Devante Myles, Armwood

WHY WE CHOSE HIM: In three games last week, the 6-foot-3 junior forward had performances of 28 points, 21 rebounds; 27 points, 34 rebounds; and 30 points, 15 rebounds. His 34 rebounds in the Hawks' win against Blake set a school record. Myles joined the team after the start of the season because he also was a defensive lineman on the school's state runner-up football team.

COLLEGE PLANS: He hopes to play basketball in college. His dream school would be Texas.

Marc Lozada, Riverview

WHY WE CHOSE HIM: The junior helped Riverview win its second consecutive King Invitational Soccer Tournament on Saturday by scoring a goal and drilling home the deciding penalty kick in the Sharks' 2-1 (3-2 PKs) win. Lozada also scored four goals and had an assist in the Sharks' 5-1 win against Plant City in the semifinals. The midfielder has 17 goals on the season and is the Sharks' all-time leading scorer.

COLLEGE PLANS: He would like to attend the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

Sarah Subko, Strawberry Crest

WHY WE CHOSE HER: On Thursday, the junior went 4-0 to win the 128-pound division of the Eagles Challenge, an all-female wrestling tournament at Edgewater High in Orlando. In her first full season wrestling at Strawberry Crest, Subko, also a Pan-American and Cadette World Team judo competitor, is 8-2 against boys and 4-0 against girls. She will compete at the Florida Girls Wrestling Tournament in Orlando on Jan. 25.

COLLEGE PLANS: She plans to study engineering, but would welcome the opportunity to wrestle or compete in judo at the collegiate level. Bethel University in Tennessee has shown interest for judo.
