PLAYER: Jesus Machado
SCHOOL: Hialeah Champagnat Catholic
SCOUTING: There are very few athletes in the state of Florida who have excelled and have already gotten their name out to colleges, performing at the varsity level. This second-year varsity starter could be a senior or even a junior with the credentials he has, but in reality, this gifted football talent is just a freshman. Having made a name for himself a year ago as an eighth grader – Machado has already heard from colleges who watched him and are projecting him as an elite prospect for years to come. His quickness and athleticism have certainly come through – and as he matures, it’s going to be very exciting to watch and see him become a football talent that is on his way to the top. He has big-time potential.
