Vero Beach LB Tyler Horstman commits to Bowling Green

While Palm Beach Gardens four-star linebacker Tevon Coney was taking up much of the local media attention committing to Notre Dame on Thursday morning, Vero Beach linebacker Tyler Horstman inconspiculously made his college pledge on Twitter.
 
2015 prospect Horstman committed to Bowling Green on Thursday, choosing the Falcons over offers from schools like Middle Tennessee State, Marshall, Rutgers and Wake Forest.
 
Horstman has helped anchor a Vero defense that has held opponents to single-digit scoring four times, and has also pitched a shutout, as the Fighting Indians have rolled to a 7-0 record in 2014.
 
In a stroke of timeliness, Horstman and Vero Beach take on Coney and Palm Beach Gardens in an out-of-district clash on Friday.
 
Horstman will join a roster full of area natives at Bowling Green. The Falcons feature four Dwyer products in wide receiver Darrell Hunter, defensive linemen Mike Minns and Malik Brown and defensive back Clint Stephens, ex-Suncoast DB Victor Osborne and American Heritage WR product Herve Coby.
 
Former Fort Pierce Central running back Marcus Levy signed with BGSU in 2013 before eventually landing at Nassau Community College.
 
Bowling Green head coach Dino Babers joined ESPN 106.3's "ESPN West Palm Tonight" on Tuesday and discussed the plethora of Palm Beach County/Treasure Coast talent.
 
"They're explosive players. They stand out," said Babers. "There's no doubt that, in that area, there young men like to play football. You're looking for someone that's passionate, that's engaging, that football is really important to. I think that represents a lot of young men that come up out of that area."
 
Horstman was No. 24 on the 2014 ESPN West Palm Top 63 seniors list delivered by Papa John's.

Tevon Coney will be trading in his orange and blue for blue and gold next fall.

The Palm Beach Gardens linebacker verbally committed to Notre Dame on Thursday morning, choosing he Irish over Florida and Miami. The standout senior linebacker is rated as the No. 1 player on the ESPN West Palm Top 63 list.

Coney says he plans on graduating from Palm Beach Gardens in December and will enroll at Notre Dame in February. The linebacker will join former American Heritage running back Greg Bryant as the second Palm Beach County player on the Irish roster.

Wells Dusenbury's Poll (wdusenbury@espnwestpalm.com)
 
1) American Heritage
2) Boynton Beach
3) Dwyer
4) Vero Beach
5) Royal Palm Beach
6) Glades Central
7) Wellington
8) Palm Beach Gardens
9) Atlantic
10) Glades Day
 
Breakdown: The top five remains unchanged from a week ago. American Heritage retains the top spot after resting on its bye week. The Stallions face a major test this week as they host sister school Plantation-American Heritage, one of the top programs in Broward County.
 
Boynton Beach cruised to an easy 42-0 win over Suncoast on Friday night. The real challenge begins this week as the Tigers will take on district foes Coconut Creek and Hallandale in back-to-back weeks. 
 
It wasn't always pretty, but Dwyer was able to pull away from Lake Worth for a 28-7 victory. Regardless, a win is a win and the Panthers are another step closer to a district title.
 
Vero Beach and Royal Palm Beach remain static after big wins over Treasure Coast and Forest Hill, respectively.
 
After a 5-6 season a year ago, Glades Central clinched the district title with a win over University School. The Raiders continue to improve as the season progresses.
 
Wellington jumps up three spots after hammering Seminole Ridge 42-15. The Wolverines' passing attack was nearly unstoppable as Shannon Patrick threw for five touchdowns. Wellington will battle Palm Beach Gardens in two weeks for the district crown.
 
Meanwhile, Palm Beach Gardens comes in at number eight, following its 24-7 win over Jupiter.
 
Last week, Atlantic's playoff hopes looked bleak following a 37-point loss to Royal Palm Beach. On Friday, though, the Eagles came away with an impressive, season-saving 10-0 win over West Boca. Atlantic needs to keep that momentum going this week as they take on third ranked Dwyer. A win would likely secure a postseason bid for the Eagles.
 
West Boca drops to nine following its surprising shutout loss to Atlantic. The Bulls need to beat Dwyer in two weeks and then get some help to make the playoffs.
 
Rounding out the top ten is Glades Day. The Gators continued their stellar start as they improved to 8-0, following a 50-13 win over Boca Raton Christian.

Ken LaVicka's Poll (klavicka@espnwestpalm.com)
 
1) Boynton Beach
2) American Heritage
3) Dwyer
4) Vero Beach
5) Royal Palm Beach
6) Wellington
7) Glades Central
8) Palm Beach Gardens
9) Atlantic
10) Glades Day
 
Breakdown: Boynton Beach remains one of two undefeated teams in the in Palm Beach County after taking out Suncoast. The crazy thing about Boynton's season? Nothing is definitive yet. The Tigers still have two critical games left to actually clinch a playoff berth and both are on the road against quality opponents Hallandale and Coconut Creek.
 
A bye week came at a great time for American Heritage as they prepare for high-octane rival American Heritage of Plantation on Friday. A win here may convince me to push the Stallions to No. 1 no matter what Boynton Beach does.
 
Credit Lake Worth, the Trojans created frustrations for Dwyer, but ultimately, the Panthers just had too much talent on Friday. Two hurdles stand in the way of another Dwyer district title...Atlantic and West Boca Raton back-to-back to close the season.
 
There has been no match for Vero Beach in the Treasure Coast, so the Fighting Indians will take a shot at Palm Beach Gardens in what could be the most entertaining of Friday's high school football games.
 
Thanks to last weekend's win over Forest Hill, a great season for Royal Palm Beach will be punctuated by a return to the playoffs with a victory over Olympic Heights on Friday. The Wildcats then get two nice postseason tune-ups with Palm Beach Central and Seminole Ridge.
 
I'll say it: I'm a believer in Wellington. Thursday's trouncing of Seminole Ridge was a spectacular display prolific offense and hard-nosed defense. Right up with Boynton Beach, Wellington's plays perhaps the most entertaining brand of football in Palm Beach County. QB Shannon Patrick and his uber-athletic receivers are a treat to watch. That's why I have the Wolverines on the verge of entering my top five.
 
Just a remarkable bounce-back season for Glades Central. The Raiders looked like they were going to really struggle this year but Rick Casko has done marvelous job rallying the troops. Glades Central is a district champion and can send a major message at Miami-Northwestern this weekend.
 
It hasn't been pretty but Palm Beach Gardens is safely into the playoffs after grinding by Jupiter. The Gators will find out a lot about themselves, and that sputtering offense, in their final three games against Vero, Wellington and Palm Beach Central.
 
"Good" Atlantic came to play against West Boca Raton last Friday and launched itself back into my top ten. The Eagles blanked an offense that put up 80 the week before. I've never heard of that in my life. Atlantic needs to upset Dwyer this week to keep playoff hopes alive.
 
Glades Day continued its romp through the schedule with a beatdown of Boca Christian and now has its sights set on former head coach Pete Walker and Clewiston. The Gators have received little resistance this year but will certainly get it from fellow unbeaten Clewiston.

Chris Kokell's Poll (ckokell@espnwestpalm.com)
 
1) Boynton Beach
2) American Heritage
3) Vero Beach
4) Dwyer
5) Royal Palm Beach
6) Wellington
7) Glades Central
8) Atlantic
9) West Boca 
10) Palm Beach Gardens
 
The Top 10 is starting to shake out into two tiers that are split right in the middle. While all ten teams in the poll are having great seasons, five are on a level of their own and stay in the same place they were last week.
 
Boynton Beach stays at number one after defeating an injury-riddled Suncoast team 42-0. The Tigers are followed by American Heritage, whose run of impressive wins could only be stopped by this week’s bye. Teams three through five (Vero Beach, Dwyer, Royal Palm Beach) did their job and each won games against teams that they were heavy favorites over. Combined they outscored their respective opponents 108-19.
 
After the midway point is where things get interesting. Wellington moves up a spot after a convincing 42-15 district win over Seminole Ridge to give them a playoff berth. With a bye upcoming, Wellington has two weeks to prepare for their season defining game against No. 10 Palm Beach Gardens. The Gators clinched a playoff spot of their own after defeating Jupiter 24-7 in a district matchup.
 
No. 7 goes to the Glades Central Raiders. Before overreacting to GC only moving up one spot after blowing out University, know that this is not the University team we have grown accustomed to. The Raiders still have to be proud because the win clinched a district title.
 
Atlantic didn’t need any extra motivation in a big district week but they received some watching film of their opponent West Boca running the score up on the Eagles head coach TJ Jackson’s alma mater, Olympic Heights. Coach Jackson had his team fired up and they held the team that decided to put up 80 the week before scoreless. The 13-0 win jumps Atlantic from unranked to number eight and drops the Bulls three spots to number 9.
