8A Realignment News


Recommended Posts

The Orlando Sentinel published information that I cannot find online anywhere.

On October 7th, the regions and playoff bracket will be announced.

Dr. Phillips and 7 other Orange County teams have switched over to region 3, which has Miami Palmetto in it.

Theoretically one of those teams could play another Orlando-area team in the state championship.

Awesome, thanks. 

Teams that stand out in 8A to me (may be missing some, like Ocoee, Winter Park, Sandalwood)

Region 1 - Seminole, Bartram Trail, Oakleaf, Mandarin

Region 2 - Apopka, Timber Creek

Region 3 - Dr. Phillips, Miami Palmetto, Vero Beach

Region 4 - Osceola, Sarasota Riverview, Tampa Plant

Oakleaf is the other team in region 1 that should be solid. Lots of talent on that roster

Probably won't happen, but a final four of....

Seminole-Apopka

Dr. Phillips-Osceola

....would be crazy!

It would guarantee O Town's metro area a State title! That would be huge. But it would also be tainted with only Palmetto from Dade/Broward/Palm Beach representing.

Any other contenders outside Columbus opting out?

Thanks for the info about Oakleaf. I’ll keep an eye on them!

Deerfield Beach is one for sure. Western has also been very good the last two years (not sure who they had coming back this year, though). Some of the Palm Beach 8A teams are also decent, but I don't think any of them would beat Orlando's best.

It all comes down to the blind draw. You can easily have the two best teams in a Region playing each other in the first round.

    • I think @ColumbiaHighFan2017classhits it on the head. I will add one more thing as well. Money matters: you are talking about upper middle class families, a school with a free and reduced lunch rate of 7% with high academic scores. Parents are going to put the money into training/camps/clinics, kids don't have to focus on school or sports or job. They can do sports, get decent grades and have parents provide everything else. Better academics gives principals better flexibility in who they hirer. They can hire another on-campus football coach. A growing area allows football coaches to get staff positions at local elementary and middle schools as PE teachers (instead of a more rigorous math, English, science, or social studies).
