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: Frankie Hernandez
SCHOOL: Belen Jesuit
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Richard Stuart
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: If you watched this quality football prospect play the past two years, you don't need for anyone to tell you how productive he has been for the Wolverines. You already know how makes tackles on defense and has huge runs on the offensive side of the ball.
No matter what team this program has lined up against the past two years, Hernandez found a way to make key plays against schools such as Norland, Jackson, Columbus and more.
In a region loaded with players, this is one of the two-way prospects who has flown way beneath the radar screen. His speed, football skills and instincts and knowledge have given him a major advantage.
One of the big time play-makers for this class, and as the season gets closer, colleges will certainly get a look at one of the best this schools has ever produced on the football field!
