August 14 Palm Beach Central w 41-0 August 21 Booker T Washington w 28-14 (brooks just transferred to IMG) so he still will face our secondary next week). August 28 @ IMG Academy L 21-24 August 28 @ #4 nationally ranked St. John Bosco L 36-38 (Max prep has MNW playing IMG and SJB on the 28th either way both squads will face the Bulls while SJB will face Central on the 21st of August one week before facing NW according to Max Preps September 4th Chiminade-Madonna W 38-10 (Hi T. Lewis don’t see what was the benefit of you transferring to Madonna for your SENIOR year should’ve remained a Bull). October 4 Edison W 35-0 Killian W 38-14 Key West W 48-10 Miami Springs W 54-3 Jackson W 41-10 Another (8-2) (4-0) Regular Season (13-2) (4-0) overall because I do see the Miami Northwestern Bulls 4peat with it all coming down to a Round 3 rematch with American Heritage being the only team in the way. No Carol City or Central on schedule is shocking I’d rather we get rid of IMG. I’m sick of them. Would’ve love to see St.Thomas Aquinas on schedule or in place of IMG.. Post your team and your 2020 predictions If you know who your team will be facing in 2020 or comment on mines if you will like instead... Let’s keep it fun guy’s and REMEMBER nothing is truly FINAL thx to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Hell some Counties are thinking about starting in the winter smh...
Hello, Thank you for accepting my registration to join this forum board. As my username suggests, I will be posting old newspaper articles, yearbooks, and pictures of High School Football teams from the Florida Heartland area. For my first post I will be sharing something I found in an old local newspaper, The Champion. The Champion was a local newspaper in DeSoto County from 1895-1911. Archives of this newspaper can be found on newspapers.com and online at the Library of Congress, but it only last from 1906-1908. In the Thursday, July 23, 1908 edition of The Champion I found a mention about an upcoming Football game to be played at the Arcadia Baseball Park between Arcadia and Bartow on Saturday, July 25, 1908 at 3:30 in the afternoon. However, when looking through later newspapers I can not find a score for this game. Arcadia is today known as the DeSoto County Bulldogs. This 1908 mention is the earliest known mention of an Arcadia Football team. This makes DeSoto County one of the oldest High School Football teams in Florida still currently playing. Bartow, along with Lakeland had their first teams in 1907. Arcadia's biggest rival Wauchula (today known as the Hardee Wildcats) had their first team in 1909. Another Heartland team, Fort Meade I have their first Football team as 1912. When I have more time, I will be leaving some more info I have on here. Best Regards, The Heartland Archives
