  6. I was able to find some of the years


    1921 (8-0)
    Duval High School Tigers of Jacksonville were 8-0 and became the first Florida team ever to be declared national champions by any organization (National Sports News Service). They whipped Dayton Steele of Ohio, which was regarded as the top team in the Midwest, 21-0, and then crushed Gainesville High School 56-0 in what was labeled a state championship game. Duval outscored opponents 366-3, allowing only Charleston (S.C.) High to score on a single field goal. Duval also won games 44-0 over Moultrie (Ga.) High, 34-0 over Montgomery (Ala.) Sidney Lanier, 77-0 over Lake City High and 74-0 over Hillsborough High.

    1922 (0-1-0)
    Charleston, SC 21, Duval 0   

    1923 (6-1-1)
    Coach: Doc Upchurch, Maxwell 
    Duval 19, Leon 0
    Duval 13, Orlando 0 
    Duval 37, Columbia 0
    Duval 6, Charleston, SC 0
    Duval 26, Miami 0 
    Duval 6, Birmingham Phillips 6
    Duval 16, St. Pete 0 
    Hillsborough 10, Duval 0  

    1927 (9-0) 
    Coach Ray Dickson
    Jackson 12, West Palm Beach 0
    Jackson 76, Landon 0
    Jackson 6, St Pete 0
    Jackson 44, Orlando 0
    Jackson 53, Lee 0  
    Jackson 31, Leon 0
    Jackson 28, Lee 0 
    Jackson 37, Leesburg 0 (state semis)
    Jackson 6, Hillsborough 0 (state title game)
    Outscored teams 193-0

  7. 1 Its a lot easier to stock a Trinity, Bolles and UC team than to do it with home grown kids. That's the biggest problem and coaching. I can barely come up with public school coaches that have been around 20 years. Yet the big 3 private coaches have been around for 20 years, i know DP3 hasn't been there 20 years but he has been around that program enough to qualify.

    2 Scheduling, outside of Raines no on else travels outside the region to play anybody. Coaches put to much emphasis on winning the conference instead of going out and playing real teams.

    3 To many dang schools, not only do you have public schools but look at how many private schools have started up in last ten years.   

    4 Transfers, no more loyalty in programs. Everybody transferring to the hot teams like Raines and Lee 

    5. While Duval has failed look at what Clay and St. Johns counties have done. Clay has sent a couple teams to the final or state semis, Fleming Island has been knocking on the door as well and Bartram Trail and St. Augustine have been consistently in the playoffs. Trust me Jax kids are moving to Clay and St. Johns as well. 




  8. This will help you a little bit perhaps but Leesburg does an amazing job with its own history. Perhaps Lakeland might have played them during those years. 

    Also i believe Lakeland has a web site that may help.

    i use the Google News newspapers archives.

    Were all these made traditionally or through competitive nature? 

    All of these are natural rivalries with Mandarin and Atlantic Coast being the newest one and they actually compete for a trophy in football

  10. I am talking about more than just football here. 


    Bolles and BK compete in every sport and its a really big deal, its huge in volleyball, soccer, baseball, track, cross country, swimming


    Bartram and Creekside are less than like 2-3 miles and in the same district and knock each other out of the playoffs in several sports.   

  11. 1. University Christian -  Has won 10 state titles 
    2. Hilliard - Struggling 1A program
    3. Mayo Lafayette - Solid program consistently in playoffs

    5. Walnut Hill Ernest Ward - Consolidated school became Northview 
    6. Century - Consolidated school became Northview 
    7. Greensboro - Became West Gadsden and Gadsden County   
    8. Eatonville Wymore - Closed  
    9. North Palm Beach Benjamin - Independent program 
    10. Aucilla Christian, - Independent program 

  12. One of the many reasons why Orange Park has struggled since is because 

    1 Kids choosing to go to Bolles, UC or Trinity, talking about starters not backups. Had teammates behind me transfer to Trinity, several solid players skip OP and go to Trinity or Bolles in the mid 1990's.    

    2 The opening of Ridgeview (1999) and Fleming Island (2001)

    3 Just when Danny Green got the program going again with three straight district titles they open up Oakleaf (2011) and take nearly half the school with them. 

    4 The entire athletic program has suffered with the opening of three area schools as the school has lost numerous solid coaches and teachers to the above mentioned schools

    Thought ya'll might like to see what the state poll looked like 25 years ago.  It's interesting that some of these teams haven't been ranked for many years, ie Orange Park, Parker, Rutherford.  Of this past season's state finalists, looks like Cocoa and University Christian were the only ones ranked back then.

    It's odd not seeing all of the powerhouse private schools of today like Bolles, AHP, Chaminade, Cardinal Gibbons, and Trinity Christian in the rankings.  Public schools still seemed to have the upper hand back then, but things were starting to change.

    Thanks for the reminder !!!!

    25 years ago, I walked off that field at Manatee knowing I was 1 quarter away from running out of the tunnel the following week at UF and also winning a state title still haunts me to this day. Went 29-4 my three years, yet only one playoff appearance If you can believe that.         

  14. In the Jax area the two biggest sports rivalries by far are Bolles/Bishop Kenny and Bartram Trail/Creekside


    Honorable Mention


    Mandarin/Atlantic Coast
