Most of Palm Beach County’s star players on FACA District 20 football team 

By Matt Porter

The Florida Athletic Coaches Association’s District 20 nominated its All-District team, a list of players who will be considered for spots the FACA All-Star game in December.

Players nominated include the county’s top two running backs, American Heritage’s Greg Bryant and Glades Day’s Kelvin Taylor, junior offensive lineman Kc McDermott of Palm Beach Central and Atlantic’s do-it-all threat Brisly Estime.

The coaches of District 20, which includes all of Palm Beach County, selected the team at a meeting last Wednesday night at Boynton Beach High.

District 20 includes all of Palm Beach County. However, not every Palm Beach County program is a FACA member. Not every program sent a representative to the meeting.

According to District 20 chairman and Boynton Beach coach Rick Swain, each school nominated players for the team. The top vote-getters were put to a poll of the coaches in attendance. (This, by the way, is the same process used to select teams for the annual Palm Beach County-Treasure Coast all-star game formerly known as the Outback Bowl).

The FACA All-Star Game is Dec. 19 in Sebring.
