In terms of consistency, I think St Thomas is the best overall hs football program the state has ever seen.  That said, it gets boring seeing them beat the same Broward teams to a pulp year after year.  Look at the records above.  Their district games against Ft Lauderdale and Ely this year will likely be running clocks.  For non-district foes, they are playing Piper and Flanagan, both of whom were 1-9 last season.  Stranahan and Boyd Anderson may not fare much better.  Those 6 teams above are a combined 9wins-70losses versus STA.  It would not surprise me if all of them were running clock games.

I like the fact STA routinely plays Deerfield Beach and Miramar.  Even though STA has gotten the best of them, there have been some great games.  For years STA played Cardinal Gibbons(40+ times), but for some reason those games stopped in 2011.  It's a shame, because Cardinal Gibbons has really come in to its own.  And STA has not faced Chaminade since 1981. 

Although I like the idea of "local games," the stats above show that the Broward public schools cannot normally hang with STA.  For that reason, it would be nice to see more games against the better teams from Miami-Dade/Palm Beach or even outside south Floirda. 

Oddly, since 1984, STA has only played regular season games against 2 Florida teams from outside Dade/Broward/Palm Beach...Port St Lucie and Ft Pierce Central, each in 2001 and 2002.  None of those were very good teams. In the 1970's and early 1980's, STA routinely played teams from outside their area during the regular season(Coral Shores, Key West, Naples, Immokalee, Clewiston, Okeechobee, Frostproof, Cocoa Beach, Bartow).  Except for the Frostproof team, those were not particularly good teams when they played STA, but it did make life a little more interesting.

All of the following were regular season games STA played against FL teams from outside Dade/Broward/Palm Beach over the past 50 years.  STA won games except those noted with an asterisk.  Their only loss on the road was a 16-12 loss to Okeechobee in 1974.  

Bartow 1983(A)

Clewiston 72(H)

Cocoa Beach 73(A) - tie game

Coral Shores 72(A), 74(A) and 75(H)

Ft Pierce Central 01(A), 02(H)

Frostproof 73(A) STA won 7-0

Immokalee 77(A)

Key West 75(H), 76(A), *77(H), 78(A), *79(H), 80(A), 84(A) 

Melbourne CC 70(H)

Naples *82(H), 83(A), 84(A)

ST Thomas went 9-0 versus Broward County public schools this year to run their record to ...

STA vs Broward County Public Schools   300 wins vs 56 losses (84% winning percentage)

STA vs All Broward County Schools          346 wins vs 68 losses (84% winning percentage)

STA's opponents this past season are a combined 29-111 versus STA.  Let's hope STA can do better than scheduling Flanagan and Stranahan in the future.

    • The Indianapolis Colts have been sponsoring the Indiana high school football playoffs for the past 10 years and the finals are played at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Their 6 state final games typically average about 7000 attendees per game.   Attendance at our 8 finals in Florida typically average less than 4000 per game.   http://www.maxpreps.com/news/7i8wgZirhkOi1psIZp8qkA/ihsaa-football-brackets,-stat-leaderboards-and-rankings.htm As you'll see from their website, the Colts are very involved with youth and high school football in the community.  I've looked on the websites for the Dolphins, Jaguars and Bucs and don't see anything like this.  It's disappointing we have 3 pro teams in the hs football hotbed of Florida yet the game doesn't seem to get as much support as a state with 1 pro team and a lot less hs players/teams.  https://www.colts.com/community/highschoolfootball/
    • Hopefully we beat Vero this year, I’ll be at that game without a doubt. Is Columbia playing you guys next year?
    • Is there a really that much of a difference once you are in the 1000s range? I mean these teams are playing completely different in completely states with probably very little overlap. Promoters of high school football here in Florida have tried some of the marquee match-ups with 2-3 games on a Saturday. Stadiums don't get filled. The biggest shame is that with 3 professional football teams in the state (4 if you want to count the Orlando Apollos), that more isn't done in the community to promote football as a whole. The NFL should be requiring empty stadiums to be used early in the season for big Saturday promotion of games. Make the games free. 

      Imagine 2 games on a Friday Night and 3 games on a Saturday at TIAA Field (Jax), Raymond James (Tampa), and Hard Rock Hotel (Miami) with 10 of the biggest teams in the areas or criss cross areas. Imagine a Trinity Christian facing off against Mandarin in the night time game, or Miami Northwestern vs Miami Central, or Plant vs Lakeland. Needless to say, professional sports sometimes stink at being ambassadors of the game on a community level. 
    • Ouch!   Not sure I'd want to be sitting at that dinner table right now.  
    • Would that be Jesse Hester (FSU) ?  If so, I remember him well.....great ball player
