Admittedly, this will be an incomplete list. There is no way to catch every single game and newspapers don’t record thorough defensive stats or linemen grades, but here are some of the performances that stood out from games I saw either in person and on DVD, read about in the paper or based on information I got from school staff.
If a deserving player is omitted, it is not intentional. Feel free to add your own additions to this list in the comments portion.
WR Chris Dunkley, Pahokee: 5 rec., 148 yards, 2 TDs and solid coverage in the secondary. (13-6 win over Atlantic)
WR/DB Greg Dent, Glades Central: 2 rec., 77 yards, TD. Had an interception and 4 tackles. (21-7 win at Dwyer)
LB Robert Way, Glades Central: 14 tackles, including 3 sacks.
LB/RB Will Powers, Jupiter Christian: 15 tackles and a game-sealing fumble recovery. Rushed 17 times for 101 yards and a TD. (21-14 win over American Heritage)
