RECRUITING: Championship forecast? Rainey!

For two consecutive years Lakeland has met St. Thomas Acquinas in the State finals, and for two consecutive years, St. Thomas Acquinas has been unable to corral dynamic running back Chris Rainey. Rainey is a member of the initial Scout.com Hot 100 for the Class of 2007, and you can see why as he has sliced and diced the Raider defense two years running.

Rainey is a big reason why Lakeland should be favored to win its third straight title in 2006.
