Hints: The great race of cheetahs continues. Nease has won more playoffs this season than he has won the regular seasons of 2019 and 20, combined. This is how radical the transformation is for the leopards. They cracked another upset in last week’s playoff in the Panhandle. QB Marcus Stokes He’s run for 2,506 yards (22 TDs, 6 INTs) this season, but it was a 29-yard TD run in crunch time that helped the Panthers put Niceville away. WR Dom Henry He had finished his 100-yard streak last week, but he made it to the end zone. Henry leads the 1,435 yards (12 TDs) state. pound Ben Bogle He had 21 tackles against Niceville. He has 185 tackles this season, including 31 for losses and 17 sacks. The pressure on Nease’s attack will be to find a path to the end zone against one of the best defenses in the state. Buchholz allowed only three opponents to reach double figures in scoring (Bartram Trail, Cardinal Gibbons, Chiles) and keeps the opponent at only 7.3 points per game. Can Nease extend his dream season and reach the state semi-finals since 2007?

Zone 1-5A

3. The Agency (10-2) at 1. Baker County (10-2), 7 p.m.

way here: And both d. Bishop Kenny, 52-24; Dr.. Raines, 32-27; Baker County d. white, 28-12; Dr.. West Florida, 13-10.

winner gets: Clearwater (.635) / Sebring (.573); Kilian (.694) / Miami Central (.656); Merritt Island (671) / Satellite (578.) in the state semifinals. 618 RPI in Baker County means it can host Sebring or Satellite but travel to face other teams.

Hints: The War Eagles face their third opponent in a row in the region. Wakulla dealt with Raines last week by forcing three transformations and turning it all into points. Defensively, Baker County will focus on right-back RB Zamarion Smith (1,737 yards, 17 TDs), who went for 175 of those last week. The Wildcats excel at running the ball hard and playing solid defense. back system Cam Smith (1300 yard dash, 15 TD) and Jamarian Baker (875 rushing yards, 13 TDs), tangled with a passing Noah Ray (1,335 rushing yards, 12 TDs) gives Baker County a balanced offense. But the backbone of this Wildcats team is defense, and a lot of it. pound Camilo Rollins (111 cut ball, 9 TFL), Bryce Kazmirchak (81 pieces of paper, 9 bags) and Toby Kinghorn (76 interventions, 6 bags) difficult. DE Orlando Holland (18 bags) is one of the best in the area at dropping the middle. This does not even include the secondary, which is the most stolen unit in the area. Jamil Jones He has 904/912 and 386 Top 10 interceptions. Ronnie Ellis He maintained his win over West Florida last week with his fifth pick of the season with less than a minute to play.

1-4A area

2. Paul (7-2) at 1. South Walton (10-1), 8:30 p.m.

way here: Paul D. Gadsden County, 27-6; South Walton d. Baldwin, 42-28. Both teams had a farewell in the first round.

winner gets: Lakewood (674) / Clewiston (584.); Gulliver Prep (.722) / Cardinal Gibbons (.694); Cocoa (.768) / Villages (.702) in the state semifinals. The Bolles’ 652 RPI means he can host Clewiston but he will travel to face any of the other teams.

Hints: We call this a collision of patterns. The Seahawks average 42.2 points per game. The Bulldogs have given up only 73 points on the defensive side of the ball this season (8.1 points per inch). Big difference between these teams? Contest. The South Walton schedule was packed with smaller regular season programs (4 teams from Category 1A, 3 teams from Category 4A, 1 team from 3A and 2A, and 1 independent team). Paul played two smaller rating schools, Trinity Christian and Christian University and one independent (TRU Prep). Bulldogs have a rugged terrain game centered around RB caddy frow (1,245 rushing yards, 18 TD) and a strong offensive line. Bolles want to tire teams out in the line of scrimmage and then close the game with defense. pound Jack Beeburn (84 pieces of paper, 27 bags, 11 bags), DLs Bradley Man (45 pieces, 5 bags) and Hayden Schwartz (47 pieces of napkins, 6 bags), left back Trent Carter (50 handles) and DB Spencer surface (48 interventions, 4 intelligence) tops the defense. DB Kavon Miller He also has four interceptions and adds an edge to the Bolles Special Teams. He took a kick-starter to drop last week.

winner gets: First Baptist Academy (.660) / Northside Christian (.575); John Carroll Catholic (.569) / Champagne Catholic (.639); Orlando Christian Prep (.675) / Zephyrhills Christian (.594) in the state semifinals. Trinity’s .613 RPI means it could host Northside Christian, John Carroll Catholic or Zephyrhills Christian in the state semifinals. He will travel to meet other teams.

HintsMonroe scored the biggest win in program history when he stunned Christian University. It was the Bobcats’ first-ever playoff victory. the prize? Rendezvous with Trinity’s presumed state championship favorite. The teams share one opponent – Saint John Paul II. Monroe won that match with a score of 19-9. The Conquistadors won the bid for the clock last week. RB Triawn Web He had the best lunge of his career last week (215 yards, 3 TDs on just 13 gigs). That was his first game over 100 yards from the rush since his victory over Reigns on October 30, 2020. Webb, a member of the Oklahoma team, has been handicapped with injuries. With him in good health Darnell Rogers (1032 fast yards, 10 TDs), the conquerors are very hard to defend. QB Colin Hurley He struggled with his growing pains (5 TDs, 8 INTs) in the second half of the season against a tighter schedule, but he still managed to light up a team. Hurley had a dominant effort against Plantation American Heritage (7 of 9 passes, 163 yards, 3 TDs) in Week 7. His top goal is Fred Highsmith (11 TDs on 28 catches, 474 receiving yards). pound Caden Morell (119 treatments, 10.5 liters), Cameron Anderson (82 assists, 14 TFL, 3 intelligence) and DL/LB Jonathan Goddard Jr. (61 assists, 5.5 TFL) leads Trinity in tackles. another LB, Thomas Keaton, leads the team with four interceptions.

winner gets: Becker (.624) / Chipley (.577); Madison County (.620) / Blountstown (.689); Hawthorne (.672)/Bahoki (.616) in the state semifinals. The Federation’s 630 RPI means it could host Baker, Chipley, Madison County and Pahokee in the state’s semifinals. He will travel to meet Blountstown or Hawthorne.

Hints: Can Shefland slow down the fast-paced Tigers’ attack? Union County enters this scoreboard that lights up 41.7 points per game. RB Rayvon Durant Hilliard carved last week with a rushing 157 yards, igniting a ground game that blasted 467 yards. Durant is not alone. RBs Thomas Williams (11 TDs dash), Caleb Crawford (11 TDs dash), Dylan Deston (5 TDs rushing) and Dayviontae Thompson (5 TDs lunge) Take turns finding the end zone. pound Curran Web (94 sheets of paper, 30 sheets of TFL sheets, 14 bags) and Trevor Holzendorf (86 assists, 12.5 TFL) close to 100 seasons. Deston has six of the Tigers’ 16 interceptions. The teams share three common competitors, Dixie County, Trenton and Williston.
