Thursday Games:

Forest Hill at Olympic Heights

KOKELL: Forest Hill

EL: Forest Hill

“Falcons are set up to be 5-3 in a “rebuilding year”. Great job by this young team.” -Kokell


Dwyer at Palm Beach Lakes

KOKELL: Palm Beach Lakes

EL: Palm Beach Lakes

“This one could get ugly, fast.” -Kokell

“PB Lakes with an early night over Dwyer.” -EL


Treasure Coast at Cardinal Newman

KOKELL: Treasure Coast

EL: Treasure Coast

“I love Newman but they are Titan Born and Titan Bred at TCHS. Treasure Coast will be too much in the trenches for the Crusaders.” -Kokell

“Both teams come in with an impressive record and team. But TC is coming off a loss that shouldn’t have happened and I know coach Jones is firing his team up for this one. Newman hasn’t faced a team like this.” -EL


Santaluces at Boca Raton

KOKELL: Santaluces

EL: Santaluces

“Coach Walker has  done a great job winning with a team that lost a bunch of transfers right before the season. This game will be close, but I have to give the edge to the Chiefs.” -Kokell

“Coe! Coe! Coe! There is a reason why he won the Fox Sports 640 COY award.”


Glades Central at Park Vista

KOKELL: Glades Central

EL: Glades Central

“Both teams have three losses, all against powerhouses. I flipped a coin and GC was tails. It better not fail.” -Kokell

“I don’t need coins to tell me GC will take this one, I HAVE WATCHED THEM!” -EL


Wellington at Palm Beach Gardens

KOKELL: Palm Beach Gardens

EL: Palm Beach Gardens

“No Abel, no victory this week. Gardens is just too deep and powerful. Hopefully the FHSAA does the right thing and overturns the end of coach Abel’s suspension and we see him back on the sideline soon.” -Kokell

“Gardens has two big games ahead of  them, this is one should help get prepared for those games.” -EL


Jupiter at Palm Beach Central

KOKELL: Palm Beach Central

EL: Palm Beach Lakes


Friday Games:

Seminole Ridge at Pahokee

KOKELL: Seminole Ridge

EL: Seminole Ridge

“Seminole Ridge had won 4 straight before running into the Palm Beach Lakes buzz saw. The Hawks get back on track with a win this week and look to win out and end the season 7-2.” -Kokell

“Tough to pick Pahokee in this one especially with Ridge coming off of a loss.” -EL


Royal Palm Beach at Martin County

KOKELL: Martin County

EL: Royal Palm Beach

“Another evenly matched game. Going to go with the Tigers on this one in a real close game again.”-Kokell

“I am high on RPB. Upset alert?” -EL


West Boca Raton at South Fork

KOKELL:  South Fork

EL: South Fork

“South Fork has one of the better game day environments in the the area. Bulldogs by two scores.” -Kokell

“The Bulldogs aren’t the most frightening team but I have seen them win this year so that gives them the edge.” -EL
