Being new to the board, I thought I would give out a shout to my area.  Some people blow off Lee County for not having a state championship in football.  I totally understand.  However, our area has produced many NFL players and a HOF er in Deion.  The truth is, our talent is so spread out we can't really get one program to be the all-star team.  2010 South Fort Myers lost to Duke and the Norland team by 21.  FM in the early '90s could have won a state title if not for being in the same class as STA.  FM hung with STA for a half in '01 but had too many kids going both ways and got worn down.  Fort Myers is currently 4th in the state with total wins which means we have played football for a long time, but also have put a nice team on the field most years.  Fort Myers' all sports program has won 6A all sports trophy in '15 and '16 and came in second this year.  State titles by our girls basketball team 3 years in a row and should make it 4 this year.  Softball won state in '16 but lost in the semi-final this year.  Volleyball, always tough.  All I'm saying is that none of you are going to be impressed but being a Greenie is awesome.  I look forward to meeting posters on this site to in Orlando for the State Championships.   Oh one more thing.  Big thanks to Josh for running his site.  It's by far the best I've found.

Riverdale and Golden Gate are for real as in capable of winning a couple playoff games.  Cypress Lake and Mariner are not.  If Immokalee gets their qb healthy, no telling how far they can go.  Dunbar with numerous D1 players is  a mess  up to this point.  Should know a lot more after tomorrow's game.

Is the former Apopka coach/player still at Riverdale?

SW FL has always produced great wrestlers.  Jeff Mustari of Lely was an All-American 35 years ago when Florida wrestlers were not typically recognized on the national scene.  

Back then a lot of kids wrestled and played football, which was great for football.
