8A Region 3 - Will the Bucks Win Again?

Recommended Posts

Playoff seedings for Region 3 next season could look something like below.  All of these teams made the playoffs last season with the exception of Park Vista and Boca Raton.  3 playoff teams from this region return this season (Deerfield, PB Central and Wellington).  Vero, Centennial and Treasure Coast all move over from 8A Region 2 and will all be district foes once again. 

This is a top-heavy region that lacks the depth of many other regions in the upper classes.  Region 3 lost Atlantic, Miramar, Piper, Plantation, and Western as part of the reclassification.  Vero Beach was the only perennial contender to move in to take their place.  That is great news for Deerfield Beach, who was one of the biggest winners of the reclassification in terms of having an easier playoff path.

Deerfield is loaded again this year and could be on a collision course for a 8A state semi rematch with Columbus.  Although folks like to tease DB for folding in the late rounds, it has been very successful at winning region titles.  Vero's playoff path now goes through teams from the south, like it did in the 2000's.  Vero has had mixed results historically against teams from Palm Beach and Broward.  It is 2-2 historically versus the Bucks, with DB winning the last 2 meetings in 2003 and 2004.  Vero may have to get through PB Central to get to the Bucks, though.

    • That has nothing to do with the topic.
    • Is that why 2 years ago they had no backup plan for a unexpected need to change the venue at the state finals?    
    • As much crap we give Ga. posters, the GHSA is always on point. The FHSAA knows what they need to do, but the problem with doing the right thing is it makes too much sense. 
    • 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.
    • I understand that but that's why I'm saying I'm against there being a deadline for schedules    We can't control that so many teams have no interest in playing us (even though many players on those teams will always talk crap on social media about being better than us and us being garbage yet are not gonna put money where their mouth is)   We are gonna need every second possible to find games    I think long term this is going to force us to have to travel to Central or South FL or even OOS in the future to get games scheduled since many in North Florida will not want to play them (in other words we will have to follow the blueprint of TCA schedule to find games which I'm personally fine with as it will get us a lot of respect for playing those kind of games)   I guess the same could be said locally for Lake City middle who since merging Richardson and LCMS has not been welcomed in their previous conference (even though both schools were in the conference when they were 2 separate schools) and have to now play South GA schools to get some games as they playing lowndes middle and Valdosta middle this fall     I get what you saying @gatorman-uf but I just wish some schools in North Florida had the same attitude that those Broward and Dade schools had of taking on any challenge and not worrying about wins or losses in the process because any game against top level competition will build toughness and gain respect
