What's new: The Green Devils will rely on a heavy dose of running in their Wing-T attack. It worked last week, when St. Petersburg scored on every possession through the first three quarters against St. Petersburg Catholic. … The Green Devils lose most of their skill players, including quarterback Robert Lemon, a two-way threat who is graduating. … The defense returns nine starters and allowed just two big plays — both resulting in scores — against the Barons.
Audible: "It's been a three-year process with the program. I think the kids now have an understanding of what we're trying to do. Now it's just a matter of putting it into play." — Fabrizio
Did you know?: St. Petersburg has not won a playoff game since 1984, the year in which the Green Devils advanced to the state championship game.
