    OldSchoolLion reacted to DarterBlue2 in 8A: Apopka 20 v Columbus 21 FINAL   
    Well, an improbable season ended in disappointment last night, as Apopka was done in by: 1. Friday 13 (not really); 2. An average kicking game; 3. A gutsy decision by Columbus to go for two instead of taking the PAT and overtime. 
    While it hurts to lose a game when your opponent's only lead comes with 8.2 seconds left on the clock, putting things into perspective, Apopka had a great season. After losing its best offensive weapon (Davis-Hamilton) early in the 2018 season, the Darter's looked forward to his return for his senior season. But it was not to be as he aggravated his injury in a non-football related accident in the spring (it is really a pity as this kid had a fine college career and perhaps pro, ahead of him). Going into the spring game, the offense was really bad without him, and in four quarters of football the team managed only 2 points on a safety. 
    With the above as the backdrop, I was not expecting much from Apopka this year. And, for the first seven games of the regular season, despite the defense playing stellar football, it seemed likely that Apopka was headed for a first or second round exit in the playoffs as more injuries to offensive players (both skill and linemen) plagued the team. Well, in the second to last game of the regular season against Lake Mary for the district title, a turnaround could be sensed as Apopka won what was expected to be a tight game easily. 
    The turnaround was due to two main factors: 1. Some of the injured players returning to health and the team; 2. Some shifts by the coaching staff moving guys from defense to offensive and finding some diamonds in the rough on the bench. 
    In the end it was not enough for a fourth state title. Still, in perspective, it was a good season for the Darters. 
    Congrats to Columbus on pulling out the win. The two teams were fairly evenly matched, but very different in their strengths and weakness. I feel there will be other Columbus/Apopka finals in the future and I look forward to the chance for redemption.

    That is based off the number of tickets actually sold. Bands, cheerleaders, State Series Passes, all don't count. While I won't don't your opinion, humans have a tendency to over inflate how fast and big something is.
    The good news is:
    2018: CM vs Kings Academy 1722
    2017: CM vs Oxbridge Academy: 1355
    2016: CM vs Trinity Christian (Jax) 2292
    2015: AH-Delray vs Trinity Christian (Jax)  1864
    2014: AH-Delray vs Trinity Christian (Jax)  1752
    2013: Trinity Christian (Jax) vs Clearwater Central Catholic 1982
    2012: University School (Ft.Lauderdale) vs Madison County 2193
    2011: Madison vs AH-Delray 2589

    Average: 1968
    so basically putting the game in Tallahassee this year raised the amount by almost a 1000 people over the average. I think that is great. The FHSAA got a little lucky with a home town Florida High in the game, but hey luck is part of the equation. I expect tonight's game will be overflowing. The only change if I was the FHSAA I would make is that the 2A game should have been on Saturday afternoon instead of Thursday night. I doubt it would have made that much difference in attendance, but if 2A is going to be South Florida teams than a move to Saturday seems prudent.

    It was Godby in 2012....what a depressing loss that was.  Wakulla beat them late in the season and was 11- 0 and ranked number 1 in 5A.  They lost the rematch in the second round 14-7 and Godby went on the win the state championship.  That was one Wakulla let get away...after finishing as runner-up to Norland in 2011 I thought they would get that championship in 2012.  That one still stings...

    Well, in 2005, Tim Tebow was selected both Mr. Football and Mr. Basketball until it was revealed that he didn't actually play basketball and the award was given to Keith Brumbaugh from Deland.  One embarrassed media representatives was overheard saying "Well, I think everyone would agree that had Tebow played basketball, he would have been the best player in the state, and that was good enough for me."

    As we leave Tallahassee, the total number of people who attended is 8,024. 
    That is a higher amount than any of the last 8 years (when 1A-Rural started). I will admit that I am kind of disappointed that 1A didn't break 5K on Saturday night. The only class that did worse than the average is 2A, by about 400, but 1A and 3A beat their averages by 1300 and 900. Overall, it looks like the FHSAA was right to chose Tallahassee if the goal was higher attendance.
