Scouting Report: Dunnellon, which won its first playoff game since 2003 a week ago, is winning by average of 32 points per game. Santa Fe coach Bill Wiles was an assistant at Dunnellon under head coach Richard Kennedy in 1985-86, which had former Gator receiver Ernie Mills. That 1985 football team lost in the 2A state semifinals to Fort Walton Beach Walton. Tigers won back-to-back state titles under Kennedy in 1978-79. Santa Fe, which won its first playoff game since 2004 last week, is looking for its first third round advancement since 1999. The Raiders played two 7A playoff teams in Buchholz and Tallahassee Chiles, battling the Bobcats to the end (18-14 loss) while dominating the Timberwolves (42-10). Dunnellon won at South Sumter (27-7) to clinch District 4.
