IMMOKALEE, FL — FOX Sports Florida announced today they will be featuring the Immokalee-Olney Good Counsel game on FOXSportsFlorida.com via Prep Zone, presented by Checkers. Dave Reynolds will call the games, alongside color commentator John Kaleo, and Roxanne Wilder will be reporting from the sidelines.
On Friday, Aug. 30th, at 7:30 p.m., Prep Zone heads to Collier County for an out-of-state showdown between visiting Olney (Md.) Good Counsel and Immokalee. The Falcons, the four-time defending Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champions, had their 11-game winning streak snapped last week by Baltimore rival Gilman, 20-14, its first in-state setback since 2010. Good Counsel senior running back Leo Ekwoge (Western Michigan) injured his left knee and is unlikely to play against Immokalee. The Falcons’ offense is bolstered by a massive offensive line, led by a pair of senior Sams: 6-foot-4, 292-pound Sam Mustipher (Notre Dame) and 6-foot-3, 325-pound Sam Madaras. Defensively, Good Counsel’s strength also resides up front where 6-foot-5, 240-pound end Jesse Aniebonam wreaks havoc.
The host Indians, who lost a one-point heartbreaker to Tallahassee Godby in last year’s Class 5A championship, won’t be able to match the Falcons’ strength. But Immokalee has speed to burn on both sides of the ball, led by a trio of talented seniors: 5-foot-11, 189-pound senior running back D’Ernest Johnson, 6-foot-3, 197-pound wide receiver/defensive back Jimmy Bayes (South Florida) and 5-foot-10, 175-pound defensive back J.C. Jackson (Florida).
