Bucs bask in success

By KEITH NIEBUHR, Times Staff Writer
Published September 25, 2005

Berkeley Prep wanted respect.

Now the Bucs are likely to get some.

With a 19-13 win Friday night over Tampa Catholic, which is one classification higher, Berkeley Prep improved to 3-1. For those keeping score at home, the Bucs have just two regular-season losses since the start of the 2003 season.

"This was a big win for the kids, especially the seniors," Berkeley Prep coach Frank Sullivan said. "They read the paper a lot more than the coaches do and they're on the Internet. They definitely felt a little slighted."

Andrew McAdams was the star.

The senior, a four-year starter who plays a number of positions, had a performance he isn't likely to forget. The final tally: one touchdown reception, one TD run, two field goals, one PAT and two interceptions.

"He has played big for us all four years and he keeps getting better every week," Sullivan said.

Berkeley Prep's defense also deserves credit.

It forced five turnovers.

It seems as if every time Javier Arenas touches the ball, something good happens for Robinson. The defensive back/wide receiver/punt returner scored four touchdowns Friday night in a 54-0 win over Leto. They came on a fumble recovery, an end around, a reception and a punt return. He now has four scores on punt returns this season, and had two others in a preseason game.

"He makes some great moves, sets his blocks up well and he has got an initial burst of speed," Knights coach Mike DePue said. "He's a Division I prospect."

Middleton linebacker A.J. Jones, who lists his favorites as Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Ohio State and Southern Cal, said he will visit Alabama next month.

Robinson wide receiver Darrell Stevens has added a scholarship offer from Kentucky to go with the one he has from Wake Forest.
