Oviedo and Hagerty are in Seminole County. Keonte Coffie of Oviedo was last year's Central Florida Player of the Year as a junior. This past week against Colonial HS, he rushed for 415 yards and 5 TD's.

Use to be big in the 90s and early 2000s too when they were in the same district along with Rockledge.

They were in the same district then too. Classes only went to 4A. Cocoa was 4A some, during that era. Back then Palm Bay was the newest school in the county, to make up only 10 HS in the county.

I wish Vero would play more Brevard teams good competition and in the past had good rivalries with Palm Bay and Merrit Island when they shared the same districts.

Totally agree. Always a good game to see was the Vero - Palm Bay game.

Interesting bringing up Fort White vs Santa Fe with the battle for the paddle

As a side note that rivalry was recently brought back after a hiatus but interesting enough the paddle was not on the line since the rivalry was brought back

How would the Paddle not be on the line if the two played a football game? I mean, I get if two teams don't play, but the very nature that they played in a regular season game automatically means the paddle is one the line. Otherwise what is the point of the trophy. Now, if you are saying they are retiring the paddle forever, so be it, but then the game is a just rivalry with no name.

Basically the paddle being on the line retired when the series was put on hiatus and when the rivalry was brought back the schools decided that the paddle wouldn't be used for the game anymore

Pinellas 

Clearwater 14 Largo 21 5K in the stands and surrounding the field local neighborhood rivlary that basically decided the district

Lakewood 35 Boca Ciega 0... Bogie probably thought they had something having won 88-0 the week prior... No deal.

Also and for the same reasons I did not include Dunedin vs Clearwater, Clearwater vs  Countryside; CCC vs SPC; Lakewood vs Gibbs.... You can go ahead and remove East Lake vs Tarpon for  the forseeable future...

It was before the split with Rockledge. 

It became to intense with students threats and after game fights so they called it off 5 years ago I believe.

I remember when Merritt Island spray painted Cocoa's baseball facilties black before a football game. It was funny because all Cocoa did was add orange and white stripining and an orange paw. Would've made more sense if the M.I. players would've painted it maize
