Wideman had 3 touchdowns as Venice took a dominating 34-17 win over Manatee. What’s most impressive is this Venice team is primarily a running team with QB Steffan Johnson. Palmetto playing some great ball this year but for the last 10-15 years from Manatee County to Naples its been Venice and Naples that have represented and not much different this year. Bring it up because 2 pretty good NFL running backs come from SW Florida in Carlos Hyde ( Naples High) and Marlon Mack ( Sarasota). Hard to forget Edgerrin James, Sammy Watkins, Trey Burton, Kearse and many many others. lots of great players in SW Florida and glad to hear of the Gator presence in the area.
