The real question that everyone raises, but never answers, is where we should draw the line in the sand between “RECRUITING” and “ATTRACTION.” 

Simple 

 

If a coach, parent, player or administrator reaches out to a player and tries to get them to leave their current school to come play at their school

Serious question:  if a kid doesn't post something on social media and there's no media person snooping around asking questions, how does anyone know that a kid has transferred over the summer until the fall pre-season practice starts or someone updates the roster on MaxPreps?  

If a kid doesn't post something, are they trying to hide it?   Personally, I'd give more kudos to a kid for not posting something than putting up a "taking my talents to" post in which he thanks everybody at his old school for everything they've done for him and tells them all how much he loves them and then turns around and says "but that said, I'm now transferring." 

And lord knows there are very few newspapers or tv stations that cover high school football, especially in the off-season, so I don't find it the least bit odd that a transfer doesn't make the news.   Nor do I think anyone is hiding anything. 

Have to agree with that from what happens in our area.  Almost any transfer we get seldom posts it on twitter, IG, FB or other social media they just come.  We don't try to hide it as the school losing the player knows and is most likely disappointed especially if he has made an impact at his old school already.  But we are also not out there letting everyone know we got this guy, we got that guy as if that is going to make or break your season because it sometimes makes little difference.  I am also a great believer that "Quality" Trumps "Quantity".   When you already run a good program getting 3 or 4 impact players can make more of a difference than 10-12 that are at the level you already have.

247 Sports has Gage as a 4-star guy.  They also rank him the number 2 RB in the country for the 2024 class. 

Wharton also attracted QB Jackson Jenson, who transferred in over the summer from Carrollwood Day School after spending a little time on the Bloomingdale roster this spring.   He's listed at 6'3", 190 and started at CDS as a sophomore.   Based on his size, if things don't work out for him at Wharton, it wouldn't surprise me if he somehow ends up at Venice for his senior year.  B)

Wharton went 9-3 last year, losing to Tampa Bay Tech in the regional finals.   But they return quite a few players in addition to the QB and the RB that just transferred in.  This year, Wharton is in a very strong 4-team district (3M/region 1) along with Armwood and TBT (the 4th team is Freedom and it's going to be a very long season for them).  Throw Orlando Jones into that region and the region 1 winner will be battle-tested going into the final four that likely will feature Tampa Jesuit (R2), the region 4 winner and the Dillard/STA winner (R3).  That's going to be one helluva final four.

I saw the QB transfer earlier on, makes me wonder how many other transfers have happened that we didn't know about in the Tampa area

Wonder if Gage's motivation to transfer was Jerrick Gibson who is the #1 rate RB in the 2024 class and he is at IMG?  Most things just don't happen in a vacuum.  But I agree, it is a huge get for Wharton.

I kind of doubt it, Ray. Gage played seasons with IMG when one of the top running backs in the nation Kaytron Allen was there. Gage got a lot of playing time and was in a lot of plays with Allen. Could be financial problems or maybe he just didn't care for the coaching method at IMG.

It was a simple question, not a conclusion.  So let me reframe it.   While Gage was an underclassman was getting "A Lot" of playing time okay behind Allen and now as an upperclassman is that sufficient if he wanted to be the "MAN"??

Could be but I would think that Gage still was the starter at IMG ahead of this newcomer for the coming season. ;)

    • Sorry thought I answered earlier today. Yes, these are annual numbers that coaches receive. The local teachers' union and local school district negotiate for supplements for after school activities. So FFA, Chorus, Band, Student Council, Yearbook, all might receive supplements depending on previous negotiations. Most coaches are also receiving their teachers' salary as well. So if a brand new teacher with zero experience in the classroom comes into Manatee County and starts earning $48,586 and becomes the head football coach, they then will receive $5,049 on top of the salary, which is the entire fiscal year. The supplement is only for their after contract hour work. Many coaches work with their districts/principals to have an easier teaching load and additional pay as well. Many head football coaches only teach 2-4 classes, instead of a full load of classes of 5-7. Usually these classes are weightlifting/football classes with only football players or predominantly football players. Many head football coaches will also get a stipend for being the weightlifting coach (if the school district sponsors the sport). Many head football coaches will get paid for summer workouts for having the weight room open for a specific number of hours. These are additional perks/benefits that are not available to the average teacher.  
    • I wish more teams that have no shot at a state title would join this league. That way they can consolidate classes. There are about 100 teams that would fare better in a league like this 
    • The supplements are annual, usually paid out over the course of the season. So coaches don’t typically get paid anything from like December - September (at least near where I live). Assistant coaches get roughly $2000 for all their work, which is even more pathetic   
    • OK, so long has it been like this?  Was there ever a time when high school football was a local grassroots game?
    • I thought those were monthly supplements to their teachers pay, not annual?  I mean some would make only $300 extra a month for all the time and energy it takes to coach football as a year round program.
