Hester and Jackson are still working to get NCAA eligible. Washington's situation was due to the ACL injury and lack of proper guidance. FCS schools have offered (actually visited Alabama A&M), but he hasn't made a commitment to any.

I want to be careful here, because I don''t know anything about "Hester and Jackson" other than what I've read on this board and the linked film that I've watched.   I don't know who their coaches are or what their coaches have or have not done.   I do know there are some schools and coaches that place a premium on the academic side of the NCAA eligibility process.  Other schools and coaches don't.  Personally, I think one of the greatest services that a high school football program/coach can provide to an athletically-talented kid is to start working with him in the 9th or 10th grade to explain the eligibility process and then track the performance and status of the kids as they work their way through high school.  It is an absolute waste for a kid to have P5 talent, but not be able to get offers because of bad grades and/or inability to satisfy the minimum standards necessary to become an NCAA student-athlete.

Hester is actually the son of the Head Coach. So......

    • I was thinking the same thing until I re-read the question . . . "teams that would make the playoffs today if it was the end of the season."  Right now, as you stated, Plant is the ninth highest team in 8A Region 2 (up from 11th a week ago).  They still have to jump at least one more team (without getting jumped themselves) to make the playoffs.   But, if the playoffs started today, Plant would be sitting home.   Fortunately, four of the teams above Plant in the PRI rankings play each other this week (Riverview plays Lennard and Kissimee Osceola plays Lake Nona).   If I've done my math right,  two of those teams will pick up a loss this week.    From Plant's standpoint, they'll probably be rooting for the higher ranked teams (Lennard and Osceola) to win. 
    • Defense is the best part about Vero this year but I don't know if Vero can put up 5 TDs on FPC but I did predict a few weeks ago that it'll be closer than what the records show for both teams.....two reasons for that is one, Vero's offense is iight this year and if u stop em, you'll have a defense struggle with them and second, FPC have played good defense this year and have been in close games with everyone on their schedule.... My prediction Vero scores 21 or 28 on FPC  
    • You bring back districts in lower classes and you lose a bunch of teams back to independent within a few years.  A few teams right now are in the playoffs or on the edge that were independent the better part of last 8 years because they were forced to play teams they just couldn't handle and kids were leaving.  Catch 22. Does the FHSAA want to lose people again? It is also not as simple as building a program up to compete either in today's modern day of transfers. Average small schools with 25-35 kids can't afford even 2 senior transfers because they sucked one year. 
    • Agreed.  Fletcher playing well with 5 straight wins but i agree, if u are a playoff team, you have to win both. 
    • Potentially, every team the "could" possibly win the state championship is every team.  This is why we have a regular season. The teams that "can" win a state championship are the ones that deserve to be in the playoffs; based on results of the regular season.
