Ours vs. Theirs – Area Receiving Leaders

We continue with our look at the area leaders and how they rank in the Top 50 around the state amongst all classifications through the first six weeks of the season. In this section, we look at the receiving leaders.

#7-Matthew Landers, Admiral Farragut (Jr.)
The Blue Jackets sputtered out of the gate in week one, but things are looking much better now as they’ve scored 40-points twice, plus 60 and 70-pt totals in the games since then. The 6-5/180 receiving target has caught 18 passes for 614 yards (34.1 per catch) and nine touchdowns.

#12-Kee Whetzel, Countryside (Sr.)
The key to success–has been Kee for the Cougars this season. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound target has caught 30 passes for 518 yards (17.3 per catch) and seven touchdowns for the 5-1 squad.

#13-Brett Bitter, Steinbrenner (Jr.)
The Warriors are off to the best start in school history and it’s contributions from players such as this 6-foot-2, 165-pound target who’s caught 26 passes for 513 yards–good for 19.7 per catch–and 2 TD’s.

#14-Dylan Hartley, Fivay (Sr.)
The Falcons can put up points in a hurry and Hartley’s the main target. The 6-foot, 180-pound receiver has 22 receptions for 503 yards (22.9 avg) and three touchdowns through five games this season.

#15-RB Marlow, Lakeland Christian (Sr.)
The Vikings are #2 in Class 3A and this young man has factored all season for them. The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder has caught 20 passes for 502 yards good for 25 yards per catch and seven touchdowns for his undefeated squad.

#19-Kavious Price, Manatee (Sr.)
Manatee’s on a roller-coaster ride of sorts through the first five games of the season, but Price’s contributions are good enough to crack the Top 20 statewide. The 5-foot-7, 160-pounder has caught 28 passes for 463 yards and 4TD’s.

#20-Jake Hudson, Sickles (Sr.)
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder has helped the Gryphons reach an undefeated record catching 20 passes for 462 yards–good for 23.1 per catch–and has seven touchdowns to his credit on the season.

#24-Adrian Adams, Lakewood (Sr.)
The Spartans have quietly put together a good season in South Pinellas and this 5-11/170 target has caught 21 passes for 450 yards–good for 21.4 yards per catch–and has five touchdowns to his credit as well.

#26-Quandale Inmon, Gibbs (Jr.)
The Gladiators have leaned on DJ Johnson’s arm and legs, but Inmon (5-foot-10, 160-pounds) has done his part as an option–catching 18 passes for 445 yards–that’s good for 24.7 yards per catch–and 3 TD’s.

#34-Jordan Keijers, Bloomingdale (Sr.)
The Bulls have faced some adversity coming off a 9-2 season last year, but Keijers (6-0/150) has helped B’Dale any way he can. Jordan has caught 18 passes for 415 yards and three touchdowns thus far in 2015.

#35-Emanuel Scott, Brooksville-Central (Sr.)
A couple of nice options on offense to help the cause for the Bears this year–this 6-foot, 175-pounder has caught 21 passes for 412 yards and four touchdowns.

#36-Graham Hoffman, Calvary Christian (Jr.)
Although he has yet to record a touchdown, Hoffman’s made nice work of the season teaming with his QB to catch 23 passes for 411 yards for the Warriors. Good frame at 6-1/165 for this young man as well.

#41-Isaac Johnson, Zephyrhills Christian (Sr.)
We haven’t heard much from ZCA since this summer, but this 6-foot-3/175-pound target is a legit threat for someone at the next level. Johnson’s caught 26 passes for 403 yards and 2TD’s this season.

#42-Reggie Carter, Manatee (Sr.)
Big things starting to happen for this 5-foot-11, 163-pound target for the ‘Canes. So far through the first five games for Manatee, Carter’s caught 28 passes for 401 yards and a touchdown.
