Pinellas County All-Star Game Photo Gallery

Thursday night was the Pinellas County All-Star game and was there for all the action. We had a chance to talk with a number of players so check back for interviews, but in the mean time enjoy this free photo gallery.

The 2008 Pinellas County All-Star classic was played Thursday night at Clearwater High School with the South winning 48-20 in a lopsided contest.

The South marched down the field and struck first with a touchdown run by Dixie Hollin's QB Josh Brown off the veer. The North countered on the next drive capped with a TD run by Countryside's Dawrence Roberts. It looked like it was going to be a high scoring affair, but from that point on it was all the South.

On the ensuing drive Brown found Boca Ciega's Darrian skinner for a 62 yard score . Skinner than scored a 2nd td when he caught a pass from Admiral Farragut's A.J. Augustine, broke a tackle and raced for a 75-yard score his second of the night in route to being named the overall MVP. Dixie Hollin's TE Gerard Akins and Northeast's Jaruez Wynn also scored for the South.

Boca Ciega's Julius Forte also found the end zone for the south and took defensive MVP honors after getting 2 sacks, blocking a punt and returning it for a TD. Forte and St. Pete's Tajay Brown helped key a defense that gave the North problems all night.

Indian Rocks Christian's Lou Mason ran for a score and Tarpon Springs' Bobby Vavlas caught a TD pass from teammate Danny Reyes for the North side late in the game. This year the South coached by St. Pete's Coach Joe Fabrizo, played the game like it really meant something, and it showed on the field.
