Previewing tonight's Pinewood Christian/Riverside Military playoff game:

When: 7:30 tonight

Where: Maginnis Field

Directions: From Gainesville, drive North on Ronnie Greene Parkway and turn left on Riverside Drive. Follow Riverside Drive onto the school’s campus. Parking available along Riverside Drive and adjacent to the school’s field house.

Records: Riverside Military (6-4 No. 2 GISA North); Pinewood Christian (8-2, No. 3 GISA)

Coaches: Riverside Military, Chris Lancaster; Pinewood Christian, Keith Wasson

Key players: Riverside, RB/LB Tersoo Uhaa (5-10, 200 Sr.); QB Bill Dearybury (6-0, 180 Sr.); DL/OL Colton Keig (6-3, 260 Jr.). Pinewood Christian, OL/DL Gordon Warnell (6-3, 260 Sr.); RB Lane Miller (6-0, 200 Sr.); QB Trent Sikes (6-0, 170 Sr.).

Outlook: Riverside coach Chris Lancaster is thankful for home field advantage in the opening round of the playoffs, and pleased not to have to make a trip across the state.

But the Eagles’ first-year coach is looking for a little support from the community with the school’s cadets leaving school on Friday for a two-week Thanksgiving furlough.

"We would love for the community to come out and watch our kids play tonight," Lancaster said. Riverside hopes to move into the second round behind the running attack led by senior tailback Tersoo Uhaa (1,296 yards, 26 TDs).

The Eagles also have a strong passing attack with senior quarterback Bill Dearybury (1,338 yards, 15 TDs) throwing to receivers Ewin Holyfield (438 yards), Connor Cuevas (290 yards) and tight end Kyle Glennon (351 yards).

Prediction: RIVERSIDE MILITARY. Eagles continue their hot streak from second half of the regular season.
