Santaluces at Spanish River *Thursday

KOKELL: Santaluces

EL: Santaluces

“Thursday night football games in the NFL often aren’t competitive. This game might get ugly too.” -Kokell


Forest Hill at Lake Worth

KOKELL: Forest Hill

EL: Forest Hill

“This one should be a close game. No home field advantage as the Falcons field issues have forced them to get used to being on the road. The Hill by 6.” -Kokell

“The big question all season is ‘Who is Forest Hill?’ they win big games but lose the ones they should win. Honestly their season relies on a win here.” -EL


Boca Raton at Wellington

KOKELL: Wellington

EL: Wellington

“Back to being Winning Wellington?” -Kokell

“This is a tough one as both teams have struck gold a couple times but you have to base the winner off  the concept of quality wins…that goes to Welly.” -EL


Palm Beach Lakes at Palm Beach Central

KOKELL: Palm Beach Lakes

EL:Palm Beach Lakes

“Lakes is 4-o but Central is the toughest test they have faced all year at 4-1. Like me in college, the Rams will pass, barely. ” -Kokell

“GAME OF THE BLEEPING WEEK! Not an easy decision but I will go with Lakes based again solely on quality wins and point differential.” -EL


Park Vista at Palm Beach Gardens

KOKELL: Palm Beach Gardens

EL:  Palm Beach Gardens

“One of those coin flip games that you give the edge to the home team. If you are looking for a quality to check out on a Friday night, this one will have talent on the field and on the sidelines coaching. Gators squeak out the W.” -Kokell

“I don’t know what Kokell is talking about, Gators with a blowout win.” -EL


Glades Central at Dwyer

KOKELL: Glades Central

EL: Glades Central

“Glades Central is 3-3 with losses to Atlantic, Cocoa and Lakes (combined 11-2). Dwyer is at 1-3 after a heartbreaker to Martin County. Unfortunately for the Panthers, they are about to be 1-4.” -Kokell

“Not a great start to the Dwyer program but don’t say it wasn’t expected. They tough schedule continues with Glades Central.” -EL


Cardinal Newman at Saint John Paul II

KOKELL: Cardinal Newman

EL: Cardinal Newman

“Rivalry game that has been one sided of late with Newman winning the last 3 games by a combined score of 148-14. Despite Saint John Paul improving, its going to be one sided again this year.” -Kokell


Suncoast at Inlet Grove

KOKELL: Suncoast

EL: Suncoast

“The battle for The Raw. I give the edge to the Chargers in what should be a heated match up.” -Kokell

“Chargers have improved every game despite scores…they get the W.” -EL


Seminole Ridge at Okeechobee

KOKELL:  Seminole Ridge

EL: Seminole Ridge

“Okeechobee is a special place to play. Loved the atmosphere. If Ridge avoids any hiccups early, they can suck the air out of the stadium and start rolling.” -Kokell


Jensen Beach  at John Carroll

KOKELL: Jensen Beach

EL: John Carroll Catholic

“This is the CW Network Game Of The Week. TV games need stars and this game is filled with them. John Carroll QB Jay Allen is worth the watch on his own. If you haven’t seen him play, you need to. With Savion Baker, Nate Gornitzky and others by his side they will be a tough Testfor the Falcons. Ultimately though, Jensen Beach is too deep and their DL led by Manny Rogers, Austin Fitzhugh and Andrew Burnette will be the difference.” -Kokell

“Savion Baker is raw talent beyond the definition. I think his O-line comes up big against that strong talent Falcon defense.” -EL

Treasure Coast @ South Fork

KOKELL: Treasure Coast

EL: Treasure Coast

“This is a real tough match up for South Fork. TC was one of the best teams I’ve seen play this year. If you like pulling linemen, this is the game for you.” -Kokell

“TC Titans are guys. Can’t go against them.” -EL


Fort Pierce Central @ Martin County

KOKELL: Martin County

EL: Martin County

“The Tigers coaches have to make sure they don’t have a let down after a big win against Dwyer last week. Emotional win with the by week next week sets a trap. I think MC overcomes it and wins the game.” -Kokell

“Martin County is an odd team to break down but they’re at home so I give them the edge, especially after the Dwyer win.” -EL
