Who will represent Class 7A this year in the playoffs? That is a good question as some things that seem to have been known have taken a different direction.
Here are the best district games to watch in Class 7A for Week 4.
Robert E. Lee (1-1, 0-0) at Columbia (1-2, 0-0)
Skinny:There is a lot of speculation going on here with this game, but if the Tigers drop this home game to the Generals it could literally shake up the entire district race and could put Columbia in a position they rather not be in.
Oakleaf (1-1, 0-0) at Buchholz (2-0, 0-0)
Skinny:Buchholz has a lot of momentum riding from last week’s upset over Columbia and Oakleaf is looking for a way to bounce back after dropping to Ponte Vedra. This game will set the tone for the rest of the district.
Fleming Island (2-0, 0-0) at Bartram Trail (2-1, 0-0)
Skinny:Fleming Island might have been 1-1 coming into this game after Middleburg held them close last week, but Bartram Trail is a different kind of team and that is going to be the difference maker in this one.
West Port (0-1, 0-0) at Lake Howell (3-0, 0-0)
Skinny:These two programs were at the wrong end of the district standings this year and both are out to prove they don’t belong there this year. This game will help decided which one could be heading up the charts.
Sickles (1-1, 0-0) at Wiregrass Ranch (1-1, 0-0)
Skinny:Wiregrass Ranch is much improved compared to last season, while Sickle has shown some signs of struggling early. The winner in this one will have an advantage early in the district standings.
Wharton (1-1, 0-0) at Gaither (1-2, 0-0)
Skinny:Some feel Gaither could be in the playoff hunts as well as Wharton. This is another game where either team could start to make a statement and forget about the struggles and close calls of the first few weeks here.
Durant (2-1, 0-0) at East Bay (3-0, 0-0)
Skinny:Both of these teams have surprisingly gotten off to a good start for the season and both look to continue that this Week with their district opener. Expect this game to be down to the wire giving fans their monies worth.
Tampa Bay Tech (2-0, 0-0) at Bloomingdale (2-1, 0-0)
Skinny:Bloomingdale has already doubled their win total compared to last season, but Tampa Bay Tech might be a few steps ahead when it comes to being ready to contend for a playoff spot.
St. Petersburg (2-0, 0-0) at East Lake (2-0, 0-0)
Skinny:Here is a good district showdown that is going to set the tone for the rest of the district race this season. Both teams are playoff worthy and whoever wants it the most is going to come out on top here.
Palmetto (2-1, 0-0) at Sarasota (3-0, 0-0)
Skinny:Sarasota has thrown themselves into the spotlight to be in the playoff hunt this year, getting off to 3-0 start. Palmetto is also in the mix for a playoff spot and this game will help decide who is going to have a head start in the race.
Palm Beach Lakes (3-0, 0-0) at Dwyer (2-0, 0-0)
Skinny:This could be an upset alert game as Palm Beach Lakes has shown they have come to compete this year. A Dwyer win though could mean a good chance they keep control of the district for another year.
South Broward (3-0, 0-0) at McArthur (3-0, 0-0)
Skinny:The two remaining undefeated teams in the district meet this week and this could be a classic game as both teams are going to battle to make the playoffs this season from the district.
Miami Sunset (2-1, 2-0) vs. Goleman (2-1, 2-0)
Skinny:Some thought Miami Sunset was going to drop off this season, but so far have taken an early share of the district lead, but Goleman is a much improved football team this year, so this should be a fun one to watch.
