East Lake and Bradenton Manatee, two of the premier football programs in the bay area, have agreed to play in the preseason the next two years.

In August, the Eagles will travel to play the Hurricanes in a game scheduled to be broadcast on Bright House Sports Network. East Lake will play at home the following year.

This year’s game will have plenty of star power with Division I recruits such as East Lake lineman Mason Cole and receiver Artavis Scott and Manatee defensive tackle DeMarcus Christmas.
