Week 10 of the high school football regular season kicks off in Brevard County on Friday, and with that comes big games.
While every game is important to the teams and the fans, most of the district games this week will be area-wide. Here’s a quick look at what Week 10 has to offer:
Titusville-Astronaut is Friday and it could be interesting. Titusville bounced back from a series of slumps and the War Eagles improved after a painful start. Not only did they start 0-4, but they were shut out in each of those games.
Holy Trinity will play in GDC with a double purpose. First, both are longtime rivals. Second, the Tigers are trying to win District 4-1S, which they will do if they beat the Hustlers and Father Lopez beats Halifax Academy.
Viera-Melbourne has been a tight rivalry for both schools, although the Bulldogs have already secured the District 11-4S championship.
There are other teams still fighting for their own championships. Rockledge hosts Eau Gallie at McLarty Stadium, 10-3S. The Raiders are 3-0 in league play and can win outright.
Both Cocoa and Palm Bay are 3-0 in District 12-2S. The Tigers are an away team but are still heavy favorites having outscored local teams 222-3.

A special homecoming
Merritt Island recognizes its 50th anniversary 1972 state championship team. About 30 players from the team will be on hand for Friday night’s game against Satellite, and they will gather for an 11 a.m. meeting at the Gators Dockside in Cape Canaveral on Saturday. Relatives and fans are invited.
Coaches Dwight Thomas, Gerald Hodgin and Lee Mays will be in attendance along with state quarterbacks Jimmy Black, Leon Bright and Waldo Williams.
As for the game on the field, it’s a meeting of teams coached by last year’s state runner-up Mustangs. Defensive coordinator Brian Helton led the Scorpions, while offensive coordinator Tyler Murray moved on to lead the Merritt Island program.
