Hurricanes excited to head to Plant

Joe Kinnan's scheduling of Tampa Plant for Manatee's kickoff classic is twofold.
One, Kinnan wanted to give his Hurricanes some good competition. Plant, which won the Class 4A state title last season, should provide plenty.
Second, the coach wants his team to experience a game in Plant's Dad's Stadium.
"That's a neat stadium," Kinnan said. "It's got a grandstand, it's got a roof on it, the track goes behind the stadium...
"I played there when I was in high school," he added. "It hasn't changed a whole lot."
After meeting in the preseason, the Canes and Panthers could meet in the postseason -Plant was bumped to Class 5A for the 2009-10 season.
