Joyner, Riggs selected to Under Armour game

First, offensive lineman Brandon Linder and kicker Michael Palardy found out they were headed to San Antonio.

On Thursday morning, defensive back Cody Riggs and wide receiver/kick returner Lamarcus Joyner accepted an invitation to Tampa.

Riggs and Joyner became the latest players from the St. Thomas Aquinas football team to be invited to a national high school football All-Star game when the duo was selected to the 2010 Under Armour All-America game.

The game will take place Jan. 2 at 11 a.m. at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg and will be televised by ESPN.

They join Linder and Palardy, who earlier this month were invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio Jan. 9.

Riggs has six pass break-ups, an interception and three blocked kicks this season. And Joyner has 746 all-purpose yards and eight touchdowns, including three on kickoff returns, this season for the defending national champion Raiders.

Aquinas closes its regular season this weekend against Cypress Bay at home Friday at 8 p.m., before hosting Coral Springs at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20 in the Region 4-5A quarterfinals.
