2012 High School Football Preview: The top 10 games to watch this season
Atlantic at American Heritage, 7:30 p.m., Aug. 30
Cross-town rivals met for the first time last year. Heritage edged out Atlantic by five points in a very physical game. Expect another classic in Delray Beach.
Glades Central at Dwyer, 7 p.m., Aug. 31
No ESPN cameras this year, but it's still a highlight-reel matchup. Dwyer hopes a home crowd helps bring its first win over the Raiders in seven tries.
Seminole Ridge at Palm Beach Central, 7:30 p.m., Aug. 31
A newly established large-school power, Ridge, faces a fast-rising program in Central with tons of size, speed and talent in a playoff rematch.
American Heritage at Glades Central, 7:30 p.m., Sept. 14
The 2011 version of this game, an overtime thriller, was one of the best games in recent memory. Two reloaded squads go at it again, this time in Belle Glade.
Dwyer at Seminole Ridge, 7:30 p.m., Sept. 14
Some of the state's top defensive players on the field in a non-district clash of state-title contenders.
Palm Beach Central at Park Vista, 7 p.m., Oct. 5
Two teams stocked with major size and speed meet in a game that could decide the District 10-8A title.
Seminole Ridge at Palm Beach Gardens, 7 p.m., Oct. 19
New rivals delivered two classics last fall, and Ridge will be looking for road revenge after Gardens' playoff win in Loxahatchee last November.
Royal Palm Beach at Atlantic, 7 p.m., Oct. 26
In a district with Dwyer, this is potentially a must-win game for both teams, as they've both struggled against the Panthers in recent years.
Dwyer at American Heritage, 7:30 p.m., Nov. 9
Could be the game of the year. Two of the state's best cleared room on their schedules to have it out in Delray Beach.
Glades Central at Pahokee, 7:30 p.m., Nov. 9
It's the Muck Bowl. The last three years have been Glades Central cakewalks, but the 2012 edition could be a lot closer.
