  1. 2019 KOC Games

    But you can learn so much more useless information (that will no doubt change over the next two months) and waste so much more time if you just go to MaxPreps and start randomly clicking on various teams and their schedules.
  2. Things that make ya wanna go HMMMMM!

    I don't know yet. If I find out one way or the other, I'll post it here.
  3. Lakeland appears fully reloaded for 2019

    OK, I give up. I was trying to post a screenshot I took last night of a Twitter post from on the Tampa Bay Times sports reporters and I just can't seem to figure out how to do it (file size always too big). In any event, the original tweet came from a 10K.sam and it reads: "Dear Lakeland high school can y'all stop calling my people I am not going to Lakeland i am loyal to my school lake Gibson @LHSDreadnaughts" Interesting.
  4. Lakeland appears fully reloaded for 2019

    The problem is that not every school plays by the same rules, at least not in Hillsborough County. In theory, any family can move into a particular school's district and then be able to attend that school. Also, that same family can stay right where they are and their kid still has the right/ability to attend any other school in the district/county, with one major caveat: the school cannot be at or above capacity. So, a school in a less densely populated part of the County with a mediocre academic reputation/ranking, that is not at capacity, can accommodate an unlimited number of transferring students. Whereas a school in a more populated area with a strong academic reputation/ranking, that has been over capacity for years, can only accommodate a transfer if that kid's family moves into the district. And, of course, private schools can do whatever the heck they want to and, thus, can accommodate any kid they want to whenever they want to regardless of where the family lives. Free agency doesn't work unless all schools are playing on the same, level playing field and that simply isn't the case. My guess is that Lakeland, for example, would see far fewer transfers if kids who want to transfer into Lakeland actually had to move into the Lakeland district. That's not a knock on Lakeland; it's just a reminder that not all public schools are in the same 'boat.' That assumption is based on some quick research that indicates that Lakeland's student population is well below capacity. If I'm wrong on that, please correct me with the right info.
  5. Hillsborough County trivia

    Pinecrest? Won the title in 1969 and then closed three years later.
  6. Hillsborough County trivia

    #3 - Armwood ('03, '04 and '11 with an asterisk), Blake ('69), Jefferson ('10), Jesuit ('68), and Plant ('06, '08, '09, and '11).
  7. What a coincidence that five players would all decide, independently and with no nudging, to transfer to the same high school.
  8. Who Is This FL HS Superstar? Ray Ray McLoud/Sickles

    Ray Ray's younger brother, Jordan, has a chance to earn the starting QB job at USF this year.
  9. Hillsborough County Trivia Question

    Yeah, that was one of the sites I had seen. Perhaps it would have been clearer if I had said that I had not found a 'proprietary website devoted exclusively to the Guy Toph Award' (like, www.guytoph.com).
  10. Brothers Andre and Reche Caldwell. Both played at Jefferson High School in Tampa and both went on the play college football at UF. Obviously, Andre played with Denver (along with a couple other NFL teams) and Reche played for the Patriots (along with a couple of other NFL teams).
  11. Who Is This FL Superstar? Malik Davis/Tampa Jesuit

    In answer to your last question, Davis is playing at the University of Florida, where he hopes to rebound from an early-season, season-ending knee injury.
  12. Dan Burke at Palm Bay Steps Down - Article

  13. Hillsborough County Trivia Question

    One more thing worth noting: I can't find a website devoted to the award, but several sites make mention that the "Guy Toph Award has been presented to senior football players who excel on the field and in the classroom." So, apparently, there is an academic element involved that might cause/prompt some folks to give the nod to one player over another player that seemingly has a tad more talent.
  14. Who Is This Bethune Cookman Legend? Nick Collins/Dixie County

    I think you're thinking of "The Yearling" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.
  15. Who Is This Bethune Cookman Legend? Rashean Mathis/Englewood

    Rashean Mathis. Englewood High School (Jax).
