Who Is This FL HS Legend? Reinard Wilson/Columbia

Recommended Posts

One of the better defensive players to come out of north FL.  Was a collegiate All-American and first round draft pick in the NFL, where he played linebacker.

Who is he?

Where did he play in high school?

Where did he play in college?

For which NFL team did he play?

Bonus question: What record did he break when he played?

He has sworn off football, I thought I read... so maybe he is done for a while. (not the photo, the likely person to answer). 

Yeah, I am pretty stunned.  Whuda thunk he would fail to identify one of the great Gainesville High players of all time.

You talking about my man, Columbiafan? He is alive and well on the National Football board with the sharks, barracudas and other predator fishes.

It is Reinard Wilson of Columbia High, Florida and the Bengals.  And he still holds the all-time sack record for the Gators.

I just knew ColumbiaFan would get this because of his encyclopedic knowledge of the Gators and fanaticism for all things Gainesville

Caption please?

Columbia Football Eliminated by Lee for Second-Straight Year ...

Welcome to the BattleField, those sand patches are wear the actual mortars landed this week during artillery practice. (What an awful field). 

I get that school districts can't always afford Fieldturf, but if you are the Duval County School District, how are you not embarrassed by this field.

I hear the school practices every sport they can on the field, they use it as a home field advantage even though that field shouldn't be fit to hold a playoff game nor is it safe to be literally playing the a middle of a housing network but it is what it is

 

If we could ever just beat them in the regular season we could play the playoff rematch in a real stadium with a field that doesn't look like it was dragged in by a rip current

    • It is not Estero.  Please reread the background information above.  Joe Hampton took over the Estero program in 1988 and won his first playoff game 10 years later, not 3 years.

    • Interestingly, if you listened in on the FHSAA Fall Sports Task Force zoom call the other day, the FHSAA seems to be inclined to punt on any and all health issues.  While that may be a smart legal position to take, and while there may be some merit in leaving Covid-related decisions in the hands of the local health officials, the end result is going to be an inconsistent set of rules and policies.   Personally, I think the FHSAA needs to take a more vocal role in setting up some basic standards on big-ticket issues, such as:  (1) will fans be allowed at games (if so, under what circumstances)?; (2) what should/must a school do if one of their kids tests positive?    I threw out a bunch of questions in a prior post; I'm not saying that all of these questions have to be answered the same for every school in the state, but there needs to be some guidance and consensus on the major ones. 
    • Hornet you are correct that Seminole County has started back however there are at least two schools of the 8 in the county that had to shut down work outs due to a Covid case.    Kids and coaches will contract Covid during the season, the question is how do we handle it at the high school level?  Do we shut down the program for a week, two weeks, etc...or do we sit the kid or coach who is sick?  We need a statewide policy as to how this will work.  ALL schools should treat a positive case in each sport the same.  We all know public schools can not afford to test each kid each week or even twice a season.  What if we do it the old Pop Warner days like weight check, each team must have a book and a medical professional (Dr and/or ATC) must check each athlete daily or at a minimum before each contest for temperature, and signs of sickness.  
    • That's Awesome, Congrats Coach Sammy! Ft Myers is a great program and the pair of them built it. Charlotte's oldest and most respected rival since 1926. Ironic that Sammy and Binky played over each other for their respectve schools and ended up in a long coaching career against each other. Such great legendary games, and I can't imagine another rivalry in the state that has had as many last minute turnarounds (or double OT in a  Regional Final) as this series.   And you got to see  a half dozen as the Ball Boy!
