Prime time teams

Berkeley Prep: The defense came through with a goal-line stand in the final minutes to preserve a much-needed 19-14 victory over previously undefeated Tampa Catholic. 

Clearwater Central Catholic: The Marauders have a knack for winning games with some last second panache. Anthony Colandrea hit Jarquez Green for the go-ahead touchdown with eight seconds remaining  to beat rival Clearwater 14-10. That win came two weeks after CCC scored in the final minute to knock off Wiregrass Ranch.  

Hillsborough: After being idle for two weeks and losing to Armwood in its opener, the Terriers showed their resolve by rallying to beat Jefferson 17-13 for their first win of the season. 

Bloomingdale: The Bulls, who scored a combined 39 points in their first wins of the season, nearly matched that total Friday night in a 37-20 win over Plant City to remain unbeaten. 

Mitchell: The Mustangs allowed just 85 yards of offense in shutting out East Lake 35-0. In three games, Mitchell has given up a combined 15 points. 

Prime time performers

RB Joey Sipp, Jr., Hillsborough: Scored two rushing touchdowns, the last coming midway through the fourth quarter that put the Terriers ahead for good against Jefferson.  

QB Tre Simmons, Sr., Bloomingdale: The dual-threat quarterback had his best game of the season, throwing for 236 yards and three touchdowns and adding 73 yards and two more scores on the ground in the win over Plant City.  

RB Xavier Townsend, Jr., Berkeley Prep: The Buccaneers’ biggest playmaker scored twice on two short runs to help his team beat rival Tampa Catholic. 

WR/DB Jarquez Green, Sr., Clearwater Central Catholic: Accounted for both Marauders’ touchdowns, including a 13-yard touchdown catch for the winning score against Clearwater.  

RB Joquez Smith, So., Jesuit: The dependable runner got off to a strong start with two touchdowns in the first quarter that gave the Tigers a lead they never relinquished against Chamberlain. 

What a catch!

Friday’s Bloomingdale-Plant City game was a matchup between two of the nation’s top receivers. The Bulls’ Agiye Hall, an Alabama commit, is a four-star recruit who is ranked as one of the nation’s top receivers in the 2021 class. The Raiders’ Mario Williams, an Oklahoma commit, is another four-star prospect and is listed as the top receiver in the 2021 class according to ESPN. 

Both lived up to the hype. 

They each had a pair of touchdown caches, along with some of other highlight-worthy grabs. 

Okay, that was on offense.

What about defense? 

The two made plays on that side of the ball, too.

Hall knocked down a pass intended for Williams. 

Williams picked off a pass. 

But Hall had the better result. His team won 37-20. 

Unbeaten, untied, unbelievable

There are still plenty of undefeated teams left in the area. Some were expected to be in that position. Others have opened some eyes with their perfect start. Here are three of the biggest turnarounds this season. 

Robinson (4-0): The Knights have already surpassed their win total from last season thanks to an offense that is averaging 37 points per game. Their win streak will be put to the test against undefeated Jesuit on Oct. 15.  

Wesley Chapel (3-0): The momentum for this strong start began last season when the Wildcats won four of their last games. They have a good shot to still be undefeated when they face River Ridge on Oct. 11.

Wharton (3-0): Under new coach Mike Williams, the Wildcats are off to their first 3-0 start since 2015. The success is due largely to a defense that has allowed just three points in the first three games.

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.
