I think this year, much like last year, STA is a team comprised of superior athletes (compared to most of the teams in the state or in the nation, for the most part) who all play on the field together at the same time. But these kids have not grown up together like the kids on a typical high school football team, so, in my humble opinion, they rely on talent, but not necessarily heart. And 14 times out of 15, that's good enough.
On the other hand, last year Lakeland had a team that included some exceptional athletes that were surrounded by very good athletes that all played together very well as a team. And regardless of how long some of the players had been at Lakeland, they really came together during their playoff run. With the number of new players, it's been hard to tell if that's happening again this year. The Armwood game will be my barometer. And, ultimately for both teams, injuries may very well play a big part in who gets to hold up the championship trophy in Daytona.
Assuming both teams are both reasonably healthy, I'm leaning towards the Polk County All-Star team defeating both the East Hillsborough County All-Star team and the Florida East Coast All-Star team in a close championship game.
