Columbia 33 IMG Academy Blue (National team) 20 Final

Agree. So many other teams use the same tactics and even worse. I've watched many IMG games and never saw illegal tactics being used. IMG is taught professionally and they play like a college team. Put a college team up against any HS team in Florida, including STA, and see if they can survive the hard defensive tackling and offensive blocking. IMG just hits harder and probably quicker, than most teams.

Honestly I would love to be at that game.  Not because I want to see Columbia get blown out, I believe their kids will step up to the level of the competition.  I do not think they can win the game, but I think they will be prepared for the test, and put up a fight.  They play a lot of lopsided games before the playoffs, and its not their fault.  Playing IMG will give their coaching staff a measuring stick.  Good luck fellas.  I am not scheduling IMG, lol.

The away team usually fills the visitor side to over flowing, 500 or so. There will be plenty of room on the home side though. They may pull in 400 fans and maybe 80 or so family. The home side looked like it would seat 4000 or so people. Not sure.

Columbiahighfan,

 

Congratulations to the Tigers for pulling off a huge upset although it was a KO Classic. It's still a game against one of the best, if not the best, teams in the country. Maybe the Tigers'  7A opponents should now take notice. :)

33-20 final for Columbia over IMG Blue (national team)

 

Img first loss since AHP in 2015

Congrats.  Unfortunately your best two wins of recent are games that don't count.  Maybe this year you will get to make your trip to Orlando.  Long season but it looks like the Tigers are for real.

Yeah

 

This Columbia team was a machine from the start of the game

 

Went right down the field on img and was getting open basically every play for first quarter on their secondary 

 

Ask @nolebull813 or @Steve

    • 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
