Winter Haven has been the model of consistency in Polk County since Charlie Tate took over in 2005. Eight seasons winning 8 or more games and 10 playoff appearances. Winter Haven prides themselves on a structured offense and gritty defense. The secondary is traditionally a strength of the team. Saturated with talent, speed and ability.
The captain of the Blue Devil defensive backs appears to be rising senior Tim Lowery. Standing around 5 foot 10 inches and 160 pounds, Tim shows plenty of ability.
What we like about Mr. Lowery: Balance, Reactive ability, Man to man coverage, awareness, and physicality. Tim has played several different position well for the Blue Devils. In the film below (2017 spring game clips) he lines up at the safety position and active in run support. Rarely takes a bad angle to the football and shosw good ball skills.
