College Back Up

College Back Up (16/49)



  1. Wide receiver Jayce Barksdale is transferring from USJ in Tennessee to Venice for his senior season. Looks good on film and seems to be a good blocker. He should fit right in with our offense as Venice will be running the ball more than ever with the return of our entire offensive line, Alvin Johnson and Jamarice Wilder, Ashari Charles, Ryan Matulevich, Adam Paponotanikis, and now impact transfers Jayce Barksdale and Jaden Glasser.
  2. Cocoa's offensive line vs Venice's defensive line will tell the story of that game. As Keem said, Cocoa is returning an extremely veteran offensive line and both of their runningbacks in Malachi Coney and Jaden Brown. They have 3 extremely dangerous receivers in Dayday Farmer, Ryder Varies, and Jayshawn Smith that can take it to the endzone at any moment. Venice is fielding 4 new starters on the defensive line behind edge rushers Elijah Jones and Shamar Littles. With the graduation of Trenton Kintigh and Collin Adkins we will be relying on transfer Ryan Daly from IMG and last years' backup, David Galloway to fill the interior of the D-line. The return of all 3 of our starting linebackers and Deylen Platt is nice. Brycen Fraser will start as the other corner and the Riverview transfer can play at safety or corner. Overall, though, Cocoa should feel good about Venice coming to the Tiger's den so early in the season as that certainly gives them the best chance to defeat them.
  3. Also consider that Venice will be coming off a very tough and physical game against Armwood. It seems that no matter how poorly Armwood is playing, they always find a way to beat Venice. And after playing that game they have to turn around and travel 5 hours to Cocoa on a short week of practice. That intangible factor could easily play into Cocoa's hands.
  4. You are correct, Squitieri did transfer. A stupid move considering how good Manatee is about to be. Elijah Perry will play fine for them.
  5. Thank you. I was not aware that Bergen Catholic was playing CMD. That could definitely be a good ESPN game. Some other sleepers for ESPN include: Aquinas vs Cocoa SFA vs Buford Manatee vs Miami Northwestern is rumored week 1. Haven't heard that anything is official yet, though. Can anyone confirm this? This would be an incredible matchup as Manatee is fielding their best team since 2012.
  6. Bulls had a young team last season. Jamari being hurt and Tyga playing on a sore shoulder really hampered them. I know they're going to miss those guys a lot. Never want to see guys get injured. Lots of great games coming out of SoFlo in 2023 so far! Hope ESPN picks up: Venice @ Northwestern Week 3 Norland @ SJB Week 2 STA vs SJB Week 1 Mater Dei vs Miami Central (Hopefully Week 4,) Bishop Gorman @ CMD Week 5 Any I'm missing? Would all be great moneymakers and awesome for fans.
  7. Any word on the Mater Dei-Central game? Where it will be played, and what week?
  8. Will it be at Manatee or Columbus?
  9. But seriously, one of the best schedules in the state so far. STA, Cocoa, Seminole, and Osceola look like losses. Vero Beach is a tossup. Martin County is deceptively good and nearly won that district last season. Jesuit is hot and cold and could very well be a trap game. Their bye week couldn't come at a better time as they will have two weeks to prepare to win the district after an absolutely brutal first 8 games.
  10. Will they be playing the Kansas City Chiefs for homecoming?
  11. Manatee vs Columbus Week 0 is going to be a very interesting game. Explorer's offensive line vs Manatee's defensive line will tell the story. Don't sleep on the Hurricanes!
  12. I seriously disagree with this assessment. Manatee is bursting at the seams with talent. They are looking forward to one of their best defensive lines in school history with the return of edge rushers Tristan Titus and Max Freeman as well as one of the top DT prospects in the nation in Tyreek Robinson. 2 of their 3 linebackers return in Alex Papale and Dante Mcdowell. Daron Jean returns at safety, and they return all 3 of their starting cornerbacks in Omari Evans, Rashid Phillips, and Christian Johnson. That's 9 of their 11 defensive starters back in the lineup. Offensively, 3 of their linemen return and they have 2 dangerous receivers in Keyvon Reddick and Ramsey Cole. Tyron Jackson returns at runningback, and it appears that Manatee's coaching staff is going to give Elijah Perry the opportunity to run their offense. That's 7 offensive players returning from last season. The Canes have a very veteran squad returning in 2023. They think they can beat Venice and make the final four. You will see how good Manatee is when the season starts in August. They're going to shock a lot of people.
  13. I've heard Manatee has scheduled Miami Northwestern week 1. Does anyone on here have any insight on this? Manatee is fielding their best team in a decade and will likely meet Venice in the regional finals for a shot at the final four. This would be a thrilling game.
