Game choice this week

Recommended Posts

I am a HS football nut. Has not mattered where we live, I simply follow and root for the home team. 5 months ago we moved to Venice from Arizona. I went to Miami for the KOC against Northwestern last week. I really don't know too much about the lay of the land here as of yet.

That said, Venice is off this week. I have a serious need to be at a game. Any suggestions on a game I should go to this week? I would rather keep the drive to an hour or less if I can.

Best game of the week in Florida will be battle of the Saints as in St. Thomas vs St. Frances in Ft. Lauderdale. I believe it is being played at Brian Piccolo stadium.

If an hour or less is the cutoff, then you may want to go watch Charlotte, Manatee or one of the teams from Fort Myers play. If you are more flexible on distance, then see @Cat_Scratchsuggestion. Another flexible suggestion would be to come to the Orlando area and watch Sarasota Riverview (from your neck of the woods) take on the defending 8A State champion, Sanford Seminole. This game could be an attractive one. However, the drive would be a bit more than 2 hours.

If it has to be in the area then you have Riverdale vs Ft Myers, Charlotte vs Island Coast and Baron Collier vs Sarasota 

Thats a really weak area for football. It’s Venice, Palmetto, and Manatee and that’s it. 
 

Lee County has never won a football title. Sarasota only has 2 total. So you definitely can’t be picky when looking for a game

Good game is Gulliver Prep @ Bradenton Manatee.

Hello Mike E, welcome to this message board. What part of Arizona did you reside in, and which teams/schools did you attend games of mostly? Also, did you notice anything about the officiating in Arizona High School Football? Thank you. and we look forward to your point-of-view.

Thanks all for the feedback!  I think I will end up at Manatee v Gulliver Prep.  I saw Manatee in the spring game and they had an absolute bowling ball at running back. Gulliver is ranked top 100 by Maxpreps.  Should be entertaining.

I seem to recall that Sanford is hosting Sarasota Riverview.   Had it been the other way around, that's the game I would have recommended (because the drive would be an hour less). 

Since he's living in Venice, it would have been a good chance to scout a potential State Title opponent.
