Overall: 51.1% of state championships in team sports (not counting boys basketball/softball/baseball yet) have been won by private schools. Perhaps the conversation should be to move private schools in every sport, but football into their own classification or simply a large school/small school private designation.

The funny thing is no one makes a peep when publics dominate, but cry foul when privates do. 
 

Since the early 2000’s Armwood, Lakeland, Plant, Cocoa, Booker T, Miami Central, and Northwestern all have TONS of titles. No one makes a peep. 
 

but when STA, AHP, Chaminade, Jax TC, Jax UC and NFC etc. win ITS UNFAIR!!!!!!!!

quit bitching. Lol

I believe lots of people have called out Lakeland, Armwood, and Plant when they were wining for recruiting.  Everyone knows what happens in Miami

The primary variable here is the degree of population density, and to some extent, wealth, in a given area. The private schools that are racking up titles are almost entirely from large urban areas, where there are numerous big time prospects annually and still enough wealthy families willing to pay high tuition and support the program in other ways.

If not for the factors above, the current open enrollment rules would actually figure to leave public schools with the advantage now.

Actually, the public schools have a big advantage over the privates when it comes to building a football team. A public school takes from any and all of their Jimmies and Joes on campus. Many of those Jimmies and Joes are not available to a private school as some of them cannot afford the tuition, cannot meet the private school requisites, or just are not interested in attending a private school. So the privates have to scramble to put together a viable team from the few Jimmies and Joes available to them. These are the facts that should be indisputable to most.

Not the private schools that dish out financial aid to athletes and not regular kids.  Those private schools do just fine

Hmmm, I thought it was a violation of FHSAA rules for a private school to provide financial assistance to a student based on that student's athletic ability.   Are there private schools out there that are actually doing that?!?!   B)

Public’s have one major edge and that’s on the lines. Privates tend to get skill guys, but when you have a public with 1,500-2,000 kids you can find some 275-300 pound guys to clog up the lines. 
 

Poinciana is one of the worst teams in state history and a few years ago the beat some small private from California. The Cali coach said Poinciana’s line was 50 pounds heavier per man and that was the difference
