The Muck has become a hard place to coach for a number of reasons:

1) small town bs politics. I had a buddy who applied for some jobs down there but he didn’t have the “right” resume. The dude coached at the D1 level and at a state championship winning program! But he wasn’t from around the there

2) lack of resources. Not only is the area poor but you aren’t around a lot of money like in the urban areas

3) tough administrations. It’s state championship or bust in 2 years, you can’t take the time to install your culture or anything...you gotta win immediately.

That's sounds about right. If you don't win States in 2 or 3 years you're fired!

I’m sure there won’t be an articles about Assistant Coaches being released, but it did happen at GC. Walkes was relieved at Pahokee on yesterday. I’m guessing the media haven’t got a hit about it yet.

Naw man  homie telling the truth

Just saying my thoughts on the issues with the program. It really could be a great job with a patient administration. Tons of great athletes, big time football culture, and a very solid alumni base. Just gonna take the right guy to get it back to where it belongs

Pahokee has a patient administration. they stuck with B. Thompson through some rough years. Walkes, probably would still be the coach if he didn't embarrasses himself and the school/program during the Cocoa game and it seemed as if the team was just drifting with the wind. Glades Central is the program with the short leash. It seams they have 2 seasons to win or some changes will be made.

I think PK will have a new HC and OC from what I've heard, mostly from players. Haven't spoken with any admin or adults associated with the program...so don't quote me!

Walkes was released on Friday. It’s up to the next coach to determine the Assistants. So it make be more than the OC that’s gone.

    • The Indianapolis Colts have been sponsoring the Indiana high school football playoffs for the past 10 years and the finals are played at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Their 6 state final games typically average about 7000 attendees per game.   Attendance at our 8 finals in Florida typically average less than 4000 per game.   http://www.maxpreps.com/news/7i8wgZirhkOi1psIZp8qkA/ihsaa-football-brackets,-stat-leaderboards-and-rankings.htm As you'll see from their website, the Colts are very involved with youth and high school football in the community.  I've looked on the websites for the Dolphins, Jaguars and Bucs and don't see anything like this.  It's disappointing we have 3 pro teams in the hs football hotbed of Florida yet the game doesn't seem to get as much support as a state with 1 pro team and a lot less hs players/teams.  https://www.colts.com/community/highschoolfootball/
    • Hopefully we beat Vero this year, I’ll be at that game without a doubt. Is Columbia playing you guys next year?
    • Is there a really that much of a difference once you are in the 1000s range? I mean these teams are playing completely different in completely states with probably very little overlap. Promoters of high school football here in Florida have tried some of the marquee match-ups with 2-3 games on a Saturday. Stadiums don't get filled. The biggest shame is that with 3 professional football teams in the state (4 if you want to count the Orlando Apollos), that more isn't done in the community to promote football as a whole. The NFL should be requiring empty stadiums to be used early in the season for big Saturday promotion of games. Make the games free. 

      Imagine 2 games on a Friday Night and 3 games on a Saturday at TIAA Field (Jax), Raymond James (Tampa), and Hard Rock Hotel (Miami) with 10 of the biggest teams in the areas or criss cross areas. Imagine a Trinity Christian facing off against Mandarin in the night time game, or Miami Northwestern vs Miami Central, or Plant vs Lakeland. Needless to say, professional sports sometimes stink at being ambassadors of the game on a community level. 
    • Ouch!   Not sure I'd want to be sitting at that dinner table right now.  
    • Would that be Jesse Hester (FSU) ?  If so, I remember him well.....great ball player
