John Carroll Catholic (Fort Pierce) @ Trinity Catholic (Ocala) - 3rd Round of Playoffs

Hmmmmm. The only other time the Celtics met the Golden Rams was in the 2020 playoffs. The Celtics won 48-0. The Rams had about the same record as they do now and the Celtics had struggled through much of that season. I think that both teams this Friday may be on the same level quality wise. From the videos I've seem the Rams have a pretty darn good QB in Maehl, a couple of decent WR's, and a tough RB in Colebrook (17 TDs). Can't see any real weaknesses. IMO the Celtics just have to play the game they are capable of and the night will end up successfully. :mellow:

Ocalla Trinity Catholic is another team that hit the class lotto. TC won’t win a game by less than 21 points

Is John Carroll not that competetive? I know little to nothing about them this year. Although in a so so district we did play some pretty good higher classification teams out of district. Especially giving CCC their only loss and losing to FSU High by 2 points on their field in the first game of the season. ;)

SOS def goes to Celtics. Rams had 1 bad game vs Cardinal Newman. Perhaps TC vs Raines. Nod goes to the Celts here. 

We do have a pretty darn good Sophomore QB Preston Wright, don't we? Guy makes this team run exceptionally well. I trust him and Beard to get the job done against any team.

As I suspected JCC (Ft Pierce) gave the Celtics all they could handle. Rams have 3 or 4 D-1 commit seniors. All tied up in the 4th quarter and then Wright and Beard came through against a very tough Ram defense in the last couple of minutes. Final 22-10 Celtics. Championship will be against another pretty good team, First Baptist Academy (Naples). I think they are better than their name would indicate. QB has nearly 1800 yds passing and their lead RB has just under 1,000 yds. However, they did lose to Pahokee and an Ohio team Chardon. ;)

They have a good WR, I think he’s committed to Clemson. They’re a good team, not that explosive (besides the WR), not going to beat themselves and make adjustments throughout the game.

First Baptist has a minimum 7 hour bus trip to Gene Cox Stadium. The Celtics have less than 3 hours. Since the game starting time is 1 pm on Saturday I'm assuming that the FBA team and most of the Naples community will be staying overnight on Friday and maybe even Saturday. Weather report for Saturday is clear skies, sunny, with tempertures around 67 degrees at 1 pm. Perfect football weather. I've watched FBA on video and they are a pretty good well disciplined team. They played a good 11-2 Ohio team Chardon, in Ohio, very close and should have won that game.  If the Celtics can stop receiving unecessary personal foul penalties maybe the opposing team would not have an easier time than they should. The Celtics certainly have all of the capabilities to defeat any team a lot easier than they sometimes do. :(

    • Wow that's absolutely discouraging.  I am also puzzled by the great disparities from county to county too.  Why isn't there a standard for the entire state?  Pinellas County is one of the lowest in the state so no wonder we lose all our best kids to the private schools.  
    • Great info.   Thanks for compiling and sharing.  I'd be interested to see how average teacher and administrator salaries rank for each county.   In other words, is a county above/at/below average with respect to coaching stipends but they're above/at/below average for teachers in general.  Not that I'm surprised (because I was generally familiar with some of the coaching stipends), but I remain disappointed that Hillsborough County places such a small value on coaches. 
    • 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
