Escambia would qualify as an excellent, perhaps legendary, team per the standards of the 1980s or 90s. Before the trend of mass consolidation of area talent on a few teams, Escambia would have been a state champion mentioned as arguably the best team in their school's history. But they, along with, frankly, all of the other teams in those days, are no match for a team as loaded with Dade county's best players like Central is in recent years. They'd need to raid Pine Forest's roster to have a chance to beat a team like Miami Central.

 

You think Miami Central is a all star team or has most of the talent in Dade lol

So are you saying if all the talent in the area went to one school and the right coaching staff, Pensacola would make it's presence felt at the championship on a consistent basis ?

You'd need one school to hog all of the talent to have a shot nowadays.

No. I think 90% of the talent in Dade is consolidated at 5-6 schools. Central has a little more than any of those others as well. So, in an area as heavily populated with talent as Dade (there may not be another like it in the country) having that talent so heavily concentrated at a handful of schools means those schools are super talented. As you Dade folks have been quick to remind us, there are lots of really crappy Dade county teams (who've had their rosters raided by those 5-6 schools).

Which is true but that’s not what’s hurting those other schools.. The charters schools and the small privates made it worst imo and trust me those 5-6 school don’t have 90% of the talent...

I wonder if coaching has something to do with the 5-6 Dade County football teams who are successful over the other schools in the county. I remember some posters were criticizing the Central coaches earlier in the season. I will tell you that those Rocket players were being coached up very well in the 6A title game. I was very impressed by the Central coaches.

Maybe not 90%, but a percentage MUCH higher than their enrollment would suggest they'd have.

Sure, the coaching is likely better, which in turn attracts more players.

Defense wise yes. To me they offense is ok.. Not something to go crazy about..

I can respect that. However we put up 30 in one half against Cent and they gave yall a td that was not a td and took our first td away saying sideline interference. We will be ok. Young freshman qb. Cent defense has to get better next year tho. But at end of the day both teams should be in same this same position next year.

I would say excellent not legendary.  They played in a weak region and hosted all games.

Those Miami Central RBs are special. I didn't get to see the game last night but I was at the Palmetto game. Those MC backs kept running off-tackle plays and breaking tackles one after another. Palmetto was in position alot/most of the time but those MC backs were never brought down by the first defender.

Oh not a cheap shot lol. But im pretty sure you know where im coming from. Weve both seen dominating teams. Both Da West and Central arent that dominating imo this year. My boy coach oline at Da West. Coach Tee.

Facts and i would argue Palmetto had the team to beat Central.

Nah I feel you. Oline has improved over the year and I look forward to seeing how next year unfolds. Even with non dominating teams as in the past when the teams play their A game other parts of the state are not consistently on par with the level of play the best teams in South Florida.

    • Perspective, I will try to answer your questions.   1. The reason why officials seem to hesitate to blow their whistles is  because the whistle very rarely ends the play itself. Usually, the result of the play, such as a runner running out-of-bounds or a receiver making a catch on the ground. In those type of situations, a defensive player is not going to make a tackle or hit an offensive player after that action just because a whistle did not blow. Forward progress can be tricky, and it is usually better to wait to blow the whistle, and then determine the result of the play instead of blowing a whistle immediately which automatically ends the play. 2. The coaches teaching the players to play to the whistle is incorrect, and most officials would urge coaches to stop teaching that phrase. The result of the play ends the play, not the whistle unless it is an inadvertent whistle. 3. By the letter of the rule the officials do not have the authority to send out a player to the sideline. However, there is an understanding among coaches and officials of the idea of a penalty box, meaning an official can point out to a coach that one of his players is getting out of control, and needs a 'cooling off' period without drawing a penalty. The player then can come back into the game at the coaches discretion. I do not know of one high school coach who has every declined this arrangement. 4. That sounds like a blown call by the officiating crew.
    • I was looking forward to that Chaminade v Cocoa matchup this season. Hopefully they had a home n home setup
    • The Bloodhounds are a bit unsettled at QB, so Lake Gibson's stout defense was too much. Assuming Lake Gibson is able to play Lakeland next week (a big assumption with Covid), LG might ought to be a slight favorite. Lakeland has been completely shut down since Sep. 8, and won't be able to do anything until Tuesday of game week.
    • Thad Franklin got hurt late in the game. AHP has a very athletic defense that owned CM's big O-line. You would think Thad Franklin on a rainy night behind that O-line would be able to score, but no.  CM's O-line needs work on blocking. CM is a very formidable team in 3A.  But I do not think the Lions have the firepower on offense to be considered one of the best teams in the state amongst all classes.    Both teams have quick D's that will give offenses trouble.  AHP's offense needs some reps.           
    • Lions had their chance.  Thad Franklin broke off a big run but Lions fumbled it on the next play due to bad exchange from qb.
