Justin Becker, Clearwater 4.

Matt Brown, Seminole An all-purpose dynamo, Brown's primary position is linebacker. But he excels on special teams as a returner and is considered one of the most elusive coverage guys in the county. Blocking him in the open field is frustrating as he darts, ducks and zigzags past blockers to tackle the ballcarrier.
