Clearwater Central Catholic: Spring football capsule

Around the county in 30 days

A daily spring preview of every football program in the county.

Clearwater Central Catholic

Coach: Mike Jalazo

(seventh season, 44-28)

Last season: 7-5

(lost 32-10 to Frostproof in region final)

District: Class 2B-5

(Berkeley Prep, Frostproof,

Sarasota Cardinal Mooney)

Key losses: RB/DB Anthony Cochran, PK/P Joey Ijjas, QB Brent Henderson, OL/DL Kyle Rettig, TE/LB Danny Wood.

Who's back: QB/DB Ian Coia, TE/DL Paul Freedman, QB/LB Bobby Lyons (left), RB Micah Poole

What's new: The Marauders will have plenty of new faces after losing 22 seniors. Jalazo said he likes his skill position players, particularly Micah Poole and Paul Freedman, both of whom could put up big numbers. Ian Coia and Bobby Lyons will split time at quarterback. Both lines have young but unproven talent.

Audible: "This is one of the best group of skill guys we've had here. We have a lot of athleticism and versatility. We just have to see how we develop up front." — Jalazo.

Did you know?: The Marauders have made the playoffs 12 straight seasons, the county's longest active streak.

  2. Ronde Barber: Want intimidation? Look at past Bucs teams


    Ronde Barber says these days "it's hard to find throwbacks, where you go, 'That guy is a badass.' Where do you find that now? It's such a show-off sport." (Times 2012)
  3. Rays blow lead in ninth, lose in 10 to Rangers (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RF Steven Souza Jr. ran in rightfield before batting practice under the watchful gaze of the Rays training staff and manager Kevin Cash. Afterward, Souza told Cash he could use one more day of rest before playing on the left hip he strained Wednesday in Oakland.

    Steven Souza Jr., hugging Mallex Smith after Smith’s solo home run in the eighth inning, feels relief after tests are negative on his injured hip.
