    I could be wrong on that but I thought I remembered seeing him on another team state championship when I did prior research but I can't seem to remember where I would have saw it 
     
     
    I did notice though that many of the panhandle coaches either coached their entire career at one school or they spent their career bouncing around schools in the panhandle
     
    I didn't see many coaches who coached in other parts of the state which I found interesting, I suppose once they moved out there for the job they didn't want to leave that general area and stayed coaching somewhere in the panhandle for the rest of their careers

    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from KeemD321 in Who Are These FL HS Coaching Legends?   
    Al Werneke was the first coach to win multiple state football titles at different schools, repeating at Glades Central High School in Belle Glade in 1971-72 and then again at Titusville High School in 1982-83. He also had one runner-up team at Titusville in 1980, and made six final four appearances. At the time of his death, he was ranked No. 4 on the all-time wins list.

    OldSchoolLion got a reaction from DarterBlue2 in Deerfield Beach Star Killed by Train   
    One paper reported the incident happened at 4AM.
    “He was a little stressed having the weight of the world on his shoulders by going [to a Division I school], and having to leave his two younger brothers and his family in an unstable environment,” Thomas Gowdy said.
    It's an all-too-common theme.  The promise of an NFL career...many of these kids need help/support now.  Regardless of the circumstances of his death, this young man was dealing with a rough time in life that some of us can remember.
    The media speaks of a scholarship like it is winning the lottery.  It is only the beginning of a very rough journey, and what we don't hear about is how many kids don't make it in college.  It's a good time to remember that each of us can make a huge difference in the lives of young men, if we choose.  God bless this child.

    Wouldn't this be a perfect mascot in light of our "elite" and "hot garbage" discussions of late?   It is an actual mascot for a baseball team.  C'mon guys, lighten up, it's almost Christmas.
