Super 7

1. Armwood (3-1): Sean Callahan gets 200th win on the field in 49-0 rout of Leto.

2. Plant (2-1): After devastating Richy Klepal news, Panthers needed this week off.

3. Robinson (4-0): Barring something unforeseen, Knights should be 9-0 entering Plant game.

4. Wharton (3-0): Idle Wildcats needed every bit of the off week with No. 5 Durant coming to town.

5. Durant (3-0): Cougars, 3-0 for first time in nine years, have allowed one touchdown in three games.

6. Hillsborough (3-0): Sloppiness at Strawberry Crest showed Terriers have some things to clean up.

7. Berkeley Prep (4-0): Bucs' second straight road win features 10-point rally in fourth quarter.


"I told the kicking coach we may go for two the rest of the year." — John Kelly, Strawberry Crest coach, who saw two point-afters blocked in a 32-24 loss to Hillsborough

"I had no idea how much I had. My best before that was like, 150 yards. But I have to really give it up to the O-line. They kept giving me big holes." — Richard Benjamin, Tampa Bay Tech senior, who ran for a career-best 263 yards in a 22-12 win against Chamberlain

By the numbers

3 Second-half points allowed by Jesuit in four games

5 Touchdown passes thrown by Armwood's Darryl Richardson at Leto, a school single-game record, according to offensive coordinator Evan Davis

8 Fumbles by Middleton in its 8-0 loss to Spoto, preventing the Tigers from winning consecutive games since the end of the 2010 season. They had 11 penalties.

21 Points allowed by Tampa Catholic through four games, all wins. The Crusaders had a shutout streak of 11 quarters before Bloomingdale scored in the fourth period Friday.

27 Years that former Tampa Bay Tech star Shawn Smith's state single-game rushing record (501 yards) stood. Smith reportedly was eclipsed Friday night by Yulee's Derrick Henry (502).

Record watch

1,167 Yards needed by Carrollwood Day senior Robert Davis to become Hillsborough County's all-time rushing king. Davis, who ran for 209 in Friday's 22-0 victory against Shorecrest, must average 194.5 over his final six games to break former Riverview star Avious Steadman's mark (5,320). Davis' odds increase if CDS makes the playoffs.

Three thoughts on next week

1. Since knocking off Plant 32-30 in the 2009 season opener, Tampa Bay Tech, which hosts the Panthers on Friday, hasn't scored a point in this series.

2. Unlike last season, Carrollwood Day's showdown with reigning Class 2A, District 5 champ Admiral Farragut will kick off at night, which will make all the difference for the Patriots.

3. Next week's lone in-county clash of undefeated teams: Durant at Wharton. Few local teams have looked as dominant as the Cougars, who have outscored opponents by a total of 122-7. The game will pose a study in offensive contrasts, with Durant's powerful running attack hoping to keep the ball from Wharton's Chase Litton and his fleet of receivers.
