Which one is that?   Calpreps which is only known on this site or maxpreps which I've heard coaches before ask "is that the stupid computer system that can't even put in games correctly"

It’s $40,000 for PRE-Kindergarten!!!    Lol. What can they possibly be teaching a three-year-old that is worth $40,000???

It's about the status of the parents. Not the pre-K education. Totally about vanity.

I know that you're annoyed when people hold you accountable for what you say.

What I said was a fact......guess what?

It's still a fact.

That's what is spazzing you out.

Not only that, but my observation about AHP being the most talented team in South Florida still holds true as well.

You lose at least 3 times in the same thread. That may be a record for you. Sorry, man.

STA doesn't have one player ranked in the Top 50 in Florida in the 2022 class. That ever happen before?

STA currently has no 4*s and NO top players in Florida per the recruiting sites. It looks odd to me and everyone else. You say it's happened plenty of times, but can't a name a year.

First year I looked at was 2008.

Zero players in the top 50.

And remember what I said.  I also said low 4-star players.

Rivals lists 4-stars as having between a 6.0 and 5.8 rating.

So I'll give you 6.0 and 5.9 as "high" 4-stars.

This is the breakdown of STA's rivals database.

5-STAR: 6

4-STAR (HI): 18

4-STAR (LO): 23

3-STAR: 80

2-STAR: 92

Those are insane numbers from a depth standpoint. There have probably been a few that were only awarded stars because they play for STA and attend camps in a major metro area. But even considering that, the depth of legitimate FBS players is astonishing.

Mater Dei and SJB look like they'll be able to match those numbers soon. All three are large private schools with large, wealthy parents/alumni bases and are located smack in the middle of the two most talent-rich metro areas in the country. The only way any of the three will never not be elite is if we see a cultural shift to where it's no longer cool to have most of the top players join together at a handful of schools. STA is more "protected" in the sense that there is much less competition in their area from private schools with the resources and will to compete with them compared to what's in Orange County, CA.

Finch can spin it however he likes, but the STA 2022 class has zero 4* prospects and just four 3* prospects.....

A bit skimpy for STA standards......I'm not saying STA can't be good or will be terrible....that has nothing to do with it.

2021 possible draft or UDFA for AHP

Patrick Surtain II

Tyson Campbell

Anthony Schwartz 

Marco Wilson

TJ Slaton

Khalil Herbert

Nick Eubanks

That would be impressive and probably some sort of record.

Top four listed participated in the 4x100 :) 

Schwartz and Campbell’s Combine 40 I’ve been wondering about since they were sophs in HS running track.  There’s a faster DB from UGA (name escapes me) than Campbell, who will be running the Combine.

I'm a bit hesitant to read much into these rankings given the extreme disruptions to camps, recruiting visits etc. STA regularly has 3* and 4* players who did very little the year prior, but impressed at camps or when scouts attended practices. Now, with a dearth of such scouting opportunities, it's very hard to rate a kid 3* or above when they compiled little game film or stats. I wouldn't be surprised if, after they take the field, everyone realizes that some of their previously unknown, zero-stars are really ever bit worthy of 3* or above.

Yeah we've talked about it before. Certainly some of them benefited from being at STA and/or the spill over effect of playing with other starred players.

Mater Dei has had more 5-star players (7 to 6). Their blue chip numbers breakdown like this:

5-STAR: 7

4-STAR (HI): 12

4-STAR (LO): 18

So they're not far behind in terms of blue chips (47 to 37) but with far less college and NFL production.

The idea of STA being protected is just not true.

STA, American Heritage, Cardinal Gibbons and Chaminade-Madonna are all much closer geographically than the Trinity League schools. If the largest distance between those schools was taken into account (40 miles) then Columbus would be considered a competitor for STA.

And that South Florida league would be just as good and certainly deeper than the Trinity League.

If this link is correct Mater Dei has produced only 12 NFL players with 2 active.....Mater Dei is obviously a new kid on the block.

That's crazy, huh

Mater Dei was winning Southern Section championships back in the 1950s and 1960s before STA was even called STA.

They have two Heisman Trophy winners.

They won two mythical national championships before STA won one.

They've been around. They just aren't at STA's level of NFL production. Granted nobody is.

St Aug (NOLA) is and they started playing football in the 1960's...

 

Mater Dei started playing football in 1950..first full season in 1951.

http://www.materdei.org/football/html/monarch-history/year-by-year-game-scores/1951.html

Mater Dei is just not great at producing NFL players. And, it's odd really.

Makes a person think.

No, they're not.

Half of their NFL players came before 2000.

They've been remarkably consistent but not as prodigious.

Only one school has ever had double digits in the league at one time. STA's done it in 9 different seasons.

St John Bosco, CA is another new kid on the block.

..only produced 7 NFL players in their history...2 active. Again, if link is correct.

They do well with a enrollment of 542....St Aug has never been terribly big. Granted, it's an all-black private school.

What is STA enrollment numbers boys only?
