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 continue to shine the spotlight on many athletes during the pre-spring, 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.
Don't forget that the exposure continues on FACEBOOK (Herald Recruiting) and via Twitter @ larryblustein.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: For those who follow high school football in South Florida, you already know how impressive this quality back is.
His speed, strength and knack of knowing how to pick put holes and run to them put him a class by himself.
In a region of the state that routinely puts out football talent like this, here is a complete running back who not only runs for a huge amount of yardage, but he can also catch, block and turn a game around by himself.
Over the next few months, into the spring and summer, here is a player who will watch his stock soar. Will be among the state rushing leaders in 2011 again.
