  2. Let the games begin!!, not only will this be a district matchup for the first time since 2008 but both teams can very well come into this game undefeated. Dillard is on a 22 game REGULAR SEASON dating back to 2018. dillard has turned a major corner and is now looked at as the power house so this game for the district is gonna be MUST SEE. #letsgetit

    No worries, Jambun. I was just stating my personal opinion on the issue of recruiting and where I "draw the line" just reflects my personal beliefs on the subject. I understand that reasonable people can have very different opinions on this issue and can agree to disagree. I just happen to believe that if you allow any kind of recruiting, you open up Pandora's Box to all kinds of issues and problems. In my mind, this will lead to regional "super teams" . . . at least as long as the head coach and/or coaching staff stay at a particular school. Recent changes have already contributed to

  7. That would be awesome and well deserved but hey that’s why they play the games, and unless someone does the unpredictable which is best st Thomas before regionals we will most likely play them twice for the right to make it to the final 4. so of u ask me I would rather lose a close one in the regular season and get revenge in the post season, because beating st Thomas twice in a season is almost impossible.

  8. We have to play the games & see what happens, they’re a lot of talented teams in 7A with great coaching. So while I see us being in the thick of things a lot of things can happen in a season that can help or break your season so we’re just taking it one day at a time.

  10. Even in a lost I look forward to the black hole defense holding their own a lot better then that. if we lose a 31-28 type game against those boys I wouldn’t be mad at all. I just want my boys to show they can compete. and if we see them again in the playoffs who knows.

    A close friend of mine and big a supporter of HS football passed away a few weeks.Steve and I spent countless hours attending and critiquing football at all levels over the last 16 years. The conversation would usually carry over to the bar or restaurant afterwards. Steve loved supporting local sports, especially Robinson High football, baseball, etc. He also was somewhat of a historian, with a memory like an elephant. Talking to Steve would sometimes transport you right back to childhood when we were discussing local sports legends and the places we used to haunt as kids. He remembered everyt

    I mean..... There is a certain school in South Tampa that has a championship count that was assisted by kids that you know... lived outside of their zones and somehow made it into the capacity filled A School and just so happened to be high level D1 recruits....

    Now, see, Jambun, we're not that far apart on this topic after all. Here's the way I look at it, if Johnny lives in the northeast part of town, but yet he and his family are aware of the storied tradition of Southwest High School, and they believe Johnny's talents and skill set would be a good fit at SHS (and are willing to drive Johnny to and from SHS every day), I don't really have a problem with Johnny making the decision to attend SHS. Personally, I'd prefer that decision get made before Johnny ever steps foot onto the Northeast High School campus (and certainly before Johnny ever

  14. If Dillard don’t have a game this Saturday I’m most definitely going to be in attendance . I remember when this was a matchup that was had every year. But for some reason it died off & they stop playing Eachother. Thixx as should be a great matchup this year tho.

    I make a distinction between "marketing" and "recruiting." Personally, I have no problem with schools doing open houses, group tours, etc. with the ability to emphasize, instead of ignore, athletics. If Public High School wants to have an open house and invite any kid in the county to attend, I'm fine with that. And, quite frankly, the only schools that likely will object are the ones that don't have the resources to do even that or the private schools that are already doing it. As part of "marketing," schools also could tout their athletic programs via social media - which they already

  19. @Jambun82 @SportsNut25was just putting the thread together for me, which is 1,000% appreciated. All those graphics and tweets being put together was done by yours truly here. Being a member of the FWAA allows me to get access deep into the College Press Box Portals to do this and put together graphics like this and graphics that are properly formatted for the three social platforms all through one single template that I have. No easy task. At one point I was backed up getting graphics out at the end of the 4th round because we had back-to-back-to-back picks. It can be stressful especially if y

  23. The IMG dude is not from Florida. He literally spent 6 months of his entire life in Florida. That’s 1/40th of his entire life. He is from Chicago and prepped 3 years in Illinois then went back home to college before being drafted. If guys like him could make the list the list is made of toilet papers. Lol. It doesn’t have any merit. Not saying you made that standard, but it doesn’t make sense to include obvious out of state players in a “Florida native” list. congrats on the 4 Florida natives who got drafted in the 1st round!

  24. Very excited to see the legislature reverse course -- granted, some of them blamed it on a "glitch". NIL date for Florida will be July 1, 2021 after all. Key notes from SI: - NCAA verbally pledged this morning they will not penalize any FL athletes regarding NIL - FL legislature passed legislation today that says if the NCAA penalizes FL institutions or players over state laws that FL schools will not be allowed to use state funds to pay for NCAA membership. Punishment includes relocation of championship events. The FL institutions may also be asked by the State to with

    I will be happy to acknowledge it and talk about it. High School players want to be coached up, and get the most out of their High School experience. Good for them and I support their decisions.

    You have to understand where Edgewater is located. It is just northwest of downtown Orlando. It borders: Jones to the south; Evans to the west; Wekiva to the northwest; Winter Park to the east; and, Boone to the southeast (It also has a small border with Colonial to the east-southeast, but there is not much talent there.) The point is, that kids in those neighboring schools can often just as easily commute to Edgewater as they could to their own, zoned school. Thus when Edgewater has a good coaching staff (Gierke era or currently), it is easy for neighboring talent to choose to go there.

    If you have no idea what the Edgewater staff or players are or are not doing, I don't believe that it is a good idea to even speculate about that word that you emphasized. I have seen firsthand that the Eagles have a great coaching staff, and overall program. That is probably a big reason why many top players in the area want to be a part of that experience.

    Lol we are talking about high school kids, of course they talk trash. And yes you are correct, Broward and Dade are the prominent counties for football because they have a great pop Warner system, great coaches, and way more people. I think many in Duval would kill to just have those kind of sponsorships that you have in Lake City. Or the ability to not have to recruit your own kids to get them to stay.

    Darter said Lee has a habit of losing clutch playoff games. They beat Columbia in 2016, 2018 and 2019 in the playoffs. It appears they have no problem beating Columbia in clutch games. If they sucked all those other years then they didn't have any clutch playoff games to lose. Lee needs transfers to compete. Once they lose their coach or a new admin they will probably go back to being a bad undisciplined team. Not sure how long that will be.
