Witt, Lewis and Harris on radio

The summer is now in full swing, and the Maroone High School Gridiron Report on WQAM (560 AM) continues to be there every step of the way.

Joining Larry Blustein this Thursday night between 9-10 are Cypress Bay linebacker Josh Witt, Miramar receiver Malcolm Lewis and Booker T. Washington coach Tim “Ice” Harris.

Before anyone in the state of Florida had ever heard of Witt, he was a budding ninth grade standout at Guyer High School in Denton, Tx. When he did settle in, there was little doubt that this was a very impressive player.

Helping to lead the Lightning to within seconds of the school’s first ever state championship appearance, this quality football player has been impressive at every event he attended since the disappointing finish against Miami Central.

So impressive has he been throughout the spring and early summer, several schools started to go after him, but it was the University of Miami that truly reeled in a big time prospect.

Miramar has certainly produced some top flight athletes over the past decade, and many have made it on to the next level with plenty of fanfare along the way.

As good as many of those players are - and have been - Lewis has an opportunity to become one of the greatest Patriots of all time.

Easily one of the top receivers statewide, this quality pass catcher could end up being one of the best in the country.

Every school will continue watching a talented athlete who has dominated since his days as a youth football performer!

To say that Booker T. Washington has one of the better coaching staffs in Florida would not be stretching it at all.

The Tornadoes have always taught their players with veteran coaches who have been through it all, mixed in with a few younger coaches who are rising stars in the profession.

This year’s coaching staff became a whole lot stronger in the spring with the return of one of Miami-Dade’s most respected coaches. Ice Harris comes back to a place where he built this program into state champions before leaving for the University of Miami for a few years.

Harris comes back to find that little has changed in Overtown. This program still has athletes and will compete for the grand prize.
