Julius Whigham High Schools one female athlete from South Fork. Also, the committee is hoping to have South Fork's football stadium renamed in Staggs' honor. "I can't think of anyone who deserves to be honored more than Joebud," said scholarship committee member Marsha Stiller, whose son Derrick played football, soccer and baseball at the school before graduating last year. "I don't care what sport it was or how late it was, Joebud and his wife were always there and giving their support to the kids. I don't think anybody has dedicated more time and given as much of themselves than Joebud did."

Staggs died last December of cancer in Kentucky, where he and his wife Avy moved following .Staggs' retirement, i South Fork recently announced that it will award a scholarship to South Fork student ".athletes in Staggs' honor.

College football UM coach Butch Davis indicated Wednesday he hoped to change McMillan's mind, but the player says there is no chance of that happening. "I'm not coming back for next year. I know that,' said the junior. McMillan started UM's first three games at tailback in 1997, but missed the rest of the year after injuring his shoulder and received a redshirt. McMillan's injury allowed for the emergence of 1,000-yard rusher Edgerrin James and back-up James Jackson. With James and Jackson re turning next season, Davis decided to move McMillan to fullback where he was to compete with Nick Williams and Wilbur Valdez for the starting position. " McMillan said he was told that the fullback, rarely used as a ball carrier in Davis' offensive system, would see more work. "I didn't run the ball once during the (four) days I was outat practice," McMillan said. McMillan also said he was under the impression that the switch to fullback was "temporary" but found out recently that it wasn't. Davis said he met with McMillan on Monday and tried to talk the player out of quitting. "We had a long conversation," Davis said. "I told him that, clearly, it's in his best interest (to stay at UM)." McMillan said he hasn't given much thought to playing football at another school and added he might give up the sport altogether. , McMillan led the team in rushing during the 1996 season by gaining 565 yards. Noteworthy: Michael Lawson has been moved from defensive tackle to defensive end. Lawson, an Atlantic High School who started five games last season, made the switch this week after starting defensive end Derrick Ham was lost for the rest of spring practice with a torn pectoral muscle. . . . Defensive tackle Nick Nettles, a freshman from Wellington, underwent surgery after separating his shoulder Saturday during practice. Nettles will miss the rest of spring drills, but -is expected to be ready for fall practice. . . .

Centennial nears football decision: Centennial High School could have a decision about its first football coach by Friday, Athletic Director Mike Leeds said. Interviews concluded for the four finalists earlier this week. The finalists are Fort Pierce Central coach Steve Ely, Jim O'Neal of Class 2A state champion Chiefland, Jean Gordon of St. Petersburg-Boca Ciega and Jim Mathisen of Parkland-Stoneman Douglas. They play baseball in the Glades, too: Can't blame Jim Reynolds, the baseball coach at Glades Central, if he was feeling a little giddy after a 2-0 victory against Wellington. "We felt, myself included, like we had won the World Series," Reynolds said. It s the first time Glades Central ever has beaten Wellington in baseball, and arguably the biggest win ever for the Raiders' baseball program. Staff writer Steve Dorsey contributed to this report.
