We completed our season by knocking off once beaten and district
champion Palm Beach Gardens in the first round of the class 5A state
playoffs. We advanced to take on Kissimmee Osceola and play for a
chance at the regional finals. We came up short, but had another
successful campaign. We advanced as far as any team in school history
and have a bunch of juniors coming back next year.
5/3/00: We just completed our offseason and started spring
practice. This was the best offseason we have had to date. Here are
the mindboggling totals:(90 participants in program)
Bench: 61 players @200+; 25 players @250+;
8 players @300+
Clean: 52 players @200+; 34 players@225+;
18 players @250+
Parallel Squat: 43 players @300+; 19
players @350+; 15 players @ 400+; 4 players @450+; 1 player @
40: 43 @5.0 or better; 30 @ 4.79 or better;
10 @ 4.59 or better
*These gains are real. This is my fourth offseason at Seminole
and it is really starting to pay tremendous dividends. If you apply
our program, you will have these results in due time.

The Seminoles finished the season 8-3. We won the Seminole Athletic
Conference and made into the playoffs again. We did this with one of
the smallest offensive lines we have ever played with. We had three
players weighing less than 180 lbs. starting for us and we still
produced nearly 30 points a game. Those kids all lifted very hard in
the offseason, during the summer and during the season. The were able
to move 300 pounders around enough for us to make something happen in
the backfield. We had no division 1 players this year and beat 4 of
the 6 playoff teams on our schedule. Three of those made it to the
final eight in the state playoff system. We feel we are getting
closer to putting together a title run.
Currently we have been in our offseason program for about 6
weeks. We have 40 players in our football class. We have another 60
kids coming after school lifting, running, and jumping. If you build
a program, the numbers keep coming out even though it is harder to
play at Seminole High School than any other place in the County.
Building your winning program starts this time of year, not in June,
July and August.
