Mr. Football

Recommended Posts

Does the best high school player always win?
Is winning a Mr. Football similar to the SI Cover or Madden Cover curse where your professional career is mediocre at best?
Is it even a good sign that you are going to be a star in college football?
We can't really judge anybody from 2013 on

Worth noting that the award is intended to honor the best high school player.   It's not a "most likely to succeed at the next level or the level after that" award.   Similar in some respects to the Heisman Trophy.  Both reward the player for what he did over the course of a particular season (and, in some cases, influenced by his career).  Let the recruiting services dishing out stars and the Mel Kipers of the world predict success at the next level.   Oh, by the way, they'll miss on several players too.  B)

    • 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
