Trenton Football

Recommended Posts


The Maxpreps new State rankings came out this morning and Trenton Moved up to #21. I think thats the highest we have ever been ranked. Made the top 25 State Wide  

Nice for Trenton football.   When I see Trenton ranked higher than teams like Cocoa, Miami Columbus, Hallandale, Wakulla, South Dade, Bishop Moore, Oxbridge academy, American Heritage Delray-      it is very impressive.

Crazy but I can't take anything from them...They have fully disposed of everything in their way with ease.   The thing that sticks out to me with them being in that caliber of teams is the "Str." or Strength of Schedule at 12.8 in a land of rankings where it may average about 35 "Str." .  Again, there is a formula to this and what they are doing to the teams on their schedule is astounding...I wonder if they could get invited to the Burger King Bowl in December?

That's just proof that Str is not as important as wins and margin of victory in some of the poll's, I do understand what you are saying but a public school with 300 kids most of the time will not schedule the types of teams you are talking about at least not a full schedule of them.  

I would like to see them in the Burger King Bowl played after States at FAU in December tested vs a 3A, 4A , or 5A school.  I think it would be interesting to see how they would fair, and since it is a late bowl game after the season it can't hurt anyone.  Is this arguably Trenton's best team in the school's history?  That remains to be seen of course over the next few weeks but on paper I would think it is up there.

I was told the Burger King bowl series is not going to happen this year, I do think this is Trenton's best team but the 2013 team was good as well i feel like what separates this team from the 2013 team is a more explosive offense and more experience in the defensive back field.

Credit Madison for not quitting. They were down 27-6 and ready to roll over and die and they fought back. It was a great game and they were the 1st team to rush for over 100 yards on Trenton's defense.

Impressive.  It sounds like Madison came in with a solid game plan and stuck to it.  Just came up a couple scores short....

Congratulations Tigerfan1 on a historic season for Trenton football! I don't know how many Seniors that you lose, but with such an established program...I see Trenton football being successful for a long time.

This was a great year! I remember saying a few times during the spring when we played in the referee game at Ocala Trinity we played 2 schools that where much larger and just put a beat down on both of them that Trenton was going to be in Orlando again if they could just get past Madison County.  I dont know what we will do next year but i do think we will competitive in 1A.  

Thanks Small School, Browardhandicapper, and Columbiafan for all your kind post on this board, As we all know another board that i wont mention has slung crap at Trenton all year and some of them are still at it, I am about done over there and i don't think i will go back next year.

 

Very Proud Trenton Tiger

    • 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.
