State Final Trivia-Unique 6A Title Game


Recommended Posts

In 2005, something unique happened at the state final series that has only happened once in FHSAA state series history.  What was it? 

There could be more than one answer, but there is one particular I am looking for.  For instance, some teams won their one and only state title in school history, but it is not that.

Was 2005 the year they held the finals in Miami, but in two different stadiums for some reason because of delays (hurricanes maybe) or was it the year that the Muck dominated the finals with 4 teams making it (Clewiston, Glades Central, Pahokee, and Glades Day)?

1. Of the two times the finals were held in Miami/Dade, this is the only one in which not a single Dade County team played for a title. 

2. The large class title, 6A, final featured a Palm Beach County team versus a Broward County team. I don't think that's ever happened before or after. 

3. Nease and Palm Beach Gardens won their one and only title to date

The finals were held in two different stadiums in Miami, but that is not the answer.

Not in 6a but they have had Broward vs Palm Beach very recently, twice

 

Chaminade Madonna vs Oxbridge Academy in 2017

Chaminade Madonna vs Kings Academy 2018 

 

 

3 is correct but idk if that is the specific answer, honestly I think it's likely the very last one you mentioned with no Dade team playing for a state title

That happened a year later in 2006

Glades Day def North Florida Christian 

Pahokee def Trinity Catholic

Bolles def Clewiston 

Glades Central def  (undefeated) Pine Forest

Has it happened since 2005?

You are warm.  Think in even broader terms.

The 6A, largest class title game was between two South Florida teams which were less than 30 miles away from each other geographically? 

The 6A title game was the only FHSAA state final game in the largest classification ever played by teams from ___________ counties.

In 2005 Trinity Catholic went undefeated and beat Pahokee in the championship game. Robert Love broke the all time pass completion record in spite of the Celtics defeating his team. I believe this might be it.

Wrong answer...Not even close. LOL

    • FSU is baaaaad.    But, good for those Florida boys!
    • I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people who routinely got their butts kicked when they played football. 
    • The running clock does not assure that a team will back off and avoid injuring players on the opposing team. Having officials fail to enforce the play clock during the running clock can add to the frustrations of players that are hoping to get some actual playing time late in the game, especially when it's apparent that the trailing team is making no effort to run plays in the prescribed time. I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people that came up with participation awards to make every kid a "winner". 
    • I suspect the reason why there is a 'running clock' rule now is because too many times, the opposing coaches didn't see eye to eye on how many points were enough (or how many points were too many) - especially in rivalry games, or when the subs should start playing, or when timeouts should be called, or what plays are appropriate to run, etc.   To a certain extent, the running clock rule was implemented to save a coach from his own pride.  Remember a few years back?  In the third quarter, running clock was "optional" for the team that was getting beat.  It wasn't until the 4th quarter that it was mandatory.   But, too many 'old school' coaches felt like agreeing to running clock in the 3rd quarter was a sign of weakness or, as you put it, throwing in the towel.  So they refused to do it.   And the 35 point differential at the beginning of the 3rd quarter turned into a 50+ differential by the time the 3rd quarter ended.  Hurt egos are one thing.  Hurt players are another story.   I'm pretty sure that's why running clock now becomes mandatory at whatever point in the second half the difference becomes 35 or more.   At that point, it's just a matter of getting the game over with a little sooner to protect the players.  Oh, and it's worth noting that not all schools are as deep as others.  Some schools are lucky to have a full squad of second-stringers. 
    • One thing I will say about some of those 8A schools in the Orlando area is that they've either never had success or they have a student population that doesn't value football. Schools that tend to be large with a heavy population of Hispanic students tend to care more about soccer, baseball and basketball than football. It's mainly because their families didn't grow up watching football so it isn't as big of a deal. A great example is Poinciana. They are historically one of the worst football schools around but they won a State Championship in basketball a few years ago. So the athletes are on the campuses for sure. But if the programs have no history of success then the athletes see no reason to play. Another factor is the laid-back transfer rules. Now, kids can essentially consolidate talent on teams. So that also adds to some of these massive blowouts - especially when districts consist of teams like Cypress Creek being made to play teams like Osceola and Lake Nona. Of course they'll get blown out. It's going to be like that for the foreseeable future though.
