Plant has won 2 big 7v7 tournaments this year.  They won both the UCF and USF camps.  There were some very good teams in attendance.  They smoked BA in the finals.

Here is a solid summary  from Larry Blustein on how SFL teams competed at the USF 7 v 7 Sling & Shoot :

I wonder how schools like sta would do if they competed in 7 on 7 as a team instead of their players just doing the 7 on 7 travel team approach

Well if you use common opponents Madison and university Christian probably about same tier

 

They both won close games against Fort White 

University Christian's 41-7 win over Dixie County is notable and fairly impressive considering Dixie County played fairly competitive games versus  @ Trenton - L 13- 20, and Newberry L 20 - 24.

I think Universtiy Christian versus Pahokee/Madison on a neutral field would have been a nice 2016 game!

That was calpreps projection on Madison and university Christian

Interesting enough is Madison wins projection by 10 while Pahokee wins by 4 despite fact Pahokee beat Madison and won 1a

Probably not nearly as dominant as 11 man football. I don't really hear about Bishop Gorman, St. John Bosco and IMG and other top 25 type schools in 7 on 7 national events either.

 When you have Stranahan winning national championships that should back that up a bit...

Miami Central and Flanagan haven't done 7 on 7 either as a team in recent years but some of their players did do the 7 on 7 travel teams.  If I am not mistaken the travel 7 on 7 is more winter and early spring rather than summer.

Obviously it did not phase those 3 teams too much not competing in the HS team summer 7 on 7s  over the last few years ....

Put it this way.  If my team did 7 on 7s , I would surely rather they look good than not.  Like 954gator said when you see a generally established team like Plant doing well in 7 on 7s, it is probably generally a better sign than not...at least at the skilled positions.

Absolutely 

 

How Columbia did in camps and 7 on 7 is what gave me confidence in 2015, interesting fact we didn't do it in 2014 and offense clearly had chemistry issues, in 2015 we set records after doing 7 on 7 in summer 

 

Now 7 on 7 doesn't translate to wins all the time but it probably helps more than hurts and a lot of times this summer stuff like these contact camps and 7 on 7 camps and tournaments will translate to better skill position performance in the fall and usually gives you better chemistry

28-24 Pahokee over university Christian

 

 

31-21 Madison over university Christian

 

 

I just realized link didn't work so these were the scores 

Interesting....I don't think either of those teams put up quite that many points in November on University Christian though....

I think what hurts university Christian more than anything is 2a overall is weak and they lack competition on the north side of the bracket 

 

North Florida Christian isn't what they once were and they probably second best team in 2a north

 

So university Christian gets pushed aside due to not being in a good class

 

Plus when they play powerhouses, like tca and Brentwood academy for example they struggle so people usually don't see them as elite, i personally dont see them as elite but i agree with you on the fact they get overlooked when people talk about solid Florida teams, especially for their class

What if the classes that are tied had more teams ranked higher than the class they were tied with?

What i did to break ties was which ever class had the highest ranked team was given edge

 

For example 4a and 3a were tied

 

3a number 1 Chaminade Madonna was higher than 4a number 1 cocoa so 3a was given the bump over 4a in the rankings

 

 

I'll be doing the same thing throughout the season so these rankings are likely to change from week to week

Looks like more South Fl teams than I thought.   My point was it's not an easy tournament to win, and if my memory serves me correctly, the last time Plant was dominant in 7v7 they were winning state championships.

Pretty sure Miami Central has been playing 7v7 this year.  Can anyone confirm this?

Well Plant was at state last year, just didn't go that well

 

I see 6 teams with shot to win 7a north 

 

Plant 

Viera 

Lakeland 

Robert E Lee 

Columbia 

Bartram trail 

 

 

I'll start by eliminating 2 teams who match up badily with sta

 

Bartram trail doesn't have secondary to be threat to sta so that won't be a game to hope for 

 

Robert E Lee has a overly aggressive defense and doesn't play enough top level teams to be ready for sta and that overly aggressive defense would get exposed by sta

 

So leaves 4 teams

 

Plant and viera have played sta but didn't do well so question is do you think them getting a second shot at sta will lead to a better outcome? 

 

Leaves lakeland and columbia both teams with a lot of history and have been able to beat teams they probably shouldn't have in their past

 

So which team gives best opportunity to give sta a game?

They were in top 10 until Jones was added in

 

And i see them finishing 3rd in that district and being down this year 

Have to disagree with you on this. Bolles has year in and year out either been in the championship game or within a game of it. To think that they will not be within the top 10, and even near the top, in their classification is not very realistic. I respect your opinion. However, just can't see it.. ;)

2 reasons

 

1 no Corky Rogers 

 

2, 5a district they in actually has competitive teams, something Bolles not used to facing

Like the only team even close to them talent in their District last few years been raines, the rest of the district were no where close to Bolles, i see 2 teams better than them and then you throw in a team like Bishop Kenny who no pushover you got a far tougher road then normal and no Corky Rogers will cause a adjustment period that i feel holds Bolles back in 2017

  They obviously competed at the Duke Johnson 7 on 7 but traditionally over the last 5 years Central has rarely (if anytime) competed in 7 v 7 events as a HS team.  Have not noticed Central at any other events but it appears they may now actively be doing 7 v 7s.  I am not sure if they did the Duke Johnson or any 7 on 7 tourney at all last year...  Zoe Boy can probably confirm this...

    • They used to teach sex ed at Columbia, but they stopped because they needed the car for driver's ed. 
    • They don't teach sexed in Columbia County?
    • For whatever reasons, I see a big difference between high school and college.  I'm glad the NCAA decided to give college spring sport participants an extra year of eligibility . . .  although it appears that the burden will be on the schools to find the money needed to pay for the players who will be returning for an extra year of college (perhaps a full year unless they sit out fall semester), the underclassmen who would be returning anyway,  as well as the new players coming in.   But it was the right thing to do.  And while many of the winter sport athletes (like basketball and gymnastics) missed out on what could have been the highlight of their career (like post-season tournaments), I'm OK with not giving these student-athletes another year of eligibility.  More of a gut call than a logical analysis.  But, while I feel horrible for the high school spring sport athletes, and remain hopeful that they will be allowed to complete their spring sport seasons -- abbreviated as they may be -- I just don't feel right about high school kids postponing graduation to play another season of high school sports.  I just don't think it would be smart/prudent/advisable to put off an entire year of college just so they can come back for another year of high school and play another year of  baseball or football (or whatever).   [As an aside, such a decision by the FHSAA would likely require them to change their bylaws and allow kids to play after they've reached the magic age (19?)]. As a practical matter, seniors who participate in spring sports, and who hope to obtain college scholarships in those sports, already have been offered.  Baseball and softball are both big club sports, and tennis is in a category all its own.  Lacrosse is still relatively new in Florida, but the better players already have been identified as juniors and/or based on their club play.  Same with even newer sports like boy's volleyball and water polo.  I'm not really sure where Track & Field and Weightlifting fit in, but I'm guessing the really fast and really strong athletes already have been identified and, if scholarships are available, offered.  I do feel particularly bad for the flag football players if they are not able to complete their seasons, as the sport doesn't exist yet in college (except as a club sport).    I saw something posted the other day quoting a high school baseball coach who claimed it would take at least three weeks of practice to have his team ready to play games again.   Sorry, but I call B.S. on this.   If I were a high school senior who played baseball (like I once was), you could have me game-ready in a week - especially if school was over or almost over and restrictions on practice time, if any, were lifted.  My thought:  once the FHSAA gives teams the green light to hit the field again, give them all a week to practice, have them play one or two games and then go straight into district tournaments, with all seeding be done at random.  Double elimination, if possible.  Yeah, some good teams might get shafted and some seasons are going to come to end way too soon for some teams and a lot of players, but something is better than nothing.  Anyway, I was bored and this topic seemed as good as any to stir things up a little.  I've put my thoughts out there.   What do you guys think?
    • Here is a message from the FHSAA.  They want to extend the season.  It won't happen but at least the FHSAA is not just canceling and trying to find ways.  However in my opinion they are giving false hope and there is no way this will happen.   GAINESVILLE, FL - Given the directive of President Trump to maintain following CDC guidelines through April 30, 2020, combined with Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran's mandate for schools in Florida to remain closed through May 3, 2020, the FHSAA will continue to follow suit with all scheduled FHSAA meetings, conferences, and athletic events postponed. Pending schools are back in session and afforded the opportunity to resume activities after May 3rd, by Federal, State and Local authorities, the FHSAA will follow the advice and guidance available to us at that time regarding the continuance of all FHSAA spring sports.   In light of the current situation, the FHSAA staff is actively working on creative solutions for the continuance of spring sports, which could extend through June 30th. The FHSAA does understand the hardships caused by COVID-19 and the inability to play spring sports. If we are not able to continue spring sports, the FHSAA is working diligently to create a plan regarding additional eligibility for students who have not been able to participate in spring sports.    The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, officials, fans and local communities are our top priority. We appreciate all member schools' cooperation in following Federal, State and Local recommendations and mandates during this time.   For the most up-to-date information, please visit the FHSAA website. The FHSAA staff will continue to follow the latest developments and will continue to provide updated information as deemed necessary.   The FHSAA office will remain closed following the Governor's recommendation. However, staff will continue to work remotely, during regular business hours. For staff contact information, click here.
