    Escambia would qualify as an excellent, perhaps legendary, team per the standards of the 1980s or 90s. Before the trend of mass consolidation of area talent on a few teams, Escambia would have been a state champion mentioned as arguably the best team in their school's history. But they, along with, frankly, all of the other teams in those days, are no match for a team as loaded with Dade county's best players like Central is in recent years. They'd need to raid Pine Forest's roster to have a chance to beat a team like Miami Central.

     

    So are you saying if all the talent in the area went to one school and the right coaching staff, Pensacola would make it's presence felt at the championship on a consistent basis ?

    You found out by who.  Miami Central might have had a down year but they are way to athletic for Escambia.  Escambia still had a great year. 

    Way too athletic ? A team like Niceville or Baker going up against Madison County, Dwyer, Armwood etc in previous years yea I see the difference but not tonight.

    Escambia offense could have scored more if WR #7 didn't get injured early in the game. Still wouldn't of mattered cuz the defense is physically outmatched.

    Three-hundred two (302) rushing yards in the 1st half for MC. And, because Escambia managed 19 points, we're still a ways from the running clock. MC may go over 500 rushing yards...

    Well it was fun while it lasted lol. I did say Escambia defense would have their hands full but man 300 rushing yards in the 1st half is something I didn't imagine happening. 

    Escambia offense moving the ball and the kick returns have really helped get them in the endzone. That 5-2 defense was a great gameplan by Central.

    Smart money would be on Central. Seems very unlikely Escambia can stop or even slow the Central running game.

    Why do you think it's unlikely for Escambia to contain Central running game ? All 3 of their RB do look legit, the OL continues to be their strength and the QB looks good and accurate so I do think Escambia defense will have their work cut out for them tonight. 

    I agree it's smart money to go with Central but Escambia has a great shot to win this game. Hopefully the QB can limit bad throws so Escambia doesn't lean too heavy on their running game. It's a 1 man running game and I'm sure he'll be playing both ways. 

    I'm anxious to see the team from the Panhandle play against the Dade County powerhouse and in the end hopefully earn some respect for the area.


  5. Gaither had a lot of penalties and I'm not sure what was going on late in the game. Lack of a running game really hurt them and the QB was running for his life most of the night.

    Escambia had their fair share of penalties and should have been called for a late hit/ targeting in the 3rd. That's really the only one that stood out besides the penalties late in the game.

    Travel had nothing to do with Gaither's loss. In warmups you knew they did not have the horses to match up with this years Escambia team. BTW I am no fan of Escambia, but they have a real shot this year.

    Gaither definitely didn't pass the eye test nor were they physical. Escambia bulled them just like they did Washington.

    I've watched a little film looking ahead of Lake Minneola (blow out) and Escambia has a solid team. But nothing I watched we havent seen and STOPED thus far. THEY SURE AS SHIT AINT ARMWOOD! Maybe my opinion will change after more tape but right now i got GAITHER VS CENTRAL in the Final!!! 

    You still feel the same way after this game ? Armwood lost tonight as well.

    So what's your prediction on the final score ?


  9. The game was closer than the final score in my eyes. Mainland's qb gave Escambia some problems, which forced Esc star rb Frank Peasant to play linebacker as well last night. I don't think he's done that all year. 

    If Lee's offense really is terrible than Escambia should be able to win this game comfortably.

    Impressive how Escambia just dominated a team that from looking at scores with common opponents were even or advantage Washington

     

    My question is if Escambia had this kind of performance in them, where has it been when facing teams like winless Mosely and other sub .500 teams?

     

     

    Escambia is clearly best in panhandle but I have doubts how they stack up with the rest of the state, the way bracket seems to be shaping up we wouldn't see Escambia till round 3 if both teams make it there and may include a game against Mainland in Escambia future so we will see then just how good Escambia is on a state level when they are facing teams from outside the panhandle

    Mosley is better than their record... somewhat. That team is really mind boggling to me. They had close losses to Wakulla, Escambia, Washington and Niceville. They also lost to FWB and barely beat Pace.

    Yea it was a running clock to start the 2nd half. I'm very interested to see how far Escambia can go this year. They're ranked where they need to be in your rankings and maxpreps. They should at least make it to the 3rd round.

    At this point I still think Escambia would be the favorite however I don't feel the gap between Escambia and Washington is as big as some view it is on a state level

     

    Not saying Escambia won't win that game but I wouldn't be surprised if Washington ended up winning either 

    Escambia 50 Washington 7... you still feel the same way ? Washington looked really soft tonight. Escambia's offense is pretty legit but that defense is not elite.

    I agree Washington could pull it off but their offense is just not that good to me. Yes they're scoring 30 a game but they haven't really faced a solid defense (not good/great) besides West Florida and Milton. The PF game would have answered some questions but the game was called off in the 3rd quarter.

    One loss and suddenly we have no chance to compete?

     

    Escambia looks decent but honestly not even sold on them being best in their district much less best in 6a north

    Both Columbia and Escambia had close games with Pine Forest. Escambia's offense is better than Pine Forest and the defense is about the same between the 2. So you think Washington is the best team in their district ?


  14. I think Escambia is the best team in the Panhandle and it may/may not be close. Pine Forest offense leaves a lot to be desired and the defense is solid. Niceville is not that good.

    I really wish Escambia schedule would have been a little more challenging. Mike Bennett had a lot of talent on those Pensacola High teams but he only made it to the championship once in 20 years there, so I'm curious to see how far this Escambia team can go.
