Armwood, down to its No. 3 tailback in last week's 22-9 playoff win against Sickles, should have its full complement of ball carriers for Friday's Class 4A playoff showdown at Largo.

Sophomore rushing leader Matt Jones (pictured), who played sparingly against Sickles with a strained calf, practiced with the first-team offense Tuesday morning and appears at or near full speed.

Senior Sherman Jessie (ankle) worked out in shorts with a trainer, but Coach Sean Callahan said Jessie should practice Wednesday.

The only glaring injury concern at this point: middle linebacker D.J. Hitchman, who still is nursing a right hamstring injury near his knee. Hitchman, Armwood's second-leading tackler, clearly was still favoring the leg while working with a trainer Tuesday. Callahan said his status remains uncertain.

"I think we might dress him but he'll be strictly an emergency-type situation," Callahan said.
