Central Florida Got Game
Who's got game? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here are the athletes we recognized in November:
ARMWOOD -- FOOTBALL
The Hawks' defense gets a lot of attention, and rightly so. But sometimes lost in the discussion is the play of Jackson, a crucial part of an Armwood team considered one of the best in the nation. Case in point: Jackson's performance against Jefferson on Oct. 3. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior signal caller threw for five touchdowns and rushed for more than 100 yards and another score as the Hawks prevailed, 41-0. He could move to wide receiver or defensive back at the next level.
CAITLIN MCGRAW, JENNA DOERFLER
WINTER PARK -- GIRLS' TENNIS
TAMPA PREP -- GIRLS' SOCCER
Goodwin was instrumental in the Terps' Class 2A state championship run last season. The senior striker scored the winning goal as Tampa Prep defeated American Heritage-Delray, 2-1, on penalty kicks in last year's state final. A four-year starter, Goodwin has committed to play for the University of Central Florida next season. She scored 28 goals and added 23 assists last year, earning first team All-Hillsborough honors from The Tampa Tribune.
LAKE HOWELL -- GIRLS' VOLLEYBALL
Johnson is one of the state's best players, a 6-foot-4 middle blocker who dominates the court with her length and athleticism. She is rated No. 14 in the Class of 2009 by PrepVolleyball.com and has committed to play volleyball for Cal. She earned All-State second team honors after racking up 348 kills and 162 blocks and leading the Silver Hawks to the Class 5A semifinals. Also a strong defensive presence on the basketball court, Johnson transferred into Lake Howell from Lyman as a junior.
