    Correct. Player to player but also “coach to neighborhood to player” a lot of ways to INITIATE transfers. There’s some on here that love these super teams. I think it’s ruined HSFB. 80% (if not higher) of teams in the state will have no chance of winning a state championship.

    KOC, first game to start the season, or scrimmage….Both teams will leave it all in the field. Both teams will be 0-0 after this game but don’t think for a second it won’t influence the national polls!!!!

    I'm pretty sure the Armwood-Norland game is a kickoff classic. But, I'm also pretty sure both teams will be playing their best to win. Hopefully the Section 104 boys can give us a stream!

    No Booker T?
    I think a season where Armwood goes unbeaten with most or all games being blowouts is going to be interesting. Their taking of most of Sumner's best players appears to be completely overlooked by most. I don't think people realize this may be the best Armwood team ever, based on raw talent. I just think folks who have no clue about the 2024 team will dismiss that claim out of hand.

    I think it'll be an ugly defensive struggle with a few big plays in between. No way to predict for sure until we see the actual rosters come August. I hear Lakeland will have many more transfers (central likely as well), but I can't know for sure. Some of the kids themselves may not even know!

    It certainly figures to be an exciting year for our team! They should be strong as they head to Traz Powell to take on the Rockets, likely on ESPN.

    Agree. I’m in contact for years with a diehard Armwood fan & this year is their best team in quite awhile, if ever! Nice opener VS Norland will be a good one.

    As you probably know, the rest of the state views Dade/Broward as a scary sort of foreign land (and those in Dade/Broward view the rest of the state as a scary sort of country bumpkin place). Most in Gainesville threw up their hands and quit bothering to get involved in Dade/Broward years ago. Public schools in the rest of the state are held to a different standard by many. Though there's no way to be sure how many transfers schools end up with until the school year literally starts.

    As far as the rules and culture go, public schools now have an advantage over private schools in attracting players. Of course, the biggest, best private schools still have an overall advantage when you factor in the wealth of the student body/alumni. And those located right in the middle of dense urban areas have many more players to pick from within a reasonable driving distance.
    It looks like Venice was pissed to lose their starting RB. So, they turned in Booker. The player in question appeared headed to Lakeland for a time after leaving Booker. But, perhaps had a change of heart and felt the hassle wasn't worth it.

    I said this years ago and I'll say it again.  NO EXCUSE!!!  The FHSAA could've contracted this out.  Hell, they could've given a UF CompSci student an internship/co-op to create a simple database already linked to the FHSAA portal in which schools can enter and confirm schedules, FOR ALL SPORTS.  
    All schools reside in a database and can be parsed by year, then sport (ie, football, boys basketball, girls basketball, etc). If school A is going to play school C, school A enters their information and school C does the same.  If the information doesn't match in the system (non matching opponents, dates, time, home/away or whatever), that game is flagged for correction.  Compliance is not optional.  This is freshman year "intro to programming" and I know because I did this stuff back in 1994.  It pisses me off the the nth degree that such a talent rich State of Florida has such mediocre resources.  There's no reason why we have to wait on an external resource (MaxPreps) to post inaccurate and incomplete information.  There's no reason that this site (Thank you for everything @Joshua Wilson), @nolebull813, @THIS_IS_DILLARD or anyone else should have to look under rocks to find complete schedules.
    How does the FHSAA course correct?

    Something to most definitely think about. It’s just insane to me that in 2024 3-4 weeks b4 kick off , every high school complete schedule isn’t posted.
    What’s even crazier is that most head coaches/ AD’s already know and have the full schedule. For some reason in Florida they just wait the last minute to post. 
     
    unless you’re STA, Chaminade or American heritage.

    I have been thinking about this last post and want to offer a different slant.  For background, remember that the FHSAA had a 5-year agreement with MaxPreps from 2018-2022 which paid the FHSAA $85,000 annually to allow MaxPreps to serve as the exclusive provider for scores and statistics to the FHSAA.  I assume this contract has been renewed, and I'm guessing the details are hidden somewhere in the FHSAA financial archives, but I have been unable to unearth it at this time.  My point is MaxPreps could very well be paying the FHSAA to serve as its official platform, and not vice versa.  Why would MaxPreps do that? to drive online visits to its website and social media platforms, in order to sell more goods and services via its advertisers, and the advertising income that follows from that.  They also need the FHSAA to mandate that all scores be entered into MaxPreps, so its proprietary algorithm can be more "accurate".  I would consider this possible scenario when we are speculating on the motives of the FHSAA and MaxPreps.  Just my two cents.

    Schools are struggling to fill their schedules ahead of the end of the school year. Then summer break hits and folks are away, not updating documents etc.
    The always changing structure of playoff systems also means schools constantly have to reconsider how/who to schedule. Long-term alliances in scheduling aren't tenable, so each cycle amounts to almost starting from scratch.
    I imagine there's a deadline sometime in late July or early August where everything has to be in. But, before then, there is no incentive to update maxpreps until summer break is over.

    Facts. But to my understanding you can access maxpreps from home to make or add changes from home. 
     
    why is that a state like GA can have each team entire accurate schedule ready to go all ready to go at the same time , months b4 kick off. But with Florida you dam near don’t know anything for sure until sometimes the week of kickoffs. 
     
    which leaves no room for alum to put in adequate time off request to attend certain games such as homecoming , a huge rival bowl game. Especially if they’re no longer local and live out of state.

    To answer the original question, each school should have a Coach Admin account on the MaxPreps website where the coach/AD/assistant coach or whoever can enter the team's schedule.  MaxPreps also says you can email your schedule and they will enter it for you.  So it appears the onus is on the school itself to submit its schedule to MaxPreps, and there are reasons that may not happen promptly, as has been pointed out.  Other errors I have seen are confusing Booker T. Washington in Miami with Booker T. Washington in Pensacola, and Pace with Monsignor Pace, etc.  I saw one score that was reported as 61-0, when in fact it was 29-0, and was never corrected during the year.  Although things tend to get smoothed out with the schedule entry, there is still room for administrative errors, and we are basing the playoff structure on this system?  Sheesh!
