A good way to look at South Florida football is to take a look at 6A Dade.  The state champion has either been Armwood, or someone from that district for almost 20 years.  Every team in that district

New to the board! What's up coaches! But I just heard this out of Tallahassee. Yusuf Shakir resigns as Head Football Coach at Lincoln High School.   http://www.wctv.tv/content/news/Shakir-out-as-Lin

Jay Sobke is the new Head Coach at Celebration. He was the interim coach at Harmony last season.

 

J is a good guy.  I worked with him at Lockheed Martin for 2 years and we are good friends now.  I wish him well.  He is a good up and coming coach... I think he can make that program better and maybe move on to a bigger better school eventually.

Hudson High School has pulled it's offer to Will McDonald.The article says he didn't follow up on paperwork. But the AD says they have a candidate in mind already, so it makes me think that they "settled" for McDonald which is terrible. Feel bad for the guy.

.

Not the case on the insurance job, but he indeed took a big job with a big company and it was enough to pull him out of coaching altogether.

another team in a bad spot and having to fill coaching spot in a rush, they might fall apart and appears odds are north marion will be only playoff team from that district bc Eastside lucky to win a game and now belleview might not be in the best spot to repeat playoff appearance from last year

Chris Kokell has stepped down at Olympic Heights. Assistant Baz Alfred will take over:

Good read. Kind of a surprise to me after the OH program was revitalized last year, but I respect Koskell's decision and timing of the resignation. BOL to him and new HC Alfred taking over what should be another sound year for Olympic Heights.

Hope this is for the better we play them for homecoming

The problem with Belleview is that , not only is Brantley the only real HC they have had since the 2004 team, but that 2016 team was Senior laden and is about to graduate. We play them in the first game of the season. So, we will see if they are still as good as last season. I kind of doubt it as they just might revert to their old habits.

    • FSU is baaaaad.    But, good for those Florida boys!
    • I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people who routinely got their butts kicked when they played football. 
    • The running clock does not assure that a team will back off and avoid injuring players on the opposing team. Having officials fail to enforce the play clock during the running clock can add to the frustrations of players that are hoping to get some actual playing time late in the game, especially when it's apparent that the trailing team is making no effort to run plays in the prescribed time. I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people that came up with participation awards to make every kid a "winner". 
    • I suspect the reason why there is a 'running clock' rule now is because too many times, the opposing coaches didn't see eye to eye on how many points were enough (or how many points were too many) - especially in rivalry games, or when the subs should start playing, or when timeouts should be called, or what plays are appropriate to run, etc.   To a certain extent, the running clock rule was implemented to save a coach from his own pride.  Remember a few years back?  In the third quarter, running clock was "optional" for the team that was getting beat.  It wasn't until the 4th quarter that it was mandatory.   But, too many 'old school' coaches felt like agreeing to running clock in the 3rd quarter was a sign of weakness or, as you put it, throwing in the towel.  So they refused to do it.   And the 35 point differential at the beginning of the 3rd quarter turned into a 50+ differential by the time the 3rd quarter ended.  Hurt egos are one thing.  Hurt players are another story.   I'm pretty sure that's why running clock now becomes mandatory at whatever point in the second half the difference becomes 35 or more.   At that point, it's just a matter of getting the game over with a little sooner to protect the players.  Oh, and it's worth noting that not all schools are as deep as others.  Some schools are lucky to have a full squad of second-stringers. 
    • One thing I will say about some of those 8A schools in the Orlando area is that they've either never had success or they have a student population that doesn't value football. Schools that tend to be large with a heavy population of Hispanic students tend to care more about soccer, baseball and basketball than football. It's mainly because their families didn't grow up watching football so it isn't as big of a deal. A great example is Poinciana. They are historically one of the worst football schools around but they won a State Championship in basketball a few years ago. So the athletes are on the campuses for sure. But if the programs have no history of success then the athletes see no reason to play. Another factor is the laid-back transfer rules. Now, kids can essentially consolidate talent on teams. So that also adds to some of these massive blowouts - especially when districts consist of teams like Cypress Creek being made to play teams like Osceola and Lake Nona. Of course they'll get blown out. It's going to be like that for the foreseeable future though.
