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: Ken Hankerson

CITY: Fort Lauderdale

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Over the past three years, this is a player that every class before him talked about as a future star, and now that his senior season is on the horizon, they were all right.
Here is a very athletic, strong talent who has been getting it done since his sophomore year when he was a member of the national champions. A very impressive football player who runs well and is one of the top play-makers on a very good team.
Colleges have been watching his progress over the past year, and this spring, most have started to get serious about his future.
One of the few sophomore starters this program has had over the past few years. That's how impressive he has been for the Raiders.
