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: Kevin Viera
SCHOOL: Belen Jesuit
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Richard Stuart
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: From the time he stepped on the field for the Wolverines, there was never any doubt how much effort this impressive young man would put into becoming the best he can be.
For three seasons, he has learned, developed and has made himself quite a package for any school, searching for someone who is a typical "lunch bucket" kid who is all business - year round.
One of the hardest workers on a unit that is as good as you will find, his zest to attend as many events that will help improve is something that college coaches will be simply bowled over by.
His strength, quick feet and ability to make a difference on several plays with a key block, trap or just being in the right place to spring a long gain, all play into what kind of linemen he is. Nobody works harder!
