HSFB Update: Five Takeaways From Week Six

BCP October 3, 2019- Happy Friday eve folks. We’re bringing back a handful of notable performers as we roll into the football weekend. Without further ado, here are five takeaways to keep on your production radar as week seven ball commences.

Cambridge Christian- The Lancers have more wins halfway through this season (sitting real pretty at a flawless 6-0) than they did all of last year (4-8, wildcard 5-seed). Cambridge flipped the ship without a doubt, landing the 100th spot in the state and are killing national averages in most categories. After seven seasons of 6 wins or more (starting in 2011), they’re no stranger to winning ball games and this season the Lancers are posting 37 PPG.

2020 East Lake WR, Rayshaun Williams

Winter Haven- After only scoring 3 total touchdowns in their first two losses of the season, the Blue Devils have rallied a three-game win streak (blowout victories I might add); beating opponents by at least 28 points and are averaging 40 PPG. Winter haven threw their sluggish start behind them like salt over your shoulder; possessing a 3-2 record and are leading their tough, Class 7A District 6 standings of 5 teams at 1-0 in thus far, with the most points scored (143), and the least points against them with 64. Last week the Blue Devils squashed Poinciana 60-0, but this week is the start to a tougher schedule as they battle the Auburndale Bloodhounds (5-1), this Friday at home.

2021 Mitchell QB, Ezra Brennan-

2022 Manatee DB, Tyreak Allen- Less talking more action was the main item of business for Tyreak and the Hurricanes (now 2-3 on the season) this past Friday night against Lakewood Ranch. Allen and the rest of Manatee’s defense played lights out; never giving Lakewood Ranch any breathing room as they blew out the previously undefeated Mustangs (now 3-1), 58-0! The 6’ 182-pound sophomore defensive back collected 3 of the 4 interceptions that night (courtesy of his former wide receiver duties last year), earning defensive player of the game, held the Mustang’s top receiver, Michael Cucci to a mere 4 catches for 43 yards and gave a nice boost to his stat-line. Currently, according to Maxpreps, in four games played Tyreak, has tallied 18 total tackles with 4.5 TPG, (10 solo), 1 TFL, 3 INTs with one returned for six, and has 139 return yards on four kickoffs. Manatee will take on Coconut Creek with their home crowd this Friday, at 7:30 p.m.
