Kings Academy


Recommended Posts

Where the love for the Kings Academy Lions? Undefeated regular season 8-0 and not a mention anywhere. I know they play in the Southeast Conference but wins against Benjamin, Pinecrest and Glades Day. Only giving up an average 5.5 points a game and scoring an average 40+!

They have been very sound all year.  I would love to see Kings Academy join the Independent Gold Coast Conference and swap places with Inlet Grove to be honest with you.  I think Kings would fit in well in that Independent Conference that has a few decent teams.  Inlet Grove is simply not fit to be in that conference with all due respect.

Kings Academy versus Marathon will unfortunately be a bloodbath in Round 1 of the Southeastern Independent League playoffs....The fact Marathon is in the playoffs is frankly-  atrocious.....


I have been following Kings Academy but due to lack of competition in that Independent Conference, it is very hard to stay interested.  The Gold Coast Conference is much more competitive.

The North is very competitive with Benjamin , Pinecrest and Glades. The south not so much. Still doesn't take away from the amazing season they have had. Should get more respect and mentions.


You could say it is "competitive" and those teams are decent -  relative to the conference.  The conference lost a lot when they lost Coral Springs Charter, Calvary Christian, Westminster Academy and Pompano Beach in 2015.


Not to take anything from Kings Academy undefeated season but do you think Kings Academy is also dominating because of the above teams leaving the conference for the Gold Coast Independent Conference?




A couple of changes I noticed in the Southeast Independent League :



Benjamin 2015 SE Indepenent record 1-8   2016 SE Independent record 6-2 (thus far)


Kings Academy 2015 SE Independent record  3-6    2016 SE Independent record  8-0 (thus far)



Either way, Kings Academy has had a awesome season and from what I can see the Kings Academy has only had 1 losing season in the last 12 years.  Again, it would be great to get the Kings Academy in the Gold Coast Conference ...spread the word!

    • With me you know that you will always get a solid, straight answer that you can take to the bank and exchange for cash! In fact, it is same to assume that most message board posters would agree with the quote "That Jambun82 knows what he is talking about" You're welcome for that Perspective.  
    • Thanks Jambun (and thanks for the correction on PF vs UNS).  But, I guess it's like my Momma always told me:  "Officials are like a box of chocolates . . . you never know what you're going to get."  
    • Perspective, the foul would be an Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty, not a Personal Foul penalty. Obviously, every official has a different level of tolerance for an objection to a call by a coach or player. The NFHS rules states that a UNS Conduct foul by a non-player includes, but is not limited to, disrespectfully addressing or trying to influence a decision by an official. That is very broad, as you would already know in legalize terms. Certain Coaches reputation procedes them, and the language used by the coach has an effect obviously. Good Head Coaches will instruct their assistant coaches not to voice any objections or complaints to the officials, and a good sideline official will mention to the Head Coach in the pregame that he/she only wants to communicate with the Head Coach. I suppose that the situation comes down to the individual officials tolerance level, with good officials realizing and respecting that Coaches spend all week preparing for a emotional game where circumstances will come up where leeway should be given, and not everything is black and white. It is a fine balancing act.  
    • Jambun, I had to laugh when I read the phrase that the team who got penalized for the PF "must have voiced some sort of objection."   So, with that in mind, and recognizing that all officials have different tolerance levels, what's the general rule of thumb for when words and/or actions rise to the level of a personal foul?   Clearly, coaches voice their displeasure with calls (and non-calls) all the time without triggering a PF.  What's the trigger?   Curse words?  Volume level?  Continuing beyond a certain point (i.e., after the official looks over and says "that's enough, Coach")?  Do you/officials tend to give a coach a little more leeway if you/they start having reservations about the call in dispute? Last, and looking at it from the other side of the issue, what's the most effective way a coach can communicate to an official that he 'respectfully disagrees' with the call that just got made/missed?
