Osceola

KOC vs. Lakeland

#2 Columbus (Miami)

#3 Cocoa

#9 Manatee

Osceola May be primed for a deep playoff run. If they stay healthy very well could challenge for state

No way I would put Lake Mary that high.  The young QB comes back and he is good but unless they got a bunch of transfers they lost about 15 starters to graduation.

 

I also don't see Olympia as a top 20 team but looking at their schedule they could win 7 games. 

 

My pick again this year is Lake Minneola.  They got like 12 transfers and no reason they shouldn't be at least 8-2.   They probably will blow it.

Lake Mary was my riskiest bet here. I don’t hedge, I try to do season-ending rankings week 0 and my gut says Lake Mary will be an outlier.

Lake Mary has talent at WR, will put up big points. I’m very high on their QB as I am McClain of Seminole. The two teams are very similar.

your picks.  I'm not saying I'm right.  We will know in a few weeks.  Lake Mary schedule is kind of challenging.  West Orange, Apopka, Seminole, Godby, Oviedo, Lake Brantley

Indeed. Growing up there, we always had access to both Tampa and Orlando news stations through basic TV (rabbit ears or cable). But, as you said above, this is all about the area the Orlando Sentinel deems worthy of their efforts/where most of their subscribers are from. Polk has the Ledger, so subscriptions to the Sentinel are quite low. I guess it just seems to make more sense to label the rankings "Orlando Sentinel coverage area rankings" :)

All true. For a long time Daytona Mainland played in the Metro Conference with all the big Orlando schools. Most of them only 50-60 miles away. With the growing bedroom communities springing up to the east of downtown coinciding with the Disney explosion, these closer new schools replaced some of the old rivals. Up till a decade or two ago the Orlando Sentinel was still selling thousands of daily newspapers on the Volusia county side of the St John's River bridge (30 miles from Daytona).

Playing without starting QB Chayil Garnett, Lakeland led Osceola 30-0 after one quarter, 36-0 in the 2nd quarter when the running clock kicked in. Playing with more backups as the running clock ran, Lakeland took the 2nd half kickoff and drove for a TD to go up 43-0. More backups came in and Osceola managed three TDs late to lose 43-20.
