After a week one filled with upsets week two can't possibly be more surprising, or could it? Only time will tell if week two has as many fireworks as week one but there are some intriguing match-ups that will begin to answer some questions this week.
Question 1: Is Newsome for real?
The Wolves will travel to Death Valley to take on the Gaither after beating the Cowboys district rival Tampa Bay Tech last week at Tech. We know Newsome won't quit (turned the ball over four times in the first half of the Tech game), we know Newsome won't miss field goals (11 points from the kicking game), and we know the Cowboys are looking for some payback from last year's 52-7 loss.
Durant high school and the dynamic John Hendricks will travel to Citrus Park and take on Ray Ray McCloud III. These are two of the best backs in the county and they will both be on display tonight in the same arena. Durant is coming off of a lopsided loss to Armwood and are looking to get back on track. The Gryphons will look to continue a strong start to the season riding the Ray Ray train. He ran all over Robinson last Friday. The winner of this game could just be the one with the best back on it.
Question 3: Who will have South Tampa bragging rights this year?
Cliche'- Throw out the records! This is actually applicable as Robinson and Plant renew their rivalry on the turf. Both teams should be very familiar with each other since they played in the spring game. Plant is riding high after traveling to Georgia and tying a national power. Robinson is coming off a loss to Sickles. Both teams will be amplified for this contest as many of them live within earshot of each other. Black and White vs Black and Gold should be good. The Knights will look to make a statement and the Panthers will look to state dominance in the area. Both need their first win.
Question 4: Who will be the most dynamic QB in the county?
Hillsborough will open up their season against district foe Jefferson. This is the game of the week. A game that will pit two of the best guys behind center in Hillsborough county. Deiondre Porter, the Dragon's senior leader will kill you with his arm but his feet may take Jefferson to a state title. Hillsborough's quarterback Dwayne Lawson that thinks he is on that same level and he will have a chance to prove it on the gridiron tonight. The scoreboard should be lighting up regularly tonight as both defenses try to figure out how to deal with both of these quarterbacks. Porter and Lawson are both vying to be the best in the county. This is a must see tonight if you are in the area.
