Central Florida Got Game

11/1/2008

Who's got game? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here are the athletes we recognized in November:

MYWAN JACKSON
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

In September, McGraw and Doerfler captured a USTA Level 3 national
doubles tournament title in Delray Beach. The Winter Park duo
defeated junior Brittany Dubins, the No. 2 state singles champion
for Dr. Krop last spring, and Jaime Yapp-Shing, who won
the Class 1A overall doubles title for Ransom
Everglades. Doerfler was named Girls' Tennis
Player of the Year by The Orlando
Sentinel last spring, while McGraw
earned first team All-Central
Florida honors.

PAIGE GOODWIN
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.

CORREY JOHNSON
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.
