Prime time teams

Clearwater: After falling to 1-3, the Tornadoes were in desperate need of a win to boost confidence. They got that against Pinellas Park thanks in large part to their defense. 

East Lake: The Eagles showed their resolve, bouncing back from a shutout loss to Mitchell by rallying to beat River Ridge. 

Fivay: Led by an opportunistic defense, the Falcons beat previously undefeated Wesley Chapel 14-7 to snap a four-game losing streak in the series. 

Mitchell: In a battle between the top teams in Pasco County, the Mustangs showed off their dominance in a resounding win over Wiregrass Ranch. 

Nature Coast: The Sharks averaged a loss to rival Hernando by getting off to a fast start then holding on for the win in a matchup of unbeatens. 

Plant City: Down 12 with three minutes remaining, the Raiders rallied to stun Tampa Bay Tech. The winning score came on a touchdown run by quarterback Nick Felice with no time remaining. 

Weeki Wachee: The Hornets have never had a winning season. That might change, especially after they beat Springstead for the first time in school history. 

Zephyrhills: It has been a rough start for the Bulldogs, who were idle the first two weeks of the season before losing two straight. Zephyrhills overcame those struggles to beat Cypress Creek for its first win of the season. 

Prime time performers

LB Jaeden Atkins, Jr., Calvary Christian: Played a key role in a dominating defensive effort by returning an interception for a touchdown in the win over Miami Dade Christian. 

RB Jason Albritton, Jr., Newsome: The hard-nosed runner had 91 yards on the ground and scored twice in a win over Lennard. 

WR Maguire Anderson, Sr., Mitchell: The top return specialist in Pasco County, who already had two punt returns for touchdowns entering Friday, took the opening kickoff back for a score to set the tone in a win over Wiregrass Ranch. 

WR Reagan Ealy, Sr., Plant City: The dependable target had a career night with 12 receptions for 220 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Tampa Bay Tech 

QB Nick Felice, Sr., Plant City: Went 30-of-38 for 423 yards and five touchdowns and scored the game-winner on a short run with no time remaining to complete a wild comeback against Tampa Bay Tech.

LB/DB Demetrius Garland, Sr., Clearwater: Led a stellar defensive performance by returning an interception for a touchdown in a win over Pinellas Park.

WR Agiye Hall, Sr., Bloomingdale: The Alabama commit had touchdown catches that went for 69 and 82 yards in the first quarter that helped the Bulls build a comfortable lead in a win over Durant. 

ATH Kinyatah Morgan, Sr., Nature Coast: Known more as a defensive standout, Morgan showed he can score in a variety of ways by taking a kickoff back for a touchdown and scoring on a reverse in a win over Hernando. 

DL Jeremiah Ross, Sr., Newsome: Coming off the edge, Ross caused havoc, finishing with three sacks against Lennard. 

ATH Junior Vandeross, Jr., Jesuit: The electrifying playmaker had two touchdown receptions and returned a punt for another score in the win over CCC.

Sydney Stout reaches 100 touchdown passes — this season

Published

on

Robinson quarterback Sydney Stout reached an impressive milestone with her 100th touchdown pass on Monday.   

That is not a career mark.

Stout reached that total this season.

The senior already had shattered the flag football single-season state record of 79 touchdown passes and entered the Class 2A region final needing just three touchdowns to hit triple digits. 

No problem. 

Stout threw four touchdown passes — in the first half. 

She added another in the second half to give her 102, a number that will continue to grow. 

After all, the Knights beat Lecanto 34-0 in the region final. Robinson, which has won state titles in five of the past six seasons (the 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic), advances to the state semifinals on Friday. Stout could end up playing in two more games if the Knights keep their state title streak intact. 

And there’s a good chance of that happening considering Robinson has outscored foes by a combined 816-50 this year.
