Tim Shifflet at Winter Park is one of the most tenured coaches in the Orlando area.  I don't believe Winter Park has been overly loaded with big name talent the past few years, yet has managed to be very competitive.  I think as long as they have a reasonable amount of talent this year, there is no reason to believe Coach Shifflet will not have them competitive again.  

Winter Park does have one of the top cornerbacks in the state...Ethan Pouncey...and a 6'6" pocket passer named Casey Case, who saw playing time last year as a junior.   

Ethan Pouncey had surgery at beginning of season and will miss this season: he has committed to Texas. WP's DB's, an expected major strength of this team, have been hit with a load of injuries this season. They were missing all four starters in a recent game. Casey Case is a very good QB, committed to Buffalo. He has several very good receivers and the top junior RB in Central Florida, Dakota Mitchell who has just committed to UF. This team had tremendous potential going into the season. Besides the injuries, WP has been bitten by the turnover bug a couple of games this season, including two fumbles for TD's in a single game. When they've been good, they've been very, very good and could be dangerous if they can find their way into the playoffs.
