Four Treasure Coast senior football standouts did a lot of winning during their time as Titans and Wednesday celebrated together their next step in their careers.
Offensive lineman Alex Woods and defensive lineman Corey McIntyre Jr. are headed to the Division I level going to SMU and West Virginia while defensive lineman Christian Ware-Terry and cornerback Kymani Edwin will remain teammates together down the road in Palm Beach County at Keiser.
Woods secured his letter of intent back in December with the Mustangs, and after a high school career that flipped after he moved from defensive line to offense in the trenches, he never looked back.
A two-time first-team all-area selection in his final two seasons, Woods will head to Dallas with the potential to develop and learn as he continues improving the intricacies of the position.
McIntyre follows in the footsteps of his father, Corey Sr., to play for the Mountaineers and was a dominant force in his Titan career.
A first-team all-area selection as a junior and a second-team pick as a senior, McIntyre made 37 tackles, three that went for a loss and added one sack and was also selected as the defensive MVP at the FACA Senior All-Star Game.
Ware-Terry was a first-team all-area pick as a junior and earned honorable mention honors as a senior recording eight tackles for a loss and five sacks.
Edwin earned first-team all-area accolades as a senior registering 40 tackles, three interceptions and defending 14 more passes.
The quartet all played an integral role in the Titans’ state semifinal run in 2021. The overlying message their head coach gave about the four seniors was their willingness to line up with anyone across from them and believe they could be difference-makers.
“I think they put that relentless attitude on this program, they all were relentless,” Treasure Coast head coach Irvin Jones said. “They feared nobody, we never went into a game fearing somebody. We went out there and played regardless of who was on the other side. It’s a special group.”
Central’s Patterson, Thomas stay in-state
Fort Pierce Central seniors Tyler Patterson and Andrew Thomas will both head down to Miami to play college football with Patterson earning a roster spot at FIU to kick and Thomas going to St. Thomas to play linebacker.
Patterson handled all kicking duties for the Cobras throughout his career and was a first-team all-area selection as a senior. With a punting average of 36.8 yards, and pinned opponents inside the 20-yard line 12 times, Patterson also had 12 touchbacks on kickoff duties and was a FACA All-Star.
Thomas registered 72 tackles, 18 which went for a loss and added three sacks for Fort Pierce Central’s defense.
John Carroll Catholic’s Thogersen off to Stetson
John Carroll Catholic offensive lineman Will Thogersen officially signed with Stetson on Wednesday after decommitting from Valparaiso in December.
Thogersen, a first-team all-area selection as a senior, starred at tackle for the Rams helping the program reach the 1A state semifinals and achieve a 10-2 season in 2022.
Westwood’s Nonnombre inks with St. Thomas
Fort Pierce Westwood senior Javian Nonnombre signed with St. Thomas University on Wednesday after putting together a productive final high school season all over the field for the Panthers.
Accounting for three touchdowns on offense from quarterback to tight end, Nonnombre at defensive end made 38 tackles, had nine that went for a loss and added three sacks.
Vero’s Parris signs with Keiser
Vero Beach offensive lineman Paul Parris will stay in-state to compete at Keiser University after featuring heavily in the starting lineup in his high school career.
At 6-foot-4, 280 pounds, Harris primarily played guard in his senior year, helping Vero Beach win 11 games in 2022.
