The search for the best In Miami-Dade continues

Over the past few weeks, we have added to the initial list we first started, and as of today, we have 446 players to choose the best 100 of all-time in Miami-Dade County. We will keep this list going through the month of July, so if there are still names we don’t have, names spelled wrong or graduation dates and positions you can fill in, it will only help in the final selection.

Remember, this has long been the best area in the nation for high school football talent, so making the top 100 of all-time will be quite an honor. One that many across the country will be interested in seeing the outcome.
