  1. 49 Columbia vs 20 Bartram Trail [Spring Game] Final

    Not a fan of IMG. Seems like that is a better then average possibility. Still way to early, but with the "District of Death" (Miami) out of play, my spirit's are ascending upwards
  2. 49 Columbia vs 20 Bartram Trail [Spring Game] Final

    Spring game, controlled practice, or whatever, to stomp BT like that tells me Columbia High got some horses. BT, like Mainland ALWAYS PLAYS TO WIN. See you in the late fall my young Tiger alumnus...
  3. Dan in Daytona

    Out of the loop, news to me. Saw you guys last year in some 7 on 7's and I was impressed. Is it here or there ? Use to hang with a guy who played at Avon Park (Rufus Wilson) way back in the day.....
  4. Treasure Coast Trivia Question

    The stadium itself was there long before 1967. Back in the day it was the Tangerine Bowl. We played against Metro Conference foe Orlando Jones there. It was open ended. Edit : correct article below http://www.campingworldstadium.com/about/history
  5. Daytona Mainland tops St Augustine and Jax Mandarin

    My bad. The young man that did play was an athlete and could throw the ball with accuracy. He needs to be on the field somewhere or take a walk.
  6. Daytona Mainland tops St Augustine and Jax Mandarin

    Thanks for the heads up 'Rocket. Now that Daytona Beach has the championships for the next few years, could be Miami Central on the Bucs home field again. It didn't help in '08 or '09 when a young D Freemen ran through us in the 2nd half or the other couple times in the playoffs up here, but who knows......I've always had much respect for the Rockets, wings and drinks on me if you come up...
  7. Each of the three teams played a half game against each other. Mainland overwhelmed the home field Yellow Jackets (ST. A) 25-6 , and edged the reigning Florida large school champions (8A) Jacksonville Mandarin 10-7. Mandarin's starting QB Carson Beck threw for 3,546 yrds and 39 td's last year and was named "MR Football" in Florida. He has a very strong arm , good feet, and throws a beautiful ball. Mainland ate the clock up, cut down on his field time, and stayed in his face....For the 1st time since the 2010 season, Mainland is back in the Northern playoff Bracket. The Miami Monsters of Dade county (Central, Carol City, Northwestern) have knocked the Buccaneers out of the playoffs 7 times in the last 8 years. NO MAS!! ...Armwood here we come...
  8. I still have the FHSAA Game Day program from that Saturday December 20th doubleheader featuring four undefeated finalist. Raines (14-0) edged Glade Central (14-0) 32-27 on the stellar play of their QB. The nite cap had Miami Carol City (14-0) just beating Lake City Columbia (14-0) 20-17 in front of several thousand Tiger fans who followed their team the short distance down I-75 to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville. Up until recently when the FHSAA started handing out paper team rosters at the gate in state title games, I still have all the game day programs from the late 1980's to around 2014. From 1989-2017 I saw at least one championship day for 29 straight years. Wave and Darter both can also claim numbers like that too.
  9. Who Was This Electric Player? Chevelle Buie

    Great running back.
  10. Can You Name These Schools?

    Father Lopez Green Wave Apopka Blue Darters St Augustine Yellow Jackets Lake Howell Silverhawks Gainesville Purple Hurricanes ? Red Raiders, ? Red Devils, ? Crimson Tide, ? Blue Balls
  11. Name This State Champion Team-Delray Beach Carver

    Saw them knock Daytona Fr. Lopez out of the playoffs in one of those championship years. Had a cousin playing for the Green Wave at that time. Lopez had black athletes in the early 1960's. They were recuited out of the public junior highs (7-9 grd.). One of the earliest was (Dr) Ernest Cook. Later on he was a star fullback for the U. of Minnesota Golden Gophers. Back then no college freshman could play on a D-1 Varsity team (only JV). Yes Kids, colleges had JV teams....
  12. Disney event 2019

    Actually your Tigers beat my Bucs at Disney in the early 2000's. At that time the venue sucked (no bleachers). The game wasn't even played on the main field. There were two out of state teams (lacking Lake City/Mainland athletes) occupying that rinky-dink, small white painted six row high bleacher set-up. Hopefully in the last 20yrs it's been upgraded. Disney wants the out-of-state exposure and whole families coming in to spend time and money at it's attractions. Not guys like "badbird" or I who might drop $10 and haul a$$ home after watching two national powers battle it out....just my .02
  13. Unsigned kids...I don’t know why

    Would that be Jesse Hester (FSU) ? If so, I remember him well.....great ball player
  14. Willie must go...

    First in the SEC, but not the south. I saw Eddie McAshan of the Gainsville Purple Hurricanes in 1967 at Memorial Stadium(Daytona) beat my future team (Mainland) in a nail biter killing Mainland's title possibilities. He was an elusive magician. He started for Georgia Tech. Wikipedia says Freddie Summers was the 1st southern black QB of a major school (Wake Forrest 1967). I've been spreading a lie about Eddie for over 50yrs. He was 2nd.......my bad
  15. Unsigned kids...I don’t know why

    Only have time this morning to watch WR/Kick Returner Jymetre Hester. WHAT A BALL PLAYER ! I like the QB too. Thanks for the video.
