Week 2 Top 25 games to watch
Dillard (1-0) at Chaminade-Madonna (1-0): Both teams won the Broward County Elite Showcase and are on an accelerated course for the best game in the state in Week 2.
Don Bosco Prep (New Jersey) (1-0) at Edgewater (1-0): The Eagles welcome one of the best programs in the country from New Jersey. Great test for Edgewater.
Naples (1-0) in Venice (0-1): The battle for Southwest Florida supremacy is here. The Golden Eagles have an excellent opportunity here against the Indians.
Palmetto (1-0) at Braden River (0-0): One of the best matchups in the Southwest Florida region.
Sanford Seminole (1-0) at Kissimmee Osceola (1-0): Can the Seminoles keep up their hot streak against the Kowboys’ strong defense?
Booker T. Washington (1-0) at Edison (0-0): This will be Adrian Posse’s debut for Edison at quarterback.
Carol City (1-0) at Norland (0-0): An underrated game when it comes to all the good southern football.
Killian (0-1) at Colon (1-0): The Explorers could start to sink the Cougars’ season with an 0-2 start.
Lehigh (0-1) at Bishop Verot (1-0): When it comes to offensive football, this should have a lot of yards and points. Oh, and Richard Young.
Calvary Christian Academy (1-0) at Cardinal Gibbons (1-0): Now with the big game under their belt, the Chiefs face an unsuspecting CCA group.
Palmetto Ridge (1-0) at Barron Collier (1-0): If you are heading to the Naples area, this game will not disappoint you.
Mosley (1-0) at Bahia (1-0): Mosley will be looking to maintain his winning ways against a solid Bay group.
Wellington (1-0) at Martin County (1-0): Farther north than Broward, the Tigers are playing some good football.
Plant (0-1) at Berkeley Prep (0-1): Don’t look now, but the Plant Panthers almost beat Tampa Bay Tech last week.
Mandarin (1-0) at Bolles (1-0): The Bulldogs might have the best team yet again in Jacksonville.
Vanguard (1-0) at Niceville (1-0): We know this, the Knights probably won’t score 68 points against Niceville like they did against Gainesville.
Spruce Creek (1-0) at Lake Mary (1-0): I have to like what the Hawks are doing right now.
Apopka (1-0) at West Orange (1-0): The Blue Darters had a scare in Week 1. Will deja vu ensue?
Treasure Coast (0-1) at Jesuit (1-0): If the Tigers play like they did last week, this could turn into a rout.
Cardinal Newman (1-0) at Delray Beach American Heritage (1-0): The Crusaders had a commanding 40-12 victory over Pahokee last week.
Fort Myers North (1-0) at Dunbar (1-0): The best game if you are looking for a high school game in Lee County.
East Lake (0-1) at Mitchell (1-0): The Eagles lost a heartbreaker to the Braves. Mustangs looked in sync against Gulf after the 49-0 affair.
Palm Beach Central (1-0) at Lakewood (1-0): Anthony Colandrea just threw for 305 yards against Northeast.
Gibson Lake (1-0) at Plantation American Heritage (1-0): Maybe this would have been a better matchup last season. Could be a sleeper.
Sarasota Riverview (0-1) at Buchholz (1-0): We have to imagine that the Rams will play better in Gainesville this week.
