7A Region 4 - Will the Raiders Reign Supreme?

Recommended Posts

4 of Region 4's playoff teams from last year return.  9 teams in the new region were in the playoffs last year(double asterisk below).  Only 3 of those teams got past the first round, though, and all three are in District 14.  STA's District 14 foes are a combined 4-41 against the Raiders since 1966 (Plantation won all 4).  Of all Broward County public schools, only one has more wins against the Raiders than Miramar(Miramar has beaten the Raiders 8 times since 1966), and that is Deerfield Beach.  Look for the Patriots to try to play the spoiler role, even though they fell far short this past season.  Atlantic was a bust last year, losing to Western in the first round of the playoffs, but could be the Raiders' biggest challenger this year, taking on Dwyer's role of the past.

The Raiders are arguably the most talent-laden team in the state, but the new reclassification made their path a bit tougher than in the past.  Team records from last season are listed below.

District 13

**Atlantic 10-1

Boca Raton 5-5

Olympic Heights 5-5

Ely  1-9

 

District 14

**St Thomas Aquinas 13-2

**Fort Lauderdale 9-3

**Plantation 10-2

S Plantation 0-10

 

District 15

**Miramar 6-5

**McArthur 9-2

Everglades 4-6

Cooper City 3-7

 

District 16

**Hialeah 9-2

**Doral Academy 9-3

Homestead 6-4

Mater Academy 6-4

**N Miami 6-5

Miami Beach 3-8

What place do you see ely finishing in that district their playing nothing but west palm schools now lol

2nd or 3rd...Boca is usually well coached, but light on talent. Heights should be a win...Ely should match Atlantic, talent wise, so that'll come down to in-game adjustments

U think ely will match Atlantic Who Many has viewd as one of 7a faves to win it all over the past two or 3 years ? Ely who has finished 1-9 2-8 respectively over the past two years? I’m not even sure ely has a HC yet if so I didn’t hear about it

Atlantic has a lot of good players, they are not this elite team that people think they are. #1 (H. Bryant) is a beast, everyone else is ok. They don’t beat themselves offensively (turnovers) and they don’t give up many big plays on defense. 

You have to make them a passing team (keep them out of short yardage) and when you have the ball, don’t get impatient and take the 8/9 play drive.

Teams that beat them (playoffs) all beat them the same way...PK should’ve beat them last year with 6 turnovers

You are talking about the same Atlantic that just beat Northwestern... The same Olympic Heights that just took Southridge to the brink.  You can not be serious.

I watched Ely play Saturday, they will be lucky to win a game.  They were down three scores in the first quarter.  Gave up three safeties in 10 minutes....
