PLAYERS TO WATCH: STRAWBERRY CREST - WR/DE Alex Carswell ; RB Chris Perez; DB Josh Engram
THE OUTLOOK For Strawberry Crest, a win gives the Chargers the district title. Not bad for first-year coach John Kelly, who came over from Armwood. Plant City has to win to keep their playoff hopes alive. An overtime loss to East Bay creates a possible three-way tie for the teams with a Plant City victory.
RB Chris Perez, JR QB Austin Carswell and WR Josh Hyde are the key weapons on offense. Carswell took over as the starter in week 4 and has helped the offense to balance (144 yards passing, 158 yards rushing per game).
Alex Carswell, who has seven D-1 offers, plays both WR/TE and defensive end and will be counted on to stop the running attack from Plant City.
Keeping Sedrick King out of the backfield will be key. King is a beast and will try to generate pressure early on the junior Carswell.
Speaking of pressure, the Chargers have 29 sacks thus far - so watch out for the exterior pressure coming from DE Alex Carswell and company.
