Sports is serious business at times. Check that. Almost all the time.
We rank teams, athletes and way too often we project the odds of a young athlete being the next big thing at the college or pro level.

We already live in a world, at least here in Florida, where athletes can transfer freely thanks to the free agency style set-up here in the state. We are about to live in a world high school athletes can get paid.
Never did I think I’d be typing those words out in a column at any point in my lifetime. Just goes to show you to never say never.

Midnight was still a little over a couple of hours away in the eastern time zone on the night of May 24, and Pace was on a softball field in Clermont celebrating a 6A state championship that was four years in the making.
A week earlier in Fort Myers, Jay’s baseball team was on the field of the spring training home of the Minnesota Twins celebrating its first state title in more than a half century.

I wish Santa Rosa County would get out of its own way and figure out how to make an aquatics center happen.
Before the Dallas Cowboys win their next Super Bowl would be ideal. Well, on that note, you’ve got some time to get it done.

If you have seen the “Miracle on Ice” movie, you’ll remember the scene where Team USA head coach Herb Brooks has his team basically sprint back and forth on skates after a game for hours on end.
The players would do a sprint and Brooks would yell “again.” It went on for who knows how long.

Lighthouse Christian College is starting a football program. At least that is what I’ve been told from credible sources. And it’s supposed to get rolling this fall.
I also know the program has a coach in place. I’ve been told Ronnie Cottrell will be at the helm.

You are only in high school once. It may seem like, at times, the four years are never going to end, that it takes forever to get from freshman year to senior year.
But the reality is it’s over in the blink of an eye.
