To preview the 2013 high school football season, The Tampa Tribune is counting down the top five teams in Pasco County. These preseason rankings were voted on by by Tribune correspondents Mike Camunas, Chris Errington, Kyle LoJacono, Bart O’ Connell, Kenny Sanders and Andy Villamarzo.

The Anclote High football team is coming off its best season in the program’s short history. And the Sharks are already eyeing to make this season better.

The Sharks return a core of players that led them to their first state playoff berth after winning six straight down the stretch.

Anclote has a fast defense, a deep receiving core and one the top rushing attacks in the county. Bruising back Willie Barrett will see many touches as Anclote is favored to win the new Class 5A-District 7 and host its first postseason game. Coach Matt Wicks has built a respectable program that may be the best team on the west side of the county.
