Below is a list of the 2012 Tampa Bay college commits that played in the 2011 FHSAA football championship games. Let’s see how they performed.
Matt Jones (Florida), RB: 15 carries, 46 yards; 3 rec., 119 yards, 1 TD; 161 All purpose yards
I must admit, when Armwood needed a play, Matt Jones came through. Credit to Central, they defended the run well, but Jones looked great catching and running with the ball.
Javonte Sneed (South Alabama), WR: 1/1 passing, 19 yards, 1 TD; 1 rec, -1 yards
Eric Striker (Oklahoma), OLB: 8 solo tackles, 12 total, 2 sacks
Striker was outstanding. What the numbers do not show is how many tackles he set up for his teammates. Often, the Miami Central ball carries back tracked or changed directions when they saw Striker, setting up clean hits for other Hawk defenders. He also had several QB hurries. The Armwood career sack leader ended his senior year with one of his most memorable performances and the game sealing sack.
Sheldon Lewinson (Wake Forest), DT: 3 solo tackles, 4 total, 1 TFL,
Jarvis McCall (South Florida), CB: 1 solo tackle, 1 INT for TD (56 yards)
Cameron Dees (Marshall), Cody Waldrop (South Carolina): Offensive Lineman, no stats provided.
Drew Madhu (Stanford), S: 2 solo tackles
Antonio Crawford (Georgia Tech), CB: 10 carries, 54 yards; 1 KOR, 9 yards; 2 solo tackles
Tracy Howard of Miramar is a national prospect and from what I am told, his body of work is very impressive. But, in my humble opinion, Antonio Crawford was very very good. I will hold my comparison to Howard, but I will say that Crawford made some BCS plays. He had 2 pass breakups that prevented Miramar TDs and another big tackle sniffing out a receiver screen.
Rayshawn Jenkins (Miami), ATH: 6 carries, 22 yards; 4 rec., 24 yards; 1 solo tackle, 2 total
