For some teams Week 2 means the start of district play, and for pretty much every squad in the area, tonight's games promise to be ultra-competitive. All games are scheduled for a 7:30 p.m kickoff.
Ray Ray is off and running.
Sickles running back Ray Ray McCloud III torched Robinson last week for 174 yards rushing and two touchdowns as the Gryphons opened the year with a 33-7 victory. McCloud, who surpassed 4,000 career rushing yards in last week's win, is 1,744 yards from the county's all-time mark, set by …
Player of the week
Dillon O'Toole, River Ridge
Since getting hired at his alma mater in 2011, River Ridge coach Ryan Benjamin has spent a lot of time thinking about beating Land O'Lakes. He even bought a trophy — a gator mouth embedded on a black marble plaque — to give to the game …
ST. PETERSBURG — If Countryside was to have any chance against highly regarded Lakewood Friday night, somebody had to emerge as a playmaker.
Dante Satcher was that player.
Berkeley Prep 44, Middleton 6: The Berkeley Prep special teams swarmed Middleton to set up a number of short scores, and quarterback Brad Mayes threw four TD. The Tigers, under new coach Jeff George, fumbled on the first play and Buc running back Gordon Stetson carried it in for an 8-yard TD on the next play to …
PLANT CITY— After lightning delayed Plant City and Steinbrenner's game at the start of the second half, officials and administrators of both schools decided to void the game. It won't be made up.
ST. PETERSBURG — If there were any doubts about Austyn Causey's readiness to lead St. Petersburg High School, he answered them in a big way Friday night against Gibbs.
VALDOSTA , GA. — Known for its usually prolific offenses, Plant struggled to move the ball early in its season opener against Lowndes.
SEMINOLE — Ryan Allan scored two touchdowns and Wilan Harvey provided a bruising presence in Osceola's ground game in a 15-6 victory over county rival Seminole at Osceola High School on Friday.
CLEARWATER — Clearwater Central Catholic used an efficient offense and a bend-but-don't-break defense to defeat nonconference opponent Naples Lely. The Marauders were in control the entire night, going up 14-0 before lightning delayed the game in the middle of the second quarter. Sophomore C.J. Cotman scored on a …
LARGO — Led by senior quarterback Donovan Hale, Largo rolled at home. Hale impressed from the start, gaining 169 yards in directing the Packers' attack. John Clark had 136 yards rushing and two touchdowns and Dakarai Allen lead the team with 84 receiving yards and snagged two touchdowns. Largo outgained the …
DADE CITY — Sunlake's formula on offense is to run the ball, shove people around and play with the finesse of a smokestack.
LITHA — Coaches tell their teams to play to the last whistle and that's just what Tampa Bay Tech did. The Titans rallied in the final 1:40 behind the 1-2 punch of Clemson Tiger commit Deon Cain and junior Marchalo Judge.
GIBSONTON — Lennard matched its win total for the past two seasons and defeated its neighborhood rival in convincing fashion before a packed house. The Longhorns scored on their first three possessions to take a 21-0 lead and never looked back. Their defense forced five turnovers and recorded three sacks.
TAMPA — Seffner Christian Academy dominated thanks to four interceptions and two fumble recoveries in the season opener for both teams. Seffner Christian running back/linebacker Karmi Mackey seemed to be all over the ball, scoring four of the team's six touchdowns.
TAMPA — Last season was the most successful in Sickles history, the Gryphons winning a district title and their first-ever playoff games en route to the region finals.
TAMPA — Both defenses were stout in the early going. By Jefferson's fourth possession, its bigger, more physical offensive line began to open holes for backs Corey Walker and Mondreas Lofton. That opened up the passing game for quarterback Cade Weldon, who scorched Alonso for three touchdowns. Alonso and …
