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: Ritchy Desir
SCHOOL: North Miami Beach
CITY: North Miami Beach
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Jeff Bertani
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The first time anyone got a look at this impressive athlete was at the end of his 9th grade season when he helped the Chargers defeat Northwestern, 25-0, in a spring game.
His ability to catch, throw, run and cover has made him one of the top all around athletes in South Florida.
The Chargers have always produced athletes like this going back to Doug Wiggins, Louis Delmas and E.J. Biggers. Make no mistake, any position Desir plays at the next level, he will make a major difference because of his ability to play the sport of football and his tremendous athletic ability.
Although he plays quarterback and receiver at the high school level, many who have watched him through the years feel that he will be a quality defensive back.
