Defensive player of the week
Brian Ackerman, Clearwater Central Catholic
Bobby Lyons hooked up with David Graziose for the winning score, but it was Ackerman who turned the tide. With CCC trailing 14-0 in the fourth quarter, Ackerman stepped in front of a pass and took it back 85 yards for a touchdown. The score breathed life into the Marauders and keyed their 15-point quarter.
