This game has the feel of the year Dfb put it on sta to go 10-0. While I pray their field is finally up to par i see this being a very good game.

it can go either way lot of bragging rights at stake for the winner for Dfb this year it’s championship or bust. Is the year for the bucks ...time will tell.

Or Buford may not be that good this year but hey we will see 

Buford is 4-2 and the only teams they've lost to are DB and Archer, one of the better teams in GA. I think they're good lol.

Either way, I'm taking Deerfield. I still think they need to show me in the playoffs, but so far so good for them this season

While i agree Buford is good they probably aren't as strong as some of the previous teams they had (they have had some years where they were arguably top 5 in GA even though a lot in GA wouldn't admit it because they feel the only elite teams are in 7a Which is their large school class)

This should be a good game. With St Thomas getting handled by Central I have to think they will have something to prove! DFB is very good but I'll say St Thomas by a field goal !!!

I thought that same idea and if it was at STA i would pick them to rebound but playing in pot hole field at DFB is going to be tough

 

DFB in a low scoring game (like 2015)

Deerfield's field is not as bad as reputed. It will come down to which team is better.

    • Another way of putting it...the "big" kid always had a place in hs football.  As a hs coach, when that big kid showed up on the practice field, you said, "Son, we'll find a place for you somewhere." Now only the giant and/or fast kid has a place.  In terms of the average population, a 6'0" 230 pound high schooler is a BIG kid.  But in hs football today, if that kid is slow, there is really not a place for him.  He is too small for the line and too slow for any other position, at least in a state like Florida.        
    • Interesting graphic.... https://noahveltman.com/nflplayers/ Interesting comment..."Nowadays if you're 6' 3" and 280 pounds, you're too big for most skill positions and too small to play line." It's fascinating how over time people of a certain stature have been "squeezed out" of D1 football and/or NFL positions.  40 years ago a skilled, 6'3" 280 guy would be a lineman in the NFL.  Nowadays that guy would likely not be starting on a Power 5 team at any position. I wonder if in the future the same will be said for the 6'4" 300 -pound lineman?  Will they be too big and too small to play on an NFL team?  Everything is becoming more and more specialized.  With participation in football already declining in some areas, this level of specialization is a bit concerning.  Years ago, one saw kids of all shapes and sizes playing hs football.  Not anymore, at least not in the hs football hot spot areas.  Combine that with the growing concern over concussions and parents not allowing kids to play football, and I worry what football in the future will have to offer the "average" kid compared to other sports that seem to offer kids of more varying body types the opportunity to play.
    • I appreciate the response.   Let me focus on this one for just a second.   If an offensive player (a lineman or a receiver) is out ahead of the play (such that the QB or RB is behind them), how are they supposed to know when the play ends if there is no audible signal?   I just don't understand how you can ask a downfield blocker to know when he's supposed to stop blocking.  Is he supposed to turn his head and look behind him every other second to see if the play has ended?  Kind of hard to keep his eye on the man he is blocking if his head is turned around.  Maybe Linda Blair could do it, but I don't know of anyone else.  While I understand the easy "play is over" situations like a ball carrier hitting the ground or running out of bounds, what's wrong with a short, loud whistle to let all players know the play is dead?   Plant got burned by an inadvertent whistle in the playoffs a few years ago, so I understand the need to avoid that kind of situation.  But to not blow the whistle when a play is obviously over (to anyone looking at the play), and then turn around and penalize or send players off to cool down when they're still hitting after the play is over, despite no whistle having been blown, simply does not make sense to me.  But I appreciate the explanation. 
    • Request a refund. They grant them pretty easily. Oddly, Lakeland announced they will not offer any streams this year. They had one of the more reliable streams for the last several years. Bummer.
    • Brian Sheridan passed away this week at the age of 45.  I believe he had been battling cancer.   Sheridan had been a star at Rutgers, where he played linebacker.  He still holds the Rutgers single season tackles record with 161 and is #3 all-time in tackles at Rutgers with 389 he accrued from 1993-1997. He was a hs coach in his home state of NJ before moving moving to FL in 2007.
