PLAYERS TO WATCH:
LAKE BRANTLEY - LB Chris De La Rosa ; DE Noah Oliver; QB Jaerd Bernhardt
THE OUTLOOK -- Apopka is coming into the game with Chandler Cox and Smith at QB in place of injured Zack Darlington (concussion). The Blue Darters went to the single wing later in the game against Oak Ridge - and ran 72 - yes 72 plays last week.
Injuries have taken a toll on the 'Darters, with Daquon Isom and Smith both nursing nagging injuries.
For Lake Brantley, the triple-option is the bread and butter for coach George Clayton. The only thing is, Clayton will not be there. The long-time head coach had back surgery recently and will be out for a while.
Lake Brantley is missing RB Deondre Fair from last year (transferred out) and has a young offensive line, but Maurice Thomas had 178 all-purpose yards last week for the Patriots, Bernhardt scored and two touchdowns. Lake Brantley is strong up front defensively, which will pose a challenge for the revamped Darter offense.
