While the IMG Madden Football Academy has attracted some of the top players from around the country, two of the biggest stars this summer have hailed from right across town.

Southeast's (Bradenton, Fla.) Giovani Francois and Brian Poole were named Defensive Line MVP and overall Defensive MVP respectively at the IMG Madden Football Academy's three-day camp over the weekend.

In total, 75 players traveled to Bradenton to participate under the watchful eye of camp director Chris Weinke. Francois and Poole, playing close to home, rose to the top.

Francois is a 6-foot-2, 235-pound defensive end with good strength and sound fundamentals. He recorded 28 tackles and five sacks a year ago.

Only a junior, Poole looks to be one of the country's top defensive backs for the class of 2012. Last season he was responsible for 45 tackles and an interception.

With both players back for the 2010 season, Southeast could have one of the better defenses in South Florida.
