PLAYERS TO WATCH:
FORT MEADE - QB Jay Smith, RB Ryan Fulse; LB Hewitt Grant
OUTLOOK: : The Miners have won three games with the defense Fort Meade is known for. Strong against the run and shutdown against the pass.
For Tampa Catholic, QB Kyle Ploucher cannot make the mistakes he made against Madison County (a 30-15 loss), missing a few open passes and throwing costly interceptions.
The big battle will be - can the Crusader defense, led by LB's T.J. Harrell and Tre Watson - shut down the Miner offense, led by Jay Smith (quarterback) and returning RB Ryan Fulse.
Catholic has played a slightly tougher schedule and that could come into play. If the Crusaders can get up early on Fort Meade and force Smith to beat them with his arm, it may be a long night for the Miners.
