This is interesting... thoughts?

 

Damn let the games begin I guess.    If you ain't texting, you ain't trying!    Honestly it's kind of messed up, but I'm sure this sort of thing is going to be happening a lot more now with the new rules.   Look on the bright side, there are going to be some good teams out there in random places!

It seems pretty normal to me for players to recruit for their teams. I don't know if there's anything you can do about it. If it was a coach that sent that message, which it doesn't appear to be, it is obviously wrong to do so.

 

I don't think there is a way to control players and parents recruiting for your school, and those are the avenues most coaches who recruit will go through. Maybe a coach can't entice little johnny to come to school "B", but your players, or parents or friends of the program can without penalty.

Players talk to each other all the time everybody knows everybody and this is going to happen everywhere.  As long as no coaches or school officials are involved then all is okay.  I don't see it as an issue unless it can be proven that a coach was involved but I would guess the kid that showed this text to his coach isn't planning on going to Trenton.

Actually if i read the fhsaa rules right from their website it is illegal for ANY member of the team to recruit, coaches or players

The seeds of this started several years ago when Lakeland fans hired an attorney and got Florida legislators involved in Tallahassee. Anytime politicians are involved follow the money. I concur with 954gator, let the games begin....welcome to the new wild,wild west.

 

Yep, and most of them don't get it.  I'm all for school choice for academic purposes but its become a legal loophole for athletic recruiting.

The problem is this was in writing. Anybody is crazy if you don't think this is going on at every 7 on 7 practice or AAU basketball tournament. Like it or not this is the world we live in. Shark you know all about the Fhsaa allowing recruiting. You guys lost a once in a lifetime talent to IMG who the Fhsaa endorses.

Great point about the 7 on 7.  But the issue of the text message is a non story, don't think for a minute that players from other schools probably even Williston haven't tried to talk Trenton players into coming to their school.  It has been going on for years and will continue.

True, but what are the consequences for a non coach? Is it fair to fine a school for what a minor does? Can you punish a player for trying to get a friend to come to the same school as him? What can you do to little Johnny's uncle who is trying to find some receivers for his nephew, who is the new qb at school Z to throw to.

    • 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.
