Armwood alum Ryne Giddins gets the nod as starting defensive end for the first time as a redshirt sophomore. Andreas Shields, former Wharton standout, is listed as the starting tight end.
Mark Popek carries on the Plant City tradition of big, effective linemen and is listed as the starting left tackle.
Jerrell Young, proud Gibbs alum, is the starting free safety. Armando Sanchez, Northeast alum, is listed as the starting fullback. Sanchez won an Iron Bull award for last years performance on special teams and is such a versatile althlete that he is switching to fullback from linebacker.
Michael Walsh, a fifth year senior from Plant, returns as the long snapper.
Bobby Eveld, who led the Bulls to a victory over Miami on Thanksgiving weekend, is listed behind B.J. Daniels at quarterback. Eveld is a true sophomore from Jesuit. Joel Miller, from Wharton, will be the first slot receiver on the field in 3-wide sets.
JaQuez Jenkins of Lakewood, Terrence “T-Rex” Mitchell of Hillsborough, Julius Forte of Boca Ciega, and Claude Davis of Lakeland are all listed second team on the depth chart.
