Miami Central v. Booker T. Washington: Watch live

Watch the South Florida Sports Network Game of the Week live starting at 7 Eastern.

High School football is a huge deal in South Florida. And perhaps no game will be bigger than Friday's contest between Miami's Booker T. Washington and Central High Schools.

Both schools are nationally ranked and have a number of top prospects.

Booker T. Washington is led by quarterback Treon Harris, a Florida State commitment, and Chad Thomas, a defensive end and Miami commitment. Nigel Bethel, a three-star corner and Miami commitment, will hope to slow down Central's offense.

Booker T. Washington is fresh off a dominating victory on the road at Norcross (Ga.), one of the top programs in the Peach State.

This contest will be a classic battle of speed (Booker T.) v. size (Central). Not only is Central a considerably larger school in terms of enrollment, but it has a massive offensive line, with a star in Trevor Darling, a Miami commitment, at tackle.

Central's rushing attack behind that line is perhaps the best in the country. Dalvin Cook, a five-star running back and Florida commit, and Joseph Yearby, a four-star back and Miami commitment, are unquestionably the best running back pair in the nation.

Can Booker T. turn this into a race? Or will Central dictate pace and control the line of scrimmage, grounding it out on the ground?

If Booker T. commits too much on defense to stop the run, however, Central can go over the top to 2015 star Da'Vante Phillips.

Be sure to tune in at 7 ET.
