PLAYER: Tai Lehtio
SCHOOL: Parkland Douglas
SCOUTING: After following his brother for three years, and then watching this young man a year ago – and into this season, you can see how special a student/athlete he is. No matter where he lines up on the field, Lehtio will impact the game in some way. He is a tremendous receiver who is tough, strong and quick – and has the opportunity over the next few years to be very special. This is the type of player that when he puts that uniform on, he becomes focused on getting the job done. He’s not a talker. Just someone who respects the game and knows that he will give everything to help his team win. Head Coach Willis May has talked about what a huge impact Tai makes whenever he is on the football field. Lehtio has big-time potential who has been hidden too long. He will be one of South Florida’s top players next year as well.
