    Going to do my best to compile a list of available streams, both free and paid (NFHS), for each week of the season. There is nothing like sitting in the stands watching a high school football game. BUT, there is also nothing like a sitting on the couch, cold beer in hand, streaming 5-10 of the best games in the state NFL RedZone-style. If you know of any other streams, please let me know so that I can update the original post. Here is what I've got so far: NFHS (Plenty more--just highlighting some of the bigger games available) 1.

    Cocoa vs Viera

    Both teams have work to do. Penalties are the downfall of great teams. If both teams can get rid of the penalties they will be Exceptional. Cocoa vs Viera. Teams looked evenly matched. Both had a lot of penalties. The score should have been 10 - 10 at halftime but Viera ran out of time at the 2 yd line. Cocoa goes in with a 7 point lead. In the 3rd Viera ties the score and pins Cocoa back at their 15 yd line forcing Cocoa to punt. Viera roughs the punter in the endzone giving Cocoa a 1st and 10 on their 30. Cocoa scores making it 17 - 10. More penalties on Viera and some desperation gives Cocoa 10 more points. The game ended at 27 - 10 Cocoa, but for 3 quarters it was a highly competitive game. Look for Vieira Cocoa and Rockledge to lead Brevard into the playoffs.

    Tarpon had alum Atif Austin as their head coach and then fired him in 2011. Probably the best thing for him as he went on to get a few FCS championship rings at North Dakota State as the WR coach and special teams coordinator. He then went on to get a super bowl ring for the New England Patriots as the assistant running backs coach. He now is the running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Northern Illinois. I think Atif got the last laugh.

    Why do you continue to talk out of your ass ? First Mainland was scared to play in the Freedom Bowl and now Cocoa, after ALL THE YEARS OF PLAYING EVERYBODY ON THE ROAD, they might be scared too. What's with you man ? Any Florida team that loses to an out of state team is trash to you and a personal embarrassment and humiliation. Stop talking so much trash on the national board and let theses Florida teams travel and enjoy the experience of a lifetime, WIN or LOSE !!!

    I had heard the number of incoming transfers was pretty high, but I had no idea the number was that high. By my count, 20 new players, most from other Polk County schools, transferred in. Wow! The state Senator and state rep from that area must be very happy with what they accomplished a few years back. And I agree that Castle is not out there actively recruiting players . . . he's smarter than that. That's what assistant coaches are for. Just ask STA.

    Miami-Dade County high school football has its very own version of “A League of their Own” this season. With county powers Northwestern, Central, Booker T. Washington and Columbus, to name a few, having taken over the landscape in terms of domination and stacking rosters with top talent on an annual basis, the likes of Reagan, Goleman Coral Park, Varela and other programs have been left in the dust. Rather than get discouraged, the “little guys” who weren’t so little in terms of school size, went out and did something about it. With Reagan coach John Lopez, assistant coach Jorge Rojas along with the GMAC leading the way, months of contacting other schools to get them on board, along with informing the FHSAA that they would not be participating in the state series when it came to football, eventually led to the berth of the Miami-Dade County Football Conference. All 12 schools will still continue to be very much a part of the GMAC, they simply will not participate in the FHSAA state football playoffs come November. “This gives us a chance to be competitive and to be honest a sense of fairness since the entire county has now kind of become an entire group of either ‘haves’ or ‘have-nots,’ ” said Lopez who is the only coach the Reagan program has ever known, starting it from scratch 12 years ago. “Speaking just for Reagan, being capped out enrollment-wise, we’ve always taken pride in just simply figuring out how to play with whatever comes in the doors. Obviously we weren’t the only ones with this problem. Other schools were in the same boat and that’s when we started to put together the idea of doing something like this.” A total of 12 programs joined up to form the conference that is split into two divisions of six, a south division and a north. Forming the south are Braddock, Coral Park, Sunset, Reagan, Varela and Ferguson. Goleman, Hialeah-Miami Lakes, Mourning, Krop, Hialeah Gardens and Westland Hialeah are in the north. Both out of the gate with 3-0 starts, Goleman and Krop would appear to be the two best teams in this group of a dozen. “Our kids are excited for it, our coaches are excited for it I’m excited for it and our school is excited for it,” said Goleman head coach Ariel Cribiero. “I’d like to think that teams and programs that do it the right way and build with their own kids that this is our way of rewarding those kids. We’re a magnet school, our kids are smart, going to Ivy League schools, not necessarily to play football. We want to give them a great experience and going to this independent league will give them that opportunity.” The set up will be relatively simple. Each team will play the other five in its own division and then four other games against teams from the opposite division for a total of nine games. The 10th game (including a bye week) will be played the final regular season week (Oct. 31-Nov. 2). “We will pair up the two sixth-place teams against each other, then the fifth place and so on up to third place,” Rojas said. “Whoever finishes first and second will qualify for our playoffs on that weekend as well. The two semifinals will be first place from one division playing second from the other division and vice versa.” The two semifinal winners will then meet in the championship game, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 9 at a neutral site, possibly Milander Stadium. “This new conference, it’s not going to be any different in that we’re going to come out with the same attitude every week play football the way we know how to play,” said Reagan senior quarterback Johnny Vega. “It’s a matter of knowing that we have to beat whoever is in front of us. But now we’ll shoot to win the championship in our conference and that’s going to be pretty cool.”

    Well to be fair DFB already lost to a school in 4a this year (Carol City) So I don't think Zachary being a "smaller school" quite let's them off the hook for this, even as a smaller school Zachary is generally one of best LA has each year Just like John Curtis would be a 4a school in FL but many would favor John Curtis over most 8a schools in FL

    This is exactly what high school football is supposed to be about; playing for your neighborhood school against another neighborhood's high school football team. It's not supposed to be about who can assemble the best all-star team by raiding programs and recruiting their best players. Rather than make a new conference for 30 or so schools that respect school boundaries, why not have the recruiting schools establish their own conference and leave the FHSAA state tournament to the traditional high school football programs? This way the kids would be playing each week against competition that they actually have a chance of beating, and the recruiting programs can play for the national ranking and play the IMGs and St Frances' of the football world.

    I know a team in Tennessee that has 10/11 open but I feel they would beat Cocoa. Cocoa doesn’t do well North of Jacksonville or West of Pensacola. So I’ll pass for the time. If I find a team I feel they could compete with I’ll let them know

    Cocoa might have wanted to play but they did not want to make it up. It's unfortunate because I wanted to see it. I believe Cocoa would have won that game. Injuries, trip to Hoover, hurricane, loss of practice time all factored into the decision for Cocoa not to play on Monday.

    The biggest issue is that the districts cancelled school. When they do that, they cancel all activities associated with the district (including practices). I’m in Central Florida and it’s not bad here at all but it’s a tall order to get back to school on Thursday (at the earliest) and try to play a game Friday or Saturday. It becomes a bigger headache if there’s a team from another county who can’t play when you can. No coach likes the Monday game (especially with District games getting ready to start). It sucks for the kids most of all because they lose out on a game if the one they miss isn’t rescheduled.

    I would say Jacksonville hasn’t really had a public school do anything. First Coast was getting tons of transfers but never broke through now it’s Lee and they didn’t break through. Lakeland and Cocoa have multiple championships. Mandarin caught some heat last year. Let Mandarin become a dynasty and see what happens. as far as Miami goes they are their own world. They do what they want.

    I'll try. Suppose you are a fan, possibly an alumni, of a school that is in the same county as Lakeland or Cocoa and you have to play them each year. You have kids come up through the youth football leagues in your town and expect them to go to the local high school. Cocoa or Lakeland come raiding your programs and recruiting your best players. Your team become non-competitive, fan support disappears, and soon you may have trouble even fielding a team. Several schools in our Central Florida no longer have full programs (Freshmen, JV, and varsity), others have depleted varsity rosters. Then, you have the added chance that teams with smaller rosters are risking injury to their kids because the kids have to play more, growing tired, adding to their injury chances, especially when they have to play the teams that have loaded up on recruits. Simply stated, the competitive balance has been destroyed.

    Last year Mississippi had the highest representation per capita of any state on the ESPN 300 list, with 14 players. For some perspective, south FL (Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties) had 18 players on the list and the population in south FL is 6 million people... double the population of the entire state of Mississippi. From a per capita standpoint, Lousiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida are all quite close in terms of talent.

    After a few years of below avg for my panthers dillard seems to be finally restoring the roar. Dating back to last year dillard is on a 8 game regular season win streak. They have not lost a regular season game at home since week for or 5 vs Gibbons in 2017. In our last 3 games Spring,Koc & week 1 we habe scored 57 44 & 55 points respectively only giving up 7 points in all 3 games combined. In 2017 we finished 7-3 in 2018 we finished 8-2 && over this past summer we got deeper faster more aggressive & most of all more disciplined & agressive. And most of all the players are hungry & they believe. They hear the talk about them having no chance and MC has a clear shot to states and etc but yet they continue to work and produce on the field. Am i saying states ...or asking for us to be ranked super high ? Hell no but 1 thing i can say there is a shift taking place at dillard high and im enjoying it.

    First, let me preface my comments by saying I have always admired Lakeland's program and have defended their honor on this site. I will not question your knowledge of the past Lakeland teams, skyway, and believe what you say about this year's squad. I did see Lakeland play last week and they looked very good. What I will question is how much you have seen some of the south FL teams play this season. I highly doubt if anyone outside south FL has seen enough of the Miami-Dade teams play this year to be able to fairly judge their capability. And unless one has lived and breathed Miami-Dade football for an entire season, ie via coaching or playing, one cannot appreciate how nasty them boyz really are. Liberty City is ground zero for "nasty" in FL. And trust me I know Polk County very well to be able to compare. Bottom line, Lakeland has NEVER had to play a Miami-Dade team in an FHSAA playoff game. They historically played powder puff teams during the regular season and when they did invite Carol City to Polk County, they suffered one of their worst home losses of the modern era. I am not picking on Lakeland. Have said the same of St Thomas. If STA had routinely played MD teams during the regular season and playoffs over the past 25 years, their track record would undoubtedly be different...maybe a lot different. If anyone out there assumes that those Lakeland teams that beat St Thomas in the past would have smoked some of Dade's best those years...not a good assumption. STA is awesome, but historically some of their teams have not had the "nasty" factor of some of Dade's best.

    Central Florida Games

    Bishop Moore may surprise you this year. They're not flashy, no big superstars, but they handled Boone and Wekiva in their Spring games. They also should have beaten West Orange by a couple of touchdowns in their pre-season game last week. Five turnovers and a terrible call by coach at end of game cost them a victory, settling for a tie. The idea behind the Archbishop Spaulding game is to give kids a chance to play out of state every other year. AP beat BM handily last year, but every year is a new year. BM doesn't duck any team, regardless of which division they play in. BM did make the playoffs last year, so they weren't bad; losses were to Edgewater, Jones, and Archbishop Spaulding.

    Manatee fans:

    The game will be streamed, and yes weather could possibly once again cause the game to be delayed or cancelled. Manatee has a new OC, University of Florida grad Jaquez Green so that will be interesting to see what if any positive changes come from that? The Manatee Offense will be young once again, with only 1 senior among the starting group. The QB is a left handed Soph, that has some talent.....probably the most talented QB they've had since Cord Sandberg, but starting out against a team like Lakeland will be a tall order for him. There are 3 Juniors that have started on Varsity since their freshman year on the offense.......2 of them on the OL. Sophmore running back that broke off several long runs on Lakeland as a freshman last year, he's about 5'9" 225, obviously not a blazer but has very nimble feet. 3 other backs that should see time as well at the RB position...... There's some talent and size on the OL, and above average talent at all of the skilled positions, but the Soph QB will be the Key as to how successful Manatee will be. I like the kid and see a real competitive edge in him to go with some natural talent....but again he's just a Soph. On defense I believe they return 8 starters. They have a NG that I'm really excited about, that appears to be a real disrupter along the line of scrimmage he's 6'1" about 280 lbs, the have Ryan Ives 6'5" 265 lbs coming back at DE, who's gotten some D-1 offers. Justin Porter 6'1" 220 lbs at LB who will be a 3rd year starter, Sequil Martinez 6'1" 210 lbs at LB who started as a Soph last year, as well as rising Junior at LB Sam Vave 6' 2" 221 lbs. Several others that started last year as well. From a size standpoint Manatee should be able to line up with anyone. Its Lakeland's over-all speed that I worry about. Manatee moved a starting WR to DB, have a member from the 4x100 relay team that barely lost to Lakeland at Regionals last years also in the defensive backfield, along with 3 other returning starters. If they play I could see a game like Lakeland saw this past week with Osceola.....but I could also see them keeping it competitive like they did last year into the 4th QT......game was 28-14 before Bowman broke a run to seal the deal.
