Freeman, Sonneborn and Bennett on radio

As we head toward the final week of the regular season, there is a lot to talk about on the Maroone High school Gridiron Report on Thursday night (9-10) once again this week on WQAM (560 AM).

Larry Blustein and Mike Levine have an impressive list of guests for this week's show. Miami Central running back Devonta Freeman, Dade Christian head coach Mike Sonneborn and Northeast head coach Donnell Bennett will talk about the season as well as the upcoming playoffs.

Heading into the 2010 season, there were a number of talented running backs in the state of Florida, but none has watched their stock rise as much as Freeman, who is headed to FSU next year.

Leading the No. 1 rated 6A Rockets this season, Freeman and his team are the favorites to reach Orlando and the state championships for the first time ever this season.

The Rockets will close out the regular season on Saturday night against 3A power Booker T. Washington. They will host Miami High in the first round of the state playoffs next week.

Over the past four years, Sonneborn and his Dade Christian Crusaders have been as impressive as any program in South Florida.

Heading into the season finale on Friday night in Immokalee, Dade Christian is 9-0 and looking for yet another big push in the playoffs.

With a number of quality football players on the roster, this young team is poised for the next few years.

Dade Christian will host talented West Palm Beach King's Academy in the first round of the state 1A playoffs
next Friday.

Two years into his job as head coach at Northeast High, the former University of Miami and NFL standout running back has two playoff appearances to boast about.

Last year, the Hurricanes lost in the opening round of the 6A playoffs to eventual state champions Miramar. This year, as district champions, they will host Western next Friday night.

A very young and talented team, Northeast will end the regular season on Friday at home against 5A power Blanche Ely.
