Shashaty, Bertani and Guadolo on radio

After an exciting first week of the 2011 high school football season, he Maroone Gridiron High School Report continues on Tuesday night from 9-10 on WQAM (560 AM).

Larry Blustein welcomes in Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian record-setting quarterback Javan Shashaty, North Miami Beach head coach Jeff Bertani and Cypress Bay head coach Mark Guandolo.

After a tough first quarter of the opening game of the season against Highlands Christian, Shashaty and his teammates rebounded in a major way.

One of the all-time leading passers in the state of Florida, the first game of his senior season will certainly set he tone as the 6-1, 175-pounder threw for a Broward County single game record of 537 yards and 8 touchdown passes.

With all the quarterbacks in south Florida getting much of the attention, this is the one signal caller that needs to be followed each week as we continue to move in on history!

An opening night loss to traditional power Northwestern will not shake Bertani and his young Chargers.

In that setback to the Bulls, he found out plenty about a team that lost several key players from last year. There is plenty o talent on NMB this season. Look for a number of very young players to take the lead role.

The Chargers will travel to Key West on Friday for another major challenge. NMB’s schedule is easily one of the toughest in the state.

It would have been easy for Coach Guandolo and his players to look ahead to Week 2 - before playing the opening game of the season against Deerfield Beach.

Although there were a number of mistakes made, they talent the Lightning has on board certainly gave them enough last week to beat an improving Bucks’ squad.

There were some good things that came out of the game, and now, the attention shifts to this Friday night and a date with national powerhouse, St. Thomas.

The Raiders beat Cypress Bay handily last year, but it was that loss that appeared to turn things around.
