Don't sleep on Glades Central

Recommended Posts


Much respect for Glades Central and the Muck as a whole. However, I want to see them prove it on the field. I'll wait till December in Orlando to crown GC 4A Champions. If they make it there. 

Could very well be Glades Central vs BTW if Cocoa goes North.

speaking of competition, same here, if we are good enough to make it to Orlando in December there is only one team I want to play in that championship and it would be STA bc if we really are good enough to get there I know STA would be the best the 7A south has to offer and if we could find a way past them I would know for a fact that we would have earned it, if not then at least we would know we played the best in the 7A and would be cool to get to play one of top teams in nation in a big game like that which would be much more fullfiling then being knocked out in the first round, and being in Orlando we would have plently of motivation for 2016 season

The muck guys how's the mood in Belle Glades. I know much isn't offered in that area but I remembered when ESPN did that show on the muck bowl it was roughly 15,000 people in attendance. Another instance was when Glades Central played Dwyer and it was ESPN televised and I remember on both instances the community, alumni and students all came out. One guy said every Friday he'd cook for the football team. Winning isn't what it used to be, but do people still go to the games and do they see high hopes in the future. I can tell you in Miami people won't show unless you're winning.

STA,thats fair, but we prefer it to stay it the way it. We dont like losing but love the trill of competition. We're Glades Central! We welcome all Challenges including B.T.W.

I understand talk is a way of life in FL. For me I never liked talk because everytime I would STA would lose. Examples being Bosco last year and those years we lost to Lakeland in the mid 00s lol. 

I'd love to play GC again though. I don't think we have ever beaten you guys, if we have it was a while ago.

Let me say this about Booker T. Washington. Everyone is saying they won't be the same this year which I understand why, however there district is easy. If the Tornadoes win streak end this year I still see them making it to states and winning. St. Thomas, Central and Columbus will be the 3 biggest opponents.

I never said they wouldn't win state, I just said they wouldn't finish 15-0, STA and Central are very talented and BTW is not as strong as past years, and a new coach, will all come into play and end the streak, florida talent is just too good for a streak like that to continue

    • You keep saying they won’t make it, but both Trinity and Pahokee are sitting in playoffs spots. Both teams win one more game and they will be locked in. Anything happens after that. 
    • My team is sitting at 4-4 right now and going by the latest rpi we are in 10th place.  If we win out we have a shot of getting in but also might need a little help.  I look at some of the ones ahead of us rpi wise and honestly feel that we played a little tougher schedule.  Of course we have a few bad teams on the schedule that hurt our rpi,; games we won by blowout.   While the games we lost were to tough opponents and were fun games to watch, two determined in the last minute, I can't help but think the math works against us.  
    • Before you indict Plant or the system (and assuming this were to happen), I think you have to look at two things . . . in addition to the combined record of the teams that Plant has lost to this year (41-7; 41-3 if you take out losses to other teams in the group of six):  First, until the changes a few years back (3 years ago??), district runners up automatically made the playoffs.  Because Plant won its district 14 years in a row, it never had to worry about sliding in the playoff backdoor as a runner up.  But that would be the case this year if we were still operating under the old system that was in place for more years than I can count (and, again, assuming Plant wins this week).  Second, I think you have to look at the other teams in Region 2.  Take out the top 6 teams or so (for purposes of argument, Dr. Phillips, Kissimee Osceola, Lake Nona, Steinbrenner, Sarasota Riverview and Newsome and perhaps Lennard if you want to add a 7th team) and there really aren't that many, if any, other playoff-caliber teams.   Perhaps I have just proven your point and that it is the new system, and not any one team, that will deserve to be indicted if all that comes to fruition.  But just remember, the reward that a 8 or 7 seed gets for sneaking into the playoffs is a road game against the best or second best team in the region.  In other words, after week one of the playoffs, it really becomes a moot point.
    • How will a promotion/regulation help tougher teams fill schedules for non conference games?

    • I think a team that loads up on highly difficult teams (Trinity Christian, Pahokee) and wins half or less are definitely going to struggle in 1A-4A to make the playoffs. I said at the beginning of the year that Pahokee would not make the playoffs because of how difficult their schedule was. Trinity Christian the same thing. You can schedule all the hard teams you want, but ultimately you have to win some of those games. If 4-6 Plant makes the playoffs, I think that will be an indictment of the system, just like last year an 0-9 Gadsden County making the playoffs was.  

      As for playing 4 cupcakes, if you are a middle of the road team for your classification (Suwannee would be a good example), then it would be easier to schedule local cupcakes because nobody thinks you are going to dominate them. As a result, you end up with 6-7 wins and a good chance of making the playoffs.  The FHSAA is trying to find ways for tough teams to play tough teams, and because teams can make their own schedules teams can refuse to play tough teams or end up traveling 3+ hours to find a game. The reality is that promotion/relegation would slowly push teams to their correct spot.
