BOOKER T WASHINGTON VS ST THOMAS WEEK 1 SHOWDOWN..THOUGHTS.!??

Recommended Posts

It can be controversial, but if a parent wants their child in a better program they'll move them. Its not just SoFla. I played a year in Tampa(pre-Armwoods existence) it was going on there too. Tampa Tech, King, and Hillsborogh. Unwritten rule is If you dont wanna be here haul a@#.

When did you go? I remember Chamberlain had a state title appearance in 2001. Yet had never won a playoff game before that year. I believe they lost to Naples in that game with Dwyane Coleman at RB he was a STUD!!

Its friendly football conversation. You should always be proud of your alma mata. My moms still talks about Booker T. , pops brags about Northwestern, and I'm a Carol City parent. A lot of pride in the family. lol

Your family is all over the place huh? lol Maurice Crum I remember him. He was a pretty good player with the Canes in the late 80s-early 90s.

yeah, its made rivarys feel too friendly, might be why no one seems to respect the Columbia and Suwanee rivary, used to feel like a rivary, but its so friendly when game ends, no bad blood, no anger, just another border battle rivary, it sometimes seems like its lost its edge

There are two teams in my opinion that can end the streak in Florida:

St Thomas and Central. Those two. Anyone else isn't even close. 

Something to think about.

 

In 2011 Cocoa took BTW into OT. BTW pulled the rabbit out of the hat on a 4th and 15 busted FG when Harris scrambled and threw a desperation pass for a TD. They missed the Xtra point attempt. It was good enough for the win after BTW sacked Cocoa on 3rd and 4th downs.

 

2012 BTW finished in the top 25 nationally and defeated a very young Cocoa Team. Cocoa doesn't get the transfers like BTW.

 

BTW was National Champs in 2013 and rightly so. They totally smashed Cocoa in the regional final. They also defeated Nationally top 25 teams along the way to their Nat Championship season.

 

How soon we forget. 2014, Cocoa held BTW to the fewest points of the season and lost by 2 points. That young is maturing.

 

2915, Cocoa has arrived. The team that saw BTW in 2012 has grown up. Add this game to the list of teams that have a chance to end the streak.

And when they get to Orlando I bet they draw Bolles again because no one up North in 4A has showed me much in terms of knocking them off. 

Raines beat Bolles regular season 2 years running but lost to them in the playoffs. Call it Bolles revenge... so there is another team in 4A north that has potential. Never say never.

Don't use the transfer excuse in 2012 to say that why yall lost.. 95% of that team was together since their Optimus days playing for overtown rattlers... Last year game BTW led wire to wire and that same desperation pass Treon threw in 11 you can say that last year with your qb... I knew you were even surprise that pass got completed... Will see this year... BTW have a lot of unknown talent like the 2011 team... We will see myfreind....

When was the last time or how has BTW done in big game public underdog situations.  Some kids/coaches feed off this stuff and some think the other team is actually the underdog.  We all know see/hear through news and social media what STA will bring to the table....not so much with BTW other then they are down.  Like Zoe Boy says....the unknown and BTW could be a dangerous combo to underestimate.

Programs like BTW reload. Very excited for this game. Harriott will have Aquinas ready to go that much I do know.

I bet he still has that 2 rd playoff loss in 2013 in the back of his mind...

    • Bouie had  surgery (6 weeks) Muck Bowl/Playoffs maybe. Cunningham and Kinsler 2/3 more weeks (knee injuries)
    • Well then, our whole society must be ludicrous.  It's because of a little thing called loyalty, which sometimes gets in the way of "playing the best players."  All you bosses out there, tomorrow go into your workplace and announce you are demoting and promoting people based strictly on their level of talent, ignoring tenure, and see what anarchy prevails.   And them imagine doing that every year.  The real world does not work like this crazy little world of transferring we have going on right now.  We have created an expectation in our young people that if you work hard you will "get the job."  Well, we all know it's not that simple.  Maybe that's why we are hearing stories of young people quitting jobs because they haven't been promoted within six months of starting, leaving disappointed.  "Paying your dues" is very much a part of the real world, like it or not We like to blame the FHSAA for not doing its job, just as some like blaming the government for not doing its job.  As coaches and supervisors, its all about taking personal responsibility for our decisions.  Our jobs are not simply to play the best players.  Anyone can do that.  The truly  masterful hs coach knows how to build a team and build character in his players.  And understands how bumping a tenured player for that hot new transfer might be great for the short term, but disastrous for the long term.  How many of you out there would like working for a boss with a track record like that, knowing you might get demoted next year so that energetic young intern can have your job?   Do I sound crazy?  Maybe so.  But I say with the utmost confidence that some of our FL hs coaching legends of the past would not be waiting on the FHSAA to tell them what they can/should do or not do.  These guys had a moral compass they followed.  They made decisions based on what was the "right thing to do"...not necessarily what everyone else was doing.       
    • The play in question is the first play in this highlight collection. It is replayed from a better, wider angle at 00:51 through the conclusion. Best I can tell, they call it on the WR #10. What are your thoughts? http://www.hudl.com/v/2BjAPe
    • how long are all of them out?? 
    • You really think Niceville is good this year ?
