Fort Myers Southwest Florida Christian Academy at Bradenton Christian
When: 7:30 p.m.
The scoop: Bradenton Christian has dropped two in a row to Fort Myers Southwest Florida Christian Academy, including a 27-20 loss last season. Southwest Florida Christian Academy, however, replaces its top two skill players, while the Panthers return almost entirely intact. Dominick Otteni enters his second season as BCS' quarterback and for the first time he has more than just a preseason worth of practices behind him. Bradenton Christian's defense will have to improve after allowing 41.2 points per game last year. Linebacker Brett Gerber, who picked up a South Florida offer this summer, returning for his junior year should help. Guard Dillon Martino is Southwest Florida Christian's top player and was an All-Area honorable mention by The News-Press last fall.
Never miss a local story.
Prediction: Bradenton Christian 31, Southwest Florida Christian Academy 28
