School wide rivals

If 2 schools face off in every sport are they rivals? 

For it to be a  true rivalry, the games need to be competitive and the fans have to develop a "dislike" for the other guys.

You would think in most situations where they face off in multiple sports a rivalry would develop. It's usually but not always the case.

Hmm 

 

Do you know of any schools in central Florida who play in every sport?

Guess Gainesville is rivals then lol

 

We have had several sports where we are trying to one up the other whether we playing directly or just playing a common opponent 

 

Plus i want to beat them more than Suwannee, plus as of late i never am fired up for playing Suwannee like i am for playing Gainesville

That's probably because Gainesville is more competitive. If you are going to win easily year after year, it is hard to be fired up.

Not in Greater Orlando, as there are so many schools that it is not likely you will be placed in the same district in all sports and while it's an option to have non-district games against your rival it does not always happen. Perhaps Colonial/University and Cypress Creek/Freedom and Boone/Edgewater as in each case, one school either gave birth to the other or both schools came out of a common mother. But I am not sure they play each other in every sport!

Cocoa/Rockledge, astronaut/titusville in all sports for sure. Other Brevard rivals in a few sports are MCC/Holy Trinity, Merritt Island/Cocoa, Viera/Rockledge,

The answer to the original is question is no, you're not a rival just bc you play in every sport. You could be in the same district for every sport and not necessarily be a "rival".

When I think of different rivalries, I think of rivalries developed by history (the Soul Bowls), prestige (Carol City/Northwestern/Central), a school coming about to take students away from another (Cypress Bay/Western), neighborhood/proximity (Muck Bowl/Carol City vs Norland/NMB vs North Miami Beach)

Raines/Ribault

Mandarin/Atlantic Coast

Sandalwood/Fletcher  

Yulee/Fernandina Beach

Were all these made traditionally or through competitive nature?

For Columbia if you look traditional you would say Suwannee is our rival (school wide) 

 

For competitive standpoint it's Gainesville (school wide) 

 

Football alone someone like buchholz also comes to mind

 

In the past when we played yearly someone like Lincoln and St Augustine also stands out 

 

Also a team like bartram trail has became a playoff rival

I remember Bolles and Raines had a good rivalry going in football

When I was at Western, we had two rivals:

-Cooper City (traditional rival, the "Hog Bowl", back when the schools were the only ones out west in Broward).

-Cypress Bay (developed when Cypress opened and took kids from Western for relief. Proximity of the schools and theyre in the same district.)

I am talking about more than just football here. 

 

Bolles and BK compete in every sport and its a really big deal, its huge in volleyball, soccer, baseball, track, cross country, swimming

 

Bartram and Creekside are less than like 2-3 miles and in the same district and knock each other out of the playoffs in several sports.

All of these are natural rivalries with Mandarin and Atlantic Coast being the newest one and they actually compete for a trophy in football

    • 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.
