  1. Anyone can be a homer and name the great players from the team they watch all the time. I’m sure Madison has had a lot of studs. I have only seen them a handful of times along with these other teams. Those are the kids I have watched that jumped out in the games I have seen. Stats can be misleading, sometimes kids pile up yards against scrubs. The kids that I named I saw in person look like freaks. The Staten from this year was really good so you could probably add him.
  2. 2011-12 Footman Brothers :Jefferson Co Cedric Stokes :Trenton 2013-2015 Hamp Cheevers :Trenton Davis Kid RB : Port St Joe Tyler King : Ft Meade 2016-2019 Travis Jay : Madison Co Treven Smith : Blountstown
  3. Should they suspend the band director that’s tells the kids how many competitions they have won and how great their shows are? This is a joke, everyone knew the kids were in campus and they were touring the football facilities. What did they think would happen? SMH The FHSAA is the worst when it comes to consistency. Selective enforcement
  4. Well since it’s legal now for everyone to recruit and open school choice it’s more difficult for a private school to assemble talent. They have to be all in like a St Thomas and kids have to pay nothing to attend. No way kids are going to pay 3-4K a year to go to Trinity when they could go to Vanguard. Let’s not pretend that the kids that are 4-5 stars actually go for the education. They are going to play on a all star team that will win. Vanguard has been loaded with talent the last few years and underachieved but kids like to play with other “stars”. Also there isn’t any state retirement at Trinity and I know that Union pays much better as well. I saw two of Trinity’s D1 athletes transferred out the other day. I was told it was because of the cost of tuition. Can’t see them getting back to the Brantley days like that.
  5. I don’t think Madison has intentionally cheated at any time. They have taken advantage of the rules with the charter school though. In 2015 they probably should have forfeited games mid season because the qb they got from Hamilton was playing without a release from Hamilton. The two schools met and agreed that he would not play vs Hamilton as a penalty and they would let it go. In reality Madison is a school with 750 kids that could compete with 3-5A schools and occasionally win a title at that level, but with the charter school they are 1A competing vs schools with 3-500 kids without near the athletes that Madison possesses. Two schools have had the athletes to match them since their move to 1A, Trenton in 15 and Pahokee in 16,17, and 19. They are 2-2 vs those teams. 95 % of the teams in 1A will never have the horses to match Madison County.
  6. Madison had enrollment numbers of 690-670 from 2009-2012. The charter scored opened in 2013 with only like 30-40 kids. They now have 200 kids enrolled in 2019. Madison’s enrollment numbers dropped into the 590’s-570 in 2014-18. Clewiston is a bigger school as they had a enrollment number of 920’s this year. If Madison counted the charter school they would have 750-800.
  7. Most everyone knows the deal with Madison County. They opened a charter school and now they qualify for 1A. They are really making a team up from 800 students but because of a loop hole they only count 600. They didn’t make the rule but they are benefiting from it. What was a once in a lifetime team from Hawthorne last year was denied winning a title when in reality they probably deserved it. As long as you don’t have to count the charter school number Madison should win championships. Everyone magically comes in just under the 600 number in 1A that is close. You never see any rural teams that have 611 or 616. Take nothing away from Madison they are a great program and football team but if they were in 4A where they belong it would be a much better fit. Congratulations to Madison on another title!!
  8. Online course was flagged by the ncaa.
  9. Trinity should be ashamed of themselves. They have always relied on having more talent to be successful but watching that last night was just pitiful. They are so simple on offense and defense with no scheming to try and put the players in a position to be successful. I’m sure they will improve and will probably play for another title but they don’t play up to their potential. As for Columbia they have to hope the QB doesn’t go down. That kid is special and he gives them a chance against most anyone they will play.
  10. John Brantley: Trinity Catholic Tim Tebow: Nease Anquan Boldin: Pahokee Teddy Bridgewater: Northwestern Danny Weurffel: Ft Walton Beach Wayne Peace: Lakeland Tommie Frazier: Manatee Stephen Garcia: Plant?
  11. Frostproof beat Trinity Christian 6-0 on a rain soaked day at UF maybe around 2002?? I want to say Frostproof was 6-4 heading into the playoffs that year and a runner up.
  12. Dub Palmer, won a title at Wildwood I believe. His son John Palmer has won 2 at Port St Joe (05? 14).
  13. How about we actually blame who is responsible for a kid being in that situation, the parents. Now I understand your point and actually agree with you on most of what you say above. However giving the kid money in college isn’t going to help any of those things you mentioned. It only masks the problem at hand. In reality what you are proposing is, saying college a minor league per say, and lets not even attend class because you aren’t getting a education anyway. We will pay you while you attend here preparing for you next job the NFL, which a very low number will make and if you do make it you will blow your money in a few years anyway. I think fundamentally we agree with a lot of the problems that exist but until we begin to address the root of the problem we will continue to have them. In my opinion parents (or lack of parents) depend on schools to raise their kid. But that is a whole separate rabbit hole to chase.
  14. So now it’s the schools fault a kid get a degree that isn’t very profitable or one that isn’t in high demand? So who is exactly responsible for someone blowing their money? I mean I happen to believe that we are all responsible for our actions, good or bad. In response to Darter, I agree that they should allow a kid the opportunity to go pro immediately if they choose to. However I believe if they choose to go to school they should have to stay 3 years, much like college baseball.
