Carnahan Coverage: Central Florida All-Star Game & Orange County Senior Bowl video highlights

Florida’s high school football season came to an end this past weekend. While the remaining handful of teams were prepping for championship matchups at the Florida Citrus Bowl, plenty of other kids were playing in their final prep game as part of local all-star teams.

I shot video of both the Central Florida All-Star Game and Orange County Senior Bowl last week for the Orlando Sentinel. View the results at the links below.

The West broke a five-year losing streak in the 16th Central Florida All-Star Game at Lake Brantley High School on Thursday, winning 28-17.  (Orlando) East River High School’s Tanner Hearn and (Orlando) Boone High School’s Logan Smith each threw for two touchdowns. Smith’s high school teammate Adam Anderson caught two TDs in the first half and was named West Player of the Game.

In the 21st edition of the Orange County Senior Bowl on Wednesday at West Orange High School in Winter Garden, Gunner Ballant threw for two scores on his home field and (Apopka) Wekiva High School’s Jarvis Scott scored twice to help the West beat the East 36-20.

Carnahan Coverage: Pitchers Combine For 20 K’s in Playoff Game

For the second night in a row I found myself covering a high school postseason game that needed extra time to be decided.

West Orange High School scored three runs in the top of the eighth inning on Wednesday to come away with a 3-0 win over Boone in a Class 8A region semifinal, in what was an interesting pitching dual much of the way.

Tennessee commit Kelsey Morrison went 4-for-4 and struck out eight batters for West Orange. Lost in all of this excitement the superb night turned in by Boone’s Chase Cassady, who struck out 12 in the loss.
