    Seriously though you’d love for everyone to succeed at a higher level in sports, but it’s unrealistic. This is a good example for kids to not just succeed on the field but in the class to so they can have a career outside of football to fall back on, no matter how good they are.

    My Money's Worth

    After last night's big disappointment, I got to see 4.5 quarters of good, competitive football. The Jamboree was played among Boone (the host), Bishop Moore and Wekiva. In the first half I saw, Bishop Moore, which started slowly, beat Boone 14-0. The score was about right. Boone had the better of the first 8 minutes of the first quarter. After that Bishop Moore had the better of play. Their second touchdown was set up by a bobbled one handed grab by their tight end, number 14, who after securing the ball took it down to the Boone five. No 14, 1 and 11 for Bishop Moore are really good football players. I think number 1 will play college ball at a big time program. The second game ended when Wekiva's QB over threw the end zone on fourth and goal from the Bishop Moore 12. Two plays earlier he had been sacked for a loss and on the next to last play, the BM corner made a big play to tip the ball out of the hands of the Wekiva receiver. In the only score of this game, BM's touchdown came on a long, grinding 85 yard drive in the second quarter. Wekiva is a good team and its offense has a shot at being better than last year's offense. However, the defense is young and way behind last year's defense at this stage. From what I saw of Edgewater in video against Osceola, and my knowledge of who they return, at this stage I am going with Edgewater to be the best 7A team in the Orlando area. In the final half of football, Boone, after picking up a nice fist down to get up to midfield, gave up a pick six and on the next Wekiva drive, the QB Preston, found a wide open receiver for a long touchdown pass. I figured at that stage that Boone was not coming back, so I left before the end of the quarter. Thoughts on the three teams. Bishop Moore is very solid. They and Jones should be in a battle royal for 5A, District 7. At this stage I am agnostic as to which one wins the district, as Jones literally had no competition last evening while BM was in four hard fought quarters. So, it is difficult for me to assess just how good Jones is at this stage. Wekiva is still a strong, likely playoff team. But the defense is not as good as it was the prior two seasons and without transfers in, I don't think it will improve enough this year to get to that level. Their QB Preston continues to develop nicely and he, too, should play college ball at a solid program, though I am not sure what his position will be. Boone is not a bad team. They used two QB running back combinations and to be honest, I preferred the fist featuring numbers 18 and 27. However, they were removed late in the first quarter against BM and had not returned when I left midway though the first quarter against Wekiva. I see BM having a shot at going deep in 5A if they can get past Jones which is a big hurdle. Wekiva should make the playoffs and it will come down to draw as to how far they progress. Regarding Boone, I think they will be better than last year. At this stage, I am not sure about their playoff chances.

    Baker had the record at one point for most consecutive wins. lost first two games of the season in 83 and one was a district game. Only one team advanced back then. Went on to win the district title in a shootout that year and along the way collected 3 state titles and 42 straight wins. Lost to Walton in 1986. Walton won the state title in 2A that year. Walton's head coach was Jeff Webb who later coached Baker to the 1993 state title. side note: There was a young manager on that team that was part of the staff that stopped Lakeland's 53 game win streak.

    Pahokee/Ely/Deerfield Beach

    14-7. Final, I think..the people going live left because of the weather (rain dark clouds). Offensively, PK didn’t move the ball. With 3 backs and 2 WRs out guess it was expected. The oline struggled (which is expected) with only 2 returners. Defensively, they held their own, with 2 starting seniors out..held their passing game in check (aside from the passing td), but their RB is the real deal

    From what I have been hearing Vanguard is pretty loaded up and should have another deep run in them this year. Finally got a true QB this year in rising Sophomore to be Steve Curry. Trevonte Rucker and Leonard Manuel out at WR should make for big numbers for Curry this year and a stable of RBs. Fleming Island transfer Dewayne McBride should have a big year back their and the defense was very young last year so they're still pretty much intact

    Don't know that they won 30 or more straight, but those Pine Forest teams of 87 and 88 were they best I ever saw from North Florida, saw them twice in 87 and once in 88.........they would have to rank up there with my all-time top 10 in my book.

    I must say, I wasn't expecting much from Pahokee this year but they surprised the hell out of me yesterday. They easily handled Ely, and hung in there with 8A Deerfield (Deerfield was much bigger and stronger). Kudos to the Pahokee coaching change. It appears to be working!

    FINAL DILLARD 58 TARAVELLA 7

    Congrats on the win. No doubt Dillard is good. However, keep in mind that you played a scrub team tonight. I look forward to the regular season. It should be interesting to see if Dillard can make a deep playoff run.

    Mr. Football

    Worth noting that the award is intended to honor the best high school player. It's not a "most likely to succeed at the next level or the level after that" award. Similar in some respects to the Heisman Trophy. Both reward the player for what he did over the course of a particular season (and, in some cases, influenced by his career). Let the recruiting services dishing out stars and the Mel Kipers of the world predict success at the next level. Oh, by the way, they'll miss on several players too.

    8A Region 2 - An Early Look

    This is a very top-heavy region. In terms of depth, it is one of the weakest regions in the upper classes. Only four teams made the playoffs last season(Osceola, Plant, Riverview and Dr Phillips), and 3 of those represented this region last season. Plant joins the party, moving up from 7A. Plant played in 8A between 2011-2014 and went 3-0 vs Boone and 2-2 vs Dr Phillips in the playoffs during that time frame. The seedings for this region could look something like this next season. The region lost perennial contenders Manatee and Vero Beach as part of the reclassification. With the Treasure Coast teams moving to Region 3, travel distances for playoff games may be shorter for some now. #1 Osceola #2 Plant #3 Sarasota Riverview #4 Dr Phillips #5 Lake Nona #6 Boone #7 George Steinbrenner #8 Oak Ridge

    8A Region 2 - An Early Look

    That was a very good DP team. Arguably better than the 2012 team that beat Plant the year before. I think the 2013 DP team would have gone on to beat Ft. Pierce Central, as Plant did, but would have had two very tough games after that (against Apopka, who beat Plant, and against South Dade, who beat Apopka for the 8A title).

    I’ll rank them: 1t) Dr. Phillips 1t) Plant 3) Osceola 4) Sarasota Riverview 5) Lake Nona 6) Boone 7) Olympia Plant and Dr. Phillips will renew their rivalry. Those were classics from 2011 to 2014. The 2013 OT game was a nightmare as a sure DP pick was tipped and the Plant WR took it ~80 yards to force OT in the last 2 minutes.

    6A Region 4 - An Early Look

    Talk about a region that changed drastically...only 3 of the 8 playoff teams from last season return this year...Central, Norland and Dillard. Northwestern, Carol City and Mainland are out of the way of Central, which is a boon for them. They do get always strong Southridge, though, which drops all the way down from 8A. And with the addition of Braden River and Jefferson to Region 3, that region may not be quite the pushover it has been in the past for the 6A Miami teams. Playoff teams for Region 4 could look something like below. Italicized teams won district titles last year. Central is loaded with talent and should be the heavy favorite. Naples is always strong and got Northwestern out of the way, but now they have to deal with Central. Norland has been a spoiler in years past. District Champions: Central Dillard Fort Myers Naples ...fighting it out for the remaining 4 playoff slots Barron Collier Belen Jesuit Immokalee Norland North Fort Myers Southridge

    True True but when you say central should be heavy faves let’s remeber it was 7-6 Dillard after 1st Qt and 28-21 central with 2:06 left on the clock in the 4th. I understand central being faves but HEAVY! faves? I don’t know about that. and I think southridge and Dillard would be a very entertaining game. Dillard brought in a very solid well known OL coach this year and he been getting those boys right the OL got some beef and actually is being taught how to block and get push on both sides of the Ball. We got a Two headed monster at The Rb position and our coaching staff have been beefed up. Dillard is gonna be a force to deal with this year I see us coming out with a full head of steam coming off our first 8-2 season since 08.

    6A Region 4 - An Early Look

    In the scenario above, Dillard would have been seeded #4 with a lower average than Fort Myers or Naples. That's a tough seed because Southridge is a likely #5 seed. If Dillard got past Southridge, they would be playing in Miami versus Central. Better hope Dillard's schedule is strong enough to pull them a #2 or #3 seed if you want a better shot of getting past the first round.

    To the moderators

    Sorry - just now seeing this. We, briefly, had a board dedicated to flag but could not get much traction for it. (This was, of course, when flag was not as insanely popular as it currently is.) Most of the flag community exclusively posted at BCP, which is fine -- we love BCP and never created the flag section to detract from what was built there. A flag section was only created on this forum because Josh started covering the sport. So, without many posts (I think there were MAYBE a half dozen posts in like the one season we had it and four of those were probably Josh creating threads) we just made it so all types of football (tackle, flag, college, pro, 7v7, etc) could be talked about in "The Huddle" and all the other sports could be talked about in the off-topic section. We're happy to rebuild the flag section of this forum if the interest is there and the flag community is interested in posting over here.
