Football: Dwyer-Glades Central will play on ESPN on Labor Day 

By Jeff Greer

After refusing for months to confirm that Dwyer and Glades Central’s highly anticipated Week 1 game would be televised, ESPN finally and officially announced that Dwyer will play at Glades Central at 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 5, on ESPN.

The Post first reported that the game could be televised in June, but ESPN refused to confirm that the game would be broadcast.

The game will be played at Glades Central’s Effie Grear Field in Belle Glade. It’ll be the second time playing on national TV for both schools: Dwyer lost a heartbreaker to Cleveland-Glenville on ESPN last season, while Glades Central lost to Byrnes High of South Carolina in 2006 on ESPN.

It will be the first time a football game in Palm Beach County has ever been televised, and ESPN picked a good one. Both teams have several intriguing story lines entering the 2011 season.

Glades Central has a new coach in Roosevelt Blackmon and a new quarterback in Tanner Redish, a transfer from Glades Day. Dwyer quickly reloaded its talent pool after graduating 10 college signees, including four who chose BCS programs.

Regardless of the turnover, the two teams have been ranked among the best in the country in the preseason buildup to Week 1. Dwyer is ranked first and Glades Central second in the Post‘s Preseason Top 25. Sports Illustrated ranked Dwyer 11th and Glades Central 22nd in its national rankings earlier this week, and MaxPreps and Rivals both ranked the schools in their respective national polls.

The last time the two teams met, Glades Central defeated Dwyer 21-7 in Palm Beach Gardens in the opening week of the 2009 season.
