Gulf High School cancels Remainder of Season

Recommended Posts

https://www.tampabay.com/sports/high-schools/2019/10/15/gulf-high-cancels-remainder-of-football-season-due-to-injuries/

I know nobody will care that an 0-7 team that scored a total of 14 points for the entire season ended early, but this is what I mean when I say the sport might end up dying because we don't allow fair competition. Look Gulf is bad, last week they lost to Tarpon Springs who has given up 50+ points in 5 of their 6 losses (42 in the other). Tarpon Springs had scored a total of 7 points before winning 20-0.  Gulf is 14-85 in the last 9 seasons (technically 14-88 if the rest count as forfeits) or .159 Winning Percentage.  If you count boys soccer, basketball, and baseball over the past 9 season the schools is 118-411-14 or .299 Winning percentage across the other team sports.

If you are a Head Coach, Athletic Director, Principal, or Superintendent, how do you fix this culture of losing at a school?

Short of a miracle, you can't fix it as long as the most motivated and dedicated players intentionally avoid showing up on campus in the first place.

Zephyrhills 68 29 0.701

 

Just to give an idea of how Pasco County schools have done since 2010 (not counting this year).
The schools surrounding Gulf are Anclote, Mitchell, River Ridge, and Fivay. Again, I wonder what a principal, coach, AD, or superintendent does in this situation to improve? Or do they even care? Just cash the paycheck and move on.

You can't fix apathy until you remove those who are apathetic.
