  1. BTW vs Bolles has my attention, classic private vs public matchup with very contrasting schemes.
  2. Same thing in Palm Beach
  3. Georgia is just better than Florida right now because of the transfer rules. We have teams full of mercenary players that are a great collection of talent, but do not always make the best team. A lot of those GA programs are full of kids that have been playing together since little league. There are some outliers that have a lot of transfers like Grayson, but for the most part the kids show up together in 9th grade and win together. Remember when Miami Central won those titles, same as BTW those kids played together for 4 years. I remember watching Armwood beat Central when Cook and Yearby were freshman, Central won the next 3 titles with pretty much the same team. That era is dead.
  4. I saw them in the spring and they looked pretty good. They were disciplined, had decent size, and a few very good skill kids. If the elite teams take them lightly they will lose to them.
  5. I think its about right. There was another coaching change, but the ship is still headed in the same direction. Gotta do it again for the publications to give the props they earned. I think they are top 5 if they play to the level they should.
  6. Yeah, the officials scrimmages are always live, how else can the officials get their training..
  7. No shit. But the district doesn't pay for the refs, we pay out of our funds.
  8. This is not an issue of whether or not the coaches will pay, but more of a power play. The coaches will pay.
  9. Palm Beach County does not fund athletics. We pay for everything as a program. And there is more than just the 10.00. They want it to go up to 100 next year. Broward has already agreed to a deal with the officials, Palm Beach will follow suit, so we will at least have our kickoff classics.
  10. Its definitely Deerfield, and yes they do have a pretty good QB. But Deerfield is a LOT closer than STA. I personally like the kid and wish to see him do well. Boca has quietly lost their 5 best players.
  11. So show me the program that IS getting passed round 2 in Lee County?
  12. I am from South Florida too....And Deerfield has definitely fizzled in the past.
  13. So what program in Lee County is doing something?
  14. What if someone said the same of Dillard?
  15. How are they over hyped? You can not hold their past against them. If they fizzle out, then talk bad about them.
  16. Speed is cool, but its not everything. 2012 at Lakewood we had 4 guys that ran 4.38 or better within the last 3 years at the NFL Combine, and a DE that ran a 10.8 hundred in tennis shoes without stretching. We had guys on the bench that ran 10.9 or better. American Heritage and Booker T were the only schools close to fast as we were. When it came down to it, we could not beat Robinson in the trenches and they ended our season three years in a row,
  17. ECS has been playing football forever, and they have had success. When they are recruiting well its the best program in Lee County.
  18. Can't do anything about how the FHSAA set up the regions though. When I was coaching in Ft Myers it was a given that whoever came out of districts was going to have to face Edison. The season ended EVERY year when Edison crossed alligator alley.
  19. I thought Coe did a heck of a job with the talent he had at Santaluces. Boynton is still very young, but has a very capable coaching staff. FH did lose a lot of talent, but they are physical in the trenches and run the ball well. Don't write them off. Lakes is always talented, but I need to see it on the field before I anoint them with anything. If there is a team in the county that can make the jump. Its Lakes. They looked solid in the spring jamboree. CJ should have a great season. I agree Dwyer may take a step back.
  20. Its not going to be that big a deal. I coached in Chicago where we started playing games at 12noon on Thursdays thru 8pm on Saturdays. We went to 6pm games in Palm Beach. The biggest issue was it being hotter. The crowd sizes were smaller, but eventually filled in.
