He forgot to add "Please respect my decision."   ;)

...thanks to only some of his teams and coaches....and no careful consideration or consultation with his family?  What is this world coming , too? :rolleyes:

Seriously, some of us should get together and write a book for the kids on how to properly announce their transfers and other earth-shattering news.  LOL

I'm sorry, I shouldn't poke fun at kids. But I'll admit I laugh at these things because if I ever thought myself important enough to "announce" such things to the world in high school, my mama would have knocked me down a peg or two right quick.   :lol:

ESPN turned signing day into a made for TV special. We have seen a pro do it (LeBron's Decision). Why should be surprised that teenagers emulate what they see on sports TV. It is not surprising then teenagers and twitter allow themselves to their 15 minutes of stardom before they become anonymous person in the crowd again.

I blame a culture that says the only person that matters is yourself. A culture where building something is seen as a sucker's choice when there are is already a well paved path for them. We no longer just have helicopter parents who hover around at practices. We have parents who mow down every obstacle in the way of their child so that their child never has to struggle for success. 

Even those who seem to make sacrificial choices sometimes seem to only to do it so they get ahead in life. I am amazed by the number of Teacher for America and PeaceCorps individuals who seem obsessed with the idea of what Teach for America and Peace Corps or working on a political campaign will do for their job prospects rather than the good they are doing.

I would like to announce the following: After careful consideration with my dog, I have decided to decommit from my wife.  I would like to thank her for all she has taught me about women, which will come in handy now that I am transferring my services to another woman who offers much greater "educational opportunities":rolleyes:   Please respect my decision and pray for me, because she gonna kill me when she finds out.

In all honesty, I think the reason so many kids do this is because they know that it’s the only chance they have to do it. How many high school kids get that big “decision” moment? Only a handful. This lets kids feel special. 

 

With that said, I can’t believe how soft society has gotten that we allow kids to do things like that. I mean, it’s ridiculous. Thank you, State of Florida, for showing kids that you’re allowed to just up and tweet your way out of any situation that you don’t like. Should serve these kids well...

I'm all about getting kids to feel special...but it seems we are teaching the kids to rely upon external validation for everything...instead of focusing on feeling good about themselves because they feel an inherent sense of value... regardless of what the rest of the world says.

Terry Parker is 14-41 over the past 5 years.  Like they can really afford to be losing kids.

 

Nope they can't afford it but they weren't exactly heading for a strong year but it goes back to what I said in a previous thread about Duval

 

The hot schools at the time feed off other schools while some schools are sailing further away from them

 

Rich get richer and poor get poorer

    • Apparently.  This article gives more of a bio: https://www.tallahassee.com/story/sports/preps/2019/08/19/new-taylor-county-football-coach-belser-quits-after-player-protest/2045996001/ Ini  2004-5, he had 7-13 record as head coach at Rickards.    Later, he was the HC at an Alabama high school (Hillcrest-Evergreen) that went 8-32.  Most recently, in 2017, he "lead" Tanner High to a 3-8 record.  It appears to be a combination of an abrasive personality, a poor performance by his teams on the field, and his habit of leaving when the going gets tough.   
    • too bad your schedule stinks. looks like only 2 good teams. Hillsborough and Plant will be losses. The rest of the schedule is a cake walk. Chamberlain might make you sweat.  Sucks to have all this potential, and your coached didnt find you guys a showcase game against a powerhouse. 
    • im not understanding. Is he unpopular because he is too tough and demanding? Or is he verbally and mentally abusive Varsity Blues style?
    • St. Frances, Md  De La Salle, CA Miami Carol City  IMG Academy   Columbia  Armwood Raines  Vero Beach  Miami Northwestern  Lakeland 
    • if you are in the Central Florida area and want to see some out of state teams, here is your chance. The Disney event might not be the Disney event anymore. This is the 2nd year the games are being played on random high school sites, and one team mentioned they were going to Universal and not Disney. Anyways, here is the schedule, dates, times and locations. Thursday August 23rd Northern Valley Regional High School at Demarest, NJ vs Windermere Prep School, FL 7:30pm  at Austin Tindall Sports Complex Stadium   --- Friday August 24th Ridley High School, PA vs Cooper City High School, FL 4:30pm JV 7:30pm Varsity at Austin Tindall Sports Complex Stadium --- Friday August 24th Glen Ridge High School, NJ vs Titusville High School, FL 7:00pm at Austin Tindall Sports Complex Field #6 --- Thursday August 29th Chatfield High School, CO vs Jensen Beach High School, FL 4:30pm JV 7:30pm Varsity at Celebration HS --- Thursday August 29th  Golden High School, CO vs St Cloud High School, FL 4:30pm JV 7:30pm Varsity at St Cloud HS --- Friday August 30th Shiloh Christian School, AR vs Moore Haven High School, FL 7:30pm Varsity at Celebration HS --- Saturday August 31st Shiloh Christian School, AR vs Superior (American) Collegiate Academy, FL 9:00am JV at Windermere HS Stadium  --- Friday September 20th St Mary's Ryken High School, MD vs East Ridge High School, FL 7:30pm Varsity at East Ridge HS
