Private School State Titles

Recommended Posts

Private schools as a whole have won 83 state football titles awarded by the FHSAA.  About 3/4 of those titles were won by a private school from 1 of 3 counties. 

1. Which are the 3 counties?

2. Of those counties, private schools from this county have won more state titles than any other county?  Which county?

Duval, Broward and Palm Beach  are the 3 counties.  Which has the most private school state titles?

Going with Duval

 

Bolles, UC and TCA I believe combined have over 30 between them

 

On the flip side Duval only has 2 publics who have won state titles with only 1 having multiple

Ironically, Palm Beach still has more public than private titles unlike Duval and Broward.

Those three have been poaching talent from the Gateway schools for decades, which, except for a few instances, is one of the reasons why they do not schedule games against them.  It is the number one reason why the Gateway (DCPS) schools in general have had very little success at the state level.

It is certainly not the number one reason why Gateway schools have had very little success. It has much more to do with a lack of coaching stability (often times due to incompetent administration, for instance the Jackson coach Atwater being fired after greatly improving the team)

Yep, that too.  Most schools are a coaching merry-go-round.  Doesn't help that they are expected to coach for nothing more than teacher pay and a small stipend.  Moving administrators from school to school has always been a problem with DCPS for as long as I can remember.  Nothing is ever consistent.  In fact, DCPS is just a complete train wreck from the top down.  I guess it all contributes.

Yes it is. They do a complete disservice to the kids, I feel so bad for them.

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
