    Sorry, time is up, that answer is incorrect.

  5. Vero Beach schedule so far

    Dillard is 10-9 in second round FHSAA playoff games.
  6. Vero Beach schedule so far

    I don't doubt the bolded statement above, Jessica. If indeed certain 1A-4A schools are being "forced" to play brutal schedules, and nobody sees a problem with that in terms of equity and player safety, it blows out of the water the concept of using population size as a means of classifying schools. I'm simply making a general statement here. As you know, despite a loaded team in 2016, CM got manhandled by Central and AHP. They also struggled with Miramar. And last season, they could not get past Deerfield. If injuries played a part in the Central and AHP losses, as I believe I heard, it potentially supports my statement that CM has lacked the depth to go toe-to-toe with bigger powerhouses. Concerning Chaminade, not sure I agree with the second bolded statement. Chaminade got destroyed by IMG 43-0 in their last game of the 2016 regular season...not very super. And this past season, had they been playing against a Central or Carol those same nights they were challenged by CCC and AH Delray in the playoffs, CM would have clearly lost, if not gotten blown out. They might have been super in talent late last season, but not necessarily in execution. CM's 2017 squad did come together nicely at the end of the season.
  7. Vero Beach schedule so far

    Chaminade must be on a suicide mission this year. In addition to Vero, they are scheduled to play AH Plantation, Carol City, Central and Atlantic. They better be really deep or come playoff time they could be in trouble....or even the Vero game could be problematic coming off AHP, CC and Atlantic. Isn't it ironic that Trinity Christian and Chaminade both have these brutal schedules, but are in 3A because of their population size? If those teams are good enough to play most of their games against big schools, they should be allowed to play against big schools in the playoffs.
  8. In the history of the FHSAA, prior to this past season, only 2 schools had ever won 3 or more regional titles in 4 different decades, ie, 3 in the 80's, 3 in the 90's, etc. Those two schools are Manatee(15 regional titles) and Glades Day(20 regional titles). This past season, Lakeland became only the third such team. The Dreadnaughts have won 14 regional titles. For me, the greatness of a program is measured by its success over time, not just simply number of state titles. These 3 programs have arguably been the most consistent programs over the past 50 years.
  9. Vero Beach schedule so far

    I don't want to detract from the original post, so will stop here. There are a lot of teams that have played 10+ second round playoff games. Of those teams, the 5 I mentioned earlier had the worst winning percentages. In terms of "Who is elite?"...for what it's worth, "elite" in any category of comparison is top 2-3%...no more. Even if we divided the list at the post below into small schools and large schools, Vero, Columbia and Deerfield do not make the cut of "elite" programs...at least not in my book. That is not to say they are not solid programs.
  10. Vero Beach schedule so far

    I was referring to teams that played in 20 or more playoff games.
  11. Vero Beach schedule so far

    likely more than you think...about 200
  12. Vero Beach schedule so far

    I love these Columbia/Vero debates. Let's add Deerfield Beach in there, too. Those 3 schools are amongst the top 5 in history in at least one category....not my opinion, it's fact. so no rocks at my computer screen, please. Only a handful of teams have lost more than 10 second round FHSAA playoff games. Amongst those, below are the 5 teams with the worst winning percentages. Merritt Island 12-15 (44% winning percentage) Columbia 9-13 (41% winning percentage) Vero Beach 9-13 (41% winning percentage) Deerfield Beach 9-11 (45% winning percentage) Milton 6-11 (35% winning percentage)
  13. 25 Interesting Games Next Season

    Thought it would be nice to have a week-by-week format in one place so folks could plan their schedules. Focused on games involving opponents from different counties. Please comment if anything I have listed is inaccurate. At least it's a starting point. 8/16 Osceola @ Lakeland Chaminde-Madonna @ American Heritage Plantation 8/23 Lakeland @ Manatee Northwestern @ Cardinal Gibbons 8/30 Trinity Christian @ Godby Lincoln @ Rockledge Columbus @ Osceola 9/13 Godby @ Edgewater Carol City @ Chaminade-Madonna American Heritage Plantation @ Trinity Christian 9/20 Northwestern @ Lowndes(GA) Chaminade-Madonna @ Atlantic Carol City @ Trinity Christian 9/27 Plant @ Gonzaga (MD) Glades Central @ Cocoa 10/4 Trinity Christian @ Booker T Washington Mainland @ Cocoa 10/11 Chaminade-Madonna @ Pahokee University @ Columbus 10/18 Cocoa @ Venice Osceola @ Manatee 10/25 Trinity Christian @ Raines Miami Central @ Chaminade-Madonna 11/1 Bolles @ Mainland Columbus @ Atlantic
  14. Who Are These FL Football Legends? Jake Gaither & Willie Galimore

    Jake Gaither was FAMU's head coach from 1945 to 1969. Gaither was credited with inventing Split-T offense and compiled an unbelievable record of 204-36-4. He died in 1994 at the age of 90. "Agile, Mobile and Hostile” is a book about his life. article about Willie Galimore below...one the state's great running backs of the early days https://www.staugustine.com/sports/2014-07-29/remembering-st-augustine-legend-willie-galimore
  15. STA picks up a QB from other side of the state

    This is worthy of national news? I bet the kid is humble, but some adults obviously really wanted the world to know where he is going. Maybe one day we will find out writers like this get bribes from parents for promoting their kids and kickbacks from private schools for giving them free advertising...just like the parents in the news now for bribing people to get their kids into college. We all know there are some unscrupulous parents out there who would probably be willing to pay big bucks to get their kid exposure like this. Am not saying that is the case here.
