1994 4A State Title Game - Santa Fe vs Lake Wales

Recommended Posts


1994 was an unusual year for the FHSAA state series.  It has been 25 years since a south FL school did not win a state title.  

Ah...this era was the glory days for Polk County, when they had multiple teams challenging for state titles.

#Fact

That LWales team was absolutely loaded. They were bigtime favorites in this game and absolutely blew it.:(

Wide right? Or was it left

Bittersweet ending 17, I remember.

That game will forever be remembered down here.  The pile up on the far side; the discussion, the photo. 

I was a student at Webber at the time.  I had a Saturday morning class and that game was the talk the next day.

    • The video is a couple of years old at this point, but my buddies and I have watched it as instinctive of what a coach should generally do on 4th down. It is also the reason why I loved watching Georgia Tech and Paul Johnson's triple option because of how aggressive he was in trying for it on 4th down (except last year).

      A good example of a lack of aggressiveness in hurting the team was the PItt-Penn State game. Pitt on the 1 yard line decides to kick the FG rather than try a 4th attempt from the 1 yard line. The kicker misses the kick and Pitt never really recovers. Pitt was down 7 at the time with 5 minutes left. 

      Interestingly, Denver went for 2 when they were down 1 at home with 30 seconds left and got it and Chicago drove 40 yards in 31 seconds to allow former Gator Eddie Pineiro to hit the game winning 53 yard field goal. 
    • Sorry Jimmyb, Merritt Island will be will be Vero's 56th regular season win in a row !
    • Many schools, including a couple of elite SEC programs, have claimed "fake" titles over the years, Bama being one of them. I'm a long time Gator fan, but I'm not delusional enough to believe the Gators could beat the UCF team of the past three years.
    • If you've ever watched the Paul Feinbaum Show on SEC Network, in reality the Bama Fan Club Show, you would have seen a very upset host and most of his followers condemned UCF, and they continue to condemn UCF today. Kirk Herbstreet on ESPN mocked UCF at the time, but doesn't anymore. On College Football Final (ESPN), Joey Galloway stated just yesterday that UCF deserves to be in the conversation for the CFP.  
    • I don't know why I typed 05 06.  I actually meant 96 but it was 98 I remember that now because we played them that year LOL...  yeah it was ugly.
