Last night we played a 9-0 team. Now, they are 10-0. I though our players played hard & well enough to win, but we coaches dropped the ball. Poor clock management & some wrong calls on offense cost us the game. I take blame as do the other coaches.
 At least we are in the playoffs.

Our first round game should be tough. We play the number two seed whom is big fast & very good.

If it makes you feel any better, we played the 4th best team, a team some have seen on tv, were shut out by them, and they are the 4th best team in the state. We are now playing the 1 seed.

The trip home on a bus with kids who will be happy the season is over, for 3.5 hrs? I may be in Prison.

LOL!

7 hours on a bus is killer. I always hated the long bus rides.

We have a chance because we can score, but these guys are very good. 4 or the front 7 are D1 cats & 2 of the back 4. I just watched their FS come from 9 yds deep to make a tackle 3 yds in the backfield against Apopka.

Our bus ride is about 45 minutes so not too bad.

Plenty of talent. Just not a lot of work done on our side. We play 2 defensive tackles that are supposedly D1 SEC commits. The defensive ends are also D1.  We are in for a long night. Might be running clock in first quarter. Suppose to better than team that beat us by no less than 7 TDS(I am embarrassed)

Ugh! That sounds rough. How is all that talent on Defense getting beat up?

Our D has no major talent & is very young. We start 6 sophomores & 3 juniors, we have only 1 senior that starts.

On Offense we have a couple of players who will be D1 next year.

The funny thing is we get asked every week how we can play the schedule we play. I still am unhappy because I know we can be better. I feel we blew the game Friday night not the players. They played hard all 48  minutes.

That's our full bracket.

Joe

I thought that was who you were playing. That defense is brutal. Good luck with that DT.

Our season is over, it ended last night with a total thrashing. We were beaten in every phase of the game, & it's not like I can say we played with no effort. Simply they were & are better than us.

It was a long & difficult season, & of course I wanted it to be a little longer. I believe this group accomplished many good things & I am proud of them. We played many teams that had superior talent & mostly competed. Sometimes I felt we won in spite of their limitations. Youth was on our side as we played with many underclassmen.

Sorry to hear this Joe but your positive attitude is encouraging.

When all of this youth matures.... :)

Sucks but the season was an improvement over last year. With the youth you have on the team next year looks to be another gain.

Thanks guys, it was definitely a step in the right direction. I just don't know if we will ever be able to compete on a talent level.

With the rules what they are nowadays, if you keep winning you will get players.
