Nature Coast senior RB Matt Breida said in a text message that he should be able to play in the Sharks’ season finale against Springstead. Breida, Tampa Bay’s No. 2 rusher, strained his back in the second half of Nature Coast’s 14-7 loss to Hernando and did not return for precautionary reasons.

He went to the emergency room Friday night, and doctors told him he needs to rest but should be able to play against the Eagles.

The back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher has college offers from Toledo, Akron, UMass, Georgia Southern and others.
