ST. PETERSBURG, Florida -- The best high school football players in the country converged on Tropicana Field for the annual Under Armour All-American game.

The greatest concentration of players from any one area in the nation came from Tampa Bay with five of the close to 80 participants.

Team Highlight, which was represented by four local standouts, won the game 16-3. Wharton's Vernon Hargreaves III won MVP honors for the black team.

Armwood's Leon McQuay III put an end to the drama surrounding his recruitment by announcing on ESPN that he will attend the University of Southern California.  

St. Pete high kicker and future UCLA Bruin Sean Covington scored most of the points in the game, accounting for 10. Covington kicked three field goals and tacked on an extra point.
