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.

Actually it is Jefferson County who comes in at 0.387. Followed by FAMU (0.435), Flanagan (0.493) and then Nease (0.519). 

Jupiter Christian is actually 0.602 over the past twenty seasons.

What do Deerfield Beach's numbers look like?

Probably a relatively high win percentage. They did reach state in 2005, though, when they upset Northwestern in the semis. Unfortunately, they got blown out by Palm Beach Gardens.

Thank you Laz,

I am not terribly surprised by it being Jefferson County. The year they won 1A, they were dominate in that class, but they are hardly even are mentioned since then. FAMU seems the type of team similar to most 1A (yes I know they aren't 1A), but they have ebbs and flows of talents, but even a decent FAMU team seems likely to only be 5-5. 

As for Jupiter Christian, I guess I only pay attention during their bad seasons (which are usually really bad).

Ok I'm dumb, thought this was teams that haven't won titles.

No you are not dumb; I understand the error. But based on the title, it was teams that have not reached a title game. Edgewater, is probably the best team in past 20 years to not win a title having reached the title game four times (all losing efforts) and the semis two additional times.

Certainly came much closer than I would have liked this year!

They were a very good, underrated team which did not get much respect outside the Orlando area. They had a decent shot at taking down St. Thomas and in the end came up just short.

I understand why the QB threw the ball to Tommi Hill on the final play of the game as he had a hot hand the last two Edgewater drives. But he was double covered so the throw had to be perfect and it was not. If he had looked left instead of right, Edgewater had another decent receiver, who, while not wide open, only had one defender covering him. That would have been a better, more interesting option.
