Game 6 - Cocoa takes on American Heritage-Delray

GAME 6 - Last year's pre-season matchup between two state powers was very one-sided. The fact the game 'didn't count' didn't spoil the atmosphere as two small school powers battled. Now it's the regular season and both schools are looking for a signature win. Cocoa travels to Delray to face American Heritage.

GAME SIX - Power Programs collide

The Skinny: Both schools are no stranger to the state playoffs - or even the state championship game. Cocoa plays in the rugged 4A class that includes University School and Booker T. Washington - a gauntlet of its own. American Heritage plays in the 3A class and will be the favorite to get to Orlando with U-school moving up.

vs
COCOA
AMERICAN HERITAGE
Prediction: COCOA

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

COCOA - RB Lorenzo Pratt, DB James Folston, Jr. OL Freddie Booth-Lloyd

AMERICAN HERITAGE - QB Kyle Hollander, DB Desmond Cain, RB Devin Singletary

OUTLOOK: : Both American Heritage-Delray and Cocoa got 'get back' wins last week and that has helped right the ships after both suffered early-season losses.

Both are 'rebuilding' if you can call it that - having lost 4/5ths of each offensive unit's production to graduation. Last year's stars - Greg Bryant (AHD) and Tarean Folston are gone but this year's new stars are out.

The Stallions downed a tough Glades Central team 21-16 last week, playing on a Saturday while Cocoa got a much-needed win over Astronaut 17-14 after not being able to play East Lee County two weeks ago.

Defense will dominate this game as both teams play 'fly-to-the-ball style defense.
