Nine County Gridders Feted by FACA District 8

BROOKSVILLE –
On Monday night at Nature Coast Technical, the Sharks filled a huge void.
For the first time its five-year existence, the Sharks finally had some representatives voted on to annual Florida Athletic Coaches Association (FACA) District 8 football meeting.
The 10th ranked Sharks, who tied the school record with their eighth straight win last Friday against Hernando, saw four players and a coach named to FACA Senior All-Star team.
Springstead, which improved to 6-2 with a win Friday over Ridgewood, was a stride behind with four selections.
The 29-member schools that comprise District 8 could not decide on a District Most Valuable Player, settling instead on a co-MVPs.
Groveland-South Lake’s mammoth offensive tackle, Jon Harrison (6-foot-4, 290 pounds, 3.90 grade point average) and East Ridge’s elusive tailback Jeremy Wright (202 attempts, 2,038 yards, 19 touchdowns) tied for top honors. The assembled coaches voted three times, but could not unlock the tie between the duo.
As District 8 co-MVPs, both Lake County players have the inside track on berths in the North/South Senior All-Star Game to be played Dec. 23 at Bryant Stadium in Lakeland.
Any of the 24 senior FACA District 8 selections, however, may be selected to play in the all-star contest representing the expansive five-county (Hernando, Pasco, Citrus, Lake, Sumter), 29-member school district.
On Monday night, 16 schools were represented (only attending FACA member head coaches or a representative could nominate or vote for players) including: Groveland-South Lake, Clermont-East Ridge, Wildwood, The Villages, Bushnell-South Sumter, Land O’Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills, Spring Hill-Springstead, Brooksville-Nature Coast, Brooksville-Central, Crystal River, NPR-River Ridge, Hudson, Shady Hills-Bishop McLaughlin Catholic and Brooksville-Hernando.
North Suncoast coaching no shows included: Brooksville-Hernando Christian Academy, Lecanto, New Port Richey-Ridgewood, Dade City-Pasco, Inverness-Citrus, New Port Richey-Gulf, NPR-Mitchell, Leesburg, Eustis, Tavares, Mount Dora, Umatilla and Mount Dora Bible.
Participating coaches voted on two all-star squads beginning with the Senior All-District Team.
Another All-District squad was selected including all underclassmen. But in that balloting no non-senior players cracked that select group.
Each all-star squad had 24 allotted positions (including 11 players on offense, 11 on defense, plus one place kicker and one punter) as only the top vote getters were honored.
Also, each classification selected a Player of the Year and a corresponding Coach of the Year.

Sharks rule

The Sharks, who had never before had a player voted on to the FACA District 8 Senior All-Star team, was paced by Class 3A’s Coach of the Year, Jamie Joyner, 3A’s Player of the Year Michael Fields, along with Chad Dampier, D.J. Williams and Britt Langley.
What did it mean for Joyner to receive COY?
“It’s humbling,” explained the fifth-year skipper. “Especially when you look around and see the class that’s in the room. It’s really an honor. What this really means is I have a great coaching staff that works its tail off and we have players that not only put in the effort, but also perform as well. The real credit belongs to the assistant coaches and players.”
Springstead High’s 11th-year Head Coach Bill Vonada agreed with Joyner’s selection?
“Jamie has done a real good job building the program there.”
On Dampier, “He’s kinda been a behind the scenes guy,” described Joyner of his 6-foot-1, 250-pound offensive guard. “He’s done everything we’ve asked to prepare for football season. Last year, he was kinda our sixth man up front. He was the only guy with any real experience coming in. It’s great to see him get his time to lead.”
Three members of Shark defense highlighted the squad.
D.J. Williams enters his ninth game with 51 tackles, including seven for a loss, plus 10 hurries.
On D.J. Williams, “As a sophomore he played great,” commented Joyner. “Then he was hurt for most of his junior year. He finally got back on track this year. He’s a tremendous leader. He loves to do all the dirty work that linemen do. He’s the guy that keeps blockers off our linebackers, so they can make plays. It’s good to see the coaches show some respect for one of our guys in the trenches.”
Langley journeys to South Lake this week behind a team-best 93 tackles, two sacks and five hurries.
On Langley, “Michael (Fields) is the face our defense. (Alfredo) Lindo is our emotional leader. D.J (Williams) is the personality, but Tadd (Govedich) and Britt (Langley) are our quiet assassins. I mean, you never see them and then wham they make the tackle.
“When was the last time you saw a 100-meter champ lead any team in tackles? That’s Britt,” exclaimed Joyner. “Every year, he’s elevated his game. This year, he put the defense on his back. He’s one determined young man.”
Fields enters the South Lake game with 32 tackles, five passes defended and three interceptions. He’s returned two fumbles and one interception for touchdowns this season.
On Fields, “He’s better than he was during his All-State year (when he registered 10 INTs),” said Joyner. “Nobody knew about him last year. This year, no one is throwing toward him. He’s a ball hawk back there at safety. He’s the face of our defense. What’s overlooked is how physical he can be.
“He’s a tremendous athlete,” added Joyner. “If we were a passing team, I’d have no problems throwing the ball 10-12 times his way during the game. He’s a tremendous competitor.”

Eagles: four picks

Springstead was represented by wide receiver Ben Noury and three members from Mike Garofano’s defensive unit: lineman Stan Miele, linebacker Nate Schafer and safety Domnique Roberson.
Noury collected 29 passes for 470 yards and three TDs, besides rushing for 320 yards and adding three scores.
On Noury, “He’s a four-year starter,” described Vonada. “He caught our eye at a very young age. He does whatever we ask him to do, no hesitation. This year, he’s become more of a leader. Definitely, his strength is his versatility. What I like most is he is so cool under pressure. And when the game’s on the line, he wants the ball.”
The 6-foot-2, 255-pound Miele has collected 53 tackles, two sacks and caused two fumbles.
On Miele, “His strength is his motor,” smiled Vonada. “It’s always going. We throw the word relentless a lot when we describe Miele. If he starts left, there’s no hesitation for him to finish on right and be in on the hit. If he makes a mistake, he does not succumb to that mistake.”
Schafer leads the Eagles with 102 tackles, 2½ sacks and two hurries.
On Schafer, “He’s one of those guys that has great ability,” pointed out Vonada. “Now, we’ve complimented him with some more players. He’s a guy who arrives game ready. He recognizes things a lot better this year because of his devotion to film study.”
Roberson has swiped three passes, caused two fumbles and scored twice on defense.
On Roberson, “First and foremost, he’s a playmaker on defense,” described Vonada. “He’s a throwback to how we used to prepare for games. He comes into games totally focused. He’s a visualization guy. And most importantly, he’s a young man with character. We’re fortunate to have a lot of characters guys this year.”
