Athlete of the Week: Menendez LB Tony Steward

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Pedro Menendez High School star Tony Steward is this week's HighSchoolSports.net Athlete of the Week.

Steward will play linebacker in college, and he's one of the top recruits in the country.  In addition to playing defense, Tony also plays on offense for the Falcons.  This past Friday night, he threw a touchdown pass, ran for a touchdown, and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in Menendez's 36-15 win over Middleburg.  Through five games this season, Steward has returned three kickoffs for touchdowns.

Florida State, Clemson, Alabama, and Florida are among the finalists for Steward's services.  He says he'll wait until Signing Day in February to announce where he'll go to college.

Evidence Room Too Small For Collection in St. Johns County

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. --  Behind locked doors at the St Johns County Sheriff's Office is the evidence room.

"What's in the room ... is the critical stuff from homicide cases, drug cases," Sgt. Chuck Mulligan with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office explained.

It is full of items related to crime scenes and investigations in St. Johns County - so full, in fact, that some of the items had to be moved to other locations. 

"Some of the evidence pieces, especially from capital crimes, we can never dispose of," Mulligan explained.

The solution? The county is stripping an existing sheriff's office building and turning it into a new and much bigger evidence room. However, the building is no ordinary structure.
