Just to add.....

As of this afternoon, Lakeland sold out of their allotment of tickets. So, the only way to get tickets now is at Armwood, or through GoFan with the "super secret" promo code: ArmwoodPlayoff

Armwood has stated that no tickets will be sold at the gate. 

Got mine from Go Fan, thanks for the info...

 

Get Naught-Y

With Lakeland selling their 1000 tickets, plus the ones out of Armwood's allotment they bought from GoFan, the Lakeland side will be ridiculously packed. Those stands may hold 500-600. Then add in the band.......I'm thinking I may wear neutral clothing and sit on the Armwood side.

Definitely, really to bad it has to be at a rinky dink stadium instead of a classic stadium... :)

Armwood's home side has plenty of room but the away side is small. They could put some temp bleachers in  spots, but I don't know if that is doable on only 1 week's notice. No other game, other than if they were playing a good Plant team in the playoffs, would have the need for additional bleachers.

I was just looking at their stands on google maps....gonna be a tight fit tonight.

Much credit to Armwood!

The only way Lakeland wins that game is if they played Mason Martin all game. Garnett proved to be a MAJOR disappointment. Didn't help that Arian Smith is very raw, and the other WR ended up being the weakest at that position they've had in many years. 

And I wish we would have seen the jumbo package a lot more, particularly the one with a shallow shotgun. I think the under center version was used once and stuffed and then we never saw it again.

Lastly, I hope you NEVER get stuck having to watch NFHS network to see your favorite team in a big game. Shockingly bad!

That was terrible, wasn't it.  I just turned a California game on and the picture is crisp as can be.

I requested a refund right after the game. NOT as a sore loser, but as someone who knows when he's been ripped off. The camera operator literally could not keep the play within the frame...ever. That's when the feed wasn't cutting out completely.

why did Lakeland just abandon the running game? Bowman barely touched the ball? This game did not make any sense. Lakeland's defense play pretty tough but gave up a few big plays. Normally Lakeland would be right in this game but they gave up on the run? It was baffling?

with average backs, I'd understand it. But, Bowman (and to a lesser extent Kellum) is a threat to score any time. He doesn't need much of a hole.

Armwoods Defense is good, real good.

Armwood's field looks like it needs a coat of green paint.

 

Well I was wrong. Armwood kicked the snot out of Lakeland.

Agreed about the defense and the field. The field looked like a herd of cattle had been grazing there for a week straight. I was very surprised by that. 

As for the defense, Armwood wasn't giving the Naughts anything. Their D is certainly legit. 

The offense play calling on the Armwood side though? I was scratching my head on quite a few occasions. They passed the ball way too much when they should have been running the ball IMO. It was almost as if they wanted Lakeland to get back in the game instead of stepping on their throats.

Armwood does not have the offense to compete with St Thomas. If they get by Edgewater with their defense, they'll get shutout in the final again.

It looks that way. I think Armwood has the horses to damage on offense, but the play calling needs to change.

Armwood's formula for winning a state title involves a steady diet of conservative play-calling with the occasional shot downfield to Hall or Montgomery. If they can win the "Scores created by defense and special teams" category, which is so HUGE in Florida HS football these days, they can beat anyone.

    • Another way of putting it...the "big" kid always had a place in hs football.  As a hs coach, when that big kid showed up on the practice field, you said, "Son, we'll find a place for you somewhere." Now only the giant and/or fast kid has a place.  In terms of the average population, a 6'0" 230 pound high schooler is a BIG kid.  But in hs football today, if that kid is slow, there is really not a place for him.  He is too small for the line and too slow for any other position, at least in a state like Florida.        
    • Interesting graphic.... https://noahveltman.com/nflplayers/ Interesting comment..."Nowadays if you're 6' 3" and 280 pounds, you're too big for most skill positions and too small to play line." It's fascinating how over time people of a certain stature have been "squeezed out" of D1 football and/or NFL positions.  40 years ago a skilled, 6'3" 280 guy would be a lineman in the NFL.  Nowadays that guy would likely not be starting on a Power 5 team at any position. I wonder if in the future the same will be said for the 6'4" 300 -pound lineman?  Will they be too big and too small to play on an NFL team?  Everything is becoming more and more specialized.  With participation in football already declining in some areas, this level of specialization is a bit concerning.  Years ago, one saw kids of all shapes and sizes playing hs football.  Not anymore, at least not in the hs football hot spot areas.  Combine that with the growing concern over concussions and parents not allowing kids to play football, and I worry what football in the future will have to offer the "average" kid compared to other sports that seem to offer kids of more varying body types the opportunity to play.
    • I appreciate the response.   Let me focus on this one for just a second.   If an offensive player (a lineman or a receiver) is out ahead of the play (such that the QB or RB is behind them), how are they supposed to know when the play ends if there is no audible signal?   I just don't understand how you can ask a downfield blocker to know when he's supposed to stop blocking.  Is he supposed to turn his head and look behind him every other second to see if the play has ended?  Kind of hard to keep his eye on the man he is blocking if his head is turned around.  Maybe Linda Blair could do it, but I don't know of anyone else.  While I understand the easy "play is over" situations like a ball carrier hitting the ground or running out of bounds, what's wrong with a short, loud whistle to let all players know the play is dead?   Plant got burned by an inadvertent whistle in the playoffs a few years ago, so I understand the need to avoid that kind of situation.  But to not blow the whistle when a play is obviously over (to anyone looking at the play), and then turn around and penalize or send players off to cool down when they're still hitting after the play is over, despite no whistle having been blown, simply does not make sense to me.  But I appreciate the explanation. 
    • Request a refund. They grant them pretty easily. Oddly, Lakeland announced they will not offer any streams this year. They had one of the more reliable streams for the last several years. Bummer.
    • Brian Sheridan passed away this week at the age of 45.  I believe he had been battling cancer.   Sheridan had been a star at Rutgers, where he played linebacker.  He still holds the Rutgers single season tackles record with 161 and is #3 all-time in tackles at Rutgers with 389 he accrued from 1993-1997. He was a hs coach in his home state of NJ before moving moving to FL in 2007.
