Jacksonville, Florida. It is the ninth week of high school football season and the playoff matches are approaching. Here’s a look at five of the best games in town on Friday night and the full schedule of games. All matches Friday at 7 pm unless mentioned.
Five for Friday
Parker (2-4) in West Side (3-3), 6:00 pm: This game clinched the district championships a year ago as both teams marched through the state qualifiers. Parker won that showdown in an action thriller. No tiebreakers are at stake this season, but these are still a big game. The Brave needs to find some consistency. They were a little all over the place. Brave in defense, with CB Damani Dent (42 pieces of ball, 2 wits, LB Matthew Davis (36 pieces per ball, in French) and S. Chris Victor (2 tackles, 9 bags, 2 FR) are among the best players on this side of the ball. RB Quente Payments (360 yards, 4 TDs) and Dent are the best offensive players. The brave must slow QB DJ Otis, Who can fold it and go (273 fast yards, 3 TDs) and spread it (854 passing yards, 5 TDs). DL Chadwick Martin An on-line machine for Wolverines (44 tackles, 12 TFL, 10 sachets). Their defensive front causes problems with DE / LB Dominic Alexander (55 assists, 8 TFL balls) and DL Jordan Hall (26 intrusions, 9 TFL) constantly in the background.
Ponte Fedra (5-2) in Saint Augustine (4-2): The Sharks didn’t beat the yellow jackets until 2018. They’ve won twice in a row since (21-14 and 38-35), but Ponte Vedra has struggled since losing QB Jacoby Myers For a season-ending injury in the Week 7 match to the Partram Trail. Coach Jeff Desandro He resigned for personal reasons the following week. The road did not slow down after that, with a match against Creek Side next week. RB Campbell Parker (812 accelerating yards, 8 TDs) approaching 1,000-yard dash season for Sharks. The Yellow Jackets team has won three times in a row since losing to the No. 1 Partram Trail on September 25. QB Sami Edwards (998 passing yards, 9 TDs) and RB Tay Baxter (655 accelerating yards, 11 TDs) were at the epicenter of Saint Augustine’s attack.
Sandalwood (5-1) in Bartram Trail (6-1): Saints were riding high until last week’s setback against Mandarin. This does not reduce the amount of work. QB Chris Calhoun (1411 yards, 12 total TDs) was an excellent double threat player. But defense is where sandalwood’s strength lies. pound Jennings burn (52 pieces of paper, 6 bags), CB Jadon Kennedy (6 smarts), lbs Langston Hardy (32 pieces, 3 bags) and DL players Syphon Blount And the Diane McCray (7 bags per piece) Very strong defensive unit title. Can they slow down the bears? Among the local teams, only Mandarin managed to hold Partram by less than 30 points. Bears have a lot of weapons, from a pair of QBs (Santino Marucci, Brody Davis), For multipurpose players (Eric Weatherly, AG Jones III) To the Upward Pass Pickup (TE Elle Sutherland). Bartram also has one of the best kickers in the country David Kemp, Who has 52 and 54 yard field goals this season. s Mika Pollard It is fourth in the region in 10 bags.
Reigns (3-3) at Trinity Christian (5-1), 7:30 pm: Expect a defensive war here. The Vikings won successive matches and began their defense with a six-intercept knockout in the afternoon at Northwest Classic. Reigns did not play poor defense throughout the season against district teams, and he did not drop more than 20 points in a match against teams from Northeast Florida. QB Carlton Butler Jr. And RB Cream Burke Are the main headlines in Reigns attack. DB Keri Hammond He had a 3-INT vs Ribault. Renes collides with Trinity, who is riding a poor defensive line, too. The conquerors were doing enough offensive to win matches. But with a defense like this, they didn’t need much. Trinity punishes opponents, limiting teams to 171.3 yards per game. pound Lucius Latimore (48 pcs.), LB Caden Morel (35 treatments), dB Jahron Williams (30 treatments) and DE Jonathan Goddard (29 tackles, 11.5 TFL, 5.5 bags) lead the relentless Trinity team.
Ridgeview (6-1) in Clay (6-0): Talk about the redemption season for both schools. These were teams 1 through 9 last year. Clay’s only victory came against Ridgeview in 2019. This season, the Blue Devils have smashed every team in their path, with their closest match winning 21 points over Christian University in Week 2. QB Three laughs He completed nearly 70% of his passes (903 yards, 13 TDs) and pushed 544 yards. RB Al’querious Ray He was nearly unstoppable (fast 1,222 yards, 15 TDs, 11.5 yards), ground game leader chewing an average of 11.3 yards per touch. DE Valdez Seymour He has the best six bags and a DB Jonathan Morning Leads in both interventions (55) and shovels (3). Clay has only two turns this season. On the other side of the field, the Ridgeview optimization was equally impressive. RB Eddie Whipple He is the blast of the Panther player most. It is also QB’s top goal Max Monroe (1012 passing yards, 11 TD). Whipple has six TDs. In defense, left-back LB Joe Reed (62 treated) and DL Derek Mosley (59 interventions) lead the way.
