Tajee Fullwood sprints upfield with a pass from Deiondre Porter – Fullwood won the South MVP award
SEBRING — If commitments hold true, the USF Bulls will have a very potent combo heading their way in February.
Tampa Bay Tech ATH Tajee Fullwood caught two Tyler Kaminski (Palm Harbor University High School) touchdown passes and Deiondre Porter kept the North guessing as the two quarterbacks helped the South beat the North 44-24 in the 59th annual Florida Athletic Coaches Association All-Star game.
Kaminski threw three touchdown passes overall and had one dropped in the fourth quarter. Porter hooked up with teammate Ventell Bryant (Temple) to keep the South offense moving.
Fullwood – the South’s MVP – and Porter led a dominant South offense and the defense wasn’t too shabby either – with Georgia commit Keyon Brown dominating the defensive line.
Brown, from nearby Wauchula Hardee County – was all but unblockable – constantly harassing North QB’s Charlie Kelly (Tallahassee Rickards) and West Florida’s Joey Baker.
Tallahassee North Florida Christian RB Jonathan Vickers was the main offensive threat for the North. The Florida State commit won MVP honors for his squad.
The game started badly for the North – when East Lee County (Lehigh Acres) DB Winfred Ward III stepped in front of a screen pass and returned it 53 yards for a touchdown, putting the South on top 7-0.
The North team tied the game with a Buddy Edwards (Lake Butler, Union County) four yard run – and took a 10-7 lead near the end of the first on Ryan Feely‘s 21 yard field goal with 19 seconds left in the quarter.
Feely, from Tallahassee Leon – is the third generation of his family to play in the FACA all-star game.
The South took the lead for good when Porter found Fullwood in the flat, and the Rivals Three-star ATH broke two tackles on a 23 yard run to the end zone on the first play of the second quarter.
The South would add a score by Anthony Rice from Tavernier Coral Shores took a fourth-down handoff and burst 32 yards for a score.
After the North was unable to move the ball on the second half kickoff, the South made its most costly mental mistake, touching a punt deep in its own territory. Kelly hooked up with teammate Stephen Denmark to cut the lead to 21-17, but that was as close as it got.
The South scored 17 unanswered points – including a 51 yard burst by Sarasota Booker RB Marlon Mack. Mack, a UCLA commitment, has been targeted by several schools with the coaching changes in Los Angeles. Continue Reading by Clicking Here
