HomeTeam 100: Players 61-70

Our countdown of the bay area's top football players rolls on, with Nos. 61-70. Look back on the countdown so far here:

91-100

81-90

71-80

Top players more

  • 61. Ernest Suttles

    2011 stats:

    80 tackles, five sacks, one fumble recovery

    The breakdown:

    Gaither senior DL is a promising prospect, and at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds has the speed and athleticism to play end but also the strength to overpower linemen on the interior and push them into the backfield.

  • 62. Antonio Guerad

    2011 stats:

    32 tackles, two sacks, three passes defensed

    The breakdown:

    The senior DL is the anchor of Tampa Bay Tech’s defensive line, which is expected to be among the best in Tampa Bay. At 6-4, 250, he is a disruptive force off the edge for TBT.

  • 63. Jeremy Kerr

    2011 stats:

    Three receptions, 64 yards, one TD

    The breakdown:

    The Miami commitment, and MVP of one of the ’Canes’ summer camps, is highly regarded for his blocking in St. Petersburg’s run-first scheme. But with his 6-foot-6, 255-pound frame, the senior TE has the tools to improve on his pass catching stats from 2011.

  • 64. Kendall Pearcey 64. ATH Kendall Pearcey, Steinbrenner

    2011 stats:

    776 yards rushing, 142 yards receiving, 16 total touchdowns

    The breakdown:

    The Steinbrenner senior ATH (5-9, 190) averaged better than 10 yards a touch between almost 100 carries and his receptions and returns. And he says last fall was just a taste of what he can do.

  • 65. Shug Oyegunle

    2011 stats:

    481 yards rushing, 160 receiving

    The breakdown:

    The Gaither senior (5-9, 175) can do a little bit of everything, and Gaither is counting on it for 2012. A former starting quarterback, Oyegunle’s great speed and playmaking ability have made him a dual-threat athlete colleges are finding attractive.

  • 66. Robby Garcia

    2011 stats:

    31 tackles, eight sacks, six pancake blocks

    The breakdown:

    The Jesuit senior (6-4, 260) is a key part of both Jesuit lines, but the USF verbal commitment is best at defensive tackle, where last year he proved to be an impact player. Look for bigger things in 2012 on a line stacked with talent.

  • 67. Reilly Gibbons

    2011 stats:

    18 catches, 83 yards

    The breakdown:

    The SPC junior LT is making the transition to left tackle, but it has been a smooth one and colleges have taken notice as he now has 16 BCS offers. At 6-6, 260, he should dominate at his classification this fall.

  • 68. Andre Simpson

    2011 stats:

    139 carries, 799 yards, five TDs

    The breakdown:

    At 6-1, 190 with a nice wiggle, the Leto RB has 1,000 yards written all over him. On an improved Leto squad, the senior, who had five straight 100-yard games in 2011, is primed for a big season.

  • 69. Todd Macon

    2011 stats:

    157 carries, 1,153 yards, 14 TDs

    The breakdown:

    The Admiral Farragut RB broke out last season in a big way, including a career-high 293 yards in one game. The return of Cortavious Givens may cut into the senior’s carries for 2012, but the 5-10, 200-pounder will still be a top contributor for the defending state runnersup.

  • 70. Harry Brown

    2011 stats:

    65 tackles, eight sacks; 325 yards rushing, five TDs

    The breakdown:

    Some doubt the Largo DL/LB because of his 5-11, 205-pound frame but his intelligence, versatility and just about every other positive adjective you can attach to his name make him pretty much invaluable to the Packers.
