Berkeley Prep sophomore goalkeeper Bryane Heaberlin, who helped lead the Buccaneers to last season's Class 3A state title game, has been named to the highly prestigious Parade All-America team.
The team will be revealed in Sunday's edition of the magazine. Heaberlin, who posted nine shutouts and finished with a 0.85 goals-against average, is one of three Floridians on the team.
As the starting keeper for the under-17 U.S. women's national team, Heaberlin allowed no goals in the 2010 CONCACAF qualifying tournament before being called up by the under-20 squad.
She sparked a moment of international poignance in an under-17 World Cup qualifier in Costa Rica in March, embracing a Haitian goalkeeper — still reeling from that country's devastating earthquake — after the U.S.'s 9-0 victory. One by one, Heaberlin's teammates joined in.
Plant's Frazier gets offer No. 10
Though his sophomore year officially doesn't end for a couple more days, prolific Plant swingman Michael Frazier already has 10 scholarship offers.
And more could be on the way by the end of the week.
Frazier, who will attend the prestigious Nike Hoop Jamboree in St. Louis starting Thursday, already has been offered by FSU, USF, Miami, Virginia Tech, Arkansas, Alabama, Michigan, UCF, Bethune-Cookman and Ohio University.
Schools that have shown significant interest include Texas, Florida, Stanford, Penn and Harvard. Frazier, who carries a 4.2 unweighted GPA, officially may be contacted by college coaches June 15 according to NCAA guidelines.
"I'm totally open to everything right now," he said.
Frazier (6 foot 4, 180 pounds), who has eclipsed the 1,000-point mark for his career, led the county in scoring (26.7 ppg) and averaged a team-high 7.8 rebounds last season.
A member of the Florida Elite travel team, he led the squad to its second consecutive USSSA state title in Cocoa this past weekend, earning tournament MVP honors. Earlier this year, Florida Elite won the state AAU 17-and-under title for the second year in a row.
Frazier is one of only 50 sophomores invited to this week's Nike event at St. Louis University, Panthers coach Mike Phillips said.
Numbers of the day
.576 Batting average of University of Florida (and former Plant) standout Preston Tucker in eight career NCAA Tournament games. Tucker went 4-for-6 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 15-0 romp of Florida Atlantic that clinched the Gainesville Regional for UF.
.417 Batting average in three Norwich Regional games for FSU (and former Alonso) star Sherman Johnson, who was named region MVP after going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 5-3 win against Oregon. In three region contests, Johnson had two homers, a double, four RBIs and five runs.
