Vero vs Deerfield Beach

Recommended Posts

We haven't played them for a long time. Today's Deerfield Beach  team has only one common opponent, Boca Raton. Deerfield beat Boca 49-6 and Vero beat Boca 42-7. So it should be a close game.

Scores often don't tell the tale. For while it is obvious that both VB and DB are pretty strong teams that destroy average teams (Boca), what matters probably more are the match-ups. What are the strengths and weaknesses of each team?

I have seen VB on film so I have a pretty good idea of VB's strengths and weaknesses. I have not seen DB either on film or live. I do know that they have their fair share of college talent, but I am unsure as to how they are as a team. VB has one big advantage: being at home.

It probably will be a close game; but to be honest, I would not be surprised if one team pulls away and wins comfortably. I don't pretend to know which team will do so.

Having played against Deerfield ...seeing them play in the stands && being from south Florida ..Deerfield has always been one of the most talented rich teams in south Florida constantly. 
 

the only thing that has held them back honestly from being multiple state champs at this point is coaching. Their extremely talented but also extremely undisciplined. 
 

I don’t follow vero other then the things I see on here about em so I know nothing about their coaching staff; but if vero coaching staff is solid to above avg I see vero in this game to the end with a chance to possibly win it at home.

Dillard is right though - consistently one of the top talent programs in South Florida with lackluster coaching. Their offense is serious legit if they could just stay disciplined. Check out this offense. Only struggles against sol'd SJ (DC) and STA teams with a Kickoff loss against Carol City in mid August.

Jaylon Knighton, (4-star FSU commit - no. 3 running back for 2020 overall) 

Aydin Henningham (Pittsburgh Panthers commit.)

Xavier Restrepo, (3-star receiver Hurricanes ATH)

Bryce Gowdy (3-star receiver GTech commit)

Deajaun McDougle (3-star receiver Maryland  commit).

Woody Jean (3-star O-line Arizona commit)

and TWO D1 QB's - Derohn King (Southern Miss commit),and Michael Pratt (Tulane commit)

Deerfield is the most talented team Vero will see this year

I disagree I believe it was Chaminade regardless of the outcome that happen. Deerfield is obviously a worthy opponent but if vero prepare & handle jussi was like they did vs Chaminade I see 20-6 24-13 type win for vero

Concerning DB's coaching, Jevon Glenn is in his 5th season as hc.  He spent 8 years as JV coach prior to that.  So, the man has a lot invested in the school, and has brought some stability to a program that lacked it.  DB has not had a coach with that kind of tenure for ages.  You don't win at Buford, Georgia and make the state semis by being an extremely undisciplined team(last season).   They were doing a lot of things right. 

When an 8A team puts a running clock on their first two playoff opponents, it gets my attention.  This DB team could be coming together at the right time.  That's not to say Vero could not beat them.  But I would not underestimate the Bucks.

Didn't know that - maybe it's their time. They just have had a string of bad luck making out of the first two rounds. Last year they were comparable if not better than Columbus on paper, and they fell apart in that game: dropped TD passes, massive penalties in the first half and at least two pick 6 maybe 3 To's in all - all on their home field.

I'm not saying they can't pull it off, they CAN. but Coach Glenn can't have a showing like that against Vero. I think this years team is actually better than the one Columbus beat last year. And Columbus is worse!

Chaminade doesn't have FIVE P5 skill kids starting on offense + TWO P5 skill kids on the bench. DB's BACK-UP Quarterback is D1, their back-up RB and a 2nd string WR.

This game will come down to 2 things...

 

1. Can Vero's defense keep Deerfield's loaded offense from scoring? 

2. Can Deerfield's defense contain Jermaine Dawson and Vero's well-oiled offense?

 

On Friday they held PBC's Bryan Robinson to 3 catches for roughly 17 yards and completely shut down Central's offense after their opening drive. 

And with FIVE Power-5 recruits starting on Deerfield's offense it's always a difficult task to contain them for 4 whole quarters. 

DB is firing on all cylinders right now. Vero looks very tough and well-coached though. It should be a good game.

    • It's on there team preview page. At the beginning of the season, it was 35 hardest, remember Columbia was top 10, 
    • I'm just saying Rockledge is getting all the transfers now.  They already have 5 transfers
    • it is the same as maxpreps.  Give me the link please.  That 20.6 is there SOS.  It is not even in the top 100.  The 102-62 record of opponent is really good.   Madison has to play 1A teams which hurts their SOS.  Most 1 teams are not ranked very high.   26 Madison County (Madison, FL)   team preview   trend Florida 1A Region 3 1A 12-2 0-0 6-0 49.3 20.6 102-62
    • No real surprises honestly, it looks like it is spread out among numerous classifications and regions of Florida. I wonder what state title team since 2000 has the worst winning percentage over the same period as above. My guess would Nease or Jupiter Christian or Jefferson County.    
    • Here are the best programs to have not reached a state title game this century, sorted by their W-L Pct. vs. Florida Competition (2000-2019). Out of State contests are not included.   School W L Pct Vero Beach 168 51 0.767 Jesuit (Tampa)  178 58 0.754 Hillsborough (Tampa) 160 63 0.717 Columbia (Lake City)  164 65 0.716 Fletcher (Neptune Beach) 159 66 0.707 Largo 159 66 0.707 Fort Myers  161 67 0.706 Charlotte (Punta Gorda)  161 69 0.700 Lafayette (Mayo) 151 66 0.696 Countryside (Clearwater)  149 66 0.693 Hardee (Wauchula) 153 68 0.692 Dunnellon 147 68 0.684 Dixie County (Cross City) 150 70 0.682 First Baptist (Naples) 77 36 0.681 First Academy (Orlando) 151 71 0.680 South Fort Myers 112 56 0.667 Park Vista (Lake Worth) 109 55 0.665 Calvary Christian (Fort Lauderdale) 104 53 0.662 Merritt Island  149 77 0.659 Lake Wales 147 77 0.656 Winter Park 145 78 0.650 Fleming Island (Orange Park) 120 65 0.649 Winter Haven  143 78 0.647 Plantation  140 77 0.645 Pace 139 78 0.641
