Five things I learned this weekend:

Poole play
Last year, ESPNU 150 athlete Brian Poole (Bradenton, Fla./Southeast) helped Southeast get to a 24-7 halftime lead over rival Bradenton Manatee before he cramped up and spent much of the second half on the sidelines.

This year the Southeast coaching staff wanted to preserve Poole's energy for a second-half run in hopes of reversing the trend. Instead Poole watched as Manatee punished Southeast en route to a 48-6 victory.
