Land O'Lakes running back Tyler Peak was held out of last week's game with the flu, coach Matt Kitchie said.

Now that it's through his system, the Gators' senior is back in the lineup and slated to start Friday at Zephyrhills. Peak also had a knee bruise, but Kitchie said he could have played through that.

"He had the flu," Kitchie said. "I don't want to say he didn't have a leg injury. He had a knee bruise.
That wasn't the reason we kept him out. We kept him out becaue of the flu and we were worried about the district games."

Peak rushed 18 times for 259 yards in a 52-0 win against Ridgewood.

Also of note, Gators defensive end Anthony Kasperitis out with a hyper extended elbow he suffered in the fourth quarter of a 42-7 win against Springstead.

"It was pretty bad hyper extension," Kitchie said. "He's a week or two before even considering playing."
