Lakeland running back Don'Ares Johnson is tackled by Lake Gibson's Nicholas Patterson (2) and Terrance Butler Jr.

If you’re a fan of high school football in general but don’t have a favorite team, there are plenty of games in the area to watch this season. Some of the games feature the best teams in the county, but the games don’t necessarily have to feature playoff-caliber teams to be memorable.

In fact, games involving two average but evenly matched teams can often be more fun and exciting than a two-team playoff game when one of them is an elite team that will blow the other out.

So this list may change as the season progresses, but for now, here are potentially the best games to watch each week.

Week 1: Lakeland Christian at Frostproof

This has been a friendly rivalry every time since former Frostproof coach Shannon Benton left former Lakeland Christian coach Wayne Peace’s staff in 2014. The two teams have played each year. With this year’s game being the first game of the season, it will be a good test for both teams to gauge where they stand as both are expected to contend for district titles and make deep playoff runs .
