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...

    • What happened to their HC Kepa Sarduy? And I'm wondering why Coach Thomas would go from a 3A private school that was just about to possibly go deep in the playoffs or maybe all the way to a 1A public school that hasn't been really that good for 5 years. Couldn't be the pay as I think Trinity pays their teachers pretty well. Can't imagine Union County paying any better. Would sure like to know. 
    • Somehow I don't get it. What entity is responsible for paying football coaches? Is it the Federal government, State government, or County government? If it is in fact a government entity how in the world does Georgia pay so high and Florida pays so low? What about the proceeds from the games themselves? What about the proceeds from the Boosters? I am very curious to know how the salaries are for Florida football coaches in the private and parochial schools. Is the inequity the same between Florida and Georgia the same for the privates as it is for the publics? In the last analysis what would have to be done to change the status quo for Florida? Outside of football we have a real problem in Florida with how little teachers are paid. I can't believe that a teacher with a Masters Degree makes equal to or less than a common laborer with little education. Bill Bennett, Secretary of Education from 1985 to 1989, famously stated that if the starting salary for teachers was $100,000 per year ( and we are talking about in1985 dollars) then the US would have the best teachers in the world. We would have top people in their professions, from all over the world, lining up for teaching jobs. Sadly No one took Mr. Bennett seriously.
    • Ha.   More like "Counselor, please do your own research before you walk in here and ask the Court to answer all of your legal questions -- especially when the answer to all your questions can be found in the transcript."
    • Okaloosa County pays the best.  They are Athletic Directors and get admin pay.  Matt Brunson Baker is probably one of the highest paid in Florida.   They do not have to be teacher but most are.  I'm not sure if anyone in public school is off campus but they could be.   Most assistant football coaches are paid but quite a few do not get paid.   Most public schools are allowed between 7-10 paid spots. We had 2-3 not paid at our school last year.
