LAKE BUENA VISTA - Willie Young and his Florida teammates spent most of the night visiting with Louisiana quarterbacks up close as Florida routed Louisiana, 27-0 in the inaugural All-Star Game at Disney's Wild World of Sports Complex.
Young, from Palm Beach Gardens, was named defensive most valuable player and Riley Bell of Tallahassee Leon won the offensive award for his two touchdown passes.
After a 90-minute delay because of lightning and a sloppy first quarter, Florida got on the board early in the second when Travis Roland of Daytona Beach Mainland returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown. Neither team scored the rest of the first half, but Florida forced four fumbles.
In the third Bell found Chris Zellner of Sarasota Booker over the middle to make it 14-0. That was when things got ugly and a bench-clearing brawl ensued resulting in the ejection of four players. Two more were later tossed.
Bell opened the fourth quarter with a 36-yard strike to Greg Carr of Citra North Marion, and kicker Gary Cismesia of Bradenton Lakewood Ranch hit the second of his two field goals to close the scoring.
