Shorecrest: Spring football capsule

Around the county in 30 days

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


Coach: Phil Hayford (178-105, 30th season)

Last season: 6-4

Key losses: LB Zach Hirsch, QB/DB Michael Rightmyer, OL/LB Jay Rosenbluth, WR/DB Logan Sembler, RB Robby Thigpen, OL/DL Matt Van Law, OL/LB Dan Whitecage

Who's back: RB/DB Toms Bernhards, WR/DB Evan Jerome, OL/DL Stephen Mandula, RB/DB Jack Schroeder, RB/LB Harrison Settle, TE/LB Tyler Shenkman, QB/LB Hunter Tremaine

What's new: The Chargers, who used the wing-T for years, switched to a spread offense. But they will still rely on the running game, especially with the return of Tremaine and Schroeder, who each had more than 1,000 yards last year. … Jerome is a two-way starter who led in receptions and interceptions last season. … The defense held Bradenton Christian to 6-of-28 passing and 40 rushing yards in the spring game.

Audible: "The biggest thing I was pleased with was the work the kids put in this spring. I told them if you crack enough eggs, you're going to get an omelette." — Hayford

Did you know?: Dave Field is retiring from coaching after 28 years as an assistant at the school. He will continue to teach at Shorecrest and plans to announce the games.

Spring result: Beat Bradenton Christian 28-0

  2. Rowdies defender gets the call to represent Jamaica


    ST. PETERSBURG —- Damion Lowe has loved his first season with the Rowdies but has some other soccer-related business that might pull him away for a bit.

    Family business, too.

    Tampa Bay Rowdies defender Damion Lowe collides with Louisville City FC forward Luke Spencer earlier this year.
  3. Sarasota's Scooter Gennett: Utility man turned historic slugger

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — On June 10, 2009, the Brewers selected a Sarasota High School shortstop in the 16th round of the MLB draft. He'd assembled an impressive resume in prep ball, but as one of more than 1,500 players drafted that year, he had a tough road to the big leagues.

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett (4) of Sarasota makes the throw to first as Rays DH Trevor Plouffe (14) grounds into a double play at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Monday, June 19, 2017. For Gennett, the three-game series this week with the Rays was his first trip back to Tampa Bay since his historic four-home run game June 6, 2017 against St. Louis. DIRK SHADD   |   Times
