  4. We'll see. As long as the FHSAA doesn't reduce the number of classes or the Cowboys get pushed out because of the rising number smaller schools that will meet the future criteria for the smallest class, Madison's big seat at the children's table is safe.

  5. @DILLARD_HIGH_PANTHERS tell your boys to put their big boy pants on, it’s time!!! Dillard is 0-2 all time in OOS. They got sent to slaughter by Isaac Bruce when he brought them up to IL to play East St Louis. Lost 51-7. Then they went to Texas and played Stephenville. They were up big then the Texas heat and coaching became too much. Lost 43-32. Let’s see if Dillard can represent nationally in this showcase game

  6. And that east St. Louis team had 19 ineligible players and they had to forfeit that season, I was played in both that game and the Texas game and the heat most def played a huuggeeeee factor that Texas game had me disgusted as you stated we were up BIG! After the game they said we were the biggest and fastest team they had played in a few years up to that point.

  7. Some are weeks away, others are several months away. Different regions of the state and different schools within these regions finalize their schedules at different times. Factors to consider include: the size of the school's districts; whether they are in a district; attentiveness of administration responsible for such matters; the number of long time rivalries the schools has; whether the school seeks out of state or region games to bolster its reputation; other factors too numerous to mention. Expect to see the first set of schedules out early to mid-February and finalized schedules for the great majority of schools by sometime in the spring (late spring for several).

  11. The FHSAA "reclassifies" all teams on a 2-year cycle based on student enrollment. The exception was last year when a 1-year reclassification was used because of the impact of the pandemic on school enrollment. The upcoming reclassification will be for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years. District assignments are then determined based on geographic factors, similar-sized districts, etc. "Revamping" the classification system would indeed require Board approval.

  12. It was good to see team champions from Jacksonville, Madison, Venice, Tampa, Ft Laud, Hollywood, & Miami. Crib boy said everything runs through Miami-Dade but actually they were in 7 classifications & were eliminated in all but 1 class. Jesuit beat down the 305 & beat 954. Hillsborough had 3 terrific teams in the finals! Pine Forrest went under the radar & out played Jesuit, but didn’t outscore them. Venice made Apopka look outmanned with their strictly run offense. Gibbons & Cocoa was a tremendous game. Chaminade ended the season as good as any team in the State. Aquinas smothered TBT early. Rockets, Dade’s only champion were exceptional! Whata great season....it simply goes by too fast.

  13. In the records book, they've taken away info such as most playoffs wins and the total playoff wins/losses for all participating schools for starters. I've also notice quite a few errors in scores including inverted games, incorrect scores info and downright missing scores altogether. The FHSAA needs to do better.

  16. @Proseteye the FHSAA is incompetent so look for the majority of the schedules to be released individually in the summer. The GHSA asks for all schedules by March 1st and then releases them on their site a few weeks later. You know, competence. Don’t hold you breath here in FL.

  17. Cent has alot of Broward kids on their roster too. It go both ways. Cent always has kids from Broward on their roster. Gulliver has kids from Broward and so does the West. The kids these days play cross county all the time. American Hertiage has kids from dade. All the Dade vs Broward stuff is in the past. Cent is a better state powerhouse and STA is the better national power house in my opinion. I would pick Cent over STA in a head up game. But against out of state national powerhouses I think STA plays and is coached better.

  26. Well, look at it this way. We have to play Sarasota, Riverview, Gulf Coast, and Lakewood Ranch for our district opponents. That’s 4 weeks taken. Now consider that Coach Peacock wants to play IMG, Cocoa, Naples, Osceola, Aquinas, and probably Cardinal Gibbons or maybe Miami Central as regular season opponents. That’s basically a full schedule. No space for Madison County and no real reason to play them. If Venice played Madison County it would have to take place in the preseason. The matchup just wouldn’t really make sense.

  28. Saying what you said is a travesty. Those kids played a tough schedule, had to play 2 teams twice, didn’t lose to an in-state team until the final, and if you take out the 3 mins at end of the first half, it would of been a 2 score game. Also, that is a TEAM at MI, not a built squad. Don’t try to take anything away from them. Additionally, Merritt Island is 3rd in the state in playoff appearances. Brevard has some of the best, most consistent, and well-performing teams in the state, but always is overlooked cause we’re not ‘big.’ Brevard had the state’s top rusher, top kicker, and a heck of a lot of great kids.

  30. Let me preface this by saying, I’m not attacking you (sometimes you’re a little over the top defensive). Jesse, most folks recognize Madison is an extremely talented program. They just are pointing out they don’t believe Madison should be with 1A.

  31. Feel free to disagree, but I think the FHSAA needs to get their act together and cut back from 8 classes to no more than 6 or 5. There is no reason that schools whom struggle to field football teams year-in and year-out with marginally smaller enrollment pools should have to compete with larger schools who have upwards of 3X their enrollment. (I.e, 1A schools like Chiefland, Baker, or Union County having to compete with Madison County.) Or, similarly, even what happened to Hallandale in 5A this year. Looking at all of their transfers, they just can’t compete with the Centrals or even their local rivals due to minuscule enrollment numbers interfering with their talent pool. I’m not saying that cutting classifications will have massive implications in enrollment numbers, but having more opponents in each classification in an expanded playoff format would increase the likelihood that big private schools or even larger metro publics would have more competition and more even matchups. This would eliminate games like Madison County vs Baker (a complete mismatch,) and replace them with something like Madison County vs Cocoa, or a team like Viera or Rockledge. In my opinion, a much more fair and even matchup for both schools that may even prove to be a competitive ballgame with more fan involvement. Would make HSFB more fun overall and make matchups more worthwhile to see. Just my 2 cents.

    GEICO Bowl returns

    In order to score a touchdown, a player is supposed to have possession of the ball having broken the plane of the goal line. Just having some fingers on the ball while standing in the end zone is not possession. It was obviously not a TD. That said, if memory serves, it was a 3rd and long they would have otherwise failed on, and their shaky punter would have been out to kick to a dangerous returner. Venice certainly deserved to win decisively. But, any shot for Apopka to hang around and pull it out late was dashed after that call.

    All I can say is Madison county could beat Venice. Look at the schedules american Hertiage beat Cardinal Gibbons who beat Venice. Trinity christian beat american Hertiage. Florida high smashed them. Madison beat Florida high so I believe Madison matches up talent. Also Valdosta and Rickards, plus Columbia helps bc talent wise those are loaded rosters . Madison would hang.

  38. Although in Leon County, Florida High is governed by Florida State University's school board and not Leon County Schools. The same applies to FAMU High and Florida A&M University. Both are Developmental Research Schools (DRS). There is an application process but they are both public extensions of the state university system and are not private.

    Metro vs Non Metro

    Looks like it has a great chance of passing. I'm not a fan of it and think it's dumb. Just because a team is in a metro area doesn't mean they have an advantage. There are tons of metro schools that suck. Only way to do this right is and make it competitive is to move people up and down based off performance. This will be another failed attempt by the FHSAA to fix the problem.

  41. Tbh I wanna see them BOTH for personal reasons. Miami central because that was the last team my good friend Eddie faced before he suddenly passed away & to defeat them & go on to win state I believe would be….words can’t even express man. STA because I mean they’re STA that’s a whole reason within it’s self lol, but also because they ended our regular season game win streak at 39 consecutive games lol so to end their chance at a 3 Pete & go hoist that trophy would be historical for our program.

Passmore played about 20% of the defense snaps… defense only loses Malik Lewis and Virgil “Swipe” Marshall… ton of young guys competing for their spot that collect their first D1 offers last spring as underclassman Cocoa has a good young QB and supposedly one transferring in to compete No one is worried about WR or RB… it’s Cocoa they everywhere

  43. Yes they would hang bc they played teams with the talent level similar to st thomas. http://www.hudl.com/v/2GB33W Watch the video please. Also on YouTube watch Clearwater academy vs Atlantic. Remember st thomas played Atlantic they have a great defense.

  44. I can tell you that Cocoa certainly doesn’t require government funding to prove that they are a strong football team. They and Bolles own 4A North. Cocoa is one of the few public schools in North Florida that I think could really give Saint Thomas Aquinas a run for their money if they scheduled each other. I expect to see another Tigers and Indians rematch next year!

  46. I knew before the game that Brown was injured and I was really surprised that he was cleared to play Sunday. He did make an effort to play the first half and I believe him when he didn't want to continue playing with an injured ankle. Obviously it was bothering him as he only made 3 short yardage catches. Looked like on those catches that he lacked his regular speed and couldn't break away. If the coaching staff was trying to force him to play injured then I don't blame Brown for getting upset. If his teammates realize this then I don't think that any of them would blame Brown. They might blame him for his antics but not for being reluctant to continue playing with an injury that was hampering his performance. I still hope that Arians reconsiders his split decision to release Brown. Brady, I think, will mitigate the situation.

  47. I’m not trying to bash MI. The point I was trying to make was teams like MI could not make a finals in a playoff bracket that was consolidated and competitive. When you play Satellite and Sebring to make the finals, that’s proof the classes are way too watered down. These all might be good teams for their little area, but on a state scale they are not. Regardless of the makeup.
