Badbird, I don't know you well enough to ask, but I am wondering which coaching club is more exclusive.   :D

I will give an unauthorized answer for Badbird. The 300 club is better.

With that said, Badbird was an excellent coach and I understand why he feels the way he does. One stinging loss was in the third round of the 2003 (or was it 2004, I could be off a year) playoffs against Edgewater. Apopka was coming off a big win over Sandalwood and the fans were feeling we had a chance. Unfortunately, Apopka was plagued with unforced errors in the game and dropped a reasonably close one at College Park. Bobby Raugh put the nail in the coffin with a touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Edgewater went on to lose the title game against a Miami team.

I think there are 5 coaches with 300 wins.  Only one coach beat me 4 times (probably because I didn't coach enough games).  :D

My brief coaching career here is how I faired vs those 5

Corky Rogers never played but it wouldn't have been good

Bill Castle 5-2 not many can say they have 5 wins vs probably the best coach in Florida history

George Smith 0-1 what coulda shoulda been

Gene Cox before my time

Bill Gierke 2-7 and now you know why I'm not a fan of his.  He owned me.  Great coach.

ColumbiaFan told me you are like 0-5 against him in pickems.  Is that true?

 Crazy that he was forced into retirement from the orange county public school system after 35 years. 

 Thanks for your service, now get the hell out of here!!!

He elected DROP, so their hands were tied so as to speak.

Hey everybody, I am from Full Sail's Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting. I will be calling one or two of Orangewood Christian's home games. They have one this Friday and I might call it or I might not but I want to be prepared if I do to offer any fans that watch the livestream a good experience. I just moved here last year from California so I do not know much information about Florida High school sports. Can anyone send me the best sites to find coach Gierke's career information? I am struggling to find up to date sources. I found a good article from 2013 in the Orlando Sentinel but obviously that was only 2 years into his tenure at Orangewood. Anyone willing to help can email me info straight to my email or I will be checking this thread hourly. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. I attached the conformation email that I was sent just so you guys know this is legit.

As a head coach Bill Gierke was 4-0 vs badbird.  Pisses me off every time I think about it.   That's all you need to know.  Google search orangewood maxpreps and you can find how they did each year after that.  Maxpreps can have errors and often times does so be careful

2019 They went 7-5 lost in the second round of their playoffs

2018 They went 6-3 lost in the first round

    • 42-7 IMG   Glad I didn't go (or really wasn't allowed too) IMG's games are dull to start with, no real fans, cheerleaders from another school, a pep band with no allegiance to the school, no pizzazz...(and that was pre China Flu days) Add in that most of their games are like this...blowouts... No doubt you see some quality players who all will be playing on Saturday's but... Imagine I would have been bored by halftime.
    • Only time will tell
    • They will trust me 
    • Hypothetically speaking, I highly doubt Madison would go unscathed playing the teams Bayside out of all schools had to play from the past 15 years. 
    • So why is it when Madison was in the same class as Cocoa they didn't make it to the finals? All because a team gets transfers doesn't mean they recruited. You make it seem as though if any team gets any type of transfer that they had to recruit. Alot of times teams get transfers that are returning back to their original school they would have been zoned for to begin with. Also, I highly doubt Madison could beat IMG any time soon. I see that match up turning out the same way IMG vs U Lab was. Also, I doubt Madison would hang with Edgewater. So for your so called Mad Dynasty, here's to hoping this season they get classified with teams they should normally play in the playoffs. If they run the table easily then touché, but I love your confidence. Idk about your bravado though lol. Yes, Madison is a great small school but you talk them up as if they are and will be a regular national power.
