Prep football: Kickoff Classic schedules, preseason rankings released
With Kickoff Classics schedule for tomorrow night (Friday), Windermere Prep coach Jacob Doss said he has seen a difference in his boys as they prepare for their game at The Master’s Academy in Oviedo.
“The sense of urgency,” Doss said, explaining the difference. “We’re looking down the tunnel at a game.”
That sense of urgency and excitement is contagious around the area, as programs and players are eager to take on — and hit — someone wearing a different jersey. They’ll get just that opportunity in a little over 24 hours.
Here’s the schedule for Friday’s Kickoff Classics:
Windermere Prep @ The Master’s Academy, 7 p.m.
Foundation Academy @ Lake Highland Prep, 7 p.m.
Santa Fe Catholic @ CFCA, 7 p.m.
Seven Rivers Christian @ Legacy Charter, 7 p.m.
Ocoee @ Dr. Phillips, 7:30 p.m.
Olympia @ Boone, 7:30 p.m.
