On Tuesday, ten football players from high schools in Coral Springs competed in the BCAA All-Star Game.
After a phenomenal season, offensive linemen Cantrell Weight, Stanley Issa, and Darly Myers represented Coral Springs High School. The Colts went 5-5 under first-year Head Coach Eddie Brown and scored at least 36 points in three of their victories.
Quarterback Corey Grant and wide receiver Jordan Ulysses competed from Coral Glades. In what was a major rebuilding year for the Jaguars, these two players were key sparks to the offense earlier in the year. The Jaguar’s only win came against J.P. Taravella with Mason Hall at quarterback, but they expect to compete for championships in the next few years.
Coral Springs Charter had three players selected for their outstanding performance in football: Jeovhany Cadet, Kevaughn Hinckson, and Jordan Woods. Cadet was known for his exceptional defense skills, while Hinckson was the team’s leading rusher, averaging nearly 100 yards per game. Woods played as a linebacker and was one of the key players in the defensive unit at CSC, helping the team win three games in the regular season and another victory in the postseason.
Tariq Qaiyim and Justin Giles were chosen from J.P. Taravella High School after the Trojans won a second consecutive game against Pompano Beach High School. Qaiyim was the team’s leading tackler with an average of 8.4 tackles per game, while Giles was one of their top receivers this season. He caught ten passes, totaling 210 yards and scoring a touchdown.
During the game, several cheerleaders from Coral Springs performed. Coral Springs High School cheerleaders were Amoya Davy and Rihanna Ramos-Aponte, while Isabel Pereira Cobo represented Coral Glades. CSC was represented by Izzy Trejo and Riley Saran, and Melanie Bierman and Donte McKay represented J.P. Taravella’s cheerleading squad.
