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: One of Miami-Dade County's top offensive linemen this season for a number of reasons.
While he may not have the perfect height and weight for the "average D1" lineman, watch him through the course of a game and tell anyone that this is not a well coached, technically sound line prospect who can compete against anyone.
While his best position at the next level will be at the center spot - watch him perform at the high school level, and you will see someone who has been taught very well. Just watch where his pads end up on every play. Just watch the way he moves around the field.
If you appreciate quality linemen - and for one second put away the fact that he isn't 6-6 - there is no doubt that you will understand why coaches love what he brings to the table - every day!
