Public vs. Private All-Star Football Game

No matter where you go these days, the issue of Public vs. Private is a hot topic when it comes to school choices and athletics.

In south Florida, where there are more football prospects than in any other area of the nation, the choice where to head to school is often confusing. While the battle will always rage on, it’s refreshing to know that there is finally an arena to settle the score.

On Jan. 9, 2010, the 1st Annual Private vs. Public All-Star High School Football Game will take place at Miami’s Monsignor Pace High School, 15600 N.W. 32nd Ave., Miami Gardens.

The event, sponsored by Trainersrus.net and promoted by the Miami Herald, Elite Scouting Services and the Miami Dolphins High School Gridiron Show on WQAM (560 AM Radio), will kickoff at 6:30 p.m.

Teams are currently being put together, featuring some of the best public and private school players in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. All rosters and game information will be posted in the Miami Herald as well as on radio.

In addition to the all-star game, Trainersrus.net will also host a high school combine for rising juniors in the region with registration beginning at 8 a.m. and the combine getting started at 8:30 a.m. on the same day as the game.

The information gathered at the combine will not go to fan websites or made public. The information will be furnished directly to colleges, giving juniors a major advantage in recruiting for the Class of 2011.

Registration fee for the combine is $25 and forms can be downloaded at www.Trainersrus.net.

For information about the all-star game or combine, contact Mario Smith at 786-285-3699.

I think the Public schools are going to dominate the private sector! I have my bet with the public schools!!

What!Did I hear you say that Private school is the underdog? You better try again and look at what's really about to happen. Private school all the D way baby!

Did you see that Rakeem Cato transferred from Miami Springs to Central this past week. The county's top passer leaves his school legally (yeah right) and just happens to move into the Central feeder zone. The Florida High School Atletic Association should look into this and sanction Central. In any event while Springs will miss his playing skills they will not miss his sorry attitude and his verbal sparring with Coach Pacheco. The word around Springs is good riddance to this troublemaker.

I am excited to hear about this event. This rivalry has been ongoing from some time now. Now the public can stop all that yaking and watch the private lead the front line!

I hope that when they divide the Public/Private teams, that St. Thomas is considered a "public school team." They play in the "public" school district and therefore their players should play on the "public" school team. Otherwise, put their school in the "private" school division every year. This game is going to bring a lot of controversy if St. Thomas plays on the "private" school team, since they play in the 16-5A district during the regular season.

Football Mom,

Congratulations, you have no clue how Florida High School Football works.

ALL THE PRIVATE SCHOOLS AND ALL THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS PLAY IN THE FLORIDA HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION(FHSAA). NOWHERE DOES IT SAY IT IS FOR ONLY PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Learn what you are talking about before criticizing.

"Did you see that Rakeem Cato transferred from Miami Springs to Central this past week.

I've been involved with Miami-Dade High School football for 20 years what makes you think anything is going to change for one kid? The system has loop holes, no one cares to enforce them, and no has money to pay anyone to investigate them. There is not enough space on this blog to mention even a fraction of the cheating. Coachs just have to learn to recruit at the pop warner and optimist levels better then the next guy.

Im looking forward to seeing Shawn Weathers from Taravella HS who was one of the more exciting players i've seen play this year.

I honestly think that private school and public schools should just play one another in sports. I think it gives them a run for their money. My son plays basketball at west ridge academy they are one of the best private school out here, and they do scrimmage games against the public schools and they have won most of their games.
