That's excellent nice one.Thanks for sharing..


I Don't understand how the offensive player of the year for small schools went to anyone besides Conner Vernon or Darian Mallary. Mallary led all of Dade and Broward in Rushing on the least amount of attempts and Vernon led in Receiving by at least 3oo yards. I know it would be better to spread the awards around but come on? Rodney Smith was a great player but he did not dominate like these 2 kids did at the high school level.
