Winston Moss, Steve Everitt, Joey Vargas, James Burgess: You all missed out on a lot of great players. Dig deeper! Randall Keiser (Fullback) NMB, The Holt family at North Miami.

Anthony Lanier

Oops! You did name Randall Keiser. What about the safety from Gables in the late 80's. You guys get paid to do this and you are missing quite a few guys.

Anthony Lanier

Harvey "Catfish" Reed, Pat Young, Roscoe Parrish, Paul Moore, ETC.

Anthony Lanier

The dude that played corner at Killian in the early 80's. He went on to play at the "U." Teko Brown. Roell Preston

james reese

Thomas Balkcom - DB - Strong Safety - Miami Edison 1986

fred jones

You left out one of the best defensive player to wear the scarlet silver and grey, that being Melvin Ferguson 1970-1981. He then went on to play at the University of Minnesota

Brandon
