  1. The 30 Best FL HS DB's of the Past 50 Years

    Tyreke Johnson from Ohio St. is still at Ohio State.
  2. Florida's 5 Greatest NFL Linebackers Ever?

    Thomas, Beason, Lewis, Brooks, and not sure who the fifth one is.
  3. The 25 Best FL HS LB's of the Past 50 Years

    Miami Jackson, David Little?? Can't think of anyone else that has gone on to the NFL.
  4. The 25 Best FL HS LB's of the Past 50 Years

    I just realized Taurean Charles went to UF, Northwestern has to be Marvin Jones who went on to play for the Jets in the NFL.
  5. The 25 Best FL HS LB's of the Past 50 Years

    I hope the linebacker from Northwestern isn't Taurean Charles who went to UF. He was good, but Nate Webster, who went to UM was on another level.

    Jon Beason Chaminade

  8. Who Is This FL HS & Gator Legend? Kevin Carter/Lincoln

  9. The Ultimate HS Talent Factory in FL/Blanche Ely High

    This question has been bothering me. Last guess, is it Coral Gables?? They haven't done much lately, but they have a rich history.
  10. I'm not sure when he transferred to Central, but he started his high school career at Miami Springs as a freshman where he started on varsity.
  11. The Ultimate HS Talent Factory in FL/Blanche Ely High

    St. Thomas 2nd guess is MNW
  12. Who Is This Great FL HS Playoff Team? Armwood

    Great question, tough one. I'm taking a guess here and saying it's BTW, and Cocoa beat them on their home field in the playoffs.
  13. Who Is This FL HS Legend? Lamont Green/Miami Southridge

    Lamont Green. Southridge Senior High. He was the USA Today defensive player of the year in 1994. He won two state titles in high school, but that was more because of the offense that had the Davis brothers and Sedrick Irvin (three D-1 running backs). He was the number 1 overall recruit in the nation, but never lived up to the hype. Played for the Falcons in the NFL.
  14. HaHa Clinton-Dix Went to Edgewater for freshman and sophomore years, then played for Dr. Phillips junior and senior years. Played Freeman and Miami Central in the state title game and lost 42-27.
  15. South Florida Dark horses for 2019???

    I believe they will be 7A this upcoming season.
  16. South Florida Dark horses for 2019???

    A true dark horse I see in South Florida is Hialeah High. They are a perennial 4-6 win team that went 9-1 last season. They lost in the first round of the playoffs to South Dade, but they were a young team led by freshmen and sophomores. They just won the 7 on 7 tournament at UM last week and they have some promising players.
  17. Could there be a chink in the armor at Miami Central?

    That Central team that lost to Grayson had Joseph Yearby and Dalvin Cook in the backfield, and they couldn't do anything against them. They couldn't run the ball against them and Central didn't have a passing game. That year Central went on to run the table and win a state title, but against Grayson they looked like a JV team. Any given year Georgia's top teams can compete and beat the top teams in Florida, but I agree that it's always one sided in that most of those matchups are in Georgia. They rarely travel.
  18. Possibly the Greatest Ever HS Game Ending

    Ok, after reading and watching the clip again, I can see why. Truly remarkable.
  19. Possibly the Greatest Ever HS Game Ending

    Good ending, but that was just a kickoff return for a touchdown. I think the ending for the 98 Soul Bowl between Northwestern and Jackson or the ending of the State Championship game between Northwestern and Seminole were far more exciting.
  20. The Greatest FL HS Playoff Team Ever?

  21. The 5 Worst Teams in the State

    Robert Marve?
  22. 8A Columbus looking for new coach

    It appears State power Columbus will be looking for a new coach. Great program and tradition. If the right person takes over, they can take that program to the next level. https://www.bryantbulldogs.com/sports/fball/2018-19/releases/20181220m9835q
  23. What Is Normal for a First Season of HS Football?

    I agree 100% with this. Depends on the location and administration's commitment to football. When Miami Booker T Washington reopened in 1999 it was an instant football power because the majority of their students come from the Overtown area of Miami. It reopened to help relieve the overcrowded Miami High. As soon as Booker T reopened, all the athletes went there and Miami High football has never been the same. So I agree that location is everything for a starting program.
  24. Mandarin Situation Is Disappointing

    Miami High almost did it last year. Sedrick Irvin took over the program for one year They went from doormats to one win from the state championship game last year losing to Atlantic in the semis. They lost their coach and they dropped back down to 4 wins this year. Irvin jumped to Southridge and is at it again. Unfortunately this will become more common and I think high school recruiting is never going away. It has always been around, but in the shadows, now it's out in the open. I wouldn't be surprised if high schools start to get in trouble for recruiting players with cash. There was one five star player here in Miami that was supposedly "bought" and transferred to a rival school after spending his first three years at one school. It was so out in the open that it was even discussed on local sports talk radio. Another instance, Hialeah High this year went 9-1 and made it to the playoffs. They are a perennial 4-5 win team. Coincidence? They were led by some promising freshmen. I'd be shocked if those freshmen stayed at that school another year or two when you have Central, Northwestern, Jackson, Booker T, and Carol City within 15 miles.
  25. Northwestern Reaches Milestones with Win

    In 95 Northwestern started out 0-3. They lost to Miami High, Southridge, and Carol City. They never lost after that. NW was led by Nate Webster that year on defense.
