A lot of people are being forced to make hard decisions around Covid-19. You have to put your family's safety first, I commend the coach. 

 

 

Definitely and I'll add something to this that I know from being a volunteer at Football for 3 years 

 

This man is a workaholic big time, he goes to church Sunday morning then goes Sunday afternoon up to the fieldhouse and encourages any player who wants to show up to go watch film 

 

I know this wasn't an easy decision but one thing he has preached since day one of being coach is family, both his family at home and his family at that Football field 

 

He went to bat for his Football family and got the county to push back Football while every bordering county was starting August 24th and he made it clear he was gonna make a stand for his players and protect them because he is looking out for them and doesn't want to risk losing anyone else after columbia already had an assistant coach pass away around a month ago from this virus and he doesn't want to risk that happening to any other coaches or any players and right now he is looking after his family and is standing by the very principles he has taught these kids every single day he is out there 

 

It's one thing to preach something in a locker room before a game, it's another to live by it in your daily life 

 

He definitely lives by what he preaches to the players and puts in a lot of time to help these players even after the season with getting to college which he has done at a higher rate than any previous coach at Columbia has done

So, are you number 42 or number 53?  :D

 

All joking aside, I give the coach credit for making a tough decision.   I'm sure he has preached to his team how important family is.  With this decision, he showed his players that he is willing to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

A little too literal

    • Very true. The same applies to Orlando. But if you follow the game carefully, you know. In the Orlando area, it is not always active recruiting. Some programs tend to sell themselves. 
    • Youth football, I would agree that kickoffs will be eliminated within a year or two. High School Football might take a little longer. 
    • Though I will say at least SFL is more transparent with transfers, up here in North and Central FL many counties the transfers are never reported by the media, for example a team up here like Lee probably gets similar transfers to what STA would get in a normal year but most people wouldn't know that as the media up in Jacksonville never cover transfers so it would seem from outside that they are all homegrown talent but a lot of stuff happens behind closed doors in jacksonville only for the media to look the other way 
    • No doubt there is some stacking of teams in metro Orlando. But even with that, it is not as bad as down south. There it is totally out of hand and has been even before the era of open enrollment. That is because, coaches openly recruit the kids from the pee wee leagues. There are literally no guard rails. The population density which is greater than in Orlando makes it easy even if the kid has no reliable transportation. 
    • The popularity of 7v7 has increased the contact between the players, especially on the all-star teams that have been created. Just as players in the NBA have been trying to assemble super teams, these high schoolers are working at the same goal. A team I follow is much improved this season as the result of almost 10 transfers, with almost all performing important starting roles. The transfer rule has made this possible.
