  1. It was a close, scrappy game. Not sure about Dp in rematch, though. Apopka has a number of new guys on offense. They will likely get better as the season progresses. I agree Dp. had a bunch of bad breaks in the game. I feel for you.
  2. Apopka takes two knees to run the clock out. Final score: Apopka 14 Dr. Phillips 7. Tough luck for Dp. Scored on a fumble recovery only to have it called back because Apopka had committed a penalty before fumbling the ball. That was the difference right there.
  3. With less than 3 minutes left Dp fumbles the ball and Apopka recovers. Apopka with a chance to run out the clock.
  4. Dp scores on an Apopka fumble, but the play was blown dead on an Apopka illegal procedure penalty before the fumble. So, no score. Apk possession inside the Dp half of the field.
  5. Apopka took the ball 80 yards on the second play after Dp scored for a touchdown. Extra point good despite a bad snap. Apopka 14-7 over Dp early in the 4th.
  6. DP scores and ties the game with 1:01 left in the third quarter. Apopka/Dp tied at 7.
  7. Long DP touchdown called back on a personal foul call. Hurts for Dp. But they have the ball on the 50 yard line.
  8. Apopka 7 DP 0 at the half. Apopka has had more of the ball than DP but has had trouble moving it consistently.
  9. Yes, but to me the good guys won in 2012. In 2015, that result was reversed. Oh well, you can't win em all.
  10. Apopka came to life in their second playoff game versus Timber Creek. They looked totally different than the team that had beaten University the week before but which had given up either four or five touchdowns to that team. Against Timber Creek, they dominated, holding Patrick to one long touchdown on a short pass. Otherwise, he was totally shut down. The whole team stepped up that night. The next week they travelled to Fletcher and did it all again. After those two games, I became very confident they were going to win state. And, despite a big scare in the final quarter of the title game, they did not disappoint.
  11. I had no complaints. It was a great atmosphere. Packed house, lots of noise, competitive game, and the good guys won!
  12. Trey always had the talent, but had issues with discipline and taking guidance. He nearly did not play his senior year. Personally, I preferred him as a tall receiver to defensive end. He had good hands, ran good routes, had adequate speed, and was always a load to bring down. But it all worked out.
  13. I think this is one of those years when DP gets revenge for all the close games they have dropped to Apopka over the recent past. DP by 14.
  14. He would certainly still have a place on many good rural and small town teams. In the metro areas, he would have a spot on some teams, but not on the teams with a good shot at a deep playoff run unless he was very quick for his size or very, very strong.
  15. Didn't Naples long time head coach retire at the end of last season or was it before then? That could have had something to do with it. That and all the disruption caused by the unusual circumstances of this year.
  16. Individual schools are doing their own streaming. Wekiva has a YouTube channel. Apopka will be streaming live too. I don't know their details, but the Twitter account of ApkNewsguy should have them by Wednesday. I believe Edgewater, Winter Park and Lake Brantley will also have streaming for at least their home games.

  18. Eight Florida teams in the National top 50. Not sure I agree with the above rankings and I also feel that by season's end, Apopka will have a national rank as going into the season they are better than they were last year. But, I can't say I have a huge problem with the above as a starting point.
  19. The quality at the better schools is not bad. What the area does not have is the depth of South Florida. If they allow fans Apopka/Jones would be a good game to attend. I will even sport you a ticket if I can get any. Apopka has the potential to be better than they were last year and Jones probably won't miss a beat from the team that played Northwestern tight at Daytona.

  21. If Edgewater and Jones is still on, it is a must see game. Schools are less than four miles apart and the kids see it as a real rivalry. Both teams could go deep if there is a playoffs. Apopka vs Jones is also a good game to watch.
  22. We are likely going to have a spotty high school football season, and students will be hard put to learn in the current environment as things change from week to week. We need, as a country, to do some serious self analysis as to why this has dragged out so much longer here than elsewhere.
  23. Given the country's past, I stridently disagree with Nolebull's take.
