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: Darnell Bloom
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Dameon Jones
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Playing for a defensive secondary as impressive as the Chargers have, you can understand why an athlete like this started to receive so much attention during the spring and into the summer.
If you've watched this underexposed football talent play, you already know how quick he is, and also, how fast reacting he is to plays, often jumping routes - much to the surprise of everyone.
One of those definite fly under the radar players who has exceptional speed, uses his hands very well and has great ball skills. He is always around the action.
Whether it's in a game setting, where he isn't afraid to put his nose into the action, or a 7-on-7 event, a place he has been able to showcase his cover skills, this is the one player people are singling out.
