The 99 Worst HS Teams in Florida

Recommended Posts

This is one list you don't want to make.  All have won 17 or fewer games over the past 5 seasons.  Interestingly, the highest proportion of such teams is in 8A.  And 12/20 8A teams are in south FL.  I heard some talk this past season about parity in 8A.  That may be true in the upper echelon of 8A.  But there is a huge disparity between the "rich" and the "poor" in that class.  

We have a high proportion of really good teams in FL.  But what some fail to recognize is that we have a relatively high proportion of really weak teams(at least by Florida standards).  We have some 1A schools that I am confident could put a running clock on some much larger schools on this list.

Some of these teams may simply be having a bad stretch.  But a number of these teams have deeply ingrained  "cultures of losing" that have developed over many years and that are going to be extremely difficult to get turned around.  Telling them to simply "try harder" is likely not going to be enough.  And with a number of newer schools slated to come on line in future years,  the number of struggling programs in Florida may increase.  ...especially if we put them in the larger classes without an opportunity to allow the program to get traction.
