It is Daunte Culpepper, who played for Ocala Vanguard back in the early 1990's.  This photo was taken at the 1994 5A state semis, which was played in Ocala.  Culpepper and former NFL receiver Kenny Clark led the Knights to a 41-14 victory over Merritt Island.  Following that victory, Vanguard lost a 19-17 heartbreaker to USA Today #1 ranked Bradenton Southeast in the 5A finals when their field goal kicker missed a 24-yard field goal on Vanguard's last drive.  That Southeast team was led by another legend, Peter Warrick, who played qb in that game.  Can you imagine those guys on the field at the same time? 

Culpepper passed for more than 6000 yards and 57 touchdowns during his career.  He went on to smash records at UCF before moving on to a successful career in the NFL.

I remember attending this game, it was my senior year in high school, with my football teammates. We were sitting on the Southeast side, and those fans were getting might nervous when Daunte Culpepper led the Knights down the field to try to win the game.
