Don't know that they won 30 or more straight, but those Pine Forest teams of 87 and 88 were they best I ever saw from North Florida, saw them twice in 87 and once in 88.........they would have to rank up there with all-time top 10 in my book.

Very good!  Those great Pine Forest teams won 31 straight between 1987-1989.

Baker had the record at one point for most consecutive wins. 

lost first two games of the season in 83 and one was a district game.  Only one team advanced back then.  Went on to win the district title in a shootout that year and along the way collected 3 state titles and 42 straight wins.  Lost to Walton in 1986.  Walton won the state title in 2A that year.  Walton's head coach was Jeff Webb who later coached Baker to the 1993 state title. 

 

side note: There was a young manager on that team that was part of the staff that stopped Lakeland's 53 game win streak.

And that would be Bad Bird! :)

    • These quarterbacks are considered by many to be amongst the top FL hs qb's from the days prior to 1980.  All went on to successful careers as qb's in college, 4 of them as collegiate All-Americans.  All but one played their college ball in FL.  Have fun trying to recognize some of the old school uniforms. What are their names, and where did each go to high school and college?      #1 pictured below #2 pictured below #3 pictured below #4 pictured below #5 pictured below #6 pictured below
    • 14-0 Vanguard, led by Daunte Culpepper, takes on defending state champion, 13-1 Bradenton Southeast and Peter Warrick.  What an ending!  So many great state title games in Daytona Beach back in the mid 90's.  
    • It is Antrel Rolle.  Here are some hs highlights below  
    • What has me most intrigued by this team?  I think they could very well have the top DE tandem in the state this year.  Elijah Roberts and Jabari Ishmael are going to be a handful for any offensive line out there.  Their coach has commented how facing those two each day in practice is really helping their o-line.  Roberts committed to the U last month.  Come next year, junior Ishmael will undoubtedly be one of the top defensive recruits in the state.  Everyone knows about the playmaking abilities of Henderson, who caught 3 TD's in last year's 8A title game in addition to winning a state 400m track title.  And Pitt commit Parrish is one of the better senior backs in the state. Though not highly recruited, dual-threat qb Brandon McDuffey showed what he could do in last year's title game, completing 5TD passes.  Watch for him and Henderson to light things up this year.  Will those players be enough to get them back to the title game?  Of course, a lot will depend upon the players without all of the stars that are not mentioned here.       Xzavier Henderson WR  https://247sports.com/Player/Xzavier-Henderson-46037461/ Henry Parrish RB  https://247sports.com/player/henry-parrish-46039386/ Elijah Roberts DE https://247sports.com/Player/Elijah-Roberts-46051699/ Jabari Ishmael DE https://247sports.com/Player/Jabari-Ishmael-46058192/ Brandon Coleman CB https://247sports.com/Player/Branden-Coleman-46058198/
    • Very strong on the front end, weak on the back end. Smart in the sense that banged up starters will have a chance to get healthy for the playoffs.
