It's hard to imagine a tougher district on the North Suncoast than Class 6A-6. Over the past five years, four of the five schools have made the playoffs. Only Land O'Lakes has missed out, although the Gators went 8-2 in 2013 to finish third. Sunlake has made the postseason two straight years and four of the past five. Pasco had its streak of eight straight playoff appearances halted last season. Mitchell advanced last season, and Springstead was a playoff team in 2012-13. "There are no breathers at all on your district schedule," Sunlake coach Bill Browning said. "We don't have any breathers at all on our schedule, period, this year."If last season is any indication, this district could again go down to the final week. Springstead, Sunlake and Mitchell all went 3-1 in the district a year ago. That required a Monday tiebreaker. Mitchell beat Springstead to set up a quarter against Sunlake. The Seahawks then beat Mitchell 15-0 to earn the school's first district title. The only unknown is Pasco. The Pirates have been a playoff team for most of the past 10 years no matter what district they've been in. Pasco was 6-4 last season, its worst record since 2007. But how will it fare against relatively new competition?"It's definitely different from last year's district," Pasco senior TE/DL Nick Bryant said. "We play two schools that we haven't played recently (Springstead and Mitchell). I think this new district has a lot of talent and competition. Our non-district games are very tough and that will prepare us for the district games."If there is an underdog in this district it's Land O'Lakes. The Gators lost most of their offense to graduation, including starting quarterback James Pensyl (almost 2,000 passing yards in 2014). Having a young team in this district is not an ideal situation."This district is very tough," Gators coach Brian Wachtel said. "You have to bring your 'A' game every week. There is talent in this district from top to bottom.'' Staff writers Bob Putnam and Kelly Parsons contributed to this report.
