    SPCjessica2004 reacted to Floridatech in Vero Beach will beat Chaminade   
    Vero has a strong 8a defense that will play a toll on what kinda game this will be....and combination of Chaminade playing Carol City and Atlantic back to back is going to take a toll on the 3a school....lastly Chaminade don't impress me too much this year I'll say they prolly a TD better than AHD 
    Keys to victory for Vero
    Pound the football and don't pass that much, wear down the defense with the run game, it worked real well with AHD and that's how Vero pretty much edged out that game 
    Defense should keep the same energy they had with AHD

    AHD Added to the list of teams who Vero beat that won states on been to states between 2000-2018........, they've beaten 2000-current state champs during the spring, KOC, and regular seasons
    Dwyer spring game 2015 
    Palm Bay KOC 2013, 2014
    Palm Beach Gardens regular season sweep from 2006-2016
    Viera KOC 2017 highly likely Vero get em again
    Oscar Smith regular season 2017
    Pahokee regular season 2017, 2018
    Lincoln regular season 2017
    Venice regular season 2018 need to get them back on for this year ASAP
    AHD regular season 2019
    Waiting for Chaminade and it looks more likely that Vero will beat em prolly a similar game to the AHD game but a lil more offense from both teams

    Hey everybody! Sorry I haven't posted a preview for the upcoming football season. We haven't put together a big preview like years past, but I figured I would post some thoughts on the upcoming season. It's not as detailed as I would have liked, but it's what I have to give to the community.

      First off, here's our top 5 teams in 3A for 2019.

    #1 Jacksonville Trinity Christian- JaxTCA returns to their old stomping grounds in 3A after winning four consecutive state championships from 2013-2016. While much ink has been spilt about the defensive secondary, the offense is looking mighty prolific. The schedule is going to be a tough nut to crack, but JaxTCA is well prepared to have success. The challenge for JaxTCA isn't that they aren't a great team, but it's going to be team health. For 3A, JaxTCA is arguably the deepest team around; however, in comparison to the teams they will be playing they can't match their depth.  Still, expect to see JaxTCA in the state finals in December even if they do get banged up.

    #2) Chaminade-Madonna-  The defending two time state champions in 3A are sitting in a great position into 2019. They return quite a bit of talent and have been bolstered by a wealth of talented transfers. C-M has historically played a tough schedule and the 2019 version will not be any different. Games against Miami Central, Carol City, Vero Beach, Pahokee, Atlantic and a pre-season game against American Heritage (Plantation) will all be challenges.

    There isn't a lot of weakness on this roster, it's a solid well put together roster. The QB situation will work itself out before the powers come calling mid-season. Overall, expect another great season for the Lions.

    #3) Clearwater Central Catholic-  The off-season didn't start off with a bang for the Marauders. Players transferred out, coaches left and then they were run off the field in the spring game against Belen Jesuit and Cardinal Gibbons as they broke in a new QB. Since then? The Marauders have emerged as an legitimate contender once again. The schedule is going to be highly competitive in 2019 (the CCC vs Tampa Catholic game needs to be televised!). I think it's safe to say CCC fans should expect another lengthy post thanksgiving playoff run.

    #4) Pensacola Catholic-  The Crusaders had a strong outing in 2018 and bring the roster back in 2019. A roster which features a lot of experience, 28 seniors. There's plenty of depth at all positions. While the schedule isn't as competitive as the teams ranked above them, it's still a good schedule and should prepare the Crusaders for the playoffs.

    #5) Florida High School-   The Seminoles had a great run in 2018 but were upset by King's Academy. Lead by QB Willie Taggart Jr, the Seminoles should have another terrific season after having a plethora of youth in 2019. The season features traditional rivals and local talent.

    Some general thoughts:

    -->I'm big on Pensacola Catholic in 2019. I'm not suggesting they'll compete with JaxTCA, but I do think they will be dangerous.  I would love to see FSU School vs Pensacola Catholic. That would be a great north-Florida 3A contest.

    --> I think Chaminade and JaxTCA will end up playing each other in the state finals. JaxTCA is better than Chaminade by 2 TD's right now. What changes things is serious injuries.  I note serious injuries because JaxTCA will effectively have 4 weeks off between the end of their regular season and the state championship game. If we're being honest, nobody in the north would pose a threat to even a beat up JaxTCA team. Due to the lack of challenge for that length of time, I expect JaxTCA to reach the state finals healthy, but rusty.

    Chaminade has the benefit of having CCC in the state semi finals. CCC is another small school powerhouse and regular fixture in national small private school football polls since 2012. Chaminade has defeated CCC two years in a row, but the Marauders have closed the gap from 2017 to 2018. Chaminade will likely beat them again in 2019 but it won't be easy, thus as long as Chaminade is healthy they'll likely have the edge in the state finals over JaxTCA until JaxTCA "wakes up" from 4 weeks against much lesser competition.

    --> Berkeley Prep is a dark horse in the south.  Lakeland Christian and Ocala Trinity Catholic are looking good in the north.  I expect all three teams to have good seasons in 2019. Trinity Catholic should be a joy to watch as they are rebuilding their program toward competing with JaxTCA/FSU School and others in the north.  Berkeley Prep has a strong roster in 2019 that features talented linemen and a talented offense that should score points in 2019.  Lakeland Christian looks to be a force in region 2, but Holy Trinity and MCC are also hanging around.

    --> I think 3A will be well represented in state and national polls. JaxTCA and Chaminade-Madonna should both be in the 20 in Florida and CCC will be around 40 with. All three schools should easily make the top 25 national rankings for small schools.

    --> The defending state finalist King's Academy will still be a threat, but due to a large graduating class it's hard seeing them continue to have success now that they are in the south of 3A. In addition, they're joined by Calvary Christian (Ft. Lauderdale) and rival Benjamin School who are both looking potent as well.

    SPCjessica2004 reacted to OldSchoolLion in Who Is This FL Superstar? Malik Davis/Tampa Jesuit   
    Record-shattering running back Malik Davis ’17 of Tampa Jesuit was named the 2016 Guy Toph Award winner.  The Guy Toph Award is considered the Heisman Trophy of Hillsborough County football and most prestigious athletic award in the county. Founded in 1939, it is believed to be the oldest high school football award in America.  Davis is the fourth Jesuit student to earn the award and last one since Gary Godsey '99 in 1998. 
    Davis arguably had the greatest season and football career in Hillsborough county history, and compiled one of the best rushing careers in state history. In 2016, he rushed for 2,469 yards on 214 carries (11.5 avg.), with 33 touchdowns, breaking his single-season Jesuit records from 2015 of 2,337 rushing yards and 28 TDs. The 33 TDs are a single-season county record, and the rushing yards is second best in county history.
    Davis completed his Jesuit career with county records of 7,029 rushing yards and 83 rushing touchdowns (84 total TDs). The rushing yards ranks Davis 11th in state history, and he is No. 1 in county history by a wide margin of nearly 1,300 yards over second-place Ray Ray McCloud of Sickles. Davis’ career total TDs and rushing TDs also are best in county history, with the rushing mark of 83 TDs easily surpassing second-place Kalvin Bailey of Armwood (67). Both McCloud and Bailey are former Toph Award winners.

    Tonight I went to watch Lake Nona at Timber Creek. As a North West Orange County guy, this was way over on the other side of town. But I had a suspicion it would be a good game and I was not disappointed. The score when I left with 2:40 remaining in the 4th was TC 16 Nona 14. I left because a decent crowd was there and I wanted to beat the traffic given I had an hours drive to get home. On offense Nona had three athletes 18, 4 and 9,who impressed me. 18 was their QB who has a good arm, maintains his composure well, and though not a dual threat, is able to evade defenders well buying a second or so to get rid of the ball. No 4 is a tall rangy receiver who reminds me size wise of Harding at West Orange last year. He lacks the athleticism of Hardin, but makes up for it with his ability to go up and get the ball and his safe hands and good route running. No 9 lined up mostly in the slot and made several good plays. He also played corner and performed well on the defensive side too. 
    On offense TC displayed an undersized QB, no 5, Tanner who has a decent arm for his size and makes good decisions. I was somewhat disappointed with their line play but the offensive line is bound to improve under coach Z's capable hands. My sense is that both of these teams, though neither is a state contender at this stage, had solid chances of making the playoffs and could win a game or two in the post season. I thought LN utilized the game better in terms of giving more guys touches particularly in the second half. 
    Despite the rather long trip, I don't regret making this game, and when Apopka has a soft opponent I could see myself going to watch either of these teams during the regular season.

    I might be in the minority on this one, but I don't view a successful high school coach as a coach that won state championships. That might be the metric used to compare college or NFL coaches.

    These days a team that consistently wins state championships is typically due to the fact they recruit the best talent in their area and in modern times it's quietly becoming the state and in some teams cases the nation.

    I've always been of the impression since I was at St. Petersburg Catholic back in the very early 2000's that high school coaches are far more important to the development of young men. I imagine the players that played for Mr. Budnyk would consider him a champion even if he doesn't have a ring that says "State" on it.

    I remember reading about Coach Budnyk in the Palm Beach Post in the mid 2000's before his retirement. Sounds like an amazing individual from a different generation that was able to adapt to the changing times.
