Absolutely. Would be fun to watch. What I suggested would look like
STA, Venice, Mandarin, Buchholx, Mainland, American Heritage, St. Augustine, Lakeland
Chaminade, Cocoa, Norland, Central, Clearwater Catholic, Hawthorne, Cardinal Newman, Berkley Prep
Just throwing ideas out there. But I do think there is something to an open division.
2 Chaminade-Madonna (Hollywood) 13-0 72.20 26.9
3 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale) 13-1 69.40 36.4
4 Cocoa 13-1 64.60 36.0
5 Norland (Miami) 14-0 63.60 33.3
6 Venice 12-2 58.80 29.4
7 Mandarin (Jacksonville) 11-3 56.30 33.7
8 Buchholz (Gainesville) 13-1 56.30 34.9
9 Central (Miami) 8-4 55.80 43.6
This is the top 8(IMG was 1st)....
according to maxpreps rankings, which is what they will be using
thats 8 loaded teams and 4 or 5 state champs and all 8 could possibly win state titles
Both teams fought like champions last night and always tough when one has to lose. You are spot on about the QB for Mainland as we experienced firsthand what he could do and was certainly the main difference in our loss to them in the regular season. Both teams made some mistakes, missed field goals, and any other excuse one can make with difference being Mainland able to finish the job while St. Augustine did not. Congrats to your Bucs!!
