UCF commit Taevion Swint and St. Cloud QB Logan King highlight area spring football roundup

The Orlando area’s month of spring football practice wrapped up with some impressive spring-game performances.

Among those shining brightest was Kissimmee Osceola running back Taevion Swint. The No. 5-ranked player in he Sentinel’s 2025 Central Florida Super60 ran for three touchdowns and more than 200 yards in a pair of halves against Edgewater and DeLand.

Swint, who committed to UCF’s 2025 recruiting class a year ago, had a 64-yard touchdown in a 7-0 win against Edgewater and had another 64-yard score as well as a 35-yard TD in a 14-0 victory vs. DeLand.

Another top performance came from St. Cloud quarterback Logan King. The rising senior threw for 277 yards and seven touchdowns in a five-team jamboree at St, Cloud. That event included Celebration, Freedom, Viera and Orlando University. St. Cloud’s Alexander Springs had four touchdown catches and 174 yards receiving.
