The PTP football offensive players of the week

The Prime Time pick

WR Agiye Hall, Sr., Bloomingdale

The game came down to the final play. The chance to complete a comeback was reduced to a few seconds. 

Tre Simmons eluded defenders before heaving the ball to the end zone. 

And there was Hall, determined to make the winning play. 

The Alabama commit got into prime post position before leaping to make a catch while three defenders converged on him. Moments later, the official threw both hands in the air, signaling a touchdown. 

Game over. The Bulls beat Tampa Bay Tech 25-22. 

Hall finished with 107 yards on eight catches, none bigger than the one he made at the end to help Bloomingdale remain undefeated. 

The fans’ pick

RB Joquez Smith, So., Jesuit

When Ricky Parks transferred to Gaither this offseason, Smith knew he would be the Tigers’ primary ball carrier. 

In three starts, Smith has proved he  is more than capable of handling the workload. He has  rushed for 331 yards, the fifth-highest total among area backs. 

Last week, Smith ran for 112 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Jesuit to a 25-14 come-from-behind win over Berkeley Prep. He did more than just carry the ball. Smith also is showing he is a dependable receiver with a season-high four catches for 32 yards. 

The fans thought highly of his performance. Smith had more than 44 percent of the votes (3,503) to finish ahead of Robinson’s Myron Thomas, who had more than 32 percent (2,562 votes).

Wiregrass Ranch’s Rocco Becht commits to Iowa State

Wiregrass Ranch quarterback Rocco Becht has committed to Iowa State.

The rising senior made the announcement on his Twitter page Friday afternoon. 

Becht, the son of former Jets and Buccaneers tight end Anthony Becht, is listed as a three-star prospect  by 247 Sports and had offers from 13 colleges. He is just the second recruit for the Cyclones in the 2022 class and the lone one from the area. 

Iowa State has done well landing locals. In fact, this marks the fifth straight recruiting class the Cyclones have secured at least commitment from an area player. 

Becht took over as Wiregrass Ranch’s starting quarterback in 2019. As a junior last season, he threw for 1,550 yards and 18 touchdowns and was named the offensive player of the year for the East Division of the Sunshine Athletic Conference.

Tony Livingston transfers to King

Published

Tony Livingston, a two-sport star who committed to Florida earlier this month, has transferred from Carrollwood Day to King. 

The rising senior will play football and basketball for the Lions. 

“We’re happy to have him for his last year,” said King basketball coach Chris Senoga-Zake, who previously coached at Carrollwood Day. “He’s grown a lot from the time I had him as a freshman and has been working hard this off season. I’m hoping we can change the culture at King and give him the opportunity to showcase his true talent on the court.”

Three weeks ago, Livingston became the first area player in the 2022 class to commit to the Gators. . 

Livingston (featured photo above courtesy of JJ Battle/Battle Tested Photography) is a 6-foot-6, 250 pound offensive tackle who is athletic enough to play tight end, too. The four-star recruit is rated as the 18th-best player in the state and 19-best offensive tackle in the nation in the 2022 class according to 247 Sports’ composite list.

Though Livingston’s primary sport is football, he also played a key role in helping Carrollwood Day’s basketball team win a district title and reach the Class 3A region semifinals. Earlier this month, Florida became the first school to extend offers to Livingston in both sports. 

He could end up playing both in college, much like his former Carrollwood Day teammate Mike Trigg plans to do at Southern California this coming fall.

Plant football coach Cyril Brockmeier has stepped down after one season, athletic director Lauren Otero said in an email. 

Brockmeier, a longtime assistant, had the unenviable task of replacing legendary coach Robert Weiner, who left in December of 2019 to become the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Toledo.

Brockmeier, who went 2-6, decided to step down due to personal responsibilities and professional obligations, Otero said in an email. The offseason workouts will continue, as scheduled, under the direction of assistant Hank Brown, who will serve as interim coach. 

The deadline for resumes is April 5, Otero said. The school plans to start interviewing candidates on April 7 with a second round of interviews the following day. 

A new coach will be announced April 12 during a players-only meeting, Otero said.
