Venice vs Plant predictions

Recommended Posts


If the last couple of KOC's are any indication, this will be a high-scoring affair and likely a close game.  Both teams have some talented players.  I'll be interested to see how quickly the WR transfer can pick up on Venice's offense and whether he and the QB have been able to get their timing down.  The teams appeared pretty evenly matched when they played each other in 7 on 7 this summer, but I realize that doesn't mean a whole lot once you put the pads on.  I'm hoping the rains stop by kickoff, but this is a game that could definitely be impacted, if not decided, by turnovers. 

Only because VIF channeled his inner-Vince Dooley and picked Plant to win, I'll go the other way and give the nod to Venice to eek out the victory.  :D

Plant plays on Turf and its a good thing otherwise this game would be cancelled.  It could still be cancelled because South Tampa is a major flood zone area and if this rain continues those roads will not be passable.

Venice is a better team than Plant  . . . at least right now (and perhaps they will be all season . . . with Plant moving up to 8A this year, we'll never really know).  Venice looked like they already had played a handful of games.   They've got a big O-line and a couple of QB's that Venice has been able to plug into their system.  They've got a talented RB (Bowman Lite) and, as a result of the transfer a couple of weeks ago, they have two D1 prospect receivers -- both have good height, good hands and good speed.  If an opposing defense doesn't have two very good corners, Venice is going to show you which one isn't good early and often.   A couple of their TDs were big plays/busted coverage plays.  But, I could see the new WR getting frustrated if he matches up against a decent DB and the back judge ref doesn't allow him to use his arms to create space once the ball's in the air. 

That said, Venice is going to have to outscore good teams, which they probably will do.  The Indian defense was good, but not outstanding.  Plant managed to put up 30 points, but at least one of the TDs was the result of a turnover and a short field.  And, granted 2s were playing 2s, but Plant left points on the board at the very end of the game when their drive stalled deep in Venice territory. 

Again, Venice was the better team and they certainly deserved the win.  I'd pencil in Venice and STA in the state semis for the right to get beat by Lakeland in the finals.

First Vero has to get by American Heritage Delray who just trashed Dwyer 35-0 

Well Dwyer may not even be a top 10 team in their county this year so I'm not entirely shocked that AHD beat them

Do you think Venice will win this week?

Where is the game being played?

If it's @Venice they have better than decent chance. IMG has a tendacy to start slow.

The Indians would also need  a high scoring wide open game and not a low scoring grind.

    • It is possible this wasn’t a typical high school football game.  back in those times there were “town teams”. Teams of random people who organized to make a team and would use the name where they we’re from. The YMCA would organize teams and play high schools and college teams.  
    • Sadly, I believe that this attitude that you described exists in many Police Departments across the U.S.  These public servants need to learn to keep their personal feelings and biases at the front door. Maybe there can be some kind of reform after all of these incidents recently.
    • It is Lomas Brown, arguably one of the best offensive lineman to ever come out of Florida.  He played for great coach Buddy Goins at Miami Springs High.  He ultimately went on to become a Gator Great and had a fantastic career in the NFL.  Believe it or not, that photo shows of the best lines in south FL about 40 years ago.  Miami Springs was a powerhouse back then.   Coach Goins was at Miami Spgs for many years.  He had a team in 1993 that went undefeated and gave an absolutely loaded Southridge team(who eventually won the 5A state title) it's toughest game of the playoffs.  Imagine, 5A was the largest class then and Goins dressed out less than 30 kids on his team.   
    • Who is he? Where did he play in high school? Where did he play in college? What NFL team drafted him? 
    • I think this year in general the transfer numbers statewide will be much lower than in most years however it's likely once things go back to normal things will return to what they were before because it does feel like many people out there are already looking past covid 19   Notice how everything in social media and news stations for over 2 months was about virus but as soon as the protests starting breaking out the coverage on the virus went to back burner, it does seem the media in general ran that coverage as long as they could before giving up, now protests and looting is all the news is focused on but covid isn't gone, it just isn't being treated as the same level of importance in the news anymore and it will be same way with football     People will appreciate having it back but then after a few months they will get complacent and go back to what it was before, it is what it is and it's what the game has turned into
