HomeTeam 100: Players 91-100

Numerous games, practices and 7-on-7s. Six weeks of debate. Two fistfights. One countdown of the top 100 football players in Tampa Bay. We'll be rolling out 10 players a day for two weeks.

Top players more

  • 91. Parker Clonts

    2011 stats:

    102 tackles, three sacks, four TDs as a fullback

    The breakdown:

    The Jesuit senior linebacker is undersized at 5-11, 210 pounds, but he brings da noise and da funk when laying a tackle on opposing ballcarriers. We saw the Elon commitment knock off two helmets last year, and we expect more heads to roll in 2012.

  • 92. AJ Sattinger

    2011 stats:

    12 catches, 156 yards, one touchdown

    The breakdown:

    The senior tight end (6-3, 220) is an excellent blocker and a perfect fit for Countryside’s pound-it-first mentality. But expect more receptions this season, as Sattinger’s soft hands become a Cougars weapon.

  • 93. Kyle Brittain

    2011 stats:

    Roughly 100 tackles, an interception and two touchdown catches

    The breakdown:

    The Clearwater Central Catholic LB/TE’s highlight video is filled with relentless pursuit, crashing hits and big plays. The Osceola transfer will play receiver and fullback this season, but his true value will come on defense, where he possesses ferocity and a knack for being in the right places at the right time.

  • 94. Jeremiah Jackson

    2011 stats:

    714 yards rushing, 6.8 yards a carry, 10 TDs; 47 tackles, four sacks

    The breakdown:

    The Hernando junior is one of the true unsung gems in Tampa Bay. At 6-1, 205, he averaged almost 7 yards a carry and is a ferocious hitter at linebacker.

  • 95. Ryan Yates

    2011 stats:

    39 tackles, 261 yards rushing, six TDs

    The breakdown:

    The senior FB/LB is a 6-foot, 230-pound short-yardage banger (13 TDs the past two seasons), but has added speed in the offseason and will also excel as the big hitter in the middle of Countryside defense.

  • 96. Reggie Brown

    2011 stats:

    22 catches, 315 yards, 4 TDs; 31 tackles, 3 INTs

    The breakdown:

    The recent Florida Atlantic commitment is a 5-11, 160-pound speedster who will get more touches in 2012. We see this Jesuit senior athlete doubling his scoring output from a year ago, and then some.

  • 97. Quentin Cumings

    2011 stats:

    Roughly 100 tackles

    The breakdown:

    The senior LB/RB is a disruptive 6-1, 215-pound middle linebacker who made a name for himself last year with some bone-crushing hits. He’s too good to come off the field for Palm Harbor University.

  • 98. Martin Ruiz

    2011 stats:

    783 yards, 11 TDs, 7 yards a carry

    The breakdown:

    Ruiz will share carries with Michael Duclos, but improved size and strength may mean a bigger piece of the pie for 5-foot-10, 190-pound Robinson senior.

  • 99. Caleb McCullough

    2011 stats:

    Nearly 1,000 total yards from scrimmage, seven TDs

    The breakdown:

    Boca Ciega senior RB/CB (5-10, 170) is a big-time breakout candidate for 2012. He looked fabulous in a spring scrimmage at Countryside, and was a top 7-on-7 and combine performer in the offseason. Could emerge as an all-county performer.

  • 100. Will Allen

    2011 stats:

    Started all 10 games

    The breakdown:

    The Springstead senior OT is brainy enough to earn offers from schools like Harvard, but he lost 50 pounds in the offseason off his now 6-7, 270-pound frame in order to gain speed and strength in his quest for a BCS offer.
