Florida All Star game


Nov 29, 2011
Jackson’s De’Andre Jasper had six catches for 104 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including a 29-yard touchdown grab beating a double team with 3:30 to play leading the Miami-Dade All-Stars over the South Florida All-Stars 31-21 at Traz Powell Stadium Friday night in the Tournament of Champions Nike All-Star Game.

That performance earned Jasper the game MVP award edging out Booker T. Washington’s Kevon Caffey who was all over the field defensively and had a pair of blocked punts.

In the past, the game featured only players from Miami-Dade and Broward County, but event founder Wesley Frater wanted to open it up to players from all over the state to compete against the Miami-Dade All-Stars. This year, the South Florida All-Star team consisted of players from Broward, Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast. Frater plans on opening it up to the rest of the state next year.

“It was always my vision to open it up to the rest of the state to compete against Miami-Dade,â€￾ Frater said. “We got kids from Broward to the Treasure Coast. I want it to be open to the entire state.â€￾

Even with more counties involved, it wasn’t enough for the South Florida All-Stars to knock off the Miami-Dade All-Stars.

Miami-Dade opened up strong behind a blocked punt by Varela’s Jordan Armstrong a minute into the game. Miami-Dade converted off the blocked punt on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Northwestern’s E.J. Hilliard to Jasper for a 7-0 lead.

Then Caffey blocked a punt on the next possession. Miami-Dade took over at the South Florida All-Star’s one-yard line. South Dade’s Torry Clayton punched it in for 14-0 lead. Clayton stuck again on a 60-yard touchdown run, breaking a couple of tackles for the big score and a 21-0 lead with 6:15 to play in the first half. Clayton finished with six carries for 65 yards.

South Florida finally got on the board on a seven-yard touchdown run by Jupiter Christian’s Kedric Bostic. Things got interesting though in the final seven minutes. Ely’s Darren Allen hit University School’s Macgarrett Kings for a 21-yard touchdown on a wide receiver pass cutting the lead to 21-14. Miami-Dade came right back though with a 29-yard field goal following an onside kick attempt by South Florida.

However, South Florida scored again with 4:35 to play cutting the lead to 24-21 when Allen caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from Bostic. Jasper returned the ensuing kickoff 58 yards setting up his game clinching touchdown.
