Why Vero Beach will win states this year

Recommended Posts

1. Their defense is crazy this year, holding Venice, Centennial, and Pahokee to only a combined 55 points, and all of those games were on the road too.

2. Vero Beach returns a veteran offense along with most of the o line man and 2 exceptional wide receivers with one hell of a quarterback too. Their running game has also improved a lot since their game against Venice.

3. Confidence doesn’t seem to be a problem for them this year, it seems they have the hunger that was lacking last year.

4. Riverview is not as good as they were this year, so I think they are not a significant threat to Vero this year. Osceola also doesn’t impress me.

5. They will be at home for the first 2 or 3 rounds of the playoffs.

What are your guys thoughts on this?

Vero has not been terribly successful running the ball...

Venice-22 carries for 48 yards 

Dr Krop 15 carries for 77 yards

Pahokee 26 carries for 78 yards

Centennial 29 carries for 70 yards

I cannot see them winning a state title without more consistent balance on offense.  If they make it to the state final, I suspect they will face a very tough defense that will pin their ears back if Vero is one dimensional.

Yes and no. Despite not having good numbers rushing they have been trying  to get the ground game running poor efficiency has been a cause but also penalties. They had some big plays come back for calls which would have helped our numbers and also its was more so a “who’s gonna be the best option” at first with no clear view at the beginning of the season if we had a workhorse so the line really never got a chance to come together in the offseason and mesh to see what style running back they’d be blocking for, as we know different backs have different  styles of running which requires a different style of blocking despite the same plays being called.  I think the second half with Primus-Winston being the “bell cow” they will improve knowing how he runs. Not to mention they don’t have a by week until later this season so it wasn’t like they could install anything earlier. I have faith they’ll get the running game better, as I believe the coaches want to have it as a bigger part of the game plans.

The O-line is pretty much all new from last season, the Viera KOC game was evident of that, the line play was abysmal, but they are improving. Pahokee’s D line ran roughshod on them, though.

i think you may see Vero lose possibly this week or next (more likely.) After the Centennial game their sideline looked like a war zone with many starters down due to injury. I don’t know how many of those injured players will be back this week, but both Westwood and a big physical Treasure Coast team will come into the game after a bye week. Having played 9 games straight, Vero may very well limp into their bye during week 10.

Their not winning states this year trust me, running game is suspect and we have to rely on Harris or Cuff to score for us,  there is like 5 ways you can beat Vero this year

I think we finish out the rest of the regular season undefeated but I can't see us making it past the second round of the playoffs

If standings stay the same they will play DP in the second round who's offense is looking a little shaky but there defense will get after Veros Qb so that will still be a tough game for Vero. 

If they do make it past that they will probably run into Osceola, who even tho doesn't impress you has been playing lights out and has three things Vero struggles with:

1. A good running game with multiple backs who can take it the distance at any time.

2. A mobile QB, who Vero always struggles with as we seen how Viera's mobile QB torched there defense in the classic.

3. A really good D-line that will get to the QB.

Why do you doubt your team so much? Earlier in the year, back when your icon was green and your name was FloTech, you said that Vero Beach would comfortably beat Mainland because they returned 75 percent of the offense. Mainland is a pretty damn good team from what I’ve heard, and if you guys can face them, why do you think Riverview or Osceola would knock you guys out of the playoffs? It just doesn’t make any sense to me.

What position did you play in 2013?  Is this the only year you have played football?  Curious as to how you know how to beat VB?  They look decent to me....but then again what do I know?

Go back and look at our schedules that we've been playing for the last 10 plus yrs not just coach J era but before then and compare them to the teams we lose to in the playoffs

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
