  2. Lakeland Trivia

    To us alums the 2013 24-3 Kathleen loss was really dissapointing - That winning streak of 21 years was really something special...
  3. St Thomas Aquinas Trivia

    St. Thomas? Who?
  4. Lakeland appears fully reloaded for 2019

    I think Bill Castle's worst record on the field was 5-5 in 1981. He has had some wins vacated and that has led to some seasons being lost in the record book seasons but in actual games on the field I think 5-5 was the worst and only once. Lakeland is almost always a regular season power, a playoff contender and most years capable of deep runs and almost every year a shallow run. Few teams wouldn't be happy to have Lakeland's success. Same Coach since 1976 does not equal average coaching ability. Coach Castle received the Lakeland Ledger “Coach of the Year” for 1979, 1982, 1984, 1986, and 2004. The Tampa Tribune honored him with “Coach of the Year” in 1984 and 1986. At the Southeastern Coaches Association meeting in Atlanta, he was given the Kodak 5-A Coach of the Year award for 1986. In 2004 he was named FHSAA 5A coach of the year. He was named Assistant Coach for the Georgia-Florida All Star Football Game that was held in Orlando in June of 1989. He was head coach of the Florida South Team All Stars at the North/South All Star Game held in Jacksonville in June 1997. Castle has been inducted into the Polk County Sports Hall of Fame and the FHSAA Hall of Fame. He was named the FHSAA Coach of the Century, in 2007. First Win – Lake Wales @ Bryant Stadium 10 Sept. 1976 – 26-6 100th Win – Winter Haven @ Winter Haven 16 Sept. 1988 – 25-7 200th Win – Port Charlotte @ Bryant Stadium 20 Nov 1998 – 50-12 300th Win – Okeechobee @ Bryant Stadium 31 Aug. 2007 – 34-14 • 60 Game Win Streak-Started with Tampa Bay Tech @Tampa Bay Tech • Oct. 6, 1995 – 41-7 (State Record) Stopped by Haines City @ Haines City • 2-0 -Regular Season Games; 53 Game Win Streak-Started with Winter Haven Sept.3, 2004@ Bryant Stadium -48-0 (State • Record) • 53rd Win against Ridge Community (2 ot)@ Bryant Stadium Oct. 26, 2007 – 22-19 • Streak stopped by Osceola @ Bryant Stadium Nov. 2, 2007 -25-21, 53 Straight Games
  5. Lakeland appears fully reloaded for 2019

    It is very hard to repeat but look forward to see LHS and what they can do. The Camo Uniforms aren't their only version, Lakeland has a big booster club and has always had multiple jersey/Pant combinations. Only one helmet though. They wore the camo's 2 or 3 times last year. Black over black is still my favorite. But Black over orange, Black over white, Orange over orange, Grey over Grey...
  6. Parrish Community High School starts play 2019

    And unfortunately the over building in Parrish itself. 10,000 new homes approved. Lakewood Ranch kids will be crossing the Manatee River, all the kids in Parrish were zoned for Palmetto High.
  7. Parrish Community High School will begin play in 2019 - the school will begin with a Jr. Varsity schedule (despite what the photo shows) as the school will have only or at least the bulk of 9th and 10th graders. They will primarily be taking students from Palmetto High School as they are the only other HS north of the river in Manatee County. Originally named North River HS .
  8. New football playing schools 2017-2019

    Parrish Community High School will begin play in 2019, however since the school will only really have 9th and 10th graders to start they will be playing a Jr. Varsity Schedule to begin with.

  10. The Very Tip Of the Iceberg

    The current directors of IMG likely knew, that place has terrible leadership in many way.
