COF Academy @ IMG

Recommended Posts

Hmmmmmmmm. This is COF Academy's first year in existence. They are a private school out of Ohio and the owner is modeling the Academy after IMG. He is trying to make them into a "football factory", his own words. Right out of the box the team is playing out of state teams that are way above COF's abilities. Apparently he feels that putting the team into the oven right away will breed toughness of character. By the way COF stands for Christians of Faith. They will have to practice their faith every second of this game tonight in order to not have a running clock in the first quarter I'm afraid. COF has lost their first 7 games by substantial margins. However, to their credit, they won their 8the game against a fairly decent team and lost their 9th game 14-12 against a fairly decent team. So, who knows?  :unsure:

I believe, but am not certain, that this game has been cancelled.

This Game has indeed been cancelled. COF decided last week not to make the trip. Game was scheduled to be played at St Stephens Episcopal Saturday Afternoon at 1:00

So, I guess, Hoover will be IMG's last game of the season. Is there some reason that visiting teams are not playing in IMG's stadium? That Manatee field is really pretty bad from what I can see of it.

Yeah they're hosting a big US Soccer World Cup Concacaf U-20 Qualifying tournament there over the next month. Preparation started last Saturday on the fields over there so they had to move the game to Manatee

    • These quarterbacks are considered by many to be amongst the top FL hs qb's from the days prior to 1980.  All went on to successful careers as qb's in college, 4 of them as collegiate All-Americans.  All but one played their college ball in FL.  Have fun trying to recognize some of the old school uniforms. What are their names, and where did each go to high school and college?      #1 pictured below #2 pictured below #3 pictured below #4 pictured below #5 pictured below #6 pictured below
    • 14-0 Vanguard, led by Daunte Culpepper, takes on defending state champion, 13-1 Bradenton Southeast and Peter Warrick.  What an ending!  So many great state title games in Daytona Beach back in the mid 90's.  
    • It is Antrel Rolle.  Here are some hs highlights below  
    • What has me most intrigued by this team?  I think they could very well have the top DE tandem in the state this year.  Elijah Roberts and Jabari Ishmael are going to be a handful for any offensive line out there.  Their coach has commented how facing those two each day in practice is really helping their o-line.  Roberts committed to the U last month.  Come next year, junior Ishmael will undoubtedly be one of the top defensive recruits in the state.  Everyone knows about the playmaking abilities of Henderson, who caught 3 TD's in last year's 8A title game in addition to winning a state 400m track title.  And Pitt commit Parrish is one of the better senior backs in the state. Though not highly recruited, dual-threat qb Brandon McDuffey showed what he could do in last year's title game, completing 5TD passes.  Watch for him and Henderson to light things up this year.  Will those players be enough to get them back to the title game?  Of course, a lot will depend upon the players without all of the stars that are not mentioned here.       Xzavier Henderson WR  https://247sports.com/Player/Xzavier-Henderson-46037461/ Henry Parrish RB  https://247sports.com/player/henry-parrish-46039386/ Elijah Roberts DE https://247sports.com/Player/Elijah-Roberts-46051699/ Jabari Ishmael DE https://247sports.com/Player/Jabari-Ishmael-46058192/ Brandon Coleman CB https://247sports.com/Player/Branden-Coleman-46058198/
    • Very strong on the front end, weak on the back end. Smart in the sense that banged up starters will have a chance to get healthy for the playoffs.
