Park Vista’s Mike Matulis, Cody Preble won’t play against Palm Beach Central 

By Jeff Greer

Park Vista’s two Super 11 offensive linemen Mike Matulis and Cody Preble won’t play on Friday night at Palm Beach Central. Both have knee injuries.

The third-ranked Cobras (3-0) are playing their first District 8-6A game against the 2-0 Broncos. Park Vista has outscored opponents 124-28, thanks in large part to the space its dominant offensive line creates for explosive running back Tre Mason (No. 6 on the Big Board).

Preble (6-4, 275, No. 10 on the Big Board) said he’d be ready to play in Park Vista’s next game against Atlantic on Oct. 8.

The 6-6, 275-pound Matulis (No. 9 on the Big Board) hopes he can return for the Atlantic game.

“That’s what I’m praying for,” Matulis said via text message on Thursday. “I’m going week by week.”
