  1. Are Spring Games Necessary?

    I think that a Spring Game is a must if you're going to give kids spring practice. It's hard to go out there and give them practices for 20 days if there's no game at the end of the month. Do I think the game itself is valuable? Maybe if you have a new coaching staff or a new group of kids at valuable positions. Overall, I'd say probably not. Most have altered rules or are in a jamboree format. As a coach, I do love having that time to help prepare kids too. I wouldn't trade those at all.
  2. Coaches & Texting - What Do You Think?

    I’m a teacher and a coach. I use Remind and leave the two-way option on because I don’t answer my email after I leave work. Sometimes kids have a quick question so I am able to respond and that’s that. I don’t use it to just “chat” with my students. Same with my players. We have a Remind group and it is just a way to keep everyone organized. I have the two-way feature on but don’t use it just to chat.
  3. Disney event 2019

    I think the problem with this becomes teams not wanting to lose the gate money. Disney will take a cut. So, if I am an Osceola, Dr. Phillips, Mainland, etc, why would I want to go to a smaller venue and get less money when I can play a home and home with a team and make more for the program? I'd have to imagine that's got to be at least part of the reason Florida v Florida isn't likely unless it's like a school from Miami vs. Jacksonville or something like that.

    I know Osceola County doesn't let you have both jobs at once. Regardless, Baker County got themselves a pretty good football coach. That guy had Viera humming before he left.

    Ah. Thanks. Learn something new every day...

    I think Baker County is one of the schools that ties the Head Football job to the AD job. It's one of the best-paying jobs in the state from what I can find.
  7. Thoughts about HS Bowl Games

    I always like more football, but I don't know how many kids would get hyped up for a Bowl Game. The whole idea of football season is to play well enough to make the playoffs and have a shot at the State title. I think once kids realize they're out of contention for that, some (ie seniors who have no real reason to play anymore) won't take the situation seriously. I do like the idea for teams that don't have a chance at the playoffs (maybe even allow teams that are 5-5 or 4-6 to participate) and getting local sponsors. Could be fun if done the right way.
  8. Head Coach Supplements

    I know in my county, neither head nor assistant coaches get a dime for any off-season stuff. We don't do it for money, but man...some more wouldn't suck haha.
  9. 2019 Coaches Moving Van

    What happened at Williston? Thought that job got filled already?
  10. FHSAA let football teams move

    I feel like there was an idea floated not long ago about having almost like a D-1, D-2, and D-3 group of teams (I may be incorrect so don't beat me up too badly haha). But, the idea I remember was something along the lines of having like 120 of the best, top-tier teams in one "conference" in order to make a State Champion have to go through elite talent. Then, another conference of a similar number of schools that would allow them to play for state titles too. If you want to get rid of mediocrity, something like that would be a way because more schools could claim a title. It gives more teams something to play for, which should help drive numbers because kids feel like they could have an award for their time. Am I crazy or did that idea actually exist somewhere? That being said, I can see a scenario where kids still want to transfer to the top tier programs because every kid is D-1 now.
  11. Who Is Deeper in 8A, South Florida or Orlando?

    I am from the Orlando area and I personally think there are is a lot of good football up here. With that said, I think that in South Florida, there is just so much depth and talent that it's hard to say Orlando has "caught up." On top of the powerhouses in 8A, Miami-Dade and Broward have a ton of great teams in 7A and even 6A that can go toe-to-toe with anybody in the state. Outside of 8A, the Orlando area doesn't have the depth that South Florida has.
  12. Technically a kid could play 4 then 4, but they'd have to sit out varsity time the prior week.
  13. Georgia has a 6-quarter rule and it starts on Friday. So, if a kid doesn’t play at all on Friday night they can play a full Freshman/JV game the following week. I can see it being a pain, but your Friday night kids aren’t likely to play JV ball on a Thursday unless they’re like third-teamers. Keeping track of it sounds like a nightmare though...
  14. County by County football programs

    Tohopekaliga HS in Osceola County
  15. For a county with as many schools as Broward, this was kind of shocking to me. It makes sense that such a large number of schools would be historically mediocre though. And, that number is all relative. I live in Osceola County (I know...when you think FL powerhouses, you think Osceola County). But, it’s a similar story here. Other than Kissimmee Osceola, this county has been bad at football. Harmony had a deep playoff run about a decade or so ago. Other than that, you have St. Cloud (mediocre) and Gateway (mediocre) as the other schools that have been around a while. Then juggernauts like Poinciana, Liberty, Celebration, etc. I’d be interested to see if other big counties have the same issue as Broward. I would imagine so. You brought up and interesting topic though. I wonder which county is the most mediocre haha
