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: Cedric Walker
SCHOOL: Gulliver Prep
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Earl Sims
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: By now, if you haven't heard about this talented athlete, you are definitely in the minority. For the past two years, he has showcased his many skills all over the field for the Raiders.
Truly one of the most underrated backs who has speed, tremendous vision and will not go down on the initial hit.
In addition to being able to run the ball and pick put holes, he also has tremendous hands and awareness of the entire field. His 900 plus yards last year on the ground illustrates what he means to this program.
While offense is where he earned much of his acclaim, his skills as a defensive back always gives him an advantage with speed, the ability to read offenses and make plays. Last year, he came up with four interceptions. One of the players who has really picked up momentum this year!
