Bay area’s elite, Plant vs. Armwood, reunite (St. Petersburg Times)

(6 days ago) Every year when the time for scheduling a preseason game approaches, Plant High football coach Robert Weiner calls around the state looking for the best opponent for his four-time state champion Panthers. Last year, it was Godby, the Tallahassee tank of a team that handed Plant a 19-point loss. In 2011, the Panthers took on Miami Columbus, an eventual Class 8A state semifinalist. But while at an February event for high school coaches at USF with Armwood coach Sean Callahan, Weiner suddenly realized he didn't have to search far and wide this time for the best matchup in Florida. "I said to Sean, 'We could call anywhere we want, and we're not going to find a better opponent than each other,'  " Weiner recalled. So the veteran coaches ran it by their athletic directors and made it official: the game that means nothing to overall records but everything to ...

Lakewood QB Ryan Davis ready for final shot at Countryside (St. Petersburg Times)

(Yesterday) While Lakewood and Countryside are not natural rivals, don't tell that to Spartans quarterback Ryan Davis. Friday night will mark the fourth time Davis has faced the Cougars since his freshman year at Northeast. Davis -- a four- star recruit with offers from the likes of Florida, Miami and Florida State, among many, many others -- took time this week to reminisce about the previous games and look ahead to his final matchup with the Cougars: **2011-12** As a freshman, Davis was injured and did not play in a 37-6 loss. As a sophomore, Countryside ended Northeast's five-game win streak with an emphatic 49-0 blowout (the game was later ruled a forfeit because the Cougars played an ineligible player). Davis had 28 yards passing and 1 yard rushing. "We took a beating," he said. "I remember in my freshman year we played Bogie and got beat pretty badly (48-3). But other ...

Class 8A, District 6: 2014 district preview (St. Petersburg Times)

(7 days ago) We wrap up our daily district previews for all 78 varsity football teams with one of Hillsborough County's most competitive leagues. **Overview** This is one of Tampa Bay's best districts, with just about every team in it a playoff contender. Plant hasn't lost a district game in ages, and Wharton was the runnerup the past two seasons. Among the contenders, only Wharton is retooling, with everyone else returning key players at key positions, but especially at quarterback where Spencer Preston (Newsome), Isaiah McIntyre (Bloomingdale) and Chris Oladokun (Alonso) are returning starters, and Plant's new starter, Rex Culpepper, has been in the system for two years and already has college offers from Florida, Miami and Ohio State, to name a few. Even Riverview, which isn't expected to contend, has experience at quarterback with Keisean Young. If Plant is the team to win the district as many ...
