IMG/Madden 7on7: All-Tourney Defense

A look at the top 2013 performers on defense at the IMG/Madden 7on7 West Regional Qualifier in SoCal...

Tahaan Goodman
Safety, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.)
Anchored the B2G secondary and continued to shine this spring with a solid performance all weekend.

 Goodman at IMG 7on7:

Su'a Cravens
Safety, Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta
Teams tried to avoid him but he closes so quickly on the ball and changes the focus of opposing offenses.  Also starred offensively.

Cravens at IMG 7on7:

Uaea Masina
Linebacker, Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton
Was probably the top performer at linebacker, the second time this spring that's been the case.

Keishawn Bierra
Linebacker, Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne
On a team with a loaded secondary, Bierra teamed with Talifero to shut down the opposing team's short passing game.

Denzel Talifero
Linebacker, Duarte (Calif.)
Constantly was disrupting the shorter throws in games against B2G.


Alani Latu
Linebacker, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.)
While brother Viliami stood out on Sunday, the only day he came, Alani was a two-day star and a big reason I.E. Elite went unbeaten on Day One.

Daquawn Brown
Cornerback, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey
Really did it all for B2G, playing corner, safety and even catching a pair of touchdown passes.

Brown at IMG 7on7:

Delvin Batiste
Cornerback, Upland (Calif.)
Was probably the top performer at corner on the first day of action, with three picks in the first two games.

Batiste at IMG 7on7:

Devin Holiday, San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills
Cornerback, San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills
His coaches said that he was arguably B2G Five-Star's MVP during the tournament.

Charles Okonkwo
Cornerback, Fontana (Calif.) Summit
Bounced back from a slow start with a stellar showing on Day Two in the Frat Boyz march to the semifinals.

Chris Hawkins
Cornerback, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.)
At this point, Hawkins just constantly makes plays and shuts down his side of the field.  Probably has been the best corner out West this spring.
