PLAYERS TO WATCH:
QB Clinton Moxam; LB Dedric Witherspoon; DE Dejuan Alexander; LB Auston Wolfe
THE OUTLOOK - The game everyone on the Space Coast has been waiting for - ok, so maybe not everyone.
This is a chance for Heritage to prove to everyone they are the legitimate power in Brevard County. Some are calling the Panthers the 'Cocoa' of the decade. Last year's 10-2 season with two losses to Palm Bay 'only the beginning'.
For Bayside, a rebound from back-to-back disappointing 4-6 seasons after going to the regional finals in 5A (now 7A) before a three point loss to Manatee in 2010. QB Lucious McKay will guide the Bears, who look to make a quick strike on the Panther defense that has given up all of 39 points this year - 22 to Palm Bay. Aside from the Melbourne game, Bayside's offense has been a scoring machine.
So has Heritage - averaging 40 points per game and having only one game decided by less than 28 points (Palm Bay). That means Rivals three-star LB Greg Miclisse will have his hands full for the Bears, trying to stop QB Clint Moxam from picking apart the Bayside secondary.
While everyone's talking offense - it's likely the defenses that will decide this game - and Heritage has a great one.
