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: Junior Sylvestri
SCHOOL: South Broward
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Allen Held
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Having watched the maturity and progress of this talented football player, it comes as no surprise that he has emerged as a D1 prospect with his speed and athletic ability shining through.
Whether it's at testing events or on the field competing, here is an athlete who has parlayed his speed and talent into something that will result in a college scholarship.
Can play anywhere on the field from running back to receiver, safety and on special teams. Colleges we have talked to this spring believe he has probably jumped into the spotlight as quickly as anyone in the Class of 2011.
