  1. 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
  2. Found out his dad got a job in Jax. Nothing crazy
  3. Ribault was the same way for years. Middleburg is that way with girls basketball right now.
  4. 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
  5. Yes it is. They do a complete disservice to the kids, I feel so bad for them.
  6. 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)
  7. You are exactly right. They don’t have the talent to win 4-5 games in 8A with the current coaching staff. They’d need a total overhaul with a great coach to do it.
  8. Y’all would’ve made the championship in your rightful class (4A) no doubt in my mind.
  9. First, let me congratulate all of the kids that have earned the opportunity to play in state championship games. I see as much talent as ever in today’s game. And I see a lot of dang good HS football players. However, I am seeing some of the worst football I’ve ever seen here in the state. Teams are making the state championship game that I truly believe 10 years ago would’ve been 2nd round exit type teams. Penalties seem to be at an all time high, tackling an all time low, and a lack of fundamentals from top to bottom. Basic offensive and defensive schemes. And we simply have too many classifications. Am I totally off base or am I onto something? If I’m onto something, what do you think could be done to remedy the situation?
  10. The Bartow over Bolles game is the biggest upset. Bolles was ranked #1 in the country and the injuries they sustained in that game ended up being too much to overcome
  11. He couldn’t cheat and put kids zoned for Lee/Raines/St Aug/etc in apartments or living with coaches.
  12. I said it a couple of weeks ago, that Columbia came off the rails because of coaching. Not just X’s and O’s but being able to maintain control over the team, situational play calling, and an inability to “rally the troops.”

  14. I saw someone on twitter saying that there was a brawl on the TCA sideline...between TCA people.
  15. Massive speed & size advantage for Columbia. Should be a blowout
  16. Just sad. There is no reason for any of this to occur. Young men who had their future ahead wasted over a stupid argument.

  20. It will be a tremendous challenge. I’d have Chaminade as a slight favorite right now

  22. Columbia, All of this IMG stuff doesn’t matter, this is still the worst football I’ve seen in 20+ years. I go to games every Thursday/Friday night and what do I see? The same garbage spread offense. It all looks BAD. QB’s can’t complete simple throws, WR drops left and right, RB fumbles, and the same zone blocking schemes that kids can’t perform. I’m tired of this trying to be like college teams...we don’t have the time to be able to do those things.
