Is Lake Okeechobee/The Muck Losing Its Luster?

Recommended Posts

In 29 of the past 40 years, a team from Glades Day, Glades Central, Pahokee and/or Clewiston has been in a state final.  Below are the years in which these teams have not had at least one representative at the finals.  For this old-timer, this decade has been a really odd one, since I have become so accustomed to these teams competing for titles.  Except for Pahokee in 2016, that part of the state has been absent.  With the current assignments, will one of these teams be able to make it to a final over the next couple of years?  If Pahokee can get past Hawthorne in its region, it's liable to face Madison County in a 1A semifinal.  If Glades Central can win its region, it could be facing Carol City, Cardinal Gibbons or Booker T Washington in a 4A semifinal.  Sounds pretty tough.

I will admit that the Muck has lost some muster. Coaching change at Pahokee along with some transfer that moved back home should return them back to the top of 1A. Glades Day also has a coaching change, but are hiring from within, so maybe the younger energy can kick start them again. Pete Walker has returned to Clewiston and he usually gets them competitive. It’s really hard to say how good Glades Central will be. The schedule is favorable, but I don’t think they can play with the Teams in 4A region 4 right now.

    • 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
