Trinity Catholic 2019 Season

Recommended Posts

It's a little early but thought I would make some inquiries anyway. The Celtics started the 2018 season on a winning note and I thought they were going to continue winning and possibly get into the playoffs although I still didn't feel that they were ready to present any significant challenge in 3A. They had just gotten a new HC for the 2018 season and the 3rd HC in 5 years. As such, it looks as though things may be favorable for the team in 2019. They will be a Senior Laden team with more than 90% of the team being Srs and Jrs. They have what looks like a pretty good Jr QB Dominic Brinser, who had some playing time behind the starting QB in 2018. He has good size at 6'2" and 195. From his videos looks like he has good presence behind the line and is able to adjust on the fly. He will have 5 Sr WRs to throw to. Of course HC Andrew Thomas, did some great things at Trenton and with one season under his belt at Trinity should be able to get this previous championship team on the right path forward and maybe make some noise in 3A. That is what I am hoping, of course. :unsure:

Trinity Catholic Also got Big time offensive lineman Miller Lewis in for next season via transfer from vanguard. Kid is massive with his share of Big D1 offers as well. Andrew Thomas is building up the foundation over there and should have the Celtics back up at an elite level very soon

According to Coach he is looking at some good talent joining the team over the summer as I believe registration does not pick up until that time. Roster only at 31 now. Possibly 45 or more by KOC. The Celtics seem to have a so so schedule. Not too hard and not too easy. So, I'm thinking they will be able to make the playoffs this season. I think that the KOC at Dixie will be a good measuring stick as to how the Celtics will do.

How would a coach at a private school know that "good talent [is] joining the team over the summer" if the kids haven't registered yet?  :rolleyes:

Is vanguard supposed to be good this year?

Well, let's see. He's an experienced coach and he probably knows that teams always get more players over the summer and  it's just a matter of mathematics. More students registering more players on the team. Looking at some good talent is more of a hope than an affirmation. But, then again you're trying to insinuate an ulterior motive aren't you now? If that were the case why did the Celtics go 5-5 last season? ;)

Ok, let's get a couple of things straight.  

First, I have no idea why the team went 5-5 last year.  Unless I look it up on MaxPreps, I seriously doubt I could name a single one of their opponents from last season or this season.  

Second, I'm not trying to insinuate anything, much less an ulterior motive.  I was simply asking a question based on my understanding that high school football coaches (or any 'representatives of a school’s athletic interests' for that matter) are prohibited from talking with prospective students about playing football until the students are registered -- regardless of whether the school is public or private.  

If you had said something along the lines of "based on prior years, 10-15 new kids will show up over the summer and be playing on the football team by the time of the KOC," I wouldn't have said a word.  Or, if you had said something along the lines of "Rumor has it that 10-15 new kids will be joining the team over the summer," again, I wouldn't have asked the question that I did.   But, when you start your post out with "According to coach," and then follow it with "he's looking at some good talent joining the team," well, that doesn't leave much to the imagination, now does it?  I'll just assume that the coach is very optimistic and was just doing some out-loud, wishful thinking.

From what I have been hearing Vanguard is pretty loaded up and should have another deep run in them this year. Finally got a true QB this year in rising Sophomore to be Steve Curry. Trevonte Rucker and Leonard Manuel out at WR should make for big numbers for Curry this year and a stable of RBs. Fleming Island transfer Dewayne McBride should have a big year back their and the defense was very young last year so they're still pretty much intact

I plan on coming out to check out the Celtics a few times this year. Specifically the game against North Florida Christian on September 20th since that is Vanguard's bye week

I'm also a big Vanguard fan and have been out to their games on Celtic bye weeks and also when the Celtics are playing a team that  will not be as competitive as the others. Since Farmer took over the Knights have become some what of a powerhouse in Florida HS football. Moving to 5A from 6A should make them even more prolific. Wish the Celtics would start playing Vanguard again like in the past.

Does anyone know if Celtic QB Dominac Brinser transferred to North Marion? He was on the Celtic's roster in early May and now he is on the North Marion roster. I thought he was being primed as the starting QB for Trinity this season and he looks good in his Hudl videos. :unsure:

Isn't HC Andrew Thomas from Dixie County? DC's HC just left for a Georgia job, any chance he would go back home?

Andrew Thomas has been HC of Trinity Catholic in Ocala since the beginning of the 2018 season. Prior to that he was HC of Trenton for  5 years. Seasons 2016 and 2017 he was HC of T.R. Miller HS in Alabama before transferring to Trinity Catholic.

Andrew Thomas was the Dixie County offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator under longtime Dixie County and now retired head coach Brent Wilkerson from 2001 to 2010 before taking over at Trenton in 2011 and winning state titles in 2013 and 2015 while compiling a impressive record of 60-5 over his 5 years at the school

Actually I meant HC of Trenton not Dixie County. Sorry. My mistake.

    • I just finished watching all the games from 1984 I could find on youtube. Too bad I didn't see the thread until now. The 1984 Gators would have taken down BYU and probably Washington as well had they been eligible and had a playoff then.
    • Well, I get what you are saying. I suppose the messages could be, easily, even more vague and still convey the point. The coach could mention how great such and such player was the year before and how they'll miss him. Of course, the player can easily head to hudl, rivals, the team web page etc and see the players they had and lost. Really, a coach doesn't need to say anything. Everyone knows if Team A had a senior QB the previous season. Terry and Brady Dean knew STA graduated Curt Casteel and would have a new, unproven QB.  Mostly, we're talking about how to practically-and constitutionally- monitor such communications. Can-in fact, should-governing agencies be requiring teenagers to turn over their personal cell phones and private conversations whenever they wish? What's the justification? That maybe they've talked with their buddies about football? What precedent would that set? Should governing agencies make you and I hand over our cell phones to review all of our private conversations because maybe we discussed business or something? Or because someone commented on Twitter that so-and-so messaged someone? Where there would be standing to do check cell phones would be if a coach texted a kid that didn't want to be texted.  But, as long as the parties involved in the conversations wish for those conversations to remain private, they can and should remain private. It's hardly the end of the world. If a kid is willing to commute further every day to attend school B, and the school has room, the kid should be able to go to School B. Even if he's good at football.
    • Kudos but dwn hea ain’t none of dat lol if you went to ely we don’t Fwu fam No cap. & vice versa ain’t no brotherly love bih. We want to aihh to suffer going 0-10 every year & losing by 80 when you play us. Lol that’s just how it is. 
    • Exactly! I hope you guys win all of your games except when u play us lol. 
    • Although I can make a distinction in the communications between two players from different schools and the communications between a coach from one school and a player from another school, the FHSAA rules don't seem to make that distinction.  In your example above, it appears to me that the coach crosses over the "how's it going?" line when he starts talking about needing the very position played by the kid he's 'talking' to.  That looks a lot like recruiting to me, subtle as it may be.  And, at least under the current FHSAA rules, it's illegal.  Right?  I could be wrong, but isn't this exactly what STA just got in trouble for?  College coaches aren't allowed to communicate with kids who play for other teams, are they (at least not until they enter the portal)?  Pro teams aren't allowed to communicate with guys who play for other teams, are they?  I believe that's called tampering (at least in one of the professional leagues).   Why should high school be different?  Do you think high school coaches should be able to reach out to kids from other schools and expressly encourage them to switch schools?    I know this whole thing gets pretty complicated and I know the slope got a little slippery with the changes the legislature made a few years back.  It occurs to me that the FHSAA is simply doing what it can to keep high school sports from turning into the wild, wild west.  If that's not what the majority of the high schools in Florida want, they have the power to change that.  Right?
