Whew... Lakeland 37 Tampa Bay Tech 30

I was wrong about how good TBT is or were. Lakeland played flat, messy and had a tons of penalties but survived a tough TBT team. Felt like last years Plant Game. 

Without Lampkin and Glinton, this just isn't an elite team. And, at this point, I have to assume both are done for the year. Eight (8)  personal foul penalties didn't help.

Arian Smith is afraid when the ball is in the air. He may or may not be scared of the ball itself, but he's *absolutely* scared of something or someone. Not much for blocking, either.

Have to hope Lampkin and Glinton somehow come back and can play close to full strength. Otherwise, the season ends next Friday.

I know. Early AM posts :). Lakeland is an excellent team with an exceptional talent in Bowman. Don't get me wrong. Lakeland without Bowman still beats 90% of the teams out there. But Lakeland without Bowman wouldn't have a chance against Armwood. Should be a barn burner and a great game. Good luck. I really have no rooting interest other than I want the winner of this game to win state over hated S. Florida. I guess the next team I would root for is Niceville. It's been too long since the Panhandle has had a big school champ.

What happened to Lampkin and Glinton?

It's not been announced. I've heard both would be back. Lampkin was said to be back for Tech, but wasn't. No word on Glinton. Some of the field shots from the webcast showed a couple big guys on crutches or that newish unicycle thingy. My hunch is, if they were going to be able to be back, they would've at least dressed last night. Neither did. I'm certainly not saying there is any obligation for anyone to disclose the nature or severity of the injuries. But, without those guys, Lakeland doesn't pose a substantial threat to STA and probably won't beat Armwood. Lampkin is their best OL and Glinton is their best DL, both are among the top couple of strongest players on the team, and both see spot duty on the other side of the ball. On a side note, the team also lost three other players (a Victory transfer, the 6th man of last year's OL, and a big kid from Virginia) prior to the season who figured to be in the two-deep in the trenches. So, at the moment, they are down 5 lineman from the early August two-deep. Last night, what had been projected to be an immensely deep OL and DL, was a team lacking in depth. TBT is big up front on the OL, has a big RB and goes no-huddle. NOT the team the L wanted to see with so many lineman missing.

But, if they get Lampkin and Glinton back, IMO they can still win 7A.
