5A Region 3 - A Look Ahead

Recommended Posts

This region could be a lot of fun this coming season.  It will feature 9 teams who made the playoffs last season and 5 teams that won district titles.  Playoff teams could look something like below.  Hardee, Booker and Jesuit all made the 5A-R3 playoffs last season.  Hardee was the #1 seed and Jesuit was #2.  Zephyrhills comes over from 5A Region 2, where they were a #2 seed.  They finished 11-1 on the season, getting knocked out by state finalist North Marion.   Rockledge comes over from 5A Region 4, where they were the #1 seed.  They finished 10-2 on the season, getting knocked out by American Heritage Plantation.  Lake Wales drops down from 6A after a successful 10-2 season, getting knocked out by Vanguard..  The Highlanders could have one of the most talented squads in Polk County this season.  Chamberlain was in 6A last year and was surely one of the hardest luck stories, finishing 8-2 but not making the playoffs.  They nearly won their district, giving Armwood all it wanted in a 20-14 loss.  Chamberlain looks to have some very talented players this season, including 6'5" WR Kaleb Long, one of the top 20 senior receivers in the state.   Eau Gallie and Sebring also move down from 6A after making playoff appearances last season.  And Merritt Island makes the move from 5A Region 4 after making a playoff appearance last season.

And they were even more talented last season.

The key for LWales OL development. This group is talented but young.
