Sometimes there are issues with the broadcast and you’ll get an error code that says “cannot broadcast at this time,” or something like that. I’ve had to call the NFHS site to get my money back a few times.

Personally schools should stop scheduling IMG Academy 

Maybe but it should always be up the each individual school who they play 

 

Last thing we need is the FHSAA copying California and blocking certain teams Especially when a lot of teams specifically in North Florida are cowards who won't play good teams when one comes calling

Cocoa beats Merritt Island 36 -0 in a half of play. Game got called before the second half started. 

Palm Bay scrapes by Satellite 21-7. Palm Bay scoring last with 3 seconds left after Satellite tried a fake punt with 4mins left at their own 30. 

Rockledge loses to Treasure Coast 16 to 14.

Eau Gallie beats Viera and controlled the game.

Bayside beats Seabreeze yesterday 28-14. 

Speaking of Seabreeze, their starting and 2nd string QBs both played tonight against each other for Merritt Island and Cocoa.

Honestly this isn't really an upset, I know people are super high on Rockledge but Treasure Coast is the better team 

 

I do think it's a good sign for Rockledge they were able to compete with them though

No doubt. I knew they lost two Rbs, but then I watched film of the 2024 kid that replaced them. That was when I knew that those guys left because they were soon to become backups. Venice knows now too. IMG would handle Lakeland most likely as well. Would have to be a Bill Castle special with ball control eating the clock etc to have a chance.

Lakeland would have put up a much better fight than Venice did.

Well, I commend your admission to the REALITY of some programs.   Top programs attract top players, that is understood by all.  We just recently got a top running back from a neighboring HS, although we don't NEED him as we got excellent RB's already.  My example, you needed a QB then went and got one.  Prior to that happening, that kid had approached our staff about coming to our school as he had been playing with most of our kids in the 7v7 team for the past 5 years or so.  I have a theory of why he made the switch and went there, but it is just that.  A theory by a keen observer, not an undisputable fact. 

Players make moves for lots of reasons. I don't know anything about him. Obviously, players "shop around". It's a wild time.

Lakeland wouldn't be able to get much done on offense, save for grinding out some first downs and chewing clock. Maybe Tyler Williams or Money would make a big play or two. But, I think Lakeland's defense, if they shortened the rotation and stuck with their best 11-14 players, could hang in vs. the IMG offense. Overall, IMG is a different animal and regular HS teams shouldn't be compared to them.

Venice needs Kintigh back. Even with him, a 4-win season seems likely. The schedule is just too insane.

I think Venice can win 6 or 7 games with a push. Naples, Riverview, Sarasota, Palmetto, IMG varsity, and Clearwater all should be wins. Miami Northwestern, CMD, and Seminole are the toss-ups with SFA as an almost certain loss.

My guess was based on thinking one loss will come to either Naples or Riverview, but I suppose that may not happen. Flying blind on CAI, but as I've said before my prediction is they will be a beast, beat Venice and have a shot at Lakeland.

Strange, you seem to know alot about everyone and everything else Lakeland but not the QB.  Sure!!  This difference of opinion will not be decided by you or I but others who may have an interest in this topic.

Looks like our opponent for next week, Treasure Coast rode into Rockledge last night and emerged with a victory (albeit a last second FG off a TO).  Wondering if Keem watched this game and if so what his takeaway is as both are forecast to be extremely good teams. 

Honestly it was sloppy game but a dogfight. Tied at 7 at the half and Rockledge led 14 to 13 in the 4th. Lots of penalties. Rockledge defense is pretty solid. You can catch the replay of the game on space Coast daily website or their Facebook to get a better grasp. I watched the latter part of the game due to watching the Cocoa v Merritt Island game and some of the Viera v Eau Gallie and Satellite v Palm Bay game.

It was a sloppy game by both and Treasure Coast won on a last minute field goal. 

To me the biggest game that showed alot in Brevard was the Satellite v Palm Bay game.

Thanks, will probably try to watch after the Jones v MNW game tonight or catch it tomorrow.  Both Rockledge and TC are on our schedule this year so get double the bang for your buck.  :lol:

A lot of the top Central Florida teams have similar opponents.

I don't know anything about any of the players personally, nor do I wish to know. Sometimes things show up on Twitter. That's it.

I remember the topic of traveling large distances for K.O. classics coming up a few days ago. It's just a bad idea to even try to play games in Florida (especially away from the coasts) around 7-8pm this time of year there. Lightning delays are virtually guaranteed. I feel bad for MNW and their fans. That's a long way to travel for a game that should've been obvious was going to be extremely difficult to play.

Are you the same guy that accused Columbia of always wanting to get the last word? Thought so.  I am not accusing Lakeland of recruiting this particular player, just reflecting on you bragging over a month ago, so sorry I met gloating that Lakeland "Out Recruited" Lake Gibson for this particular kid.  Now you want us to believe he was just "Shopping Around".   Got It.

IMG and a couple of others are in a class of their own. They offer housing to players. Typical private schools can not do this.

Skyway, I am not here to defend IMG in any way, shape or form.   However, I do want to point out that the FHSAA Handbook does have a policy (policy 35) that expressly allows for Boarding Schools.   Too many specifics to go into here, but if all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed, boarding school athletes can play sports and the schools can compete in the FHSAA championship series.  In other words, kids can live on school campus along with the non-athletes.   Now, if you're talking about a school providing housing for the kid and his family, that's a different story.

People will say STA is one of the schools boarding students yet I don't see anything on their website where this so called "student boarding" exists

 

But a certain Lakeland fan will say with no doubts that STA is out there recruiting and housing athletes because some clown who don't know football on that Prep Gridiron board will say it's true and some people actually think that board is full of intelligent posters and not just a South Georgia regional board that it really is :lol:

I think the rule is that athletes can't receive special benefits for it 

 

Meaning as long as the school boarding applies the same standard to all students there's no rule against it but that becomes a very grey area once you dig into it

Roughly 30 games cancelled due to weather in our area including our anticipated match with APK.  Has to be frustrating for all coaches and kids that were prepared to show what they would look like in the upcoming season.  Hope we don't have a repeat next week.  

Ray, I was peaking ahead at the weather for this Friday in the Tampa Bay area.  "Summer rain patterns" have returned and likely will continue through the end of this week.  Right now, I've seen 70% - 80% chance of late afternoon thunderstorms in the area.   It won't surprise me to see several games get canceled or postponed  . . . and since the weather likely will be the same on Saturday, I suspect we'll see some Saturday morning or early Saturday afternoon games.

Agree, as most years in our area the first 2-3 weeks of HS football we have to endure showers (but we see a game).  When lightning gets in the mix it is not fun for most fans to show up and not see a game.

    • main man I do not care about highschool football that much, I didnt make any excuse. I said the game was an upset if you comprehended, which is also MY opinion. Don’t be no keyboard soldier like columbia now. 
    • It is a good thing that breaking hearts is not a crime. Otherwise, I might have had to retain the services of a very good to great legal representative. Clarence Darrow, Johnnie Cochran, and F. Lee Bailey are no longer with us, but I would need a legal mind of that caliber for sure.  
    • You know something Dan, for all of the education and lessons that I have provided you over the years, you should be thanking me! It has been a honor and privilege for you to be able to speak with me during this time, and I suppose that that big ego of yours and blue and gold Buccaneer pride won't let you admit what we both know is true. No woman has ever committed a foul with me, but I have been known to have been penalized for non-contact with many ladies after they have had the greatest night of their lives, and they realize that once you go black and white, you never go solid shirt again!  
    • Will start by saying I truly respect Coach Beek's opinion, but I have to disagree that our Kowboys should have won that game EASY.   Lakeland is an extremely talented team that in my opinion should be favored in a couple of weeks vs Venice. They do need better discipline as a team and if anything that could be their downfall.  If Coach meant we could have won or should have won that game and outplayed Lakeland, I would agree with that assessment.  The other disagreement I would have is his questioning the play calling as opposed to the execution.  The example he gives on our opening drive of the 3rd quarter where another TD would have definitely put the foot on Lakeland's neck when down on about the 15 yard line was not a bad play call.  Yes, we were pretty successful moving the ball on the ground on that drive to get to that second and 1 or 2.  Going for the jugular thru the air on that second down knowing if it failed you still have 2 more DOWNS to pick up a first on the ground in my humble opinion was a good call.  What possessed our QB to not just throw it away when the primary target was covered rather than lofting a lazy pass into the middle of the end zone where the only player in the area was a defender was a bad decision on his part, not a bad play call.  Not taking anything away from Lakeland's all world secondary, but all 3 of their INT's were on similar bad decisions by our QB  rather than great defensive prowess.  As I stated in the beginning, we ran the ball well this game opposed to the first game but I think that was due to us mixing it up with a good amount of passing.  The double reverse at the end I could see someone questiioning as that was asking alot in a pressure situation to execute.  Since stats for Osceola have not be posted for this game I can only give you an opinion that I believe we probably had roughly 125-150 yards on the ground and about the same thru the air (good balance).  So to say our success was the ground game is inaccurate.  Lakeland has posted their stats and these are their numbers:  38 yards passing and 157 rushing for a total of 195 with 65 or so coming on 1 play on the ground.   These numbers as opposed to their usual offensive output against all 11 of their other opponents reflects the sentiment of who should have won.
