATER

    Turned out to be an extremely even matchup with talent on both sides. The Edgewater QB is the returning starter from last year and gave them a spark running the ball which I don't think we expected. He has a good arm and talented receivers, but not a lot of time to throw and operating against an extremely talented OHS secondary so sledding was tough for them thru the air. They had some success on the ground working the edges as one of our 4* DE was held out with an injury. They have a couple excellent backs to compliment CJ Baxter, so found more productivity on the ground than I thought they would. Our LB core have not jelled yet, but should be better prepared after competing with talent like Edgewater has. On offense we had mixed success on the ground and relied on our inexperienced sophomore QB to make plays with his arm, which he did an excellent job throughout the game. Trailing 22-19 with under 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter, he engineered an 80 yard drive and hit about a 35 yard pass with 40 seconds remaining to re-take the lead 26-22. They were unable to muster any offense in the final 40 seconds and the clock ran out with us in the lead. Penalties weren't a major factor for either team and ball security was perfect by both sides with neither team losing a fumble or a pick, although we probably should have gotten a couple of interceptions. Looking at each team's roster, both will be a handful for anyone. Great game for the fans with Osceola leading early, then falling behind and then retaking the lead. As always, it is just a Spring Game and the way it was conducted both coaches probably got out of it what they wanted. Good luck to Edgewater going forward. GO KOWBOYS!!
