    It was incorrect.  Watching it full speed it is hard to tell without replay and depending on where the official was located he could have easily been blocked.  Sending it in to the FHSAA does no good.  Who wants an apology?  At the end of the day you still lost.  Go out recruit some more players work harder and get better next year.  

     

     

     

    Oh and curse out the officials on your way to your bus.  :D

    LOL!!

    Those kind of plays are very difficult, especially if the official did not have a clear view of the football when the runner went down.

    I acknowledged that in my explanation. However, I am pretty sure it was a missed call and, unfortunately, it impacted the final result of the game. I am not saying Dwyer was robbed, just that their loss was impacted by a missed/bad call.

    What bad call do you feel that the officials made that gave Manatee it's first TD DarterBlue2?  

    A play where the ball was scooped up and taken for a touchdown by a Manatee defender in the second quarter to put Manatee on the board. It seemed pretty clear to me that the Dwyer player was down when the ball came lose. Now to be fair, it could be that no official got a clear view of what happened. But from the video, that TD should have been called back. 


  4. Good game between two evenly matched teams. I feel like the officials made a bad call which gave Manatee its first TD and, in the end, decided the outcome. 

    Dwyer's QB was a load. One of the strongest runners I have seen at the position in Florida over the past 21 years. It's a pity he lacked accuracy throwing the ball which hurt his college career.

    According to one internet source, 2% of Columbus' student body, or are about 30 boys at the school, are AA.   I guess it is just an incredible coincidence that most of those 30 are on the varsity football team.  I am sure it has nothing to do with certain private schools giving priority to minority football players when it comes to handing out financial aid...as opposed to academically deserving minority students who don't happen to play football.   

     

     

     

    That's consistent with most opulent private schools. My "boy" Tommi Hill who plays for Edgewater, declined an offer at a well known, local private school. The scholly was based on his football skills. However, in the interest of full disclosure, his academics are not shabby either.

    I didn’t know gables was a public school thought they were private 

    Only large private school in Dade county that plays football is Columbus. Gables is public. It is near UM in a middle to upper middle class part of of the county. I used to work with someone that went to Gables. Also, Chuck Todd on NBC is an alum.

    Not sure if you are suggesting they will be a powerhouse, but I don't think they are a doormat
    2019: 7-4
    2018: 7-4
    2017: 7-4
    2016: 8-3
    2015: 3-7
    2014: 8-3
    2013: 8-3

    My guess is Atlantic Coast (Jax). 

    Fair enough. They are not a doormat. But they are not a recognized team right now. I believe at some stage they will have a mid 2000s "Plant like" program.

    It's crazy how short it is.  Seems like forever when you are young.  Then you turn 25 and the next week you are 50.  

    Time is like an exponential function. With its passage, it goes by at an increasing rate. At least in our minds ...

    Seminole and Lake Howell face off in an old school classic from 1987.  Future Heisman candidate and Pro Bowler Jeff Blake led Seminole at qb.  And a freshman rb (#23) on Lake Howell, Marquette Smith, gave us a glimpse of great things to come.

    Seminole made it to the 4A state semifinals that year, where they got thumped by eventual state champion Godby in Tallahassee.  It took Seminole 21 years to get that far in the playoffs again. 

     

    It is hard to believe that the seniors and juniors in this game are now 50 or above. Life is short.

    that's why I put Carl Madison

    I rode down to Orlando in the back of Carl Madison's truck in 1987 for the Florida Georgia All Star game.  A few good coaches on that staff.  Carl Madison, Al Morrell, George Smith and my pops.  

    That's some royalty, right there. Hard to find four better than the above.

    Lake Howell also has a very nice stadium and facility.

    I agree. I have never watched a football game there but have watched two soccer games and, though its small for a large school, was impressed with the facilities.

    Lake Howell probably hasn't been good since Marquette Smith.  They did have Brandon Marshall in the early 2000's but I don't think they were very good then either

     

    They were not. Had a few good basketball teams, though, including a state title. I am also pretty sure they have been decent in several other sports (maybe golf or soccer).

    Yes, but the next time they did, they won the ship!


  14. Sorry to hear that. I saw Lincoln take Edgewater to the brink of defeat last year in the second round of the playoffs. They struck me as a well coached team. Recently Lincoln has lacked stability in its coaching staff. I don't know whether Gray's departure will impact the rest of the staff. Hope it does not.

    Name the hs head coaches who led a FL hs team(s) to at least 3 FHSAA football titles AND at least one national championship.  The titles may have been won at different FL hs's.

    Bonus question: One of those coaches was good enough to also win multiple state titles in another Southern state.  Who is it?

    Bill Castle

    Billy Rolle

    George Smith

    Here are the answers below.  I find it interesting that as much as we talk about the traditional Miami-Dade powerhouses, none of them has produced an NFL Hall of Famer. 

    Palm Beach County-Rickey Jackson/Pahokee

    Broward County -Michael Irvin/St Thomas Aquinas, Steve Hutchinson/Coral Springs, Isaac Bruce/Dillard

    Miami-Dade County-Derrick Thomas/South Miami

     

    Very hard to believe Dada has only one hall of famer.
