The fans’ pick

WR/S Jaela Davis, Jr., Brooks DeBartolo

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

The two-sport star also is leading the flag football team on a successful run through the regular season. 

As the top receiver on offense and ball hawk on defense, Davis helped the Phoenix rebound from a 1-3 start with five straight wins. 

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). 

The PTP pick

WR/QB/CB Kayla Ludwig, So., Newsome: The leading scorer on the girls basketball team also has put up some impressive numbers in flag football. In four games two weeks ago, Ludwig had a combined 315 yards of offense (208 receiving, 107 passing) and six touchdowns. She also picked off a pass on defense.

Flag football: Casey Contreras named top player in Hillsborough

Published

on

Steinbrenner’s Casey Contreras had a knack for picking off opposing passers, so much that she was recognized as the top flag football player in Hillsborough County. 

The senior took home the Happy Home Goods Outstanding Flag Football Award in large part for recording a county record 40 interceptions in her career. It is the first time the Warriors had a player win the award. 

Contreras contributed in other ways, too. She served as a team mentor, particularly on the academic side. Her help is a big reason Steinbrenner is the four-time defending Class 2A academic state champions, an honor awarded to the team with the highest combined GPA.

Her leadership, loyalty and compassion played a role in a season filled with honors. 

In January, Contreras was the female winner of the Bill Minahan award, given annually to two student athletes who excel on and off the field.

Robinson quarterback Sydney Stout, who rewrote the record book as a passer while leading the program to its fifth straight state title, was named Miss Flag Football, the award given to the top overall player in the state by the Florida Dairy Farmers. 

After missing last season because of the coronavirus pandemic, the senior took over as the Knights’ starter this season and shattered the state records for yards (5,086), touchdown passes (111) and completion percentage (74).  

That prolific passing attack was a big reason Robinson went 22-0, outscoring foes by a combined 876-65 en route to their fifth straight state title in Class 1A and sixth overall. 

Stout beat out Newsome quarterback/defensive back Devyn Silvestri for the top honor. Silvestri, who led the Wolves to their first state title, was named the 2A player of the year. Newsome’s Justin Shive was named the top overall coach in the state.
