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: Terrence Mitchell
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Steve Davis
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Was singled out by one of his former teammates as one of the best kept secrets in South Florida, and after watching him for two years, the assessment is 100 percent correct.
Even as a player who was a role player in 2009 for the Colonels, he still managed to account for 1,000 total yards, combining speed, instinctive running and working harder than the next player.
The most important thing that has happened in his brief career is his ability to pick up other positions and understanding how to be a complete player, which is a trademark of Steve Davis coached teams.
In a region that has more than its share of talented athletes, keep an eye out for this quality football talent throughout the summer and into the 2010 season.
