Week 3 high school football previews | St. Augustine Record


Kickoff: 6 p.m.

Records: Creekside 1-1, Paxon 2-0.

Last week: Ridgeview beat Creekside 49-17; Paxon defeated Wolfson 40-13.

Last year: Teams did not play

Players to watch: Creekside — J.T. Wood has 7 catches for 115 yards and 3 TDs, including 3 for 37 and a TD last week. Coach Sean McIntyre said Ridgeview had a high-low combination on the dangerous receiver every single play. This week the Knights will try to make sure Wood touches the ball more. Paxon — The 6-1, 220-pound Elijah Shingles rushed for 151 yards and two TDs on 11 carries last week and added six tackles.

Game info: Already this season, Creekside has learned how to win (snapping a 22-game losing streak in Week 1) and that winning doesn’t get any easier the second time around. “We had a big letdown after a big win,” McIntyre said. “We weren’t ready to play and that was my fault as a coach.” The Knights will need to tackle better and line up correctly on a consistent basis against the Golden Eagles.
