No more 3 or 8 team districts... I am liking this.  There will of course be some complainers lol

 

Only ones complaining are ones who didn't get a favorable district

 

Only complaint I see is legitimate is tca being forced into 3A 

 

The reason they moved up was because the Duval schools are scared of Trinity and they wanted to limit travel

They'll be back in the finals tho and I'm sure they can schedule some of the team's they've been playing while in 5A. 4A north is gonna be between Cocoa and Bolles for the most part. But 4A south is gonna be crazy especially with region 4.....region 4 is gonna be a battle. There will be at least 4 teams in the playoffs from region 4 at a minimum.

And they actually split up the 3 headed monster of Miami's 6A district. STA is gonna have their hands full in the semifinals.  I'm actually happy with what they did.

 Looks like the only big programs that got added to Region 3 in 7A are Manatee and Dwyer(who they had to face anyway when in Region 4).  And now STA has Miramar and Atlantic in Region 4, which may add some challenge.  STA still manages to miss all of the better Miami-Dade schools in the playoffs...one day, just maybe

They cannot let people move. Make them stay in the district they are in.

I was told no appeals.  Only one that stood out to me is Haines City and Sarasota Riverview in a district lol... Nice little 120 mile stroll.

FHSAA finally listening to public schools over private for once? That’s a Fred Sanford moment!!! 

 

 

NOW FIX THE FLAWED POINT SYSTEM!!!!

 

I love the reclass myself!!! But I’m sure FHSAA didn’t put much research into the reclass and just moved schools around like a deck of cards.

Can someone explain why is Madison in region 3? Why not put them in 2? I had this question last go round.

When I look at this map, I see Madison fitting better into 3 than 2 in my opinion. Additionally, if you pull Madison out of Region 3 and put them in Region 2, Region 3 only has 8 teams instead of 9, Region 2 goes to 10 team. That is unbalanced when purely regional teams are determining who makes it.

I think the FHSAA did a good job, I will only disagree with one thing on their FAQ

"A: After traveling the state this past year, the consensus the FHSAA heard from its athletic directors and coaches was that they wanted an equal number of teams by classification, an even number of teams in each district and region and no three-team districts. Moving schools would go against that sentiment and would create uneven classifications, regions or districts. The staff has thoroughly reviewed the assignments and do not see any schools that are geographically isolated that would require movement to another classification (FHSAA Policy 12). To maintain the wishes of our constituents, the FHSAA will not be accepting appeals."

I do not think they lived up to the part where are equal number of teams per classification considering 1A-4A have 40ish teams and 5A-8A have 80 teams. Again, the FHSAA would have done better to remove one class and then do equal size classes. Instead of the current 1/3 and 2/3 rule they follow.

Which team is closer to Jefferson? Madison or Taylor? Region 4 has 10 teams... So put the north most region 4 team, Trenton, in region 3, and move Madison to region 2. That moves the 10 team region from 4 to 2 and leaves regions 1, 3, and 4 with 9 teams.

    • No problem, and you will find a lot of great perspectives on this message board Silver King.
    • Schools can afford to temperature check each player before every practice and game. All you need are a couple of the no-contact thermometers. If a player exceeds a pre-determined temperature, he sits. If he exhibits other symptoms, test the kid and have him sit out until he gets his results back. If he has covit-19, he quarantines until he tests negative. Same procedure for coaches. These kids have been playing football with each other since this virus shut down the schools; the shutdown only gave them more time to socialize and practice together, and they weren't being tested. If you shut football down, these kids will still play without supervision.
    • There are businesses all over this country that temperature check their employees each day before they can go to work. They require the employees to use hand sanitizer frequently and they practice social distancing in their establishments. Schools can do the same in the classroom, including requiring masks at all times. They can even put a plastic shield on each teacher's desk.if the kids are going to contract the virus, it will most likely be in the classroom from another kid that may be asymptomatic. Football players have been practicing in groups without coaches since schools were closed in March. They have not been wearing masks or practicing social distancing. They have been playing informal 7v7 games against other groups, all without adult supervision, and still we haven't heard of any serious outbreaks among teenagers. With supervised practices and games, adults can assure that players on the sidelines social distance and wear masks if deemed necessary. They don't need fans in the stands, but if limited to immediate family members, social distancing in the stands would not be difficult. These kids are going to play football this Fall; it can be organized and controlled by adults or they'll play pickup games among themselves, but they're going to play. If our government leaders and politicians can justify thousands of people protesting in the streets, shouting and spraying fluids all over the place, they can surely figure a way for 22 teenagers to play a game of football on a 40 by 100 yard football field. Take the politics out of this and let the kids play.
    • Wait there has actually been North Florida teams throwing TDs in a state championship? Must have been before I was born because for as long as I can remember whenever a North team makes the finals it usually ends with a SFL team steamrolling them lol
    • Too bad we don't have anyone on the forum from north FL.
