2013 South Dade 14-1 8a state champion 

1999 Bartow State champion don't know their record

2015 Viera 10-5 7a state runner ups 

2005 Deerfield Beach 1

Don't you mean 1996 for Bartow?

 

That was year they upset Bolles but haven't been back since

 

 

 

Flanagan had a major coaching exodus which also lead to a huge talent turnover 

 

 

Viera hadn't been able to beat plant last 2 years otherwise they probably would have won 7a north because they were better than both region 1 reps in last 2 years

 

 

The other 3 I'll leave to someone from South Florida to comment on

Bartow won state 3 times 

 

1977

1985

1996

 

1977 and 1985 teams were coached by same person who lead Columbia to their only title in 1967

I'll take them off then

South Dade has always been in tough region.  Has been easier this decade (with NW, Central and Carol City in different class) but still have to deal with Southridge, Columbus, Killian and Coral Gables

Killian hasn't been attracting the same talent that they used to

You can currently replace Killian with Palmetto.

With Deerfield, there's a whole thread on it. Always talented, coaching brings them down. Not sure about Palm Beach Gardens

 Before I clicked on the link I thought of Palm Beach Gardens...they’ve had WAY more talent after that championship team, but they either barely make the playoffs or lose in the first round. They’ve had multiple 4/5 star players on the same team and average 5/6 wins a season....makes me wonder who’s ranking these guys, because they don’t produce/dominate the hs level...The dB (Hall) from Lakes was the deal last year though

Of the teams named so far, I think Flanagan wins hand down. 

...others deserve some credit/slack

Viera and Ponte Vedra are pretty new schools, so maybe deserve some slack.  Viera is online now and PV did make a deep run in 2011.

Killian and South Dade-Historically have played in brutal regions of 6A and 8A

PB Gardens has lost some tough games in the playoffs, ie Boone 06,(state semifinalist), Miramar 2011(state finalist), South Dade 2013 (state champ).

Booker lost to eventual state champ Miami Pace in 2003, Cocoa in 2007.

Ely has had many great teams and were defeated by numerous eventual state champions/finalists...Bradenton Southeast (93 and 94), Lakeland (99), Venice, (2000), Edgewater (04), St Thomas Aquinas (05, 06, 07) , Dwyer (13)

Pensacola lost in state semis in 1986, 1996 and 2004.

Pasco lost in state semis in 1983, 2008 and 2011.

St Augustine-Finalist in 2001 and 2007, state semis in 2002, 2004, 2010

Northview-state semis in 2010 and 2011

Mainland-in state semis many times over the years

So, as a 20-year head coach, which of the two scenarios would you prefer to have on your resume?  

A- has won 2 state titles and 2 state semi appearances, 8 losing seasons.

B- has won 1 state title and has 7 state semi appearances, 3 losing seasons

A is more like a used to or have been examples: Palm Bay, Lincoln

B is more like a Palm Beach Gardens or Viera type team 

I'll rather be the former

Maybe B 

Man all I was doing was just bringing up an interesting topic that ain't never really been covered I mean you always bring up interesting topics too

My team was in the same class as Palm Beach Gardens. 

They beat Boone 21-7 in the second or third round, a team we lost to 17-14. We probably would have played them had we beaten Boone for the district title. We ended up losing a district tie breaker.

6A had a ton of parity in 2005. Reflecting back it was probably one of the weirder years of all time, especially in CFla. Lyman and Winter Springs were both good that year.

    • Perspective, I will try to answer your questions.   1. The reason why officials seem to hesitate to blow their whistles is  because the whistle very rarely ends the play itself. Usually, the result of the play, such as a runner running out-of-bounds or a receiver making a catch on the ground. In those type of situations, a defensive player is not going to make a tackle or hit an offensive player after that action just because a whistle did not blow. Forward progress can be tricky, and it is usually better to wait to blow the whistle, and then determine the result of the play instead of blowing a whistle immediately which automatically ends the play. 2. The coaches teaching the players to play to the whistle is incorrect, and most officials would urge coaches to stop teaching that phrase. The result of the play ends the play, not the whistle unless it is an inadvertent whistle. 3. By the letter of the rule the officials do not have the authority to send out a player to the sideline. However, there is an understanding among coaches and officials of the idea of a penalty box, meaning an official can point out to a coach that one of his players is getting out of control, and needs a 'cooling off' period without drawing a penalty. The player then can come back into the game at the coaches discretion. I do not know of one high school coach who has every declined this arrangement. 4. That sounds like a blown call by the officiating crew.
    • I was looking forward to that Chaminade v Cocoa matchup this season. Hopefully they had a home n home setup
    • The Bloodhounds are a bit unsettled at QB, so Lake Gibson's stout defense was too much. Assuming Lake Gibson is able to play Lakeland next week (a big assumption with Covid), LG might ought to be a slight favorite. Lakeland has been completely shut down since Sep. 8, and won't be able to do anything until Tuesday of game week.
    • Thad Franklin got hurt late in the game. AHP has a very athletic defense that owned CM's big O-line. You would think Thad Franklin on a rainy night behind that O-line would be able to score, but no.  CM's O-line needs work on blocking. CM is a very formidable team in 3A.  But I do not think the Lions have the firepower on offense to be considered one of the best teams in the state amongst all classes.    Both teams have quick D's that will give offenses trouble.  AHP's offense needs some reps.           
    • Lions had their chance.  Thad Franklin broke off a big run but Lions fumbled it on the next play due to bad exchange from qb.
