Kickoff classic shuffle for Palm Beach Central, Atlantic 

By Jason Lieser

Scheduling conflicts have forced Atlantic and Palm Beach Central to alter their plans for this week’s kickoff classic games.

The Broncos originally were set to host Fort Lauderdale-Northeast on Thursday at 7 p.m., but that school cancelled last week. Instead, Palm Beach Central will welcome Coconut Creek in the same time slot.

“I would be really upset if I didn’t have anything Thursday night,” Palm Beach Central Athletic Director Jeff Schwartz said. “I’m very appreciative of Coconut Creek for being able to jump in and do it.”

Atlantic had scheduled a kickoff classic game with Coconut Creek, but those plans fell apart before they were finalized. The Eagles are now looking for a new opponent, but are willing to play a green-white scrimmage in lieu of a kickoff classic if nothing materializes, coach Andre Thaddies said.
