Pinellas: Sunday morning quarterback

There have been some nice surprises early in the season, but things got back to normal this past weekend. St. Petersburg's ground game continues to run people ragged. Countryside's offensive line can still push people around. And Palm Harbor University, East Lake and Largo all have young, mobile leaders in college. The Week 3 recap:

Super seven

1. St. Petersburg (3-0)

The Green Devils score more than 30 points for the third straight week. Latest victim: Dixie Hollins, 34-0.

2. Countryside (3-0)

After squeaking by the first two weeks, the Cougars get a decisive 48-21 victory over Osceola.

3. Palm Harbor University (3-0)

Though they struggled against Seminole, the Hurricanes keep their best-ever start going with a 33-22 victory.

4. East Lake (2-1)

With a nice mix of the run and pass, the Eagles have the balance to contend for a district title.

5. Largo (2-1)

If the Packers can find a way to hold on to the ball they'll be awfully tough to stop.

6. Lakewood (2-1)

The Spartans defense has been the catalyst, but there could a be a big setback if DE Dante Fowler has to serve three-game suspension.

7. CC Catholic (3-0)

The Marauders finally get their offense in gear in a 42-28 win over Mitchell.

Knocking on the door: Clearwater (3-0), Pinellas Park (2-1), Admiral Farragut (3-0)

Offensive player of the week

RB Justin Goodloe, CC Catholic: After struggling on offense the first two weeks, the Marauders score 42 against Mitchell. Goodloe played a big role, rushing for 129 yards, catching five passes for 85 yards and scoring four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) and taking in a two-point conversion.

Defensive player of the week

LB Robert Goddard, Admiral Farragut: Normally a star on offense, Goddard made his biggest impact on defense, picking off two passes and recovering a fumble in a 42-0 win over Northside Christian. His fumble recovery in the fourth quarter helped preserve the shutout, the Blue Jackets' first in this series since 2005.


Justus Mullin is the kicker for Clearwater. His last name was misspelled in Friday's editions.

    Keep him.

    Jonathan Drouin is live bait. The Lightning is ready to run the hook through him and cast him out there again. Drouin has enough talent for the Lightning to meet some defensive needs in a deal.
