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: Paul James
SCHOOL: Dr. Krop
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: David Hudson
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: As we travel the state watching football players up close and personal and not from behind some desk, it is evident that we continue to come across players who many are simply not aware of yet. Here is the perfect example.
While he is just a sophomore, here is perhaps the next huge national recruit from a region of the country that is simply the best. An athlete who has size, speed, strength and tremendous football instincts.
After spending his freshman season at nearby Norland, here is player who will get bigger and stronger as he matures. Has really taken high school football by storm so far with his ability to make plays and control the line of scrimmage at such a young age.
As we travel around the state, searching out some of the top players for the classes ahead, this is one who will certainly find his way toward the top of any list. It will be extremely fun watching this quality talent who doesn't appear to have any flaws as a 10th grader!
