HOMESTEAD,Fla. -- The Sean Taylor Classic Top 15 offensive performers are names you'll possibly see playing on Saturday and Sunday's. A total of six games were played. That fielded over 120 gifted youth football players. But, only the Top 15 game changers were chosen. The methodology was simple. Who dominated from start to finish, and delivered the most notable plays on the biggest stage at Harris Field.
Florida City Razorbacks (Jr. Pee Wee) all-around athlete Rashard Snow was perhaps the most dominating overall player this past Saturday. Snow shined in all three phases of the game and answered during crunch time moments on offense, as he earned every yard against a defense that allowed under 5 first downs per game. Congratulations to the Razorbacks entire offensive linemen. You guys are the unsung MVP of the game.
1. Rashard Snow, RB/DE/ATH, Florida City Razorbacks (115lbs.)
Snow delivered over 5 "Big Plays" meaning 15 plus yards or greater against arguably the top defense in South Florida. The versatile athlete scored on offense and defense, powering his way into the end zone inside the 5 yard line and returning a pick six at free safety, which was called back. His speed of the edge at defensive end forced the Rams offense to make quick throws and he wasn't tested at cornerback, when assigned to particular players.
2. Levy "LA" Miller, RB/LB, Palmetto Raiders (130lbs.)
Miller home-run speed and vision fueled the Raiders offense. He took one the distance for over 20 yards for a score. Miller finished with well over a 100 yards as he bent the corner several times against a well-respected defense. Miller recorded over ten tackles at linebacker and recorded the first three tackles of the game.
3. Bryant McCoy, RB, Tacolcy Red Raiders (115lbs.)
The Red Raiders "Little Big Man" was well worth admissions. He scored on two 60 plus yard scampers. McCoy was responsible for over 200 all purpose yards and two rushing touchdowns. His vision and running style is impressive. You have to go watch this kid during regionals.
4. Andrew Johnson, RB, Overtown Tornadoes (130lbs.)
The money team playmaker, gave the Tornadoes life after sprinting over 60 yards on a dive play. He would also line-up at slot receiver and contribute as well on several impressive catches. He totalled over 100 all purpose yards and also shined on defense.
5. Jon Delgado, RB/ATH, Tamiami Colts (130lbs.)
Delgado name was called so many times on offense, defense, and special teams,y you had no choice but to remember his name. He scored on offense and just made countless plays on defense and special teams. He's a scrappy player that loves to compete.
6. Zion Paret, QB, Tacolcy Red Raiders (115lbs.)
Paret arm talent was the best I observed among the six games. He threw exceptionally well and spreaded the wealth. It's going to be a challenge to slow down the Red Raiders with a balance offense at this level. He threw one touchdown and was pinpoint beyond ten yards.
7. Anton Clayton, QB, Goulds Rams (155lbs.)
Clayton dual threat ability, helped the Rams overcome the hurdle of the Giants stringy defense. He just did the little things right. The majority of his completions were on the run, as he gave his wide receivers a chance to make a play. He threw one touchdown which decided the outcome of the championship.
8. Xavier Irvin, WR, Overtown Tornadoes (130lbs.)
The Tornadoes didn't throw his way as often prior to games I've covered. But, when they did, Irvin didn't disappoint, as he made a fade route look effortless. Irvin recorded over 5 tackles on defense and nearly caught an interception.
9. Keandre Beard, WR, Tacolcy Red Raiders (115lbs.)
Beard clearly was a man among boys once the ball was released from the quarterback hands and it was just him and the defender. He scored on a eye-catching go route and separated from the Broncos secondary.
10. Jabari Lewis, RB, Florida City Razorbacks (115lbs.)
Lewis delivered several big gains on jet sweeps and took advantage of teammate Rashad Snow performance, taking a counter out of the wishbone the distance.
Lewis finished second on offense behind Snow for big plays.
11. Fermin Livingston, QB, Overtown Tornadoes (115lbs.)
12. Keandre Beard, WR, Tacolcy Red Raiders (115lbs.)
13. Michael Griffin, TE, Palmetto Raiders (130lbs.)
14. Sean Hill, QB, Tamiami Colts (130lbs.)
15. Stephen "Ching" Collie, QB, Tacolcy Red Raiders (130lbs.)
