FOX Sports Florida, Prep Zone Game of the week features Lake Highland vs. Berkeley
SEP 11, 2013 1:39p ET
This week Prep Zone we will be showcasing schools from three different markets in Florida, plus New Orleans. Fans at Berkeley Prep in Tampa will enjoy the fan zone, and the Lake Highland Prep community in Orlando will be able to watch the game live and interact through social media. On Sept. 13, at 10 p.m., FOX Sports Florida will televise defending national champion John Curtis Christian action against Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Showcase.
On Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m., Prep Zone heads to Hillsborough County to spotlight visiting Lake Highland Prep and Berkeley Prep. The Class 5A Highlanders (0-2) have lost 11 consecutive games dating back to last season and are looking to turn things around. Senior quarterback Evan Jager, a four-year starter, will look to spark a Lake Highland offense that's scored just seven points this season. The Class 3A Buccaneers (2-0) return a slew of key performers from last season. Junior quarterback Brad Mayes, who threw for 1,200-plus yards in 2012, has a pair of top young playmakers in sophomore wide receiver Jacob Mathis and freshman tight end Jared Shimberg. Defensively, look for a talented group of linebackers, spearheaded by senior John Kastrenakes, to make things difficult for Lake Highland.
"We are looking forward to showcasing talented teams from two Florida markets," says Stephen Grecsek of OUR TEAM. "It will be a great opportunity for the Lake Highland Prep families to watch the game and cheer them on through our SnappyTV clips if they can't make the trip. We'd like to give a special thank you to FOX Sports Florida for making the game available around the country and to Checkers, once again, for their loyalty and sponsorship."
Berkeley Prep Head Coach Dominick Ciao says, "We are excited to host our guests from both Lake Highland Prep and Our Team/FOX Sports for tonight's football game. Fans statewide and across the country will be treated to a great football game via Fox Sports featuring two of Florida's premier schools. We look forward to the competition and great spirit that surrounds high school football. Best of luck to both teams, especially the Buccaneers!"
