Important Football Program Announcement
Creekside’s School Leadership has determined that the football program is not competing at an expected level. Although we have not realized the desired progression of our football program, we value the service and commitment of Coach Jeff Schaum. Effective immediately and until further notice, Guy Harris, Athletics Director will assume interim leadership of all football program matters.
New Football Playoff Format
The Florida High School Athletic Association board of directors recently voted to approve a new football playoff format. Beginning with the 2017 season, district play will be eliminated in Classes 1A-4A, with teams making the playoffs based on a points system. Classes 5A-8A will retain districts, with the district champion receiving an automatic playoff bid.
For Classes 1A-4A, no region or district play will be required, as each school will control its own schedule. Four teams from each region (16 total) will make the playoffs based on the new points system.
District play for Class 5A-8A will remain, with 32 teams qualifying for the playoffs in each class. District champions will receive an automatic bid to the playoff and will receive a 1-4 seed based on the new points system. Four wild cards will be taken from each region based on points following the conclusion of Week 11.
In all eight classes, the higher seed will host.
Eric Frank Named Coach of the Year

Coach Frank was selected as the Coach of the Year because, above all, he strives to create an environment where the student athletes can achieve personal success, be an integral member of a team, and learn valuable life lessons to help mold them into future leaders and positive contributors of our society.
