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: This one time Dr. Krop young prospect has matured, grow some three inches and added muscle to his already imposing frame.
One of the things that got the Vikings to the 3A title game last season was the play up front, be able to block for a superior running game, and provide time for a growing passing game.
This is an athlete who fits the role of a quality prospect. His feet are quick, he has tremendous upper body strength and continues to improve in his battles up front with quality line prospects, which is something colleges will want to see.
Make no mistake, this is an athlete who will turn plenty of heads the rest of the off season and into his final year at the high school level because of the many positives he brings to the game.
