1. Ask have at least one championship

2. All have been around over 30 years

3. 

4.

I think 2 is right. Not sure about 1. Did either Chamberlin or Astronaut ever win a ship? Off the top of my head, and I stand corrected, I can't recall either winning a title.

That is a tough quiz. You have done at least one better than I did. I was laying a goose egg!

How about someone from each of those played in the NFL, and maybe in the SuperBowl?

I know they are all old schools, I knew lots of them had won championships but wasn't sure about all. Most have played in multiple classes.  I think most have probably had a coach with 100 plus wins.

If that's case then Columbia needs to be added bc we have 2 coaches in our history with 100 wins

HINT: If you are very familiar with football in a certain area of the state, focus on the teams from your area.  For instance, there are 6 Dade/Broward County teams on the list.  There are 3 Polk County teams on the list.  There are a number of panhandle teams on the list.  

Look for four things in common amongst those schools from your area, and hint, hint, the trends may be similar throughout the state.  If you are familiar with Polk County football history, I can think of one thing that should slap you in the face about Lakeland, Bartow and Lake Wales?

Columbia

When you had a question like this(Name four things....) on a test at Columbia HS, did you walk up to the teacher and ask him how many you had right so far, son?  I head that school was easy:P  

Submit your 4 answers and we will see:D  I will say, that Sharkbait feller is purdy smart and may be getting warm;)

All of these schools have been winning football games for a long time.  That's a good thing to know.

1. Each teams wears a helmet during games

2.  They all have a weight room

3.  They all have a mascot

4.  They all have a coach

...very clever, but I am terribly disappointed with you badbird:wacko:None of your responses were correct.  :P

1. Coaches and some players on the sidelines do not wear helmets during games.:ph34r:

2. That used to be true, but not anymore.  Aquinas' linemen ate all of their weights and somebody stole Frostproof's dumbell. :o

3. That used to be true, but the new transfer rules have impacted team mascots as well, so some teams have vacancies.  Astronaut's  war eagle has transferred to Wakulla.  And Frostproof's bulldog went to Bolles(even the mascots are going to the private schools now!).     Lakeland used to have a mascot, but the Navy took it back.:blink:  

4.  They all have coaches, not just a "coach.":(  And at this moment, some teams do not actually have a head coach due to vacancies.

Nice try though, badbird.:lol:

1.  None of them have Larry Nassar as their trainer.  Too soon?  

2. They all had a team last season.

3.  Each of them have white in at least one of their jersey combinations.

4. They all have at least one boy on the team

Yeah too soon

 

Speaking of which

    • Going to do my best to compile a list of available streams, both free and paid (NFHS), for each week of the season. There is nothing like sitting in the stands watching a high school football game. BUT, there is also nothing like a sitting on the couch, cold beer in hand, streaming 5-10 of the best games in the state NFL RedZone-style. If you know of any other streams, please let me know so that I can update the original post. Here is what I've got so far: NFHS (Plenty more--just highlighting some of the bigger games available) 1. (Wed., 7:00 PM) Belen-Columbus 2. (Fri., 7:00 PM) Godby-Lincoln 3. (Fri., 7:00 PM) Miami Pace-Heritage (Plantation) YouTube 1. (Fri., 7:00 PM) Heritage (Delray)-Vero (https://www.youtube.com/user/VBHSFootball) 2. (Fri., 7:30 PM) Lakeland-Manatee (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmVjWtLdmHsdu4CT-8eL62w/videos) 3. (Fri., 7:30 PM) Palmetto-Pinellas Park (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLIzhof_w_SRZuVP2lFtmMA/videos) The Identity TB 1.

    •               If that's true than it's clear there was a lot of reasons these players wanted him gone and I can't exactly blame them      
    • Lely High School also had an issue with the guy and he was gone after a year there. Dictator is what I’ve been hearing to describe him. Can’t have morning practice and then hold kids after school 4 hours. 
    • Wow I'm surprised a coach with those numbers could keep getting the head job   I figured he would have to settle for a coordinator position by now
    • His record should ban him from coaching alone.  Any team that hires him as the head coach deserves to fail
