Tuesday sports schedule



What to watch

Boys soccer

Newsome (2-0) at Plant City (1-0), 6

Unbeaten teams square off in a matchup that could determine Hillsborough County supremacy among public school squads. 

Girls basketball

Keswick Christian (0-0) at Lakewood (0-0), 7

A solid season-opening matchup with teams that both made the playoffs last season. This is a good gauge for the defending state semifinalist Crusaders, who were hit hard by graduation and have a young team facing their first test.

The Hillsborough County Football Player of the Week



LB/S Cole Highsmith, Jr., Plant City

After becoming a starter as a sophomore last season, Cole Highsmith took on a more prominent role as one of the leaders of Plant City’s defense. 

He took on that task by making play after play. 

This season, Highsmith has recorded 73 tackles and six sacks. Those totals already surpassed what he ended up with last year. 

Against Bloomingdale two weeks ago, Highsmith had 13 tackles, two sacks and an interception to lead the Raiders to victory. 

Fans paid attention. Highsmith received 50 percent of the votes (746) in the Hillsborough County football player of the week poll to beat out Wharton’s Daveon Crouch, who had 25 percent (376 votes).
