SunStateFootball All-State Team presents the all classification, all-state team for the 2009 season. Congratulations to our first and second team performers.


Quentin Williams, Tampa Jefferson

The junior led Jefferson to the state semi-finals in 3A while throwing for 3,258 yards and 35 TDs. He added over 500 yards on the ground for the Dragons.

SECOND TEAM: Jeffrey Godfrey, Miami Central


Marcus Shaw, Desoto County

The senior led the state in rushing for the second year in a row as he amassed 2,555 yards(10.7 average) and 29 TDs. Shaw is committed to play at South Florida.

Chevelle Buie, Cocoa

Buie won his second state title in a row as he led the Tiger's with 1,678 rushing yards and 22 TDs. His electrifying speed was on full display against Glades Central in the title game.

SECOND TEAM: Mike Bellamy, Charlotte and Jakhari Gore, Columbus


Tommy Shuler, Miami Springs

Shuler hauled in 73 balls for 1,216 yards in just 10 games playing in 6A Dade. The 5'8 junior sparkplug had eight games of 99+ yards receiving.

Greg Dent, Glades Central

Dent was spectacular for Glades Central and appears to be following in a long line of Raider greats that includes Santonio Holmes, Deonte Thompson, Travis Benjamin, and Rantavious Wooten. He hauled in 54 passes for 1,387 yards with 14 TDs.

SECOND TEAM: Samuel Watkins, South Fort Myers and Andre Davis, Jefferson


Nick O'Leary, Dwyer

O'Leary is the complete package of pass catching and blocking, the 6'4 junior had a dominant state title game and was consistent all season. He will be one of the most coveted players in the state next year.

SECOND TEAM: Gerald Christian, Dwyer


Brandon Linder, St. Thomas, Chaz Green, Tampa Catholic, Ian Silberman, Fleming Island, Ronald Patrick, Cocoa, Jonathan Feliciano, Western

Linder, Green, and Silberman are three of the most sought after linemen in the country and all played like it. Patrick once again led Cocoa's stout rushing attack and Feliciano built on an impressive junior campaign.

SECOND TEAM: Shane McDermott, Palm Beach Central, Tony Posada, Plant, Marcus Jackson, Vero Beach, Tyler Moore, Countryside, Brian O'Leary, Venice


Darrin Kitchens, Homestead

The senior finally found a home on the field and it was rushing the passer. He registered 19 sacks to lead Dade County.

Ra'Shawde Myers, Cocoa

Myers continued to wreak havoc in the backfield with a startling first step and terrific pursuit. He is committed to play at Colorado State.

Louis Nix, Raines

Nix has moments when he is unblockable and can turn it up a notch at any time. His explosive first step coupled with great strength are calling cards that should pay off down the road.

Darious Cummings, Astronaut

The senior FSU commit had another brilliant campaign despite consistently facing added attention. Cummings is versatile enough to play inside or outside at the next level.

SECOND TEAM:James Wilder, Plant and Corey Lemonier, Hialeah, Sean Watson, Rutherford, Tim Jernigan, Columbia


Demetre Baker, Orange Park

Baker was a two way stand-out where he registered over 100 tackles and 1,000 yards rushing. The Georgia commit is one the of the top all around athletes in the state.

Mike Mirabella, Plant

Mirabella probably found the football more than any other player in the state, he is a flat tackling machine. He will graduate with three state titles in four years.

Christian Jones, Lake Howell

Jones made plays sideline to sideline and finsihed as one of Central Florida's best ever LBs despite playing on a less than stellar team. Jones is still being heavily pursued on the recruiting trail.

SECOND TEAM: Cullen Thompson, Arnold, Jamaal Bass, Miramar, Serderius Bryant, Seminole


Dallas Crawford, South Ft. Myers

Crawford recorded 10 interceptions and 43 stops from his safety position. He also threw for over 2,500 yards as a QB in leading the Wolfpack to a 10-2 season.

Rashad Knight, Trinity Christian

Knight continued to be a physical presence in the defensive backfield and he also picked off six passes. He is another player that made plays on both sides of the ball.

Ricardo Allen, Mainland

Allen is pure CB, but played some safety so he would be more involved in the game. Allen can flat cover a lot of ground and is not afraid to mix it up against the run. He is committed to Purdue.

Jamarious Boatwright, Largo

Largo's rangy play-maker had eight interceptions while playing some WR on offense.

SECOND TEAM: Keion Payne, St. Thomas, Cody Riggs, St. Thomas, Jaylen Watkins, Cape Coral, Lo Wood, Apopka


Michael Palardy, St. Thomas

The talented Tennessee commit does it all, he kicks it in the endzone on kickoffs, is consistent on field goals, and booms punts.

SECOND TEAM; Chris Veron, Forest
