Upsets of 2019 - Palmetto vs Lincoln Video

Recommended Posts


One possibility could be Vero Beach who was undefeated coming into the game against Deerfield Beach in the 8A regional finals. DB, a 3 loss team, beat VB pretty handily in that game. 

I don't remember if VB was ranked # 1 in 8A at the time, though.

Lincoln was no joke. They came within a whisker of beating Edgewater which proceeded to put the fear of God into St. Thomas in the 7A final. 

Palmetto's #1 rankings at the time was due to an inflated RPI that in hindsight was not as strong at year end.

Palmetto was a good team. The state semifinal was way more competitive than the final. Palmetto gave Miami Central a good game and could have won. Central won the sate title game in blowout fashion.

People continue to underestimate the toll that a long (4 plus hours) bus ride can take on young athletes - especially when gametime heat becomes a factor, as well. 

Lincoln made the 3.5 hour drive from Tally and took Edgewater to overtime in the second round before losing. Regarding the state title final, St Thomas has abundant resources. If they chose to drive up day of game and not spend the night in Daytona, it is totally on them.

Darter, I hear what you're saying, but I was actually referring to the first game mentioned, in which Palmetto made the drive up to Tally for an early-season game. 

When it comes time for playoffs, the weather is usually a little cooler and the players are better conditioned.  The long bus ride becomes less of a factor, in my opinion, but it still can have an effect on the outcome of a game.   I know, I know, 'take care of business during the regular season' and you don't have to worry about long bus rides.   At least in theory.

That is the operative sentence right there. But I guess, if you end up with a long ride in the third or fourth round, it's all good. Not many teams get there and many schools with decent enough programs never have.

    • 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.
