Jones V Edgewater


Recommended Posts

With Jones barley scraping by in their last 2 games by 1 point on each and Edgewater coming back on a last second fumble after being out for 2 weeks. I'm going Edgewater to win with at least 25 penalties total game given the "ego" of both teams. If Edge gets some good practice in to fix passing and their awareness I'd give em 12 on Jones. Don't know if it's just the false sense of security from the Apopka game or just Wekiva being on top of it but I'm still wondering how Jones went into OT on their senior night against now 1-3 Wekiva.

Jones is about 80% of what they were a year ago. If Edgewater is as good as they were when they beat Jones last year, I expect a 14 point win or even more.

I agree; Edgewater should win by 2-3 TDs.

Yes, Jones's biggest drop off is its defensive line. Last year, Apopka literally could not run the ball on them and had to throw it (something they hardly do) to get any offensive yards. This year, Apopka moved the ball with relative ease and were it not for fumbles (one of which was clearly unforced), Jones would have lost this year's game. 

Edgewater has many more offensive weapons than Apopka and I would be surprised if they don't score at least 30 on Jones. I only see Jones scoring a maximum of 14-17 points on Edgewater.

I just hope the game is played. You never know till Wednesday or Thursday if some teams pass their Covid-19 tests in Orange County. The only Central Florida matchup I would like to see more than this game would be Edgewater - Seminole, but that's not on the schedule this year. As for Jones - Edgewater, I think Edgewater is deeper in talent that could determine outcome late in game. Also, Edgewater's coaching staff is excellent.

EagleEye, could you clarify what you mean when you state that the "ego' of both teams will lead to at least 25 penalties in the game? Thank you.

I can't answer for EagleEye, but the following comments may lend some perspective.

Last year's game was attended by over 4,000 fans and was played with a lot of emotional intensity.  Edgewater shares a boundary with Jones, among other schools, and there tends to be a lot of emotional intensity between the schools as the game (when scheduled) is played for bragging rights. Over the last 20 years or so, when Jones was down, several Jones kids have appeared on Edgewater rosters.

I agree; this is a local rivalry game between two teams that play a very physical game of football. Expect emotions to run high and penalties should be plentiful. These kids know each other well and bragging rights will add to the intensity. I still expect Edgewater will win this based upon greater depth and talent. Next year could be entirely different as kids tend to drift between schools in Orlando as local supremacy shifts back and forth. Recruiting has destroyed the balance we used to have in Central Florida.

Partially, but not to the same extent it has in Dade country and to a lesser extent, Broward country. There, probably a total of a half dozen schools sop up just about all the talent. It has led to multiple state titles for: St Thomas, Chaminade, American Heritage, Northwestern, Central and Booker T. Washington. However, as a result, the rest of these counties' teams tend to be mediocre, with a few exceptions such as Columbus and Western (recently). The Orlando area still has talent spread out among more teams.

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.

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.

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

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.

There is also active recruiting year round in Orlando area. It gets real heavy during the 7v7 winter season when the areas top skill position players are on display at tournaments each weekend.

    • Perspective, I think that is some really great style. I think that would look great in a court room! 
    • Sorry for being absent here. Been getting a lot of things situated here in the new year plus working on All-State teams so a lot going on. Also working on relaunching a podcast so been trying to lay down the groundwork on that. One of the things I am planning on doing this year from this point forward is focus more on the board and keep a better focus on things. As for Old School Lion, all I can say at this point is I revoked him being a moderator along with everyone else until I can get a better focus on that. I may add @peezy28 back as a moderator in the near future, but the only other person at this point is going to be @SportsNut25who I have paid to do some work for me from time to time and I have a complete trust with him with things on the backend of this website. Old School Lion was also one of the ones that made the inflaming comments and I messaged him about it. Instead of having a conversation about it and why he did it, he never read it and basically walked from the message board. I won't tolerate what he did from anyone. As @Perspectivehas said, I had to make a choice and really it comes down to it, I don't have a bucket full of money to survive and defend a lawsuit. It comes down to living life as comfortably as I can in my means or fighting big bucks. I have to chose my battles wisely. If you all want to contribute and support what I do (it is not cheap... server space is not cheap either), I will soon be setting up a Patreon where you can be a Patron of this site. The Patreon will also have ties into the Podcast and the plan I have, but is all I can say for now as the plan is not final just yet.  Also, one more thing... if you all have a suggestion for me for the message board or the website itself (topics, stories, ideas, etc), please let me know here or send me a message.  Josh
    • Thanks for the fashion tip, Jambun.   I just got back from my tailor.   What do you think?   
    • Thank you for clarifying that Badbird. No one ever said anything to me about it, I just heard or read somewhere that ladies love a man in black and white vertical stripes.
