    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from SPCjessica2004 in Can You Name These Schools?   
    ...a little off-season fun here.  A number of FL hs teams have a color in their school or mascot name.  For example, in college we have the Duke Blue Devils and the Bowling Green Falcons.
    Can you think of any such high schools in FL?  There are quite a few.

    I remember that 03 year well.  LOL had quite the season dominating weak Pasco competitiion.  Not sure who they played in the 1st 2 rounds but they won those as well.  Then came the 3rd round.  I was in town (from college) so I went to the game vs Melbourne Palm bay who featured, Joe Cohen  UF, Xavier Carter LSU, Reggie Nelson UF,  Zach Slate ECU and a few others I cannot remember.  They beat LOL in a rare below 40 degree weather game 42-7.  The next week they played Lincoln at home in the state semis rematch from the Fog Bowl from a year ago and won going on to win the state title that year.

    I read somewhere that Brentwood's tuition is 19k per year and they boast of being the top school in Tennessee.  My guess is they have lots of resources for their football team, including a good coaching staff.

    99.8% of teams in Florida would love to be trending downward like St Thomas LOL  As talented as this 5'10" WR may be,  I hardly think losing him is going to hurt STA that badly when looking at the big picture of their program.  Who knows, STA may end up with an "upgrade" for his replacement.

    This is a good question. I don't think the FHSAA gets the money. I believe the school district or in this case the Archdiocese over St. Thomas Aquinas gets to keep the money and put it to use.

    Don’t write these FL teams off just yet. 
    Brentwood Academy plays in a watered down playoff, and was in a dog fight with an average private Texas team two years ago. Barely won 21-14 and was considered national top 50
    UMS won state but it was a small school title, and outside the state top 5, Alabama can be pretty pedestrian. Chaminade was in a dog fight because the coaching is lacking. Western has been trending upwards the last few years. 
    Winter Park has came out of nowhere like Wekiva due to the rise in transfers. If they continues then they could hold their own. 
    Hoover lost a stud to transfer and isn’t the Hoover of old. Cocoa can surprise them for sure. 
    I don’t have high expectations, I just hope to God they can all make it competitive

    Found this little tidbit. 
    Mainland played Seabreeze in 1924 and then both schools consolidated athletic teams and were just simply known as “Daytona Beach”
    in 1942, Seabreeze finally split and formed their own teams. 
    In 1966 Mainland and Seabreeze played the first game against each other since 1924, with Mainland winning 23-6. They have played every year since

    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from SportsNut25 in Arizona Making Big Changes to HS Football Classification & Playoffs   
    The Arizona Interscholastic Association’s Legislative Council recently passed a new reclassification model for football.  The model will use the average weighted maxpreps power rating to determine the conference placement of a football team. The previous three seasons of a team will be used to calculate the power rating.  The new model will begin during the 2020-21 school year. According to the new bylaw, a team can't move up or down more than one conference.  And instead of reclassifying football teams every two years, football teams will be reclassified after each season under the new model.
    Starting next season, eight teams will be pulled from the best of the big-school conferences to play in the first Open Division for the Arizona high school football playoffs.  It will be in the middle of the two-year scheduling block, but, based on criteria such as strength of schedule, at the end of the 2019 regular season, there will be eight teams chosen for the Open Division while each of the big-school conferences (6A, 5A, 4A) will still play a 16-team playoff.  The Open Division tournament champion will be considered the state champion to help cultivate a culture in which schools strive to be part of the Open Division playoffs, AIA Executive Director David Hines said.  Teams would still play in their respective 6A, 5A and 4A conferences during the regular season, before the best eight move onto the Open Division.  The eight teams will pulled out of the best from 6A, 5A and 4A through a computer rankings system. About 10-15 teams would be posted as part of the Open Division by the AIA each week starting Week 5.

    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from ColumbiaHighFan2017class in Rare State Titles Runs Won Completely on the Road   
    How often has a team won a state title having played all of its playoff games on the road?  It is very rare.  Here are a few that did...a truly remarkable accomplishment
    2012-Godby won 4 playoff games on the road and then traveled to Orlando, where they beat Immokalee for the 5A title.  Those four playoff games involved travel to West Florida, Wakulla, Bishop Kenny(Jacksonville) and Robinson(Tampa).
    2009-Glades Day won 3 playoff games on the road and then traveled to Orlando, where they beat Warner Christian for the 1B title.
    2003-Carol City won 4 playoff games on the road and then traveled to Gainesville, where they beat Edgewater for the 6A title.  Outscored opponents 102-13 in those 5 games.
    1976-Panama City Bay won 3 playoff games on the road and then traveled to Ocala, where they beat Delray Beach Atlantic for the 3A title.  Interestingly, they beat Ocala Forest in the state semi in Ocala and then returned to Ocala for the final.  
     
    Several teams won 4 playoff games on the road, but then fell short in the state title game:
    1998-Estero
    1999-Southridge  
    2004-Lake Gibson
    2008-Northwestern
    2009-Deland

    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from ColumbiaHighFan2017class in The Top 25 Large School Programs in the State   
    I used the year 1975 to start counting region titles.  That is when we started talking with some regularity about regions and region titles.  Prior to that, one heard of district titles and sectional titles(state semis). 
    If we wanted to go back to the Stone Ages, Miami High and Coral Gables could make a strong case that they were one of the best 25 large programs in the state.   My version in the original post is really meant to be a more modern-day version of such a list.  As it is, it feels a bit funny listing a program like Merritt Island, whose heyday was so long ago.

    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from SPCjessica2004 in 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.
