Offensive Player of the Year
JaQuez Jenkins, Sr., Lakewood
What Jenkins does with the ball in his hands goes beyond scrambling. The quarterback runs like a gifted running back, throws like Peyton Manning and has the winning instincts of Joe Montana. Jenkins put all of his physical gifts together this season, throwing for 1,873 yards and 22 touchdowns and running for 585 and six more TDs. His best performance came against Largo. Trailing 24-6 in the final seven minutes of regulation, Jenkins engineered the county's greatest comeback this season with three scores to help the Spartans win 32-24. It is the only time Largo has lost a regular-season game in the past two seasons.
Fun fact: One of Jenkins' idols is former Boca Ciega star and Times player of the year Terrell Skinner.
What's next: Jenkins is rehabbing after tearing the medial collateral ligament in his knee in the season finale. He has already committed to USF.
Defensive Player of the Year
Mike Marry, Sr., Largo
Whenever the Packers needed a key stop, they counted on Marry. Rated one of the top linebackers in the nation, Marry is blessed with unprecedented range and versatility. More than just a rugged run stopper, he can drop back deep into the secondary on passing downs. He also was at the nerve center of the county's top defense, which posted four shutouts. Using his cat-like quickness, Marry registered 100 tackles, seven sacks and an interception.
Fun fact: This is the second straight year Marry has been voted the Times' defensive player of the year. Last season he had 122 tackles, four sacks and an interception.
What's next: Marry has more than 30 offers and plans to take recruiting trips to Ole Miss and Duke in January.
