  1. In Between Broward and Davie by 95 is actually all Stranahan. Contrary to popular belief (for some) , Stranahan is actually more so in STA's backyard - not Dillard like some perceive: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Stranahan+High+School/@26.1213032,-80.1679858,14.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xe5274072f5d94230!8m2!3d26.1128269!4d-80.1644877 If I am not mistaken Dillard's zone was more centered around Sunrise, like Broward blvd (west of 95) to 441 (SR7), north up to 19th St and east to like Powerline: There is no doubt that back in the day Dillard's roster had a lot of neighborhood kids surrounding Dillard HS , but 20+ years later things have changed. Mighty might be able to confirm this but has the vibe at Dillard shifted to more of a basketball atmosphere in terms of putting on that Panther uniform as a Dillard Panther with pride from the local kids in the neighborhood? I'm not saying football is still not big in those neighborhoods but it seems football seems to be of less emphasis from the community of late versus basketball?
  2. Saw some clips of that Wekiva Defense and it looked pretty scary....the speed to the ball.
  3. Winner of Jackson versus Coconut Creek might get the third playoff spot in the District. I wouldn't sleep on Creek either.
  4. The winter/spring 7 v 7 are private travel teams that play throughout FL and nationwide in some cases. Summer 7 v 7 are HS teams.
  5. But can you explain or any theory why he may move around like that from different counties/regions of FL?
  6. Surely, there are no high profile 7 V 7 tourneys outside of SFL and if there were they surely would not say anything beyond "Good game" to one another..... In SFL they set up air conditioned lounges with champagne rooms at the 7 v 7s so the kids have a nice environment to discuss business
  7. These are the kind of things that somehow go unnoticed though when it works the other way around.....That and the fact that the Immokalee roster and coaches appears to be 50% Hispanic. God forbid OldSchoolLion sees a successful team with a team photo like this: https://www.hudl.com/team/v2/12127/Boys-Varsity-Football/team Again it is not supposed to work like this but welcome to 2018.
  8. Can you explain why and how Immokalee's best player in RB Abraham Alce with multiple Power Five offers transferred from AHP to Immokalee for his Senior year? https://www.hudl.com/profile/3490471/Abraham-Alce It sounds like they are trying to build a All-Star team out there. How can he go to a random public school like that? I thought this was supposed to work the other way around. Oh, wait a minute this is a small example of how a rural public school benefited from the new rule chage - Or is it not?
  9. In 2009 Hardee (9-2) did indeed beat Immokalee (4-6). In 2013 Hardee (11-2) did beat Dunbar (5-6) as well. I'm not aware of any other wins over those programs since the early 2000s, but I may be wrong. There are few 1A schools that are of the level of Madison or Pahokee on a consistent basis in the South Region of FL so I don't know if you even would want to mention who it was. But I am curious now..... What 1A program has Hardee have a good track record with in recent years?
  10. In the link, I see some some very poor counties that are successful (Glades) and some wealthier counties that struggle (Monroe). I cannot conclude much from this. To me their are great teams from rich areas and their are great teams from poor areas. I'm not just talking FL but nationwide. There are also piss-poor inner-city teams and very strong rural teams. I think you can make a argument for it any way you wish with data...I just don't have the energy to start breaking football down by demographics and race. Again, I'm not denying your theory. I also question the accuracy of this chart. Seeing Wakulla and Broward "wealthier" then Palm Beach County raised my eyebrows. I'm not going to get into the demographics or races and am not questioning your theory on that...I'm just not going to comment or get into it on this site. As to the comment on transfers, ethics etc...you have a opinion and other people have an opinion. You both may believe you are right and can argue it both ways. All that matters though is what the FHSAA states in the present. The rest is only opinions and respectfully speaking- irrelevant to what the present state is.
  11. Seriously??? You just said "Hardee would do fine against Madison or Pahokee."? Okay. I'll let you win this one.
  12. Glad someone can admit that. Stacked teams in SFL are not going away. Sometimes if something is not working you have to try something else. Ponte Vedra seemed to figured it out quickly. Venice took advantage of a opportunity in 2017. ...
  13. Okay..Fine game on. Your call. 1. I'm not denying that topic but I am surprised by the details that you state...I know AHP has not been a super power for long and I know STA has great teams in the past but not the run they have had in recent years. 2. LOL ..What does that mean? So what if WH are a 7A school. Do you want to see what some 1, 2, and 3A schools would do to Hardee? There are plenty of 1,2,3, and 4A schools that can show Hardee how to take care of business with teams like Dunbar ..LOL 3. Yeah, Okay...appreciate the answer but as much as OldSchoolLion has convinced you. "Coaching" is likely not the jist of the reason Hardee is struggling in the post-season. 4. Sure.. A true representative what a 5A in Florida High School football should look like. Glad to see you have high standards for FL HS football. 5. There are plenty of 1,2,3 and 4A schools out there that could have won 5A States last year over BC. There were also plenty of 4-5 5A schools capable of upsetting AHP. The 5A team that faced AHP at states is not one of them . Not sure how much you get away from Highway 17 and Hardee but consider getting out more. Take a trip to Fort Myers, Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando or even Trez Powell if you get the opportunity. A stacked team is not the only reason BC lost that game. It surely had nothing to do with overall team speed, right? "5A is a mid-sized school class. " That is somewhat correct. Considering there are 8 classifications, "5" is slightly above the mid point of 4 and you have a mid/mid upper class. How about we send Madison County and Pahokee out to Hardee to teach you a thing or two about classification size and talent. Next.
  14. But that is not a problem when a 5A rep shows up at a State Championship looking like that, right? It appears others would prefer to find an issue with the team performing well and blame that for the reason for that blow out. SMH...
