Gabriel Angulo, East Bay 2016 QB – Ian Kuykendall will enter the spring season as the starter for the East Bay Indians; 465 rushing yards and 306 passing yards. Gabriel Angulo is not going to just let Mr. Kuykendall have the starting spot. Click on the competition and watch the level rise. Angulo is a shade under 6 foot and throws a pretty ball. Can he run the offense? We think so. Can he beat the teams in his district? With some experience and confidence, we think so. The reality of the situation is, Angulo is going into a dog fight with the returning starter who is not going to give up his seat.
The 1K Rusher?
Sheldon Green, Brandon 2017 RB – Led the team in rushing last season as a sophomore with 250 yards. Bigger goals this year. A year under his belt with experience under the helmet, Green could likely rush for 1,000 yards in 2015. He will need more carries and an aggressive offensive line, but he has enough tools to reach the 1K mark for the season.
County Leading Receiver?
Dylan Hartley, Fivay 2016 WR – 6th on the team in yards and receptions last year with 3 catches and 36 yards. Not too convincing of a state line to think this kid could even be in the running to be the top dog in Pasco. 3 of Fivay’s top 6 receivers were seniors. Losing leading receiver Trent Soto will hurt, but provides an opportunity for Hartley to be the top dog out the receiving crew at Fivay.
The TD Producer?
Zach Lehman, Clearwater 2016 WR – In order for Lehman to possibly lead the county in TD receptions, his QB Garrison Bryant will need to stay healthy. You may not know the name, but Lehman can go. The junior receiver has wheels and catches the ball with the best of them. Expect him to be the primary target this season for Bryant. Daniel Davis, Tarpon Springs led Pinellas County in receiving TDs last season with 14. That’s a good goal for Lehman for 2015. If he can catch 14 TDs, he has a good chance of being Tops in the category for Pinellas County.
