  1. I see Luke posted about hiring a new General Manager at Edison is that a slang for A.D? or it's a new position created? I need my Dade guys to fill me in on this please.
  2. Every year you just mentioned compare both rosters, deerfield has the most talent each and every night they step on the field outside of saint thomas I put Vero and Deerfield in the same conversation every year.
  3. Having a roster that has players from 3 counties playing against schools that isn't "allowed" to recruit their talent (which some do but not from other counties I assuming), you should only have 1 losing season. I truly believe that STA, Heritage Schools, Trinity, IMG, and etc should all be in the same district IMO.
  4. Great point didn't think of the push back from teachers, I believe Texas has the same issue with the teachers complaining about the salary of some of the coaches out there.
  5. Yes please simplify, so are they allowed or no? and if so why not more schools pay these guys and if not why it isn't allowed?
  6. Great point there but also having the private schools playing with different rules, regulations and also a different purse gives them an unfair advantage. Look at some of the private schools facilities, equipment, coaching staff, travel operations and etc. But yes like you stated it will probably turn into that have and have not landscape but the current system is out dated for sure.
  7. My question is why doesn't the state allow boosters to raise money for coaches or give these guys incentive performance base contracts? I mean to pay those guys one set stipend if Team A goes 2-8 or 15-0, what is the motivation or carrot for these coaches? But we then complain when the coaches leave for other states that will pay them for the work they do.
  8. And if the coaches are not working around the calendar then their players will transfer out because "X" coach are working around the clock and now you have a less talented program which means you lose games and now you are fired from your teaching and coaching job and is forced to relocate your family all for like a $8,000 supplement coaching job?
  9. I'm just now seeing that the last official day for a few lucky/un-lucky coaches is next Friday December 13th right? That means that these coaches are working from January to January because of the early signing day in December now these coaches are engaged in their programs for 12 months no break and majority of these guys are Teachers first right? because that is what pay their bills I will assume because I don't think the state/county stipends pay the bills in majority of these programs. I know the demands on these coaches is UN-realistic because they do have to work on top of coach "year-round" but that explains the job openings are double digit each year because of the stress that has to put on coaches and their families. Now seeing these games pushed into Mid-December then college recruiting #1, College recruiting #2 (Feb), off season training, 7 on 7's, spring football, summer tours/training, and then fall camp. That is a lot to do for anyone but to have a regular 9-5 on top of that i'm sure can be tough.
  10. This was broken down perfect for me to understand thanks for the information. The Miami Schools are definitely represented very well each year at the championship games and also they travel very well which will make sense for the state to try to get more Miami schools in there.
  11. I don't go back that far when dealing with historical streaks in High School football but I know plenty of you guys are when I read some of you guys post about the history of the schools and counties. It seems year in and year out the Miami Schools dominate the other counties as a whole, I know every blue moon a school from a different county may upset a School from Miami but for the most part the Schools in Miami pretty much run the state when it comes to championships. My question is has it always been that way? or this just currently whats going on and it changes over time to a different county?
  12. 52-7? You are accurate with the Clearwater loss but it wasn't a runaway score again STA could and some say should win this game but I'm telling you this is one team that STA do not want to face in this spot.
  13. Don't know what happen with that game that week usually cancellation like that has something to do with travel but I'm not sure.
  14. This one Palm Beach County Team STA does not want to face here in round 3. Typically STA will face Dwyer in this spot and probably win by 28 or more. But what Coach Jackson built down at Atlantic is a anytime ..anywhere..anybody culture that his players believe in, this will not look or feel like a Dwyer and STA match-up those Delray kids honestly believe they can beat STA and they do not fear the name on the jersey. If you watch any on Atlantic previous games versus out of county opponents their players/coaches constantly repeat the Palm Beach County area code and that is something that is not done coincidentally Coach Jackson and the Atlantic program feels as though they are the true representative of Palm Beach County. Saint Thomas by all means has the better players and can still win this game but my point is, this can be one team that can go down there from this area with no fear and face that program as though they are not what many perceive them to be so don't be surprise if Atlantic win this ball game Friday night.
