In my neck of the woods I can say that Harmony lost like 30 seniors to graduation last year from a roster of about 55-60. Lot's of turnover there this year. A few kids transferred out and they lost some pretty talented coaches. It's going to be a long year for the Longhorns.

I would be surprised if Bishop Moore doesn't win by at least two scores

Bishop Moore started the season with 4 very difficult match-ups going 1-3. They suffered with a very porous secondary on defense and a D-Line that tired in the 3rd quarter of each game. The Defensive Coordinator was playing most starters both ways and wasn't subbing them out. Their offense was able to put points on the board, but they couldn't match their high powered opponents. After their 4th game against Jones, changes were made to their secondary which led to improvements on defense, but the D-Line was still dragging in the 3rd quarter. They were able to put up big numbers in the first half of the South Sumter game, but had to hold on as South Sumter ran the ball successfully in the second half. In their last game against Tavares, they subbed more on the D-Line and instead of burning out in the 3rd quarter, the D-Line played well the entire game. I would expect BM to win this game at Harmony by 3-4 TD's if they continue to improve as shown in their last two games. They started 1-3, but should finish 7-3 and make a run for the playoffs in 5A.

Right there is a huge part of the reason that Florida high school football is not what it was twenty or thirty years ago when the talent was much more spread out and there were multiple solid teams. Today we have a small cadre of teams with outstanding talent an okay middle that will never compete for a state title, and multiple teams that cannot compete to the extent that in Dade County many of the large (8a and 7a) have seen the need to go independent. 

Personally, I don't see this as healthy. But it is what it is ...

Time changes everything. Rockledge is a distance away from Palm Bay. 

Yes it is but students will make that trek especially when their parents work in that area. Also when you parent is one of the coaches as well.
