It was a strong year for area Class 4A teams in 2008. Dwyer, Boca Raton, Okeechobee and Fort Pierce Westwood produced quality playoff teams and each was well represented on the all-state list.
A total of 18 local players were honored to some degree, with seven local players voted to the first team.
All-state picks included Florida State commit Lonnie Pryor and Post big schools Defensive Player of the Year Matt Elam.
Dwyer, which finished the regular season ranked No. 2 in this area, also placed seniors Bradley Wallace and Irvin Titre on the roster. In total, six Panthers were recognized.
Offensive linemen Bradley Luc (Olympic Heights) and Tony Kibler (Okeechobee) were first-team selections. Fort Pierce Westwood’s massive defensive tackle Luther Robinson, a highly coveted recruit, also made the list.
Quarterbacks Eddie Sullivan of Boca Raton and Fort Pierce Westwood’s Isaac Virgin were picked for the third team and honorable mention list, respectively.
