No. 2 Miami Northwestern vs No. 1 American Heritage

Recommended Posts

Region 4

5A 

Ladies and Gentlemen it is here. The Miami Northwestern Bulls and it's Golden Girls a.ka. The Dynamic Dozen who we know has the best high school danceline. But Do the Bulls have the Best Football team in 5A? We will find that out Friday night as The West travel on the road for the first time this season during the playoffs to Plantation Florida to take on American Heritage Patriots in the No. 1 Marquee matchup in the state of Florida (MC vs Dillard) the second. The last meeting between the two was back in 2016 with The Patriots winning a thriller that rivaled the Booker T. Washington and St.Thomas Aquinas game. The Pats won 34-32 do to The West not having a kicker so they had to keep going for 2pts and failed on them more than once. Based on common opponents the two teams have played Cardinal Gibbons, Key West Conchs, and Stranahan. The Bulls defeated Cardinal Gibbons 32-0 AMH defeated CG 28-21. The Bulls defeated Key West 49-14 AMH 53-15. The Bulls defeated Stranahan 63-0 AMH 27-6 (Amh was without starters in this game including they starting QB).  As far as rushing yds per game The Bulls 252.5 AMH 126.0. Pass yds per game The Bulls 254.0 AMH 179.5. Total yds per game The Bulls 506.8 AMH 305.5. Tackles per game The Bulls 104.1 AMH 58.2. Sacks per game The Bulls 6.7 AMH 4.2. Pts per game The Bulls 36.2 AMH 35.6. Pancake Blocks The Bulls 180 AMH N/A.  WHO YOU WITH? GIVE ME YOUR THOUGHTS, AND PREDICTIONS ON THE GAME. DO YOU ROCK WITH THE WEST OR THE PATRIOTS because this meeting was talked about as soon as recertifications began.

lol it sure will and can possibly happen.

i got to admit it Dillard to me just was a team with just a little luck and and thankful schedule. I even said some of this on Scorestream that if Dillard beat Columbus I'll it will change what i think. It's the Columbus game, and Fort Myers game is what made me be like okay they do got a squad but it all comes down to this weekend and i cant wait. Soooo many games im looking forward to. No.1 is my Bulls the MC vs Dillard, the BTW vs CG, and Vanguard vs Jones in that order.

I can’t wait either but I don’t think you can go (14-0) since your lAst lost & b considered lucky ...are we nationally elite ? No sir we haven’t earned that right we have to show we can be the best in our own classification first. 
 

But to go 8-2 last year lost a hard fought game to BTW at traz Then to go to western & win AT western then lose a Close game @ gibbons which many said we will lose all 3 to end the season on a 7 game winning streak go toe to toe with nationally ranked Miami central as 38 point underdogs. 
 

to go into the offseason get better stronger deeper bigger & most of get a great coaching staff and since then we have not lost a game (14-0) counting spring & KOC which was won 58-7 & 44-0 respectively. out of those 14 opponents NINE of those teams were plAyoff teams. 

ft lauderdale 

taravela 

Miramar 

columbus 

pahokee 

ely 

lely 

ft Myers 

stranahan 

so granted Dillard may not have the 4 & 5* recruits & transfers & etc to make them a super team; but they do have 1 thing & that’s heart & they believe & play for one another & they have a coaching staff & demands nothing less then their all. And so far that has led to 12 wins & 0 loses.

I couldn’t get an answer from the one clown. So I will ask again someone with knowledge. 

What did Lowndes do that made MNW look so bad? The athletic advantage couldnt have been that superior. I heard Lowndes fans were upset that MNW looked like a JV team who couldn’t compete. 

Tickets were in high demand to catch a supposed top team and people were scalping tickets for higher prices to catch the epic event. Only to have it look like a homecoming game. Lowndes could have scored 70. 

What was the reason for all of this?

No funny business but that’s a easy question with a easy answer “COACHING” & “DISCIPLINE” 

the coaching staffs hit different the more up north you go now u add talent to the mix (scary thought) 

Florida is not in a time anymore where we can just line up & beat everyone with our speed ...80% plus team in Florida suffer from extreme undisciplined play year in & year out. 
 

but coaches at a st frances ..mater dei ..lowndes & etc they coach & pay attention to every little detail ..they refuse to beat themselves. Florida we have the talent but our LEVEL OF PLAY is subpar at best. Which is why we can look like world beaters in Florida then get blasted out of state.

Why can't Wharton be relevant? When last Wharton game you went to? I see I had you in your feelings to go name calling. Where is Steinbrenner located?  Did you go to that game? Why did they get beat by 60? What type of offense does Wharton run?

I would not be. I think Northwestern is the best team in Dade. In fact, they may be the best in South Florida this year, even better than St. Thomas. 

Speaking of STA do u like the winner of Armwood Lakeland to beat them at State?

I think STA takes it this year (almost threw up in my mouth) lakeland vs TBT really had me like whoa being that that game was predicted to b a blowout win for lakeland & Armwood struggled in a defensive battle vs Gaither who is no where near STA level.

right now if STA met either of them I got STA by 14 to 17 points.

That's some high praise for MNW. I'd have to take STA over anyone in the state at this point though.

I think this year, much like last year, STA is a team comprised of superior athletes (compared to most of the teams in the state or in the nation, for the most part) who all play on the field together at the same time.  But these kids have not grown up together like the kids on a typical high school football team, so, in my humble opinion, they rely on talent, but not necessarily heart.   And 14 times out of 15, that's good enough. 

On the other hand, last year Lakeland had a team that included some exceptional athletes that were surrounded by very good athletes that all played together very well as a team.  And regardless of how long some of the players had been at Lakeland, they really came together during their playoff run.   With the number of new players, it's been hard to tell if that's happening again this year.  The Armwood game will be my barometer.   And, ultimately for both teams, injuries may very well play a big part in who gets to hold up the championship trophy in Daytona.  

Assuming both teams are both reasonably healthy, I'm leaning towards the Polk County All-Star team defeating both the East Hillsborough County All-Star team and the Florida East Coast All-Star team in a close championship game.

 It just means the football here isn’t as good as people think it is.  The individual talent is off the charts but the team talent is way behind

I am not convinced that STA this year is better then they were last year. Very good, yes; great, I am not sure.

Going across to the other coast of the U.S. and beating De La Salle was enough for me. And for the record, I called the Lakeland over STA win last year.

Don't blame the last meeting on not having a kicker. That game was 27-8 at halftime for Heritage. Heritage had a missed fg and several failed scoring opportunities. Game could of went the other way just as easy and the clock would of ran. 

 

Both the current teams have had a couple slow start games. First one to get the momentum wins 

 

Darter, can you elaborate on why you think MNW will out physical ahp. Don't see it

    • Fort Walton Beach finally posted their position vacancy yesterday... with a close date of today. Guess they have their guy.
    • Proseteye, I was around when OTC was playing those teams, these new OTC teams are not on that level. Don't get me wrong they are good, but they just aren't the same.  In 2005, OTC struggled with Union County (twice) (Union was good then with CJ Spiller) and Pahokee on their way to a 14-0 season. In 2006, OTC goes 13-1 with a loss in the state championship to Pahokee. In 2007, Coach Bell is gone, schedule is upgraded, and OTC struggles to 7-5 including two losses to Newberry and a loss to Union County.  In 2008, OTC goes 12-2 with a loss against Mainland and Pahokee (again). In 2009, OTC goes 9-3 with loses against Bolles, Tampa Catholic, and Gainesville. in 2010, OTC goes 14-0 beats some impressive teams along the way including a Derrick Henry led Yulee team, Bolles, and University School (when University School was doing it's thing). in 2011, OTC goes 7-5 including losing to some local schools (Vanguard, North Marion, Gainesville).  In 2012, OTC goes 8-5. In 2013, OTC  goes 8-4. In 2014, OTC goes  10-2 against a fairly easy schedule to lose to the developing juggernaut of Trinity Christian. In 2015, OTC goes 4-8 (including a loss to Lake Weir) In 2016, OTC goes 4-5. In 2017, OTC goes 5-3 (misses playoffs). In 2018, OTC goes 5-5 (misses playoffs). In 2019, OTC goes 8-4 with an impressive home playoff win against Trinity Christian (Jax). So why go through the last few years, OTC's successes are a long time ago of when they were a dominant beast.  Vanguard: 2004: 2-7 2005: 5-5 2006: 5-5 2007: 2-8 2008: 0-10 2009: 6-6 2010: 10-3 2011: 7-4 2012: 6-6 2013: 5-5 2014: 4-6 2015: 9-3 2016: 10-2 2017: 11-1 2018: 13-1 2019: 9-3 I think partially what has happened is that Vanguard has stabilized it's football program. Notice the worse years of Vanguard coincide with the best years of OTC. There was a reason that OTC was called the Marion County All-Stars for a while. As long as Vanguard continues to have a solid program, OTC won't get the 1 or 2 additional star players they need to make them a state finalist. They will continue to be good, but not able to overcome some of the recruiting powerhouses. Additionally, if you go back to the years of 2B, it was made up of a lot of the larger 1A schools today. You weren't playing Trinity Christian, Pensacola Catholic, Florida High, Chaminade-Madonna to win the state, the competition was easier. It is telling that since they did away with 2B that Trinity has struggled with consistency.
    • Maybe you were not around when the Celtics were able to take on anybody and either defeat them or compete with them. Teams like TCA, Bolles, Jesuit, Gainesville, Vanguard, Pahokee, IMG, East Lake, Palmetto, Madison, University, Booker, and Mainland. All good teams and most of them in higher classifications. So, going up against Chaminade would not be something that is uncharacteristic of the Celtics. I'm really disappointed in Coach Thomas's decision to leave Trinity just when the team was getting ready to make some real noise. He already had the players at Trinity.
    • If you look at Marion County, they have a different situation where all team sports are paid the same as football coaches (except soccer and volleyball). The number has been $5,000 since 2007 and I willing to bet the reason why the basketball coach and the football coach are equal has to do with the work the Vanguard Basketball Coach Haley did in creating a program and pushing for higher pay. 
    • Local Control and Local Decisions (both in Georgia and Florida). It is a hard sell to both school boards and unions to pay a teacher less than 40K and then turn around a pay a football coach 65K for being a "coach," especially when principals and schools are graded not on how good a football program is, but whether the school is an A, B, C, D, or F. Florida as a whole does not support extracurriculars because the people living in the communities haven't been there long. We are a transient state. All the counties that we listed as top pay (Okaloose, Bay, Walton) are panhandle counties. Counties where people have lived in them forever. Where grandma's grandma lived. As a whole, I wonder what percentage of coaches take leadership roles in their local union and push for higher supplements (even if it was incremental of $100 a year). A lot of the unions seem to be led by elementary school teachers who have little experience with the value/importance of coaches.  As for gate... Let's think costs first... 1) Referees: $65 x 5 = $325 per game plus travel stipends 2) Security: $20 x 3 hours x 5 officers = $300 per game 3) Ticket Takers: $25 per game per individual (maybe 6 people): $150 per game 4) Line the Field: $100-200 in supplies per game _____________________________________  $875 per game (and this is a VERY conservative number).  Start adding in: New Jerseys/Pants (once every 2 years) ($140 for a set?) x 80 players Helmets Refurbished every year and replaced every XX years. Practice Gear Balls Pre-Game Meals HUDL Account Coach Polos/Outfits Practice Equipment (tackling dummies, blocking sledds, chutes).  I wish school districts would understand that if you want these boys and girls to representatives of your community than you should pay for them to be just that. Basic equipment and costs should be covered by the school districts. Teams should have to fund raise just in hopes having enough money to travel to a game or hire referees or get jerseys.
