Statewide 7v7 tournament

Recommended Posts


Looks like Vanguard is the top team, with Columbia and Steinbrenner battling it out for bridesmaid honors.  A lot of north/central Florida teams . . . not exactly a "statewide" tournament (based on teams participating).  

What's the scoring system?  I see a few odd 7 on 7 scores.  I'm guessing traditional scoring with 3 points for an INT?

So far Columbia has defeated East Ridge, Palatka, and St Cloud

 

Still have to face Celebration, Pk Yonge and Vanguard in pool play

Aside from Vanguard and Columbia, the field is pretty weak.

There was several SFL teams supposed to participate (AHD, AHP, Dwyer, Fort Lauderdale) but they didn't make the trip it seems

hush.  This is for the state championship  :rolleyes:

It's a open tournament, if the teams that are the "badasses" decide they don't care enough to show up that's their own problem

 

Besides if you look at list you may notice the numbers are higher from last year, the event growing by the year

Congrats to the winner.  You can be like UCF and self claim a championship.

Won't need to "self claim"

 

It's a recognized tournament with the FHSAA and they do hand out a trophy to the winner 

 

And UCF did the smartest thing they could have, they got publicity which they can use to join a better conference in the near future which will actually give them a shot at a championship since we all know the playoff committee is too far up the asses of the power 5 schools that no school outside of those 5 conferences will ever make playoffs no matter how tough a schedule they do or how many times they go undefeated

Lmao!!! I feel where you're coming from because quite a few guys don't even play for their school during 7on7s, the play on all star teams.

That event keep growing and growing, that's pretty cool.

It has for sure

 

Even though 7v7 results are not concrete representations of what would happen in the fall it is benefitiary

 

Gives QBs and WRs more time to work on timing in the off-season and can contribute to better passing mechanics through constant repetition

    • I just finished watching all the games from 1984 I could find on youtube. Too bad I didn't see the thread until now. The 1984 Gators would have taken down BYU and probably Washington as well had they been eligible and had a playoff then.
    • Well, I get what you are saying. I suppose the messages could be, easily, even more vague and still convey the point. The coach could mention how great such and such player was the year before and how they'll miss him. Of course, the player can easily head to hudl, rivals, the team web page etc and see the players they had and lost. Really, a coach doesn't need to say anything. Everyone knows if Team A had a senior QB the previous season. Terry and Brady Dean knew STA graduated Curt Casteel and would have a new, unproven QB.  Mostly, we're talking about how to practically-and constitutionally- monitor such communications. Can-in fact, should-governing agencies be requiring teenagers to turn over their personal cell phones and private conversations whenever they wish? What's the justification? That maybe they've talked with their buddies about football? What precedent would that set? Should governing agencies make you and I hand over our cell phones to review all of our private conversations because maybe we discussed business or something? Or because someone commented on Twitter that so-and-so messaged someone? Where there would be standing to do check cell phones would be if a coach texted a kid that didn't want to be texted.  But, as long as the parties involved in the conversations wish for those conversations to remain private, they can and should remain private. It's hardly the end of the world. If a kid is willing to commute further every day to attend school B, and the school has room, the kid should be able to go to School B. Even if he's good at football.
    • Kudos but dwn hea ain’t none of dat lol if you went to ely we don’t Fwu fam No cap. & vice versa ain’t no brotherly love bih. We want to aihh to suffer going 0-10 every year & losing by 80 when you play us. Lol that’s just how it is. 
    • Exactly! I hope you guys win all of your games except when u play us lol. 
    • Although I can make a distinction in the communications between two players from different schools and the communications between a coach from one school and a player from another school, the FHSAA rules don't seem to make that distinction.  In your example above, it appears to me that the coach crosses over the "how's it going?" line when he starts talking about needing the very position played by the kid he's 'talking' to.  That looks a lot like recruiting to me, subtle as it may be.  And, at least under the current FHSAA rules, it's illegal.  Right?  I could be wrong, but isn't this exactly what STA just got in trouble for?  College coaches aren't allowed to communicate with kids who play for other teams, are they (at least not until they enter the portal)?  Pro teams aren't allowed to communicate with guys who play for other teams, are they?  I believe that's called tampering (at least in one of the professional leagues).   Why should high school be different?  Do you think high school coaches should be able to reach out to kids from other schools and expressly encourage them to switch schools?    I know this whole thing gets pretty complicated and I know the slope got a little slippery with the changes the legislature made a few years back.  It occurs to me that the FHSAA is simply doing what it can to keep high school sports from turning into the wild, wild west.  If that's not what the majority of the high schools in Florida want, they have the power to change that.  Right?
