Poole breaks numerous records in All-American game including two set by former Southeast teammate

Brian Poole wrote his name into the record books at the fifth annual Under Armour All-American game Thursday night with one of the events most memorable performances.

The Southeast High cornerback broke four records, including one set last year by his former teammate Jon Dowling.

Poole returned an interception 93 yards for a touchdown that broke two records.

The longest previous touchdown was a 92-yard reception from Andre Debose set in 2009. Dowling set the record for the longest interception returned for a touchdown last year when he took a pick 56 yards to the endzone.

Will Hill had the longest interception return (62 yards) set in '08 until Poole shattered that record with his electrifying return.

Poole also topped Dowling's record for most interception return yards (63), which Dowling got on two picks.

Poole declared immediately after the game that he is a Gator ending speculation that the long time Florida commit might change his mind. Ironically, he will join Debose when he arrives in Gainesville.
