The Sarasota Millionaires' 2013 All-Star Selections For The South Florida Conference Are:
By Doug Miles
The Sarasota Millionaires season came to an end in a 52-34 loss to the Florida Stingrays in the United Football Federation South Conference Championship game Saturday night in Ft. Myers, FL. Six touchdown passes by quarterback Lonnie Young vaulted the Stingrays into the United Cup III championship game to be played on June 1st at Clearwater High School against the Brooksville Ballers.
The Sarasota Millionaires (9-3) will head down to Ft. Myers on Saturday to play the Florida Stingrays (10-2) in the UFF South Conference Championship game. The winner will earn a spot in the United Cup III in Clearwater on June 1. The Millionaires defeated the Broward County Cowboys 20-6 last week in Pembroke Pines, FL. Mike Ford returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Gus Blanc picked off another pass and ran it back 80 yards for the eventual winning score to vault the “Moneymen” to the conference title game. In all, the Sarasota intercepted 6 passes as the “Blackout” defense held the Cowboys to just one touchdown in the divisional playoff game. The Stingrays beat the Florida Veterans 38-20 in Ft. Myers to advance to Saturday’s conference title contest, which they will host at Ruttenberg Park in Ft. Myers. The Sarasota Millionaires defeated the Florida Stingrays 34-30 in Ft. Myers on March 9th in a tilt that seesawed back and forth until the final 1:29 when Patrick “Choo Choo” Brown scored on a two-yard run to seal the win for the Millionaires. Brown had a career best night rushing for 165 yards on 24 carries with three touchdowns and a two-pointer.Continue Reading Story Here
In the playoffs defense wins ballgames. The Sarasota Millionaires (9-3) defense came through with six interceptions, including two run back for touchdowns to defeat the Broward County Cowboys (9-2) 20-6 Saturday night in a UFF Divisional Playoff game in Pembroke Pines, FL . The victory puts the Millionaires in the United Football Federation conference championship next Saturday (May 18) in Ft. Myers against the Florida Stingrays. Trailing 6-0 throughout a tightly played first half, Mike Ford intercepted a Daryle Hopper pass at the Millionaires goal line and returned it down the sideline 100 yards for a touchdown, tying the game at 6-6 as time expired in the first half. “It was a surprise to everybody, the other team too. They didn’t know I was that fast”, Ford said about the play which switched the momentum back in Sarasota’s favor after the offense came up empty in the first 30 minutes of play. “We struggled on offense in the first half”, said Millionaires Head Coach Ernest Givins. “We were having problems picking up certain types of blitzes. Once we settled down and got back to the basic fundamentals of the offense, everything started to gel for us.”Continue Reading Full Story Here
