PLAYERS TO WATCH:
ROCKLEDGE: QB Alex Adler, RB Justin Weaver, ATH Richard Carter, LB Aundrey Strong, DB Teodoro Rodriguez
Both teams are streaking - with Cocoa having won seven straight and Rockledge taking the last four games. Both teams are heading for the post-season and both teams want a win.
For Rockledge, a win would state the Raiders are on par with their biggest rival, which has dominated the series the last several years (Cocoa leads the series 17-16 after winning the last six).
Rockledge, like Cocoa - made a serious run in the post-season and dominated its class at the beginning of the millennium. The 'Rock' wants to reclaim that pride and swagger.
Cocoa has shown vulnerability - but has won the last seven games since starting the season 0-2. Those two losses came against two teams bound for the post-season and unbeaten. St. Joseph's Prep (Pa) - 9-0 - and University School (Fla.) at 8-0. Since then - Cocoa has dominated almost every game (except Jones and Bergen Catholic).
Rockledge will have to stop Folston and Lee and get Adler into a rhythm if they want to pull the upset.
PREDICTION: Cocoa 28 Rockledge 14
