Florida State commits Matt Elam, Greg Dent named MaxPreps All-Americans 

By Jason Lieser

Dwyer LB/RB Matt Elam and Glades Central CB/WR Greg Dent, arguably the area’s two most dominant players this past season, were selected as All-Americans by MaxPreps.com.

Despite sitting out the second half in several blowout wins, Elam had 61 tackles, including 15 for negative yardage. Offensively, he rushed for 1,883 yards and 27 touchdowns on just 178 attempts in 15 games.

Dent caught 54 passes for 1,387 yards and 14 touchdowns in 14 games for the Raiders. He also had two interceptions and scored twice on special teams.
