HERALD SPOTLIGHT: Robert Conyers

Conyers1
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.

PLAYER: Robert Conyers

YEAR: 2012

SCHOOL: G. Holmes Braddock

CITY: Miami

POSITION: OT

HEIGHT: 6-4

WEIGHT: 270
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Frank Rojas

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: First watched him play last year in a big game against rival Coral Park and was impressed by the way he was able to to elevate his play against a number of athletic players the Rams had.

Great footwork that is still getting better, this is a leaner, more athletic lineman who plays tackle now, but could be moved because of his ability to pick things up quickly.

Whether it's a combine setting or in a game, you can easily see why this is a football prospect who will only get better as he gets stronger and becomes more familiar with competing against stronger and faster defensive players at the next level.

What has already gotten him noticed is his athletic frame and footwork, which is easy to spot in a workout, combine or see him during the course of a game.

hilarious. braddock has 1600 latin males and 100 non-hispanic males. the only good player is a gringo. do most of the latin athletes go to belen and columbus?

Larry Blustein

Juan. I have a feeling that Braddock has some very good football players on the roster besides Robert. Jarvon Anderson is the real deal. I am sure that they do have their share of those 1,600 "Hispanic boys" on the team.

Juan- "you can't coach height" - this is a spotlight about recruiting. If any of the "latin males" were getting as much attention from Division I schools as Robert- they would be featured.
