  1. Possibly the Greatest Ever HS Game Ending

    Ok, after reading and watching the clip again, I can see why. Truly remarkable.
  2. 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.
  3. The Greatest FL HS Playoff Team Ever?

  4. The 5 Worst Teams in the State

    Robert Marve?
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Former Palmetto QB to Start in Bowl Game

    I'll look forward to watching Allison. He's a former four star recruit, and seeing Miami's QB situation, we could have used him. I hope he does well at WVU.
  10. Who Is This FL HS Legend in the Photo? 12/2/18

    Devonte Freeman didn't take over full time at Central until Brandon Gainer left. Gainer signed with Kentucky, but I don't think he finished there. Killian was loaded in the early 2000s but they didn't win the state championship until the year after Bobby Washington left. One of the best backfields I have ever seen was the 1993 Southridge team. They had three college All-Americans in their backfield, The Davis brothers and Sedrick Irvin.
  11. Who Is This FL HS Legend in the Photo? Daunte Culpepper

    I believe Daunte played for Ocala Vanguard
  12. Kickoff classic scores

    Columbia 33-6
  13. Columbia 33 IMG Academy Blue (National team) 20 Final

    Too bad this won't count for the official record. IMG will still offcially be on a 37 game winning streak.
  14. Columbia 33 IMG Academy Blue (National team) 20 Final

    Columbia 33-6 IMG in big trouble
  15. Columbia 33 IMG Academy Blue (National team) 20 Final

    27-6 Columbia
  16. Columbia 33 IMG Academy Blue (National team) 20 Final

    21-0 Columbia
  17. Buying Athletes????

    I know this topic will be taboo, but it's starting to come out. High schools buying athletes. Tyrique Stevenson, a 4-5 star athlete has been with South dade since his freshman year. he just transferred to Southridge for his senior year. Southridge was just taken over by Sedrick Irvin, who took Miami High from 2-7 to the state semifinal game in ONE season. Now he goes to Southridge and is trying to recruit players to that school as well. I've heard form people that he lured Stevenson away form South Dade from anywhere between $5,000-$8500. Last week in South Florida radio it came out on the Joe Rose show. http://miami.cbslocal.com/audio/joe-rose-show/ Listen to 4/19 hour 2, minute 36. I'm sure this happens all over the state, my question is, CAN something be done about this? Or with the FHSAA rule change, is this legal?
  18. Transfer Season 2018

    He was at South Dade since he was a freshman. Sedrick Irvin is buying all the top talent in the area....LOL He turned Miami High around in ONE season and now he's at Southridge with much more talent around him. Look out for them this year.
  19. Transfer Season 2018

    Jesus Machado is a two year standout with several D1 offers already and he's only a sophomore. He's been at Champagnat the last two years but I recently saw somewhere that listed him at Miami Central. Does anyone know if he's transferred?
  20. Transfer Season 2018

    Miami High did great last year because of the recruiting Sedrick Irvin did for the school. They were stacked. He left Miami High to go back home to Southridge. He'll have Southridge bringing in players and they'll be competing for state again this season. South Dade lost their freshman quarterback to Booker T when the season ended, but they always have athletes all over the field. But, I agree, they're unpredictable. Columbus has been by far the most consistent program. You can always count on them reaching at least the second round of the playoffs and sometimes farther. They'll eventually breakthrough and get a state title.
  21. Coaching changes

    Very surprising
  22. Coaching changes

    I've heard from several people down in Dade County that Sedrick Irvin is going to leave Miami High and take the Southridge job. I don't know if anyone else has heard this or if it's even true. Just a rumor I heard. It wouldn't surprise me since Irvin went to Southridge from 9th-11th grade. He only went to Miami High his senior year.
  23. Cocoa versus Everglades prep

    I don't know how Everglades Prep managed to get this game scheduled. They are one of the worst teams in Miami-Dade. The final score will be ugly. The only thing Everglades prep has going for them is their freshman running back. He had over 800 yards last year starting as an eighth grader on varsity. I'd be surprised if he stays there for all his high school years. He'll probably end up transferring out.
  24. South Florida Shocker (Score not Outcome)

    Out of the South in 8A it'll be Columbus, Deerfield, or Miami High in my opinion. South Dade is still undefeated with a loaded defense, but their offense will be their downfall.
