The fans’ pick

QB/S Devyn Silvestri, Jr., Newsome

Devyn Silvestri is a multi-sport athlete. She is Newsome’s top golfer and advanced to the regional tournament in the fall. 

But flag football is her true passion. 

Silvestri has been playing the sport since she was seven years old. Those years of experience have paid off. This past weekend she won the accuracy challenge at the Elite 11 quarterback challenge, which invited girls flag football players for the first time this year. 

As a quarterback and safety, she helped the Wolves overwhelm its foes the first week of the season. 

Silvestri accounted for a combined 22 touchdowns on offense and recorded a combined four interceptions on defense to lead Newsome to a 5-0 start (outscoring opponents by a combined 241-6).

Fans took notice. Silvestri received 52 percent of the votes (3,530) to beat out Hillsborough’s Layla West, who had more than 30 percent (2,091 votes). 

The PTP pick

QB Sydney Stout, Sr., Robinson: Threw for a combined 14 touchdowns to lead the Knights to three victories (by a combined 131-0) to start the season.

WR Jade Hickey, Sr., Newsome

A two-sport star, Jade Hickey splits her time playing club soccer for Tampa Dynamo and flag football at Newsome. 

Better still, she will continue to play both sports at Warner University. 

With Hickey’s college plans already secured, she has spent the spring becoming one of the Wolves’ most reliable receivers. 

This past week, she had a combined 12 receptions for 155 yards and four touchdowns in three games. 

Fans took notice. Hickey received 41 percent of the votes (2,325) to beat out Robinson’s Kate Robinson, who had more than 34 percent (1,955 votes).  (Photo courtesy of Mike Gallagher).

A starter on the girls basketball team, Jaela Davis played a key role in helping the program reach the state semifinals this season.

Two weeks ago, she compiled more than 150 yards receiving and three touchdowns on offense. Davis also recorded a combined three interceptions, including one that was returned for a score.

Fans took notice. Davis received 50 percent of the votes (4,880) to beat out Newsome’s Kayla Ludwig, who had 25 percent (2,443 votes).
