    So. That means they haven’t reached joke status yet?
     
    Nothing against MC, but they’ve played GC and Immokolee in finals, is bigger than Pahokee and Belle Glade combined, but are a 1A school. That’s like putting Dillard in 3A and people thumping their chest because they’re winning.
    PK hasn’t been championship caliber the last two seasons, so I’m just calling a spade a spade

    In the past whether through film or game broadcasts or a few in person
     
    Trenton, Fort White, Pahokee, Baker, Blountstown, Vernon and Madison
     
    I also have looked at the roster of several others, it's not hard to tell that overall Madison depth is beyond that of a normal 1a school, even the ones with similar numbers don't have same level of depth

    Gotta love chains! I sent this to a die hard UCF fan last year after their loss to LSU. It shows how using the “chains” you can create a winning scenario and rarely lose an argument as long as both teams have at least one loss. 
    This proves that using chains to find better teams, non scholarship Division 3 Alfred State Pioneers who won 1 game in 2018, could have beaten last year’s UCF squad.

    Madison really isn't really a 1A school. If they can get kids from another local pool (school), then the FHSAA should add that schools population into the mix.
    Madison isn't really creative with their schedule either. With the exception of Columbia, they pick their opponents much like Floyd Mayweather did. 
    Pahokee may make the playoffs, but Madison would put a running clock (by halftime) on this years Pahokee team.

    Should be a good one! Madison is always tough in Boot Hill.
    Madison is not a legitimate 1A school though. They have another local high school that they can pull kids from.
    But the FHSAA let's them do it, so I don't blame them.

    I'm not blaming the injuries. US was a good team and they should've won. PK probably had more talent on the field, but they've shown so poorly these first 2 games.
    PK should've had a better showing then what they did. This is the second game (KOC) where they looked unorganized and disinterested.

    Between 30 and 40. We had more players dressed than University. Its just the lack of experience and adjusting to this new staff. PK graduated almost 30 seniors from last years team.

    At full strength, Pahokee is gonna be hard to beat..We had 3 D1 players that didnt play...The lines is gonna be the biggest question mark. Of they can be decent, this will be a championship team

    I must say, I wasn't expecting much from Pahokee this year but they surprised the hell out of me yesterday. They easily handled Ely, and hung in there with 8A Deerfield (Deerfield was much bigger and stronger). Kudos to the Pahokee coaching change. It appears to be working!

    14-7. Final, I think..the people going live left because of the weather (rain dark clouds). Offensively, PK didn’t move the ball. With 3 backs and 2 WRs out guess it was expected. The oline struggled (which is expected) with only 2 returners.
    Defensively, they held their own, with 2 starting seniors out..held their passing game in check (aside from the passing td), but their RB is the real deal

    Original1 reacted to badbird in Pahokee Schedule   
    Good to hear.  Not rooting against Pahokee at all.  That schedule is brutal for most teams especially a smaller school that doesn't have the numbers to sub tons of guys in and out.  If any smaller school could do it it is Pahokee or Madison.  Booker T tried that schedule two years in a row and ended up with 6 losses each year.  Gonna be tough but got to give it to them for stepping up to the challenge.  Just hope they can hold up.   
     
    Pahokee might win more playoff games than regular season games.  Wouldn't that be something.

    Original1 reacted to OldSchoolLion in Head Coaches who have actually never played football   
    Back in the day, it was not unusual for someone to coach multiple sports at the high school level and it was not uncommon that a coach had little to no college experience in one or all of those sports.
    I knew one who coached football and golf. He never golfed competitively, yet he coached some excellent golf teams.  Wrestling coaching legend John Lyzott of McArthur came there to be a tennis coach.   High schools were not afraid to give someone with little formal experience a chance to "learn along the way."  
    We have become very specialized and snooty today.  It's this "hs football is bigger than life mentality."  Now we need hs coaches with specific backgrounds.  Reminds me of the companies who only want to hire "people with experience" and have no opportunities for those without.  So, how does one ever get it?
    Folks today would laugh themselves silly at how unsophisticated things were 50 years ago.  We got to where we are today by a lot of creativity and "experimentation."  And to continue to evolve, we need the same.  Sometimes the best "outside the box" thinkers are "outsiders," because they are not bound by perceptions and traditional barriers.

    Back in the 1970's, Dillard High appointed their 5-foot tall, JV cheerleading coach as their HC of their girl's basketball team.  She had run track at Bethune Cookman.  40 years later, Marcia Pinder is one of the most successful coaches, male or female, this state has ever seen.
    More so than ever today, coaches need a set of skills outside the technical realm, ie communicator, motivator, salesman, etc.  We also have a shortage of good coaches, so I think we need to be open-minded about such things.  There are a number of FL hs coaching legends who did not look the part.  
    So many of these kids today crave to be loved and mentored.  If someone came along who is willing to invest in them, I think they could gain respect regardless of background or stature.  Having a football guru as an AD to mentor such a newbie would obviously help.

    RW was indeed not a football player.  There are a few others in which I am not sure about but Callahan and Garcia may make the list.  Mesick at Clearwater also never played football.

    I believe Robert Weiner of Plant may be one. He did not play college ball, of that I am sure. And, I am not sure he played high school either. Weiner has won several state titles since he took over the Plant program.

    Pahokee has a patient administration. they stuck with B. Thompson through some rough years. Walkes, probably would still be the coach if he didn't embarrasses himself and the school/program during the Cocoa game and it seemed as if the team was just drifting with the wind. Glades Central is the program with the short leash. It seams they have 2 seasons to win or some changes will be made.
    I think PK will have a new HC and OC from what I've heard, mostly from players. Haven't spoken with any admin or adults associated with the program...so don't quote me!
