Three weeks into the season and this past week really shook things up . . . LOTS of big games that impacted the rankings. The type of week that makes it a little harder to come up with that really good song that i can use to introduce the week. But then, using a particularly inspired piece of memory . . . A film that I saw in the movie theater in 1969. If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_It's_Tuesday,_This_Must_Be_Belgium Ten games on Tuesday made an impact on the lacrosse scene. That's actually Michael Constantine in this scene, who recent movie goers recognize as Gus from the My Big Fat Greek Wedding Movies. A pretty funny scene as an American and a German who fought the battle in WWII at this...
Okay, finally we have a pollster who actually SAW a couple of games! Damn, it's great to get out of the house! Viruses suck. Four of the Top 7 in the Preseason Poll have already tasted defeat . . . and that does not include Oxbridge. For those who are new to this poll please understand that I do not rank the IMG National or Varsity programs as they are not eligible for FHSAA playoff consideration and I see them as a separate entity dedicated to developing a player and team that makes it an apples and oranges comparison to traditional high schools. This is not a slight to them, it is just that they market themselves nationally, not at the Florida level. Oxbridge did fall to IMG Varsity last week but those games play no role in my polling decisions. Jupit

It's that time again! For your intrepid reporter to act like he knows what he's talking about . . . Yes, it's time for America's Top 20! Oops . . . wrong Top 20 . . . but Casey Kassem was really something back in the day . . . I still listen to his Top 40's on Sirius 70's on 7 on the weekend while driving! Well, I'm kind of tired of using the same Let's Get Ready To Rumble video as the intro so let's go with something else . . . How about a more positive thought for those teams that are looking to move up the food chain? From the great 70's TV show Soul Train with Don Cornelious? Rufus with Chaka Khan and Tell Me Something Good? Kids, this stuff beats Kanye any day . . . Have to say Lady Gaga
Congratulations to Charlie for his choice and good luck in the future! Club Affiliations: Team Florida and LCO Charlie wrote in to us: "I want to first off thank my high school coaches, Coach Robinson and Hogan for always pushing me on and off the field. Robinson put all his energy into helping me achieve my goal by bettering my game to prepare me for the next level. I also want to thank Coach West, Spaulding, and Goldberg with Team Florida for giving me the opportunity to play with the best in the state against some of the best talent in the county.

I also want to give a special thank you to Coach Shassian, for pushing me to
