Prime time teams

Gaither (2-0): The Cowboys, who took over the top spot in the Prime Time 15 for Hillsborough County, faced its toughest test of the season against Tampa Bay Tech. It turned out to be no contest. Gaither won 34-14 to remain undefeated.

Sumner (2-0): Starting a program from scratch was not the easiest thing to do for the Stingrays, who had no spring football and only two months of summer conditioning to put together a team because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. No matter. Sumner battled through the adversity and has made some by winning their first two games in their inaugural season. 

Seminole (2-0): The Warhawks are 2-0 for the first time since 2002 after knocking off Northeast 28-6. Defense has been the key to Seminole’s fast start. In two games, the Warhawks have allowed a combined 12 points. 

Lakewood (2-0): The Spartans proved they are the top team in Pinellas County by dismantling Boca Ciega 40-6. Scoring came in all facets with Lakewood getting touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams. 

Wharton (2-0): It was not pretty but the Wildcats found a way to pull through by blocking a punt for a touchdown to beat Palm Harbor University 7-3 and remain undefeated in coach Mike Williams’ first season with the program.

Jesuit (3-0): Throughout Matt Thompson’s tenure, the Tigers became a state title contender by relying on a smothering defense. Now, it’s the offense making most of the headlines. Jesuit has scored a combined 109 points during its perfect start — 46 coming in a shutout over Bradenton Bayshore on Thursday. 

Armwood (1-1): The Hawks bounced back from last week’s heartbreaking loss to Bloomingdale by routing rival Plant 45-7 to get back to .500. 

Prime time performers

RB Deon Silas, Sr., Steinbrenner: The Iowa State commit ran for five touchdowns to help the Warriors get back on track with a 56-7 win over Alonso. 

DB Aumhryaun Brown, Sr., Lakewood: The enforcer in the Spartans secondary finished with tackles, picked off a pass and recovered a fumble in the win over Boca Ciega. 

QB Kiael Kelly, Sr., Gaither: The Ball State commit threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in the Cowboys win over Tampa Bay Tech.

WR/DB Jamal Jones, Sr., Armwood: The versatile playmaker had two touchdown receptions, scored on a punt return and picked off a pass in the win over Plant.  

LB Trey Trimble, Sr., Seminole: In the third quarter, he scooped up a fumble and returned it for a touchdown to put the exclamation point in a blowout over Dunedin. 

QB Joe Pesansky, Sr., Jesuit: This becoming a common occurrence. The transfer from Virginia threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in a win over Sarasota Booker. It should be noted that backup Luke Knight also accounted for three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing).

FNF Campus Tour Preview: Pinellas Park at PHU



Pinellas Park (6-1) at Palm Harbor University (3-4), 7

Three things to know

Pound the rock

Both teams have strong rushing attacks. Palm Harbor University’s ground game is led by Luke Yoder, whose father is former Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Todd Yoder. The younger Yoder currently leads the Tampa Bay area and ranks fourth overall in the state with 1,271 yards so far this season. Pinellas Park is more diversified in its approach. Isaiah Hampton (780 yards) and Terrion Williams (652 yards) are the Patriots’ top two leading rushers. 

Trap game

Pinellas Park is tied with Northeast for second place in Class 6A, District 11 and needs a win against Boca Ciega on Oct. 29 to force a three-way tie at the top of the standings. Before the Patriots can worry about playoff implications, they have to focus on Palm Harbor University. After starting 1-3, the Hurricanes have lost three straight and dropped out of contention for the 8A, District 11 title. That relegated Palm Harbor University to playing the role of spoiler the remainder of the season. 

Check out the FNF Campus Tour

The Friday Night Football Campus Tour, presented by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is a free, interactive event that includes games and prizes for all fans, including the opportunity to get Tampa Bay Buccaneers swag. A 15-foot-tall replica of the NFL’s Super Bowl trophy is on display at each stop.. Buccaneers cheerleaders and Captain Fear, the Bucs’ mascot, also will be in attendance.
