Deland 20 Seminole 17

Recommended Posts

A wild finish in this one.  Seminole up 10-7 late in the 4th gets a goal line stand on 4th and goal from the 1 with about 4 minutes left.  They then proceed to have a bad snap and give up a TD to Deland who goes up 14-10. Seminole then hits a 60 yd TD on 4th and 2 to take a 17-14 lead with a little under 3 minutes left.  Deland drives the field and scores on about a 30 yd pass to the RB splitting the 2 high safeties with about 1 minute left.  Seminole drives down the field but the QB gets tackled on about the 15 yard line as time expired.


Deland has 3 really good athletes in WR Marks UF RB Bellamy USF and ATH Williams.  OL and QB play are question marks and they dropped two TD passes. I was impressed with their defense.  It was better than expected and the DL has potential.  Should be interesting to see how they develop.  Sandalwood, Mandarin and Flagler are not pushovers for sure and that district is still wide open.  2 really good wins for Deland to start the season but they have to stay healthy and get better up front and at QB.


Seminole has to find a run game.  They are not as good up front as they were last year.  Seminole could not run the ball.  I thought Seminole was pretty good on defense they just gave up a few big plays.  If Seminole wants to make a deep run developing a run game is crucial.

So is DeLand looking like they’re finally back. 

good team long way to go.  Not ready to crown them as district champs with Sandalwood, FPC and Mandarin in that district.  However they have some players and could definitely be a force if they stay healthy.

    • The school will probably be fined and might be penalized, loss of kick off classic or worst case possibly not eligible for the playoffs, but the kids will not be.  If the school gets the hammer the kids will just all leave to the next school.
    • Coach Jones had some great teams during the Suwannee era of 4 state championships in a row.  The only problem was they were in the district with Suwannee and only the district champion made the playoffs.  In one of the games Suwannee was ahead 13 - 7.  Wakulla drove down late in the game and ran play action.  The TE was absolutely wide open in the end zone...he dropped the td pass that would have probably won them the game.  Suwannee took over late inside their 10 and on 3rd and long ran a hitch to Matt Friar.  He broke a tackle at the line of scrimmage and was off to the races.....just like that the game was over and Suwannee cruised to a state champtionship. The following year Wakulla led 7 - 6 deep into the 4th quarter when once again Matt Friar made some key plays to get Suwannee into the end zone to go up 13 - 7.  Wakulla was trying to drive late and had a pick 6 which gave Suwannee the 20 - 7 win.  Once again, Suwannee cruised to another state championship.  Matt Friar was a great player. This is why I love more than just the district champions making the playoffs.  Coach Jones had some very good teams that narrowly missed the playoffs.  These teams could have made strong runs in the playoffs. When he won back to back state championships the games were played on teams home fields.  Two years in a row Wakulla had to travel.  They went to Clermont the first year and to Clewiston the following year to win state championships on their home fields.  That was two very long bus rides...and impressive wins!
    • Depends on whether you count only his relatively short head coaching stint or include his stint as a coordinator at more schools than one.
