Manatee Stays Perfect, Beats Another Out-of-Town Foe

The Manatee Hurricanes love facing teams from outside the Tampa Bay area. Manatee is off to a 3-0 start to the season after beating three straight out-of-town opponents.

Junior quarterback Josh Meyer bounced back from two first quarter interceptions to rush for two scores and throw for another in Manatee's 23-13 win over Friendship Academy (Washington D.C.) Friday night. Manatee opened the season with wins over Gilman (Maryland) and Venice (Florida). The Hurricanes have now outscored their opponents, 102-41.

Sickles improves to 3-0 after 27-7 Victory over Newsome

Lithia, Florida-- After a one hour rain delay the Newsome Wolves took on the Sickles Gryphons in Lithia Thursday, and the visitors wasted little time in this one as they quickly marched down the field for an early score.  

Quarterback Issac Holder found a wide open Jaaron Barrett down the sidelines to put sickles up 7-0.

Then before the first half was over, Sickles added a pair of field goals to take a 13-0 lead. 

Ray Ray McCloud named Player of the Week

Tampa, FL - Sickles running back Ray Ray McCloud is the 10 News Sports Player of the Week.

Last Friday McCloud rushed for 232 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Gryphons defeat the Durant Cougars 28-0.

McCloud is leading the bay area in rushing, and the Gryphons are off to a 2-0 start, but it's the end of the season he's concerned about most.
