For those who have waited for the 2016 season to arrive, here we go. Practice starts at 12:01 on Monday and the athletes who had hopes and dreams about winning district, regional and state – this is the time that it will all unfold.
For the past nine months, since Miami Booker T. Washington (4A), Miami Central (6A), St. Thomas Aquinas (7A) and Flanagan (8A) brought home state titles, there have been a number of prospects looking for that edge.
We have heard about local players getting it done from Oregon and California – to the University of Miami and FIU. Now, as we continue to do throughout the course of a year, adding players and providing a forum for exposure, we continue to bring these talented young men right to you.
Players who are seeing the exposure needed for college coaches to take a look and possibly extend an offer.
Today, we add six more prospects to the mix:READ MORE: COVID In Florida: 5,520 New Cases, 9 Deaths Reported On Sunday
2017 – Marquis Adams, S/WR, 5-11, 180, Homestead Everglades Prep: Yet another under the radar young man who has the chance to be special – after a solid season down south. His ability to line up on both sides of the ball has certainly made a major impact this offseason. As college coaches checked out his progress, this final season will be huge – as every game will be an audition for a college scholarship.
2017 – Ja’Quez Geffrard, WR, 6-0, 160, Sunrise Piper: On a team that turned the corner last season, finishing 9-2, this is yet another of those outstanding football talents that the Bengals have long promoted. With a solid offseason – where this team has competed against some of the elite football players around – keep an eye on this quality receiver who has the speed, leaping ability and has learned more and more about what it takes to succeed at this level – and behind. The coaches are excited to see how much improvement has been made over the past eight months.
2018 – Terrell Perriman, WR, 5-11, 180, Miami Central: When we first saw this quality prospect lineup last year, there was no doubt, when given a chance, he was going to be an impact performer. Has the quickness, athletic ability and the knowledge of the game. Add in the fact that he competes against some of the best players every day in practice, and you have a young man who is ready for the challenges over the next two seasons. College coaches have already taken notice in the offseason, and are extremely excited about 2016, and beyond.
2017 – Marcelo Rodriguez, QB, 6-3, 200, Miami Christopher Columbus: As the 2016 season unfolds, here is a quarterback prospect who is looking to put it all together with the Explorers after spending his first three years at Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna and Miami High. Rodriguez is a solid football player who has been around the game all of his young life, watching his father who has been a head coach and defensive specialist. He has a strong arm and knows how to read defenses, which has already helped to give this team plenty of help at a position of need.
2017 – Corey Sesto, S, 5-11, 160, Pembroke Pines West Broward: In the competitive world that is South Florida football, there are athletes, like this, that seem to rise to any occasion and step up to not only lead, but make plays. With first-year head coach Monte Dilworth in place, this is the kind of aggressive and hard-working player who will benefit. Hard worker who is always around the ball, and while he may not be that major D-I kind of player colleges hunt for, there is perhaps no harder worker and more talented young man that this. Watch him play and you will see for yourself. He is indeed the “gamer” every program searches for.
2018 – Dakarai Woodside, DB/QB, 5-8, 145, Miramar Everglades: Yet another young prospect who is coming off a solid spring and summer who will now jump into the spotlight as the 2016 season quickly approaches. Here is a two-way athlete who can get it done as a quarterback on the offensive side of the ball – while putting together a solid past eight months in the secondary. With head coach Art Taylor and his staff working hard, developing players like this, things can happen – just like that.
