Clearwater 8, Osceola 0

SEMINOLE — Clearwater secured its first win of the season on Friday and Nick Gimbrone proved he is one to watch.

The Warriors (0-2) tried every angle to score, earning nine first downs in a scoreless first half. Osceola came close with 52 seconds left in the half, but Edwin McKinney's 30-yard TD run was called back on a holding penalty.

Quarterback Dylan Lantz went 6-of-16 for 97 yards, but couldn't translate big plays into a trip to the end zone.

The Tornadoes (1-1) started the third quarter with a bang. Tarrence Jackson ran the kickoff return back for a 95-yard touchdown. Gimbrone shined on special teams when a fake extra-point attempt turned into an 18-yard pass to Rob Kazanowski; the successful two-point conversion made it 8-0 Clearwater. Gimbrone also punts and landed a 60-yarder in the fourth quarter on the 1-yard line, leaving Osceola without much hope for a comeback.

    Researchers studying the link between football and chronic traumatic encephalopathy found that 99 percent of the brains donated by families of former NFL players showed signs of the neurodegenerative disease, according to a new study published Tuesday.

According to a report released on Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association, research on the brains of 202 former football players has confirmed what many feared in life -- evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a devastating disease in nearly all the samples, from athletes in the NFL, college and even high school.
