Here's my stab at it.  

  1. Miami-Dade 
  2. Broward 
  3. Orange 
  4. Seminole
  5. Duval
  6. Palm Beach
  7. Hillsborough
  8. Pinellas

I think 3 through 7 can be reordered in any order and you could make a decent case.  Pinellas is such a distant last place it's not even funny.  Any of their teams struggle to get out of round one and I believe the problem is mostly too many schools within proximity of each other that spread the talent out too thinly?

Honestly I would flip Duval and Hillsborough

 

Going into the season Duval doesn't have much after TCA and Bolles which Hillsborough has a lean IMO with Jesuit and Tampa Bay Tech and probably more depth than Duval who's next best team is probably gonna be Ed White who's maybe high end a borderline top 50 team but more than likely could finish 75-100 range statewide 

 

At best Duval has 3 top 100 teams in FL which will take them to the lower end

It's why counties up here like Leon (Tallahassee) and Alachua (Gainesville) won't win state titles in the larger classifications anymore

 

Talent is too spread out and unless all the top talent goes to one school the county couldn't keep up with the larger metros in the current climate 

 

They may compete in this suburban/metro thing but they were never gonna compete with Dade or Broward teams especially when even elite teams from the counties on the list you stated could rarely compete either

TWEEEEEEET!    (Throwing the yellow flag down to the ground)

"We've got a dead ball personal foul against FBGUY for taunting ColumbiaFan with a Robert E. Lee reference.    15 yards; and loss of down."

Actually no I didn't

 

Both have lost a lot of talent, Riverside graduated their best player, both QBs, best offensive weapon, several big time starting defensive players 

 

Oh and their coach left and they proceeded to lose several more players to Ed White

 

Raines also has lost a few players and even lost a kid to Ribault last week 

 

That's the common mistake on this board, nobody is actually following the reality or the player movement of the off-season than think they know the teams in my backyard better than me

What I enjoy is that we set their demise in motion 

 

Their fans started putting heat on the coach after the district championship loss to Columbia and by taking a district title we sent their last great team ever on the I10 road of death to get smashed by pine Forest 

 

Now they are about to be back to being Ed White whipping boy while Columbia will be taking the annual trip to the playoffs

 

That's karma
