Power Ranking of the Top 10 Brevard County High School Footballers 2021:
■ 1. Cocoa Tigers: The Tigers finished last season with the best record in the county, losing just one game in the regular season and missing the state championship by one for the second year in a row. Expect top players like Cedric Hawkins, OJ Ross and Jmariyae Robinson to have a big season, but acquiring former Holy Trinity quarterback Davin Wydner only makes this football powerhouse even more problematic on Friday evening.
■ 2. Raiders Rockledge: Rockledge lost a few key players last season, including quarterback Elias Allen and star athlete Raheim Sanders, but the culture coach Wayne Younger has instilled into his football schedule will keep them in the mix for the first time. square. The Raiders enter the season with some of the best talent in the county such as Rian Black.
■ 3. Viera Hawks: Viera Hawks is bursting with exceptional talent year after year under the guidance of head coach Dereck Smith. Well, this year they have arguably the best talent in Brevard County this coming season in Defensive Star Jamari Lyons. Senior quarterback CJ Simms and running back Judah Knight appeared to be a top combo in the spring game. If that turns into the regular season and beyond, we might be looking at a special season for the Viera Hawks.
■ 4. Pirates of Palm Bay: This ranking will surprise people but not those who watched Palm Bay football last season. Even with all the talent on the roster, the Pirates really didn’t have a real identity. Which led to a change of coach and now Palm Bay will enter the season under the guidance of new head coach Jake Owens. It looks like the players bought into Coach Owen’s vision pretty quickly as they dominated their Spring Jamboree game.
■ 5. Eau Gallie Commodores: The Commodores are arguably having their best season in program history after reaching the playoffs and claiming their first playoff victory. Training has a lot to do with a team’s success and Coach Sands has certainly changed the Eau Gallie schedule, but you might see a slight dip just from a plethora of elite talent from the previous season. went to play the next level. Eau Gallie is always talented, but losing plenty of impact players is something you can’t ignore.
■ 6. Bayside Bear: Coach Broomfield had a phenomenal season last year having recorded Bayside’s longest consecutive winning streak since 2014 and securing his first playoff win since 2010. I expect the Bears to continue to grow. improving from their previous season 4-6 with all the versatility on both sides of the ball. The Bears will go as far as their defense takes them as they allowed the opposing team plenty of points last year.
■ 7. Melbourne Bulldogs: After the Bulldogs ended the 2020 season with a disappointing 3-6 season, Melbourne made a change by appointing David Kintigh as the new head coach. The talent is there, it’s just a matter of how the defensive side of the ball holds up and how quickly Kintigh can get his players to buy into the system.
■ 8. Tigers of the Holy Trinity: Holy Trinity finished their season above .500 last year under head coach Nate Hooks. The Tigers have already faced challenges regarding their football schedule given they barely had 20 players across the roster last season. To add to their player shortage, their former 3-star pro-style quarterback Davin Wydner transferred to Cocoa to conclude his high school career. The coming season could be tough with the amount of young talent and new faces.
■ 9. Astronaut War Eagles: This ranking seems considerably low after the impressive season of Coach Worden and the War Eagles last year. Space Coast 2020 Player of the Year Abreon Torres graduated, Torres played a major role in their success last season and when you lose a player like that it can be difficult to regain your identity after a season of rush. spectacular as they experienced in 2020. I expect quarterback Antonio Caito to have a good season and keep the War Eagles competitive.
■ 10. Heritage panthers: Heritage ended the season with an uneventful 1-7 regular season in 2020. Much of that was down to having arguably the youngest team on the Space Coast. The Panthers will only get better with experience and chemistry with this young team led by second-year quarterback Joseph Tenta. The Space Coast is full of talent, in terms of experience when you compare them to Heritage, so I expect them to make a significant leap after another season under the belt of this young core.
