The Skinny: Joe Pinkos' picks basically has this game as a toss up. After contemplating the outcome for quite some time, I've come to believe that East Lake can pull this one off. They'll be at home and playing for the chance to win a state title for Pinellas County. Artavis Scott will be difference maker in the return game and as a running back.

Prediction: EAST LAKE**


DWYER - WRJohnnie Dixon; DB Shawn Boone; WR Ezra Saffold; RBAlonzo Smith

EAST LAKE - WR Artavis Scott; WR George Campbell; OT Mason Cole; DB Devin Abraham

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.
