PLAYERS TO WATCH:
THE OUTLOOK -- On paper, these teams looks extremely similar.
East Lake has scored 579 points and allowed 83 points this year in their 13-0 season. Dwyer has scored 557 points and allowed 103 points in their 13-0 season.
Dwyer has played one close game this year, beating St. Thomas Aquinas in the last round of the 7A state playoffs. It's the same story for the Eagles - East Lake's closest win was against Palmetto, beating them 13-12 in the first round of the state playoffs.
Both schools have a top flight receiver. East Lake WR Artavis Scott is a Clemson commit that checks in at #68 in the Rivals100. Dwyer WR Johnnie Dixon is ranked as the 109th best player in the country.
To go along with Scott, East Lake has a 2014 four-star in Mason Cole and a 2015 four-star in George Campbell. The Eagles will definitely face their toughest test of the season after going through a relatively easy schedule.
The game will rest on the arm of East Lake quarterback Jake Hudson. If he can get the ball out to his two four-star receivers down the field, it should be tough-sledding for the Dwyer defense.
