Podcast: Do weak districts hurt teams’ playoff chances? 

By Jeff Greer

The first episode of “The Walkthrough” to come out after our midseason awards features five burning questions involving Palm Beach Central, Park Vista, Seminole Ridge and Village Academy, plus a discussion about weak districts hurting teams like American Heritage, Dwyer and Fort Pierce Central in the playoffs.

Now, before everyone gets all upset, we acknowledge some of the more challenging opponents in each of those districts, but the overall discussion point is this: With almost every opponent in their district clearly outmatched, do area powerhouses struggle when the postseason hits?

We also talk about takeaways from Palm Beach Central’s 45-7 rout of Park Vista; Village Academy’s big game on the big stage at Glades Day; Seminole Ridge’s return to prominence; and the impact of Leonard coach Wayne Monroe and American Heritage senior Tyler Provo returning to their teams after injuries.
