The 5 Worst Teams in the State


Recommended Posts

I am not doing this to embarrass these teams.  Rather, I want to demonstrate that we have some programs that are really struggling.  Am sorry for the title, but could not think of anything that would make anyone feel any better about this.

In some cases, these programs have been struggling for many years and for a new coach to turn them into a winning program, or even an average one, will be quite the task.  Interestingly, 4 of the teams played in 7A this past season.  2 are from Hillsborough County and 2 are from Miami-Dade County.  

 

1. Hialeah Westland(7A) is 1-49 over the past 5 seasons.  In those 50 games, they scored a total of 73 points and gave up an average of 42 points per game.

2. Tampa Leto(7A) is 1-47 over the past 5 seasons and has lost 41 straight regular season games played on the field.  In those 48 games, Leto was outscored by its opponents by an average of 45-5.

3. Dunedin(5A) is 2-47 over the past 5 seasons and has lost 43 straight regular season games.  In those 49 games, Dunedin was outscored by its opponents by an average of 41-7.  

4. Miami Mourning(7A) is 4-42 over the past 5 seasons.  2 of those wins came against Westland Hialeah.  In those 46 games, Mourning was outscored by its opponents by an average of 38-5. 

5.(tie) Strawberry Crest(7A) is 4-46 over the past 5 seasons.  In those 50 games, Strawberry Crest was outscored by its opponents by an average of 33-7.

5.(tie) Oakland Park Northeast(6A) is 4-44 over the past 5 seasons   In those 48 games, Northeast was outscored by its opponents by an average of 35-9.

To keep with your theme of bad teams

What happened to Warner Christian?  they were one of the top small schools in the state about 8-10 years ago.  Just checked out maxpreps and they are the third worst ranked school in the state ahead of Florida deaf and blind and Avant Garde that canceled the season after like week 3.

There are a few of these smaller Christian schools in 2A whose records have really bounced around over the past 5-10 years.  Indian Rocks Christian is another example.  Don't know the first thing about them.  Would be interested to understand what is going on at these schools to cause their performance to fluctuate like that.

Long time Head coach Andy Price's last season was 2011. He went to Titusville for one year and has been at Spruce Creek ever since. He does the best with what he has. Athletic tuition assistance is not as plentiful as in years past. The schools birth was in the early court ordered integration of Florida public schools. That fueled their enrollment in the beginning years as much as the spiritual enlightenment. Never been a big fan, although I did see all three of their state championship final losses.

IRC had a long standing coach that retired or went elsewhere they year after their state title runner up.

They were also able to attract some good players at that time but that has changed with the turnover in staff and athletic department.

Warner Christian continued their deep playoff run after Andy Price left with Steve Allen as Head Coach. Although the Eagles did not make the state title game under Coach Allen, after he left the downhill slide started. Warner Christian became an undisciplined team who outathleted teams under Coach Allen's successor, and after that coach left, the bottom fell out. The Administration and de-emphasizing football might have also played a factor.

We need a Leto v Dunedin rivalry...call it The Battle for the Safety Harbor Bridge.  Someone is guaranteed at least one win each year.

I have been a supporter of that for a long time now... Its can be the Annual Falcon Bowl... The Red and White Game the we just don't want to go 0-10 again bowl.  Same Colors... Same Mascot... Same Record.

Okay. Never realized that. Armwood and Plant have been dominant for so long ...

Armwood started their dominance in 03.. before that not so much.. Were a regular 1st round playoff exit team.

Plant of course came soon after (Plant guys help me out was it 05?) but before Robert W got there the school was not very good for the most part.

Yeah, I remember Chamberlin and Wharton having good teams, as well as Jefferson and Hillsborough. Plant's dominance began with their first good QB in a long time who was a piece of work in his own way.

Peezy,  I believe Plant was 1-9 in 2003. Robert Weiner became the coach in 2004 and the team went 3-7. In 2005, Plant went 9-3. And in 2006, in Coach Weiner's third year as head coach, Plant went 15-0 and won the State Championship (with Marve as the QB).  I'd have to do some digging to give you the team's record for 2002 and earlier.

Leto and Dunedin are playing this upcoming fall in the Kickoff Classic! They are calling it the "Falcon Bowl: Battle for the Causeway Cup". I think it'll be good for both programs to play each other and be competitive.

Man I thought this was a joke... its a good idea.  Both teams should play each other every year... Winner will have a little morale boost.

    • Very true. The same applies to Orlando. But if you follow the game carefully, you know. In the Orlando area, it is not always active recruiting. Some programs tend to sell themselves. 
    • Youth football, I would agree that kickoffs will be eliminated within a year or two. High School Football might take a little longer. 
    • Though I will say at least SFL is more transparent with transfers, up here in North and Central FL many counties the transfers are never reported by the media, for example a team up here like Lee probably gets similar transfers to what STA would get in a normal year but most people wouldn't know that as the media up in Jacksonville never cover transfers so it would seem from outside that they are all homegrown talent but a lot of stuff happens behind closed doors in jacksonville only for the media to look the other way 
    • No doubt there is some stacking of teams in metro Orlando. But even with that, it is not as bad as down south. There it is totally out of hand and has been even before the era of open enrollment. That is because, coaches openly recruit the kids from the pee wee leagues. There are literally no guard rails. The population density which is greater than in Orlando makes it easy even if the kid has no reliable transportation. 
    • The popularity of 7v7 has increased the contact between the players, especially on the all-star teams that have been created. Just as players in the NBA have been trying to assemble super teams, these high schoolers are working at the same goal. A team I follow is much improved this season as the result of almost 10 transfers, with almost all performing important starting roles. The transfer rule has made this possible.
