STA is team of the decade 2010-2019

Recommended Posts

1x national champs

6x state champion

1x runner up 

41 playoff wins 

Beat Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach powers

Highlight wins 

Deerfield Beach

Miramar (won states that 2009)

Northwestern 

AHP (won states that year 2014)

BTW (won states that year 2015)

Carol City

Flanagan (won states that year 2015)

Mandarin (defending champs from 2018)

Atlantic

Dwyer 

Manatee (were no.1 in 2012)

Plant 

Osceola 

Venice 

Viera

Lincoln

Edgewater 

 

STA only missed going to states in 2011, 2013, and 2017......Dwyer and Venice are the only reason why they ain't go to states those years and both teams had a hard time beating STA when they weren't at their fullest 

 

Miami Central can argue against being team of the decade too.....

6x state champion

1x runner up 

Stuck in the most difficult district to win, that's the only reason they ain't go to states damn near every year of the decade (2010-2019)...but an impressive run they had tho

I actually would give nod to Central as they faced a much tougher path to get their 6 championships (the national title is opinion based)

It's up for debate tho I see your argument because Miami central did beat STA and beat Bishop Gorman and Don Bosco prep who STA lost too

Compare the regions of STA and Miami Central and it's not even close, Miami Central faced much tougher competition whether it was in regional play or at state

Or at least the region they had most of the decade

 

 

Fort Lauderdale and Ely were their district for what felt like at least half the decade and Dwyer and Venice were only somewhat decent threats in the South region to them until 7a got stronger this year and even then you just added Atlantic and Manatee to the South

 

 

Miami Central spent most of decade sharing a district with Norland, Carol City and Miami Northwestern, all of whom won state titles this decade and combined had 5 state championships between those 3 schools

It means overall bruh if STA were in 6a like Miami Central, they would runnin clock em

Miami Central spent most of the decade sharing a district with teams who finished decade with a combined 5 state titles

 

 

Did STA share a district any year this decade with a team who won a state title during the decade?

I'm well aware their district is tough which keeps them from being team of the decade BUT in 2017 they had a potential state team, 2018 samething, now they could be for the next decade claiming more state titles and beating the other Miami teams constantly

You can give STA credit for beating some oos schools and winning state but their Region for this decade was terrible and don't come close to the playoff path of 6a 4 AT ANY POINT this decade 

STA made Manatee, Dwyer, Venice, Plant and Viera look like amateurs in the playoffs

No one in this thread is arguing STA's district is tougher than MC's.

Maybe not but district and region strength should play a factor as it shows the playoff path of each team

 

Both STA and Miami Central got 6 titles this decade but while one spent most of the decade in the district of death, another had a region full of cupcakes for most of the decade

STA destroyed teams like Dwyer, Venice, Viera, and Plant in the playoffs these teams can easily compete anywhere in the state

I'd be interested in going through the years and comparing.    

2010      STA on paper one of their best teams ever.   That being said, MC seemed to struggle vs option teams back then and I would be kidding myself if I said MC wouldn’t give STA a game.   

*Playoff difficulty very slight edge MC only because South Dade>>>Cooper City.    Both Miami and Creek sucked.    BA beat Cypress bay 36-17 that year.   Manatee and Plant  vs MNW and DP would be a VERY interesting debate (back then I would have said Manatee/Plant no doubt), looking back ehhh I think it's pretty close.  

 STA:  beat Camden County GA 42-28 (home),  beat Cypress Bay  60-14 (away) 

 *playoff wins: Coconut Creek (59-0),  Cooper City (49-7),  Boyd Anderson (47-6), Manatee (31-7), Plant (30-7)

Central:  Lost Camden Co GA  42-45 (away),  beat Cypress Bay 30-27 (away?)

*playoff wins: Miami  (55-0),  MNW (42-27), South Dade (38-7), Cypress Bay (30-27),  DP  (42-27)

2010: Edge STA  (MC was NASTY though) 

I'll try and do 2011 and 2012 tomorrow.

I went through the years and results (even though Maxpreps is off in a lot of spots SMH)  

I had the final tally at 5-5.  So very close indeed.  

I gave STA  2010, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2019

Central  2011, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018

Some years are very debatable IMO.

So since it's practically even would it be fair to give Central the overall better decade because of their Region being stronger on average this decade?

 

 

I think STA is a close second for team of the decade but I was just more impressed by Miami Central run this decade because of how tough a road they had

It is very close, both won 5 state titles a piece, even tho MC ain't go to states for like 3 years in a row, they were in the mix and they beat alot of national ranked teams

It's a draw I'll even make another thread on this to clear it up

    • 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. 
    • It's better because how is trinty Catholic ever going to beat chamme madonna. Union county not beating Madison. But Andrew Thomas is probably going to get some players to try.
