What to watch for – SFCA: The Kings are coming off a 27-20 season opening win over Bradenton Christian where Jordan Weatherbee made 12 tackles, including two sacks. Senior running back Tristian Upton, who rushed for 1,033 yards and 16 touchdowns last week, will have a chance to showcase his talents against a Gateway defense that surrendered 45 points to East Lee County last week. Gateway: The Griffins had some fumbling issues in a 45-9 loss to East Lee County it needs to correct. They ended the loss on a high note when Rylan Powers hit Cameron Guay for a 15-yard touchdown pass.
