    We are scheduled to play Northport in a couple of weeks. We have already reached out to them and offered anything we can to help them return to normal. Even If this involves moving the game to our place or cancelling it all together. What ever scenario works best for them. Way more important things than football at this moment. Their ad responded: things are really bad there now. they are hoping that FHSAA will allow the extension of the season and to try to get their games in later after they get things somewhat back to normal

    Actually it wasn’t close at all(Cham vs Dill), but Rockets showed Dillard they don’t belong on the same field….

  7. AHP starting to look like AHP. Puts together a nice drive. 20 yard reception for 7. AHP extends lead in mid 3rd quarter, 14 2 Gibbons with too many unforced errors. Several false starts, only to get inside the AHP 11 and on 1st and forces a throw. Picked off by AHP, returned to the AHP 34. AHP driving. CG D looking tired, some poor tackling and AHP is now knocking on the door again with their rungame just outside red zone. 5:30 left in the game. With 4:35 left AHP puts up another 7. Should be the ball game. Patriots just wore down Gibbons D. Gibbons turns ball over on downs. Two horrible snaps, some sloppy play. Gibbons offense looks out of sorts. Partially morale, partially solid AHP defense. AHP in victory formation.

    I'm truly sorry for the loss of life Prayers to Lee and Charlotte counties which too the brunt of the devastation. My sister still lives in Lakeland and aside from no electricity, she is okay. Prayers to the families that are displaced or dealing with health or injury issues. Even though our commonality is HS football and no matter where you reside, I feel that the livelihood of humanity trumps everything. Again, I pray that everyone connected to this board and their families are okay. My mom is in Charleston, SC which is projected to get hit tonight so my worries are still not over. At the end of the day, regardless of your religious beliefs or political affiliations, we all want the same thing regardless of how we get there. Everyone stay safe! Stay locked and loaded too...

  10. Was it really the biggest upset of the year? Was Pahokee that lowly regarded? They weren’t given a chance in hell? Should they make a movie about this game? Lol

    The comment I made a few days ago is close and personal now. Maybe over time it will correct, but right out of the box Rockledge has a significantly higher power ranking than us even though we just got done dominating them. That never makes sense, thus questioning the validity of this system.

    First off, friends and neighbors (Ft. Pierce Central, Centennial, Martin County and Vero) will have squat to say if they all lose to this 1-5 team which is highly probable. Also, if this tough schedule prepares them and propels them thru the playoffs those seniors can hang their hat on that. As a gauge, let's see how Dillard does vs STA as what Treasure Coast did this past Friday. It was a 0-0 game at halftime and eventually lost 21-7 not necessarily a rout. Despite their record, they are extremely good. I experienced this kind of thinking as we were leaving the game on Friday night vs Rockledge with some of their fans jeering, they are 4-1 while we are 2-2. Didn't make much sense to me after just getting their ass kicked.

  16. Couple things. I took Jesuit out because they not only have 2 losses, but they lost their QB to transfer. They aren’t same team anymore and it showed. I took Pine Forest out because they have just been going through the motions just skating by. They are beating bad teams very unimpressively. Same with Winter Park. They beat 2 of the worst teams in the country 35-0 and 37-10. And the only game to team that got them ranked (North Gwinnett) ended up being a dud. I kept Seminole over Venice because I heard from multiple people that the refs were just as horrible against SFA as they were against Seminole. I don’t buy Venice is better. Remember 1st and 10 can turn into 3rd and 12 with one phantom holding call. I swapped Miami Central and Chaminade due to MC’s demolition of Dillard compared to Chaminade.

  17. Great question. Right now I would give the slight edge to Miami Central. Miami Central defense is better and more physical than Chaminade defense in my opinion. On the other hand I think Chaminade's offense is better. Central's special team's return game is better because #2 can take it to the house anytime he touches. I think the game would come down to who makes the least amount of penalties and mental mistakes. Both teams are prone to penalties from what I seen when I watched each time play.

  18. What is the biggest upset so far? In no order. I can’t do a poll for some reason so just post the number. 1. Baldwin over Baker County 2. Port Charlotte over Manatee 3. Bay over Mosley 4. Suwannee over North Marion 5. Wekiva over West Orange 6. Seminole Ridge over Glades Central 7. none of the above (post pick)

  19. When you’re within the 15 yd line 4 X’s & score 0 points, you deserve to lose. The center for Gibbons alone helped lose the game. They’ll meet again in Reg 3, 2m post season.

  20. On a side note, the grey uniforms look horrible (both PBG's tops and PK's bottoms). I don't understand schools that insist on wearing colors that aren't part of their color scheme. Yes, my Florida Gators will eventually wear black football uniforms (they were supposed to for this year's Veteran's Day game). I still dislike them as a whole. Give me the classic colors.

  21. Still not understanding this. Seems team’s being undefeated playing bottom teams and those bottom teams have 1 lost from playing other bottom teams are still getting high SOS. No different than the point system a few years back. There’s a team in 1R that’s hasn’t played a team ranked over 400 on the MaxPreps ranking and they are top 3 in the power ranking.

  23. Suwannee doesn't want to play Columbia in ANY sport because they would rather claim we have gang issues in Lake City and garner sympathy even though they have no problem playing teams in Tallahassee or Jacksonville that have gang issues far worse than Lake City and it's not like Live Oak doesn't have its own issues with gang violence As for the system I have always preferred wild cards over runner ups because better districts deserve more than 2 teams and having that system in theory will reward teams who play tougher schedules by giving them the ability to get a higher seed Than a team who goes undefeated by getting 10 easy wins against teams they managed to find that were willing to take a blowout for a paycheck And I've argued for years that ever since 1a removed districts that there is no reason they can't do 2 regions instead of 4 which would cut down on a lot of the teams who have gotten in with 2 or 3 wins over the past few years which is only happening because of how small the regions are

  24. Oh I agree MaxPreps rankings are horrible and even worse seems to not only give teams a favorable position based on last season results but also favors teams who are undefeated with pathetic schedules The last 2 aspects of that weren't as common with the RPI but MaxPreps caters to the teams who hated that they couldn't game the system and go undefeated with weak schedules and were forced to travel to cross town rivals who they "think" are recruiters because they actually win and beat strong teams I would have at least liked to seen the RPI in action for a year with the current classification changes instead of switching to MaxPreps which seemingly is creating more problems then it solved

  25. Remember it is two different formulas though. So how MaxPreps calculates SOS for their website might be different than how they calculate it for FHSAA. Additionally, if there were any Monday night games that might screw with it as well. I have no belief in MaxPreps, but I do know that these formulas only get better once the whole season is played (the same as the RPI formula previously). Additionally, any fan or coach paying attention to these rankings this early is kidding themselves. Way too much can change in two games. Week 8 after 7 games, you should see some normality. Let me get specific on why I don't trust MaxPreps not including margin of victory in their calculations. Bradford is the #10 ranked team in the state. They are 4-0, but their opponents are 4-1, 1-4, 2-1, and 2-2. (4-0, 1-3, 2-0, and 2-1, if we aren't counting Bradford's win over them) Not a murder's row of opponents at this point. They have only given up 7 points all season and won their games by several touchdowns. Could Bradford be a state title contender, sure! But they have the 108th "hardest" schedule. While some of you hated the RPI (still don't understand why considering RPI is often used in determining the field of 68 in NCAA basketball), at least it was to be replicated and was open sourced.

  27. Sad for the kids and coaches who thought by scheduling hard would help their chances at a high seed in the playoffs. I guess the FHSAA wins again with their top secret formula for the rankings.

    That's exactly what it is. Where they have Lakeland, Seminole and Osceola placed is wild especially with the teams they have ahead of them. Even the SOS doesn't make sense with the placement of teams.

  32. Again if this info is easily accessible then I'm sure every team and association that approved to schedule them knows which would forfeit their season. Or maybe they weren't in 9th grade in 2018. Not saying they were or weren't, just haven't seen any information verifying these claims. Either way the game was played and the outcome came out to be what it clearly should have been, just less of a point differential. I'm just curious to know, if the outcome was different and Venice won, would those claims still be put out there?

    Exactly my point as Hornet Fan's home team Winter Park is liable to go undefeated during the regular season, but right now their strength of schedule is 8.9 as opposed to Treasure Coast at 51.1. He doesn't seem to understand that a competitive loss against a top tier team can help you more than beating up on sorry teams for a playoff run. But that must not be their goal, instead they want to make their seniors happy and get eliminated after beating a cupcake in the first round. He is right about one thing, everybody's entitled to their opinion.

  37. For whatever reason, this rule is widely misinterpreted or unfamiliar to many. It doesn't matter if the student started, doesn't matter if they were on varsity, doesn't matter if they participated at all. Once you enter 9th grade you have 8 consecutive semesters of athletic eligibility. Anyone who entered 9th grade in 2018, as these players did, is no longer eligible to participate in high school sports.

  38. Dillard said the same thing. & Booker t not sorry wym? they’ll take whoever to the 4th quarter & they a rival. Chaminade aint & will be just another game, fact of the matter is chaminade has the athletes but they don’t have the bodies to go position for position with the rockets. Even if central plays a bad first half the game will still be close cause thats how they do, if offense off defense step up & vice versa. but this all hypothetical so we aint gon too deep into it

  42. Just curious (and I'm too busy to take the time to look it up): were any of those kids starting at private schools in the 8th grade? If so, that wouldn't count against their eligibility. Second thought: because seasons got shortened for many teams a couple of years ago because of Covid, FHSAA may have made an exception - similar to what the NCAA did for college kids, so that the kids ended up with an extra year of eligibility. No dog in the fight from me; just throwing out a couple of possible explanations.

  44. That’ll be the deciding factor right there. Defense. Chaminade a strong team thats gone play 4 quarters but they defense gone give up a couple plays whereas central defense won’t give you nothing even if you happen to cross the 50 that D is best in the nation

  49. Santa Fe (Alachua) Raiders won over the Gainesville Hurricanes stopping a 16 game losing streak this past Friday. St. Francis Academy won over First Academy (Leesburg) to snap their losing streak at 25 games on Sept 16th. Mourning (Miami) snapped a 41 game losing streak this past Friday against Miami Country Day! Lake Buena Vista is on a 15 game losing streak (only 2nd year in existence). Stanton Prep on a 24 game losing streak?. But definitely have 2 winnable games on the schedule. Not going to do a lot of research, but any other long losing streaks currently active?

    They dominated Martin County and the 28-7 score was only one half, the game was called at half due to lightning, it could have been much worse as TC’s size would have wore Martin County down in the second half.
