  1. Oakleaf is the other team in region 1 that should be solid. Lots of talent on that roster
  2. I would say Oakleaf and Sandalwood were the two most talented teams in the area last year and neither could make the playoffs. It’s clearly coaching. Columbia has enough talent on a year in year out basis to compete for a final four appearance, occasionally they have enough to win a state title. Whether they do it or not is up to a couple of factors, one of which is coaching
  3. Sandalwood’s coaching is what holds them back from being a perennial state title contender
  4. No chance of that. They are too far south. I have friends who live 20 minutes south of Bartram Trail and still 20 minutes north of Menendez. However, he will draw kids from St Augustine and Palatka. And if he’s a great coach, that will be enough to compete for a state title.
  5. Has passed. He was 76. Prayers to his family, he was a great coach and builder of men.
  6. Bates didn’t graduate, he went to Oakleaf. But you are correct, they won’t win without those kids. They’ve lost their 5 best returning players
  7. Lee has lost three players to Oakleaf and at least two to the Sandalwood. They will be extremely DOWN.

  9. When I originally heard the school was being built, I thought it was in Windermere. If that would’ve been the case, I think we would have seen them be quite excellent (on the state level) in your country club sports such as swimming, lacrosse, tennis, soccer, etc. Very similar to what Ponte Vedra has done up here in NE Florida
  10. Found out his dad got a job in Jax. Nothing crazy
  11. Ribault was the same way for years. Middleburg is that way with girls basketball right now.
  12. As a coach here’s what I’d be looking for: 1. Supportive administration. Beyond important. Are they willing to hire coaches as teachers? To build good young men, you need to have multiple sets of eyes in the building. Are they going to have your back with parents? Then the general questions like: do I want to live here? Can my wife get a good job here? How is the talent? Etc
  13. Yes it is. They do a complete disservice to the kids, I feel so bad for them.
  14. It is certainly not the number one reason why Gateway schools have had very little success. It has much more to do with a lack of coaching stability (often times due to incompetent administration, for instance the Jackson coach Atwater being fired after greatly improving the team)
