Inside Look into Week 5

Hard to believe that we are entering week 5 of the prep football season. So far, there have been plenty of ups and downs for our area teams and fans. As we enter into week 5, Milton is hoping to keep up their season and their winning ways, while Pace and Jay are hoping their luck changes as they try and get healed up for the second part of the season.

Graceville (2-2) @ Jay (0-4)-Kickoff 7:00pm Jay is still in search of their first victory of the 2015 season. The injury bug has definitely hurt the Royals as their roster has taken a hit with at least 4 starters being out, some for the season. This is significant because these starters are all potentially two-way players, which equates to more like 8 starters being hurt. The hope is this week that some of the injured will be ready to go against the Tigers from Graceville and improve the depth issue the Royals’ coaching staff is having to deal with. While Graceville started out their season 0-2, they have since won two in a row, last week beating Holmes County, 40-16.

Last year, the Royals defeated the Tigers, 26-17.

Milton (4-0) @ Pine Forest(3-1) -Kickoff 7:00pm Milton continued its winning ways when they defeated Catholic last week, 42-21. The Panthers are impressing this year on the ground and in the air. Still leaning more heavily on the run, however the Panthers’ offense is developing their passing game and becoming more of a balanced attack than previously anticipated. They face Pine Forest this week in what promises to be a test for the Panthers. Pine Forest is 3-1, with their only loss being a head-scratcher to Choctaw.

Last year, the Panthers defeated Pine Forest 28-26 in a nail bitter.

Pace (2-2) @ Crestview(2-2)- Kickoff 7:00pm Pace got their record back to .500 last week with the anticipated victory over winless Washington. This week, the Patriots travel to Okaloosa County to face Crestview. Not much is known about Crestivew. They started out the season destroying Northview, then lost by 5 to Mosley. Since then, they have lost to St. Martin, a school from Mississippi, and beat the International  School of Broward last week 53-6. Who knows what the Bulldogs are all about?

Last year Pace and Crestview did not play.
