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: Makes his way to Southridge for his final season after two stellar years at Coral Reef.
This is a big, physical football prospect who runs extremely well and is exceptionally strong. He could emerge into something special this coming season, especially with the talent he has around him on the defensive side of the ball.
Saw him for the first time at the end of his freshman season, and by the way he played at such a young age, there was little doubt that he would become something very special.
His ability to stop the run as well as he creates pressure as a pass rusher will give him a major advantage. Will be counted on heavily to provide that inside rush that all great defenses have. Keep your eye on his progress. Colleges simply love what he has to offer.
