BYU football: Kaufusi enjoys coaching one son, watching the other (Salt Lake Tribune)

(5 days ago) Provo • BYU defensive line coach Steve Kaufusi is a busy man these days, and not just because he is preparing the Cougars to play against Memphis in the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl on Dec. 22 in Florida. These days, Kaufusi is playing two roles — as a fan and supportive parent, and as a coach. Six months ago, it appeared that Kaufusi would have two sons playing football for BYU in 2014 — defensive end-turned-linebacker Bronson Kaufusi, a junior, and returned missionary Corbin Kaufusi, a freshman....

Armwood's Byron Cowart takes Florida Dairy Farmers' top honors for 6A (St. Petersburg Times)

(12/8/2014) Armwood senior defensive end Byron Cowart, one of the top recruits in the nation for the 2015 class, was named the Florida Dairy Farmers' Class 6A player of the year on Monday. East Lake's Bob Hudson and Indian Rocks Christian's Mark Buchanan also nabbed Class 7A and 2A coaching honors, respectively. Armwood coach Sean Callahan finished third in voting in 6A. Cowart is key cog in Armwood's stingy defense and big reason the Hawks are back in the 6A state final this weekend against Miami Central. Cowart has 68 tackles, 21 for loss, through 14 straight wins. He also has tallied 11 sacks, caused five fumbles and blocked three punts. Hillsborough senior quarterback Dwayne Lawson finished second in 6A voting. Cowart is in the running for Florida's Mr. Football (overall player of the year), which will be announced at a later date and is voted on ...

Armwood vs. Central: Then and now (St. Petersburg Times)

(12/10/2014) **Miami Central (13-1) vs. Armwood (14-0)** **Rankings: **Miami Central is ranked No. 4 in Florida, No. 20 in the nation by MaxPreps; Armwood is ranked No. 6 in Florida, No. 66 in the nation. **Know the foe:** Miami Central may be a little bit down from last season -- last year, Florida State's current rising star Dalvin Cook ran all over Armwood in the 6A state championship game -- but that doesn't mean the Rockets should be overlooked. Running backs Cedric Miller and Anthony Jones, who happens to be Cook's cousin, have done a good job replacing the current Seminole, combining for 2,433 yards rushing and 29 touchdowns. On defense, Armwood coach Sean Callahan said, the Rockets are just as good. Miami Central has outscored opponents 497-171. Senior defensive end Keivonnis Davis is commited to Syracuse, and junior safety Jamel Cook (Dalvin Cook's brother) has offers from ...

Caylan Holloway, Armwood’s running game emerge from shadows (St. Petersburg Times)

(12/3/2014) SEFFNER -- Caylan Holloway was on the sideline at the Citrus Bowl on Dec. 16, 2011, watching as running backs Wade Edwards and Matt Jones helped Armwood beat Miami Central 40-31 in a Class 6A championship game. From that day on, the freshman running back, who split time between the junior varsity and varsity teams, couldn't get that feeling of being on top -- even if the Florida High School Athletic Association would eventually strip that title from Armwood -- out of his head. "I actually dream about it," he said. Three years later, Holloway is on the cusp of turning that dream into a reality. Armwood (13-0) will travel to face Fort Walton Beach Choctawhatchee for Friday's Class 6A state semifinal. A win would put the Hawks in the state championship game for the fourth time in five years. Led by veteran coach Sean Callahan, a self-proclaimed defensive guy, Armwood ...
