ORLANDO - Can you say upset?

Tallahassee Lincoln can as they pulled the ultimate surprise on Saturday and knocked off previously unbeaten and nationally-rated Seffner Armwood, 17-14.

In a game that many had the Hawks favored by as many three touchdowns never turned out that way!

Lincoln finally got on the board with 7:57 when Javorius Allen returned a blocked field goal 56 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

The Hawks tied the game with 4:58 left in the first half when junior Matt Jones took it in from the 2.

Carlos Gaston gives Lincoln its first lead of the game when he stroked it through from 37 yards with :4 left.

* Highly recruited junior RB Matt Jones starts out with a short run.

* Kyle Wilcox (5-10, 205, FB) looks impressive with a short run.

* In the early going, Joshua Grady and Armwood are doing what they want.

* Sophomore receiver Ronnie Thomas is taken from the field on a stretcher. We will keep you updated.

* While Lincoln has done nothing on offense, the Trojans are playing great defense through the first quarter and keeping the high powered Armwood offense out of the endzone.

* Junior quarterback Ronald Butler (6-2, 185) picks up the Trojans first 1st down of the game with 11:34 left in the first half.

* Jones and Armwood looking to respond.

* Senior Harvelo Buie continues to make plays.

* Ronald Butler picks up another first down for the Trojans as they reach Armwood's 32.

5A FINAL: St. Thomas 29, Plant 7

ORLANDO - The St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders parlayed an outstanding defense with tremendous offensive plays to win the 5A state title, 29-7 over defending state champion Tampa Plant at the Citrus Bowl.

The Raiders (15-0), who failed to make it to title game last year, more than made up for it with a solid effort against a quality Plant (12-3) team.

The Raiders got on the board first, using a big play to set up a field by Nolan Bieck from 28 yards out at 8:16 mark of the first quarter.

Bieck once again game the Raiders a second score with :36 seconds left in the first quarter when he converted from 31 yards out.

The Panthers took the lead with 7:33 when James Wilder Jr., bulled his way into the endzone from 8 yards out.

St. Thomas took the lead back with 1:31 left in the half on a 31-yard pass from Jake Rudock to FSU-commit Rashad Greene, who made a tremendous catch.

The Raiders extended the lead to 20-7 when Fred Coppett took off 92 yards with :19 left in the first half. It was after the Panthers stopped the clock for a timeout.

Bieck connected from 37 yards out to extend the Raiders lead 23-7 with 1:09 left in the third quarter.

The Raiders moved out to a 29-7 lead with 7:04 left in the game when Greene raced 64 yards with a Rudock pass.

* St. Thomas won the toss and will defer to the second half.

* Plant makes a mistake by fielding a kickoff out of bounds deep in their own territory and then have penalty that backs them up to the 8.

* FIRST MENTION: James Wilder is big and strong and talented. He is stopped short of a first down.

* Jake Rudock to Phil Dorsett for 42 yards and a first and goal at the 9.

* Plant's defense holds and forces a field goal.

* Alabama bound QB Philip Ely and FSU bound RB James Wilder Jr. run the offensive show for the Panthers.

* St. Thomas senior LB Michael Paen is a big play kid.

* People are still waiting for Wilder to bust that big one. The Raiders have note yielded a 100-yard rusher this year.

* Big penalty against the Raiders will keep the drive going. Two plays, 30 penalty yards against STA.

* Ely wasn't suppose to play because of an injury, but looks plenty mobile and agile so far.

* Grant Van Aman misses a 30 yard field goal. You don't get a lot of chances against a team like St. Thomas!

* Fred Coppett takes off for 64 yards to the 9 and a first down.

* Plant's defense has let up two long plays, but has been tough in the red zone. They force another field goal attempt.

* St. Thomas making a lot of uncharacteristic mistakes.

* Plant gets a long kick return and start in St. Thomas territory. The Raiders are living on the edge, so far.

* Cole Champion is a stud! Comes up with a huge play for the Raiders - on Mr, Wilder!

* Rudock (Iowa) to Rashad Greene (FSU) for a big gain.

* Devin Zinkosky (6-3, 235, Sr.) sacks Rudock and senior Bobby Richardson comes up big on the next play.

* Plant holds the Raiders again, forcing a punt.

* Junior DL Jelani Hamilton (6-5, 220, Jr.) is a force and will be highly recruited next year.

* Ely and Austin Aikens team up for a44-yard gain into St. Thomas territory.

* Aiken to the 8 first and goal Plant.

* St. Thomas just wastes a 79 yard run by Jamal Wilson. Penalty!

* Plant up front is tough with Wilder, Michael Dvornik, Bobby Richardson.

* Rudock is NOT having one of his best games of the season.

* Plant has a 7-6 lead and they are trying to run clock with Wilder. Can't blame them.

* Hamilton with another big sack for the Raiders.

* Rudock to Greene for a crucial first down to the Plant 34.

* St. Thomas is still making too many mistakes.

* Champion and Paen have been trying to get more physical with a huge Wilder.

* Tevin Allen comes up with a TD saving breakup for St. Thomas, forcing the Panthers to punt.

* The Raiders com out running on the first two plays of the third quarter.

* Junior safety Drew Madhu (6-1, 190) makes a big play for the Panthers.

* While it may not be Rudock's night so far, keep in mind he has had 2 potential TD passes dropped!

* Ely comes out and immediately hits junior Daniel Casselli with a pass into Raider territory.

* A change of pace back for the Panthers is Calvin Mann (5-9, 175).

* Kenneth Hankerson makes a very crucial play for the Raiders.

* Wilder is on defense and making plays - like usual.

* Rudock scampers for 10 yards and a first down. If he starts running with success, it's another avenue the Panthers have to worry about.

* Plant is forcing Rudock into making throws he normally doesn't make.

* On third down and 12, Rudock runs and just picks up a first down at the Panthers' 14.

* Junior LB Mike Tate with a huge sack on Rudock.

* Yet another St. Thomas penalty keeps the Panthers' drive alive.

* Marcus Roberson comes up with a key interception in he endzone to stop a Plant drive.

* Hunter Coddington picks off Ely to end a drive.

* Junior Dami Ayoola has a rare carry. This is a player who will really make a difference for the Raiders.

* St. Thomas has 13 penalties tonight. I think when you look at the game back, many relly were not needed to be called.

* Senior Nick Sanders replaces Ely at QB and is sacked by senior Thomas Kelleher.

* Illinois-bound punter Justin Duvernois just nailed a 71-yarder, backing the Panthers up.

All-Tournament Team - Small Schools

Each year, Elite Scouting Services, the Miami Herald and WQAM (560 AM) Radio choose All-State teams based on he eight programs who advance to the state tournament.

Through the years, we have witnessed plenty of early round playoff games. This past weekend, at Orlando's Citrus Bowl, was probably the best early set of games we have ever watched.

Ocala Trinity Catholic and Davie University High School went into 3 overtimes before the Suns were stopped on the one yard line, attempting a two point conversion to win the game. In another great game, Glades Central scored the go ahead touchdown to make the game 13-7. On the extra point Cocoa blocked the kick which was huge. Cocoa ended up scoring a touchdown late to put themselves up 14-13 and winning for the 38th straight time.

On Friday, there were two great games as South Daytona Beach Warner Christian jumped up early on by a couple of touchdowns. Later on, it was the Kelvin Taylor Show as he finished the game with well over 200 yards and five touchdowns.

In the fourth outstanding game, Andrew Buie had a phenomenal game as Jacksonville Trinity Christian pulled the "upset" over American Heritage Delray. Buie finished the game with close to 200 yards and had a multi-touchdown game.

Here are the team rankings after the first weekend:
1. Cocoa
2. Glades Central
3. Ocala Trinity Catholic
4. Davie University School
5. Jacksonville Trinity Christian
6. Delray American Heritage
7. Glades Day
8. Daytona Warner Christian

Here is a look at the players who made a lasting impression from Week 1:
QB – Douglas Cook, University School:
Cook has improved more over the past two seasons than any other player in Broward County. He had over 60 passes in the state title game. His leaderships skills were quite impressive as the Suns were within a two point conversion from winning a first ever state title.

RB – Kelvin Taylor, Glades Day: Taylor had 44 rushes for over 250 yards and 5 touchdowns. This performance surpassed last years finals as Glades Day was trailing the entire day. Taylor's final touchdown put Glades Day up for good. He had one of the all time rushing performances in a finals game.

RB – Andrew Buie, Trinity Christian: This talented athlete rushed for over 240 yards and 4 touchdowns. His performance was equally as impressive after Trinity Christian pulled the upset over American Heritage Delray.

WR – Nicholas Kutcher, University School: This impressive athlete broke the State Championship record for receptions. His 14 catches was a big reason why the Suns had a chance to win. He is a Wes Welker type receiver who was Mr. Reliable for Douglas Cook.

WR – Davonte Allen, Glades Central: If there was any player who turned up the heat against Cocoa, it was this quality athletes. He has quickly become one of the best kept secrets this season. His play in the state title game elevated his stock to a BCS level.

WR – Macgarrett Kings, University School: Looking for someone to start talking about or the 2011 season? This is a player who has proven this season that he is indeed one of the top prospects on any field he steps on. He is one of the best all-around football players on his team.

OL – Chase Maddox, Jacksonville Trinity Christian: This versatile senior line prospect was easily one of the top players on the field in the 1A title game. His ability to sustain blocks and open holes gave the Conquerors a huge advantage.

OL – Marc Everhart, Trinity Christian: Yet another senior line prospect that head coach Verlon Dorminey and his staff have talked positively about all season and in the 1A title game, he lived up to the hype!

OL – Zach Simmons, Glades Day: When it comes to protecting the quarterback and opening holes for Kelvin Taylor, here is one of the elite prospects the Gators have. This senior certainly turned plenty of heads.

OL – Jordan Budwig, University School: This quality sophomores has the size and strength to be a great one. Certainly opened holes and blocked extremely well for Cook and the passing game.

OL Isaac Stern, University School: Talk about you impressive athletes. This versatile blocker opened holes, provided plenty of protection and used his 6-4, 315-pound frame in a productive way.

OL – Tyler Riley, Ocala Trinity Catholic: If you watched the Celtics move the ball in the 2B state title game, and you watched the line play, this gifted junior center was truly one of the catalysts for the state champions. Very impressive blocking skills.

DL – Tyrell Denson, Cocoa:
This quick junior added to his lofty totals in the title game with three sacks, multiple pressures and holding Glades Central to only 13 points. Denson was in the backfield of Glades Central the entire game. He should be back strong once again in 2011 to try and help Cocoa win four straight titles.

DL – Jonathan General, Ocala Trinity Catholic: If you kept on eye on the defensive side of the ball in the 2B title game, this play-maker is quick and gets up the field quickly for the Celtics' defense. General will be back next season and leads a very talented defense in 2011.

DL – Robert Way, Glades Central: Is there anyone in the state of Florida who continues to play at a high level with such little publicity? After the first weekend of the state playoffs, everyone had the chance to finally see how productive this senior can be.

DL – Mike Ferguson, Cocoa: One of the big time defensive players on a team that was among the nation's best. This junior has a knack of being around the ball.

LB – Justin Cooper, Davie University: If there was one player who didn't get the pre-game hype that he deserved, this is him. A gifted senior play-maker who has size, speed and a knack of coming up with the big play.

LB – Tyjuan Frey, Ocala Trinity Catholic: One of the most active players in the 2B state title game, this senior was all around the ball, chasing down a very quick and talented University School team.

LB – Marvel Taylor, Jacksonville Trinity Christian: This gifted two-way performer not only came up with huge plays on the defensive side of the ball, but also made a lasting impression as a fullback on offense.

LB – Corey Garcia, Glades Day: Before the game, he was not the player everyone was talking about, but this junior found a way to showcase his many abilities, leading his team in tackles (8) and was a key cog in a defense that helped slow down Warner Christian in the 2nd half of their win.

DB – Chris Johnson, Ocala Trinity Catholic: Easily one of the best athletes and football talents who competed in the first weekend. His speed, knowledge of the game and passion put him a position to make numerous plays.

DB – Breon Allen, Daytona Warner Christian: For the past three years, this has been one of the state's best two-way performers. His 11 tackles (3 for loss) was a final line that attracted the attention of every player and coach on the field. He also managed to also run for 147 yards on offense. A complete player!

DB – Taylor Oldham, Daytona Warner Christian: If the Eagles had won the tremendous game against Glades Day, he would have been a shoe-in for Defensive MVP. He was all over the field for Warner Christian. The talented defensive back looks to lead Warner to their fourth straight title game next season.

DB – Jamonte Jones, Ocala Trinity Catholic: In state championships each season, there are young players who step up and showcase their skills for the future. Here is a sophomore who certainly made a lasting impression.

DB – Edwin Thomas-American Heritage Delray: This talented junior truly showcased his athletic ability with 8 tackles and kept the Stallions in the game from beginning.
