GAME 3 - INTRACOASTAL RIVALARY

The Skinny: Fletcher (1-1) is coming off a loss to a First Coast team that struggled to move the ball in their opener against American Heritage. They will host a Sandalwood team (2-0) that has outscored its opponents 77-21 in its first two games. The Senators won last year's meeting 23-21 - and have won the last three. Sandalwood hasn't won since 2009, a 14-13 win.

vs
SANDALWOOD
FLETCHER
Prediction: SANDALWOOD
PLAYERS TO WATCH:

SANDALWOOD: LB Kain Daub, DE Blake McClain, WR DeSean Blair

FLETCHER: QB Luke Medlock; RB Jacob Kraut; DB -Malik Reaves; RB Matt Henderson

THE OUTLOOK:

Before any players come to mind, the point differential shows that the Saints are off to a similar start to their 2012 season.

After starting out 2-0 with a point differential of +66, they played in five games that were decided by a touchdown or less and lost three of them.

Though Jacob Kraut has done a good job in replacing Jamari Smith, Sandalwood brings a talented box. Kraut (Rutgers commit) will have to get past Rivals250 member LB Kain Daub and Rivals three-star DE Blake McClain - both committed to Florida State Fletcher Two-star QB Luke Medlock will be one of the key players to watch in this game. The Florida International commit will need to get off to a strong start and establish the passing game to give Kraut possible running lanes. Medlock will have to find time to get the ball to WR Kalif Jackson

This game will also test the Senators' offensive line. At 5'11, 240 lbs., Kraut will also need his blockers to contain the Saints' strong front seven. Running backs that big generally don't go to ends to set up big plays

The Saints have lost the last three times they've faced Fletcher - and that has been a sticking point for Saints fans in this heated rivalry.

Fletcher's defense caged the First Coast offense last week, but took a beating. They'll need another big game from the 'D' to win this one. Watch out for Saints WR DeSean Blair (headed to Louisville.
