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

    • 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.
