Sports Cast for August 22nd:

Okeechobee Brahman football kicks off the 2014 season with their preseason classic tonight against the Lake Placid Green Dragons. The Brahmans feature a younger and inexperienced group with potential. They return only six starters from last year’s team due to graduation, transfers, and injuries.

The Brahmans will show off their new Pistol Wing T offense.   They will be without top threat Antawyn Fludd who is nursing an injury.

Brahman Coach Chris Branham says he’s also at a disadvantage because he knows almost nothing about Lake Placid. Branham said he hasn’t been able to watch any game tape on the Green Dragons who went 2-7 last year and have a new coach, Jason Robinson. Coach Branham said he doesn’t expect the defensive battle the two teams played last year in Lake Placid which Okeechobee won 8-6.

Kickoff tonight is at 7 pm.   The pregame shows begin at 6 pm tonight.

OYFL hosting Lake Placid tomorrow for youth football at Brahman Stadium starting at 9 am.
