  1. 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.
  2. Ok, after reading and watching the clip again, I can see why. Truly remarkable.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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 fi
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Too bad this won't count for the official record. IMG will still offcially be on a 37 game winning streak.
  11. 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 Jo
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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 eve
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
