HERALD SPOTLIGHT: Devonta Freeman


Devonte Freeman1
Having the opportunity to watch many of the athletes in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties when they begin playing football at the youth football level, the Miami Herald will shine the spotlight on many athletes during the spring and summer.

With the chance to see the athletes away from the football field as well, we can bring you up close and personal with some of the top prospects in the nation - right here in our own backyard.

PLAYER: Devonta Freeman
YEAR: 2011
SCHOOL: Central
CITY: Miami
POSITION: RB
HEIGHT: 5-10
WEIGHT: 180
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Telly Lockette

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Here is one of the elite running backs in the state this year that saw limited, but productive playing time for the Rockets in 2009.

Playing behind standout Brandon Gainer, this gifted back who we saw two years ago as a freshman at Miami Edison, has everything you are looking for in a back. Easily one of the toughest line from scrimmage runners around.

Runs tackle-to-tackle as well as being able to use his impressive speed to get outside and make something happen.

Has the skill level to run for over 1,000 yards and carry the load when his team needs. In his role last year, there were games in which he really turned heads with his athletic ability.
