2017 Head Coaching Changes

Recommended Posts

Just got an email from Coach Sturdivant and, whew, he advises that Maxpreps inadvertently dropped his name from the team link. He then went on to tell me in detail about his prospects for the team come the season. Thinks this team has a chance to make some real noise in 3A. Says that the old Celtics may be back. Of course, I am hoping for that. :mellow:

Well when you coach you get a coaching card that gets you in games for free..  i.e. I help started the program at Somerset Academy west pines.. Most of our games was on Thursday around 3:30 or 4 or clock... The following year when put us in the old 2A district with pace and Chaminade we had early games still n Thursday games... Theirs time our games would be done by 6:30 and we would be done with the kids by 7:30 and atleast 5 of us coaches would just go to a game... So yes we to advantage of those coaching cards and that's with fri and Saturday games still to come

Yeah cant blame ya...makes sense now. I dont get to use the card much cause we play on fridays but I do use my state series card. That thing is awesome.

Rocco Casullo has stepped down as Mater Academy head coach. Angel Estrada will be the new head coach.


Wow.....Casullo was there 2 years, wasn't Javy Valdez there 2 yeas as well?  

Both coaches were successful in there tenures at Mater.....

I believe Angel Estrada actually was the HC at Mater in 2012 before Valdes got there so it should be a relatively smooth transition.

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
