Seymour, Dunn and Weiner on radio

As kickoff classics get going across the state of Florida this week, the High School Gridiron Report will now kick it into high gear on Wednesday night with three impressive guests.

Larry Blustein and Kevin Rogers will welcome in Hialeah senior running back Jerron Seymour, Miami Jackson head coach Nigel Dunn and Tampa Plant head coach Robert Weiner to WQAM (560 AM) from 9-10 p.m.

Despite his lack of size, the 5-7, 190-pound Seymour is regarded by many as the best high school back in the state. Averaging over 12.3 yards per carry, Seymour had 1,493 yards and 17 touchdowns a year ago.

Recruited by Kansas State, West Virgina, FIU, Cincinnati, Tennessee and several others, Seymour is expected to have another banner year.

Whatever school Nigel Dunn coaches and teaches at, he seems to put it all together. Miami High, Norland (state championship) and now with the Miami Jackson Generals, Dunn has found a way to balance tremendous talent with exceptional coaches.

In the same region with defending champion Belen Jesuit, Booker T. Washington, Norland, Hallandale, Archbishop McCarthy, Lake Wales and Fort Pierce Westwood, the Generals certainly have their work cut out, but there is plenty of quality talent to make a serious run!

When Tampa Plant and head coach Robert Weiner on the 5A state title last season, it was the third state crown the Panthers brought back home.

While many quality athletes have since moved on, this Plant team is still loaded with athletes such as FSU commit James Wilder, Jr., Tony Posada (Michigan) and Alabama commit Phillip Ely, who follows in the strong quarterback tradition that also includes Robert Marve and Aaron Murray.

The Panthers heads into the 2010 season as the No. 1 team in the nation, according to the RivalsHigh 100.
