« HERALD SPOTLIGHT: Imani Davis | Main | Tyler Drake to take part in US football trials »


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: Garrett Goins

YEAR: 2012

SCHOOL: Western

CITY: Davie





WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: As you head across the region during spring, there are a number of prospects that continue to pop and grab the attention of colleges around the country.

Here is yet another prospect who has worked hard to put himself in a positive position as heads into his final season. From early spring exposure camps to combines and team events, here is someone who has gone a long to throw his name into the talent mix.

A very quick run stopper who has a motor that last an entire game. His objective is to get the offensive player with the ball, and he usually accomplishes that. A vocal leader on a team that has a mix between youth and veteran players.

Has been around the game all of his life, following in the footsteps of his uncles, cousins and grandfather who have made this sport part of their impressive lives. Will have a huge year in 2011!

Talk about a Football Family! Grand dad is the legendary Carl"Buddy"Goins from Miami Springs. His uncles and father was also good football players, and this kid is cut out of the same cloth.
