Realignment

Recommended Posts

My major issue when individuals talk about changing the scheduling and doing away with districts is that the problem is bigger than scheduling. If you are in Trinity Christian's (Jacksonville) district, you are playing for runner-up spot. If you are a small school who is not a D-1 factory, but still believes in football, then you risk your players being hurt, so as a result you might go independent, or might go to 6 or 7 man football. I get it. This is what happens now that 80+ schools have gone independent. Similarly, if you are in St. Thomas Acquinas or Manatee or Lakeland's district, you might feel the same way. As a result, a scheduling system that offers never to have play them in the regular season (despite the fact that you might have to play them in the playoffs) sounds like a great idea. But you even then you aren't competing on a level playing field.

 

Part of why the FHSAA (and all HS Associations) have classifications is to try and level the playing field. Nobody believes that a 1A team (Rural, 600 or less) is going to regularly beat an 8A team. As a result, we divide schools into classifications based on population. This unfortunately fails to realizes that some teams are just good. They have a strong feeder system, their principal and community support football. They have tradition. Whatever the reason, certain schools continually do well in their classification. They outpunch their population numbers.

 

So before we change scheduling, what we need to do is realign based on two things:
1) Population

2) Playoff Success (or lack thereof)

 

First, I started with the 2015 student population of all 437 teams in 2A through 8A that currently are playing in districts.

Second, I looked at the last 10 seasons (2006-2015) and looked at their success and failure in terms of reaching the playoffs and then how far did you go in the playoffs.

Third, I added 75 students for each round you made it in the playoffs. So a team that lost in the first round, added 75. A team that lost in the 5th round, I added 375.

Fourth, I subtract 75 students for year you did not make the playoffs.

Fifth, I weighted those years. 2015 received the full weight, while 2014 received 90%, etc until 2006 which only received 10% of the weight. The idea being that success and failure make a difference but success or failure from 10 years ago has only a small impact compared to more recent success.

 

So for example:

Gainesville
2015: 1897 student population

2015 season: +225 x 1.00 = 225

2014 season: +225 x 0.90 = 202.5

2013 season: +150 x 0.80 = 120

2012 season: +375 x 0.70 = 262.5

2011 season: +225 x 0.60 = 135

2010 season: +300 x 0.50 = 150

2009 season: +150 x 0.40 = 60

2008 season: -75 x 0.30 = -22.5

2007 season: -75 x 0.20 = -15

2006 season: -75 x 0.10 = -7.5

 

For a new total population of 3007

 

Forest Hill (West Palm Beach)

2015: 2316 student population

2015 season: -75 x 1.00 = -75

2014 season: -75 x 0.90 = -67.5

2013 season: -75 x 0.80 = -60

2012 season: -75 x 0.70 = -52.5

2011 season: -75 x 0.60 = -45

2010 season: -75 x 0.50 = -37.5

2009 season: -75 x 0.40 = -30

2008 season: -75 x 0.30 = -22.5

2007 season: -75 x 0.20 = -15

2006 season: -75 x 0.10 = -7.5

 

For a new total population of 1903

 

Now for smaller schools, I did an additional weighting. If you were in 2A, I only counted 20% of the change in students, for 3A I counted 40%, and for 4A, I counted 50%. 5A and above I counted the full weight of the change. Rural Schools (1A) remained unchanged.

I also did another step, where I skipped the above step and used the full weight of the changes. (I found the results were overall better when I used the full weight of the changes).

 

Finally, I used Google Maps to put the teams into classifications and districts.
 

Weighting of 2A, 3A, 4A.
Class 2A

Class 3A

Class 4A

Class 5A

Class 6A

Class 7A

Class 8A

 

No Weighting of 2A, 3A, 4A

Class 2A

Class 3A

Now to be honest creating districts is harder than you think especially when it comes to the Panhandle and North Central Florida area. I tried to limit the # of 3 team districts, but honestly it is darn near impossible (another reason why mathematically it makes no sense to have 8 classes if the goal is large enough districts). Every time you add a district to one area that moves the district, which moves another district and you end up one district short. 
 
Now, I didn't add the independent schools. But I will do their numbers once I get some time. I think many of those independents would enjoy the idea of knowing that some of the "elite" small schools are pushed up a classification or two or more.


The final thing that needs to happen after reclassification is a system of promotion and relegation. While my system reclassifies teams based on past success and population, teams that perform well should move. Teams that fail to perform should move down. In my reclassification system, Forest Hill moved from 7A (currently) to 6A (reclassified). If they fail to perform at 6A, move them down again. Additionally, a school like Booker T Washington went from 4A to 6A/7A (depends on the weighting). If they success, then move them again.

Two things that I see wrong with Region 4. 

 

One, why is District 7 extending from the Palm Beaches to Lake Placid? Gotta fix that. 

 

Second, and probably the bigger of the problems - why in the heck is Oxbridge in 2A? Put them in 2A and I guarantee you more teams going to be dropping from FHSAA status and just going to independent ball.

Gatorman,

 

You put some serious thought in to this and I commend you for it. However, there is a few flaws like SportsNut pointed out. I think that could be worked through, potentially.

 

My question have you shown any of this to Frank Beasley? Now of course remember he can't make the final say on this as Justin Harrison is his boss and he would have to present a policy change to the board. Something that will have to go through the channels necessary to make things happen.

 

I agree that we may need to do that and weigh playoff success, but how much you do keep weighing before you have a potential issue? Like Oxbridge for example. They don't have the success like everyone does as of yet with just one year in. However, the notion is no 2A small schools going to play them. Every single school you just listed except St. John Paul II and possibly John Carroll would even think to play Oxbridge. Talk about teams running for the hills. So again its a good idea, but the flaws have to be worked out somewhere so we don't have more teams flocking to independent.

Yeah, I saw that for Oxbridge as I was doing it. That is a reflection of Oxbridge having negatives from 2014-2006 in the above formula. This means they have negatives for 9 of the 10 years. 2015 is the first they have even been in District Play. If I only count 2015 for them then they would be a solid 3A school (weighted population wise) and as they have continued success they would move up. I did it for the sake of things being easier (many schools have never been in the playoffs and it was hard to figure out when they started). To make it easy on myself, I just assumed that every school had played football for 10 years and as a result if they weren't in the playoffs, they had a negative 10.

 

As for Lake Placid and Moore Haven, they are victims of not being surrounded by schools of similar size.

Lake Placid to St. John Paul II (2h15m)
Lake Placid to Village Academy (2h 8m)
Lake Placid to Oxbridge (1h 51m)

Lake Placid to John Carroll (1h 24m)

Lake Placid to Moore Haven (0h 43m)
Total Driving Time: 8 h 21 m

Average Driving Time: 1 h 40 m

 

Lake Placid to Community School of Naples (1h 44m)
Lake Placid to Evangelical Christian School (1h 24m)
Lake Placid to Gateway Charter High School (1h 30m)
Lake Placid to Marco Island Academy (2h 13m)
Lake Placid to Southwest Fl Christian Academy (1h 24m)
Lake Placid to St John Neumann Catholic High School (1h 45m)
Total Driving Time 10 h 00 m
Average Driving Time: 1 h 40 m
 
Going North or West is more distance than the examples above.
2 possible solutions would be to move Lake Placid up (They were the largest 2A).
They then could be in Class 3A, District 6 and they would be with:
Bishop Verot Catholic High School
Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School
First Baptist Academy
Labelle High School

 

Move Oxbridge Academy to 3A, move Village Academy and St. John Paul II to District 8 and then create a 3 team district of Moore Haven, Lake Placid, and John Carroll. That creates a district imbalance which I tried hard to avoid. Only a couple of time did I end up with a 3 team district.

Part of what I was trying to do was trying to avoid making any exceptions, which is why I found the not weighting 2A, 3A, 4A to be more successful.

 

After I re-ranked schools by population, I did 40 schools 2A-4A, and even division of the remaining schools 5A-8A.

I would note that I don't think this is the end all be all. I just think it is a good starting spot. 

 

Minus the Oxbridge issue in 2A, I think if you went to the Independent schools and said, "what do you think of this?" Many might be on board. 

 

Small dominant schools might be upset (BTW, Bolles, Trinity Christian (Jax), University Christian (Jax),) as they would be playing well above their population numbers. At the same time, you are playing competition similar to your own ability.

 

If redistricting happens every two years, you can require teams that are state champions to move up, no matter their weighted population. Schools that miss the playoffs for 6 straight years, automatically move down a class from the previous year.

One of the things I hate is when people use enrollments in terms of classifications and I hate that. Booker T. Washington on any given day can beat the breaks off of anybody with an enrollment of 1000 I'd say. John A. Ferguson is pushing 4200 hundred and they barely win games.

I think the Independents would surely be on board but will the current 2A programs be okay playing teams like...

 

2015 Enrollement Numbers of a few Independent schools:

 

North Broward Prep with an enrollment of 897 = should be 4A

 

Coral Springs Charter with an enrollment of 932 = should be 4A 

 

Archbishop McCarthy with an enrollment of 1536 = should be 5A

 

Key West with an enrollment of 1188 = should be 5A

 

 

 

I used those teams because I believe they would be 2A Playoff teams consistently and eventually some of the current 2A schools might call it out.

 

 Then of course you could have legitimate 3A programs asking if Independents with 4A and 5A enrollments are allowed to switch to 2A , why can't we?

I think a better idea is go back five years as almost every school playing football has played for at least five years minus a few. Why? Lake Minneola was the last public high school to open in 2011. That will change in 2017 when the new West Orange reliever high school in Windermere is suppose to open. I also believe a new high school in Pasco County is suppose to open in 2017 as well. So we got all that going here at this point. Even another high school down in Bonita Springs is suppose to be coming. We are about to trend back to having new high schools open yearly, so we got to keep this in mind.

 

It is not hard to tell when a school has added football. The assignment lists going back to at least 2001 are available on the FHSAA, but I would go five years if you are wanting to show this to the right people. However, I am not sure this would be something the FHSAA would ever consider using when their is easier alternatives to get elite teams bumped up the scale.

Broward

Part of this is not just based on enrollment numbers but success as well.

North Broward Prep would be 3A (under my weighted enrollment)

Coral Springs Charter would be 3A (under my weighted enrollment)

Archbishop McCarthy would be 5A (under my weighted enrollment).

Key West would be a 3A (under my weighted enrollment).

 

I am not suggesting that all independents should be 2A, but many of them would be.

 

Of course, as more teams join we can either increase the size of 2A (I set it at 40 teams for 2A-4A) or just let them flow into the area they are in.

The reality is that most of the teams that independents already fall into the 2A category. 44 of the 80 of them are under 300 students (not including Florida Deaf and Blind School). Another 20 fall in the current 300-680 range (3A) not including IMG Academy and Wildwood (1A).

If I only used the current cutoff (weighted population of 413) 65 teams (not including IMG, Wildwood, Florida Dead and Blind)

 

 

Basically almost all of the current schools that are independent would fall in 3A or 2A except for Coral Glades (Coral Springs), Archbishop McCarthy (Southwest Ranches), Pembroke Pines Charter.

Coral Glades would be 8A under current FHSAA guidelines and under my weighted population they would be a really big 6A.

Archbishop McCarthy would be would be a really small 6A under current FHSAA guidelines and under my weighted population they would be 5A.

Pembroke Pines Charter would be a 6A under current FHSAA guidelines and a 5A under my weighted population.

They should do it off roster size not school enrollment

I don't think you could do it off roster size. That number is too easy to manipulate. Plus every school is a little different. There are some schools that make cuts, or limit their roster sizes, while others allow anyone who wants to be on the team to play.

When I originally did it, I only gave positive points for 2014 and 2015 and subtracted 50 population for every consecutive year you didn't make the playoffs. The end result didn't look right because a team could make the playoffs once in 10 years and somehow not lose population despite a complete lack of success. Additionally, you had teams like  Paxton, and Stanton who ended up being in 2A despite their 1500 person population.

 

5 years might be ok.

My concern with only 5 years is that you will never lose enough population to make it down a classification (especially our large 8A) additionally, going only 5 years is going to limit the number of classifications that a team can move up. For example Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) would only move up to 5A instead of 6A (with 10 years of data).

Part of the idea of 75 students (addition and subtraction) was that when weighted by year that you would lose about 400 students if you hadn't been in the playoffs for 10 years which basically meant that you go down a classification due to the range of populations that the FHSAA set. In order to only do 5 years, I would have to increase the number to 100 students for that to happen.

 

So based on the idea of 5 years of data instead of 10 and 100 students gained or loss plus a weighting of 100% for 2015, 90% for 2014, 80% for 2013, 70 for 2012, 60% for 2011

I don't mean to be negative, but some of these districts don't make that much sense. For example. Flanagan, Hialeah, Gardens, Krop & Miramar. Don't understand that one. Why would west broward be in a district with North Miami & Mater. Northwestern & Carol City with Goleman, and Westland Hialeah. There is no hype around any of those districts that i browsed on there.

As far as this point system is concerned. It's brings a good/bad effect. Good is that teams will make able to schedule their own games, and format around their flexible dates for the season, and allow for teams that wouldn't get in in this current system to be in for this format. The bad is that the rivalry effect will be lost more than gained. Some of you are thinking rivalries will be increased, but i don't think so. The juggernaut programs are gonna continue to get national games into their schedule which brings a issue to teams in their district, and the South (Meaning Dade & Broward) are still favored to win more than half of the state titles come late in the playoffs.
