November 25, 2009

Ryan Becker was a quarterback for St. Thomas Aquinas from 2005-2008. In 2008, he accounted for 30 touchdowns and was 125 for 192 through the air. That same year, against Deerfield Beach, he was responsible for 183 yards, two touchdowns and a near-perfect 9 for 11 completions. Ryan currently plays for the Florida State Seminoles.

Joshua Philpart was a wide receiver during his time at Deerfield Beach, playing in the Deerfield-St. Thomas rivalry for four years. In 2007, he led the Bucks to a 35-33 last second victory. Josh had 10 receptions in that game for 165 yards and one touchdown, and his catch in the fourth quarter set up the game-winning field goal. He is now the starting wide receiver for Jacksonville University. Josh’s grandmother, Flo Philpart, accepted the award on his behalf.
