    Ric Flair got a reaction from Dan in Daytona in Dan Burke at Palm Bay Steps Down - Article   
    I think Rockledge started slipping a little when Coach Wood left.  His Raider teams were unbelievably talented and physical.  Ran the Wing-T to perfection.  Had about five plays.....but no one could stop them.  I am not sure of his complete name, but they has a Defensive End named (Carlisle #3) ....could have been the most dominating player I have ever seen.  Wood retired about the same time ODOM showed back up at Cocoa.... Titusville, and Astronaut also felt the change.

    Palm Bay was/is  very good.  Nothing fancy offensively, but they would just line up and punch you in the mouth with their running game, then catch you sleeping with a pass.  They were always very physical and talented.  
    Then, two different High Schools opened up in Palm Bay:  Heritage and Bayside...and each siphoned off athletes which would have normally belonged to Palm Bay   Coach Burke did a great job at keeping his team competitive year after year.  Even now, when you face a Burke-coached Pirate team.....you are in for a fight.  Sad to see Burke go....

    Ric Flair got a reaction from OldSchoolLion in Ryan Jankowski   
    No one has mentioned what Ryan does OFF the field, in the classroom.  Jankowski  is an exceptional student as well.  He will have no problem qualifying  for any college who recruits him. Obviously, he has been tutored by his father (Coach J) who is known to be one of the finest High School QB coaches in the country.   Like any good QB prospect, Ryan is the first on the practice field, and he is the last one off the practice field....everyday.  He is doing everything he a supposed to do (and much more) to lead his team.  Ryan has paid his dues...and waited his turn.  He will surprise a lot of people this year.

    Pahokee will always be competitive.  "The Muck" will win their share of games...and that will never change.

    Ric Flair got a reaction from OldSchoolLion in 7 Great FL HS Programs That Collapsed   
    Orlando Evan's for sure.  I remember one year (late 80's) they had the largest offensive line in FOOTBALL....yes ALL of football.  Saw the big boys myself when they played Vero Beach back in the day.  
    Ft Lauderdale Dillard:  man....those cats could play.  Fast...Fast...Fast.   
    Miami Southridge:  Not sure if they belong here or not, but those Davis Brothers could really play back in the day.  Not hearing much from them as much as we used to.  
    Okeechobee:  Could always hold their own against anyone.  Big country boys could just beat you up.

    You could probably add Orlando Evans to that list. In 1991 it was co-state champion and in the 1980s through 2001 was a perennial playoff contender. Today, Evans struggles to win two games in a season. It is not as if athletes are not there. Basketball still does pretty well and the soccer program has had some success over the past 10 seasons. 
    A good staff with the commitment and administrative buy in, could potentially return Evans to playoff contender status.

    Go to any opening day of youth league (or Freshman ) practice and watch the coaches.  The HC will say to his group:  'Anyone who wants to be a wide receiver....go over to Coach so and so.  Anyone who wants to be a running back....go over to Coach so and so...   Anyone who wants to be a QB.....go over to Coach so and so.  Anyone who wants to play defense....Go over to Coach so and so...   The Offensive Linemen group rarely has anyone left, or it s by far the smallest group.  
    I place the blame on the weight controlled football leagues around the country.  The big kids often are too heavy to play youth league football, and many can't start playing until they are a Freshman in HS.  By this time, it is often too late or the players are way behind the learning curve already.  My experience says that the big boys really don't start coming into their own until their junior or senior years.

    Osceola is never overrated.  They deserve all the accolades that comes their way.  Until someone knocks them out, DP is still the reining 8A state champ, so the championship goes through them.  Everyone is (0-0) entering the playoffs....anything can happen.
