Albury, Johnson and Jackson on radio

With just one week until Kickoff Classics take center stage and the Maroone High School Gridiron Report puts it into high gear on Thursday night with an impressive guest list on WQAM (560 AM).

Larry Blustein welcomes in Miami Northwestern defensive tackle Imarjaye Albury, Killian head coach Cory Johnson and Deerfield head coach Allen Jackson from 9-10.

Throughout the years, Northwestern has sent players to a number of schools, and with the Class of 2012 already starting to take shape, the 6-1, 280-pound Albury has already committed to attend West Virginia University.

One of the most dominating defensive linemen in South Florida, Albury was recruited by former University of Florida running back Robert Gillespie who received the commitment to Morgantown back in March.

There is no program that has worked harder to get back in the elite mix than Killian. With Coach Johnson surrounding himself with a tremendous coaching staff, the objective the past two years was to keep the talent home, and judging by the young talent on this year's squad, mission accomplished.

Known for producing top-fight talent such as Lamar Miller and Bobby Washington, 2011 should see the return of the young, elite players this season in a very competitive district.

If you've been around Deerfield Beach High's football program in the past, you know that the Bucks have some of the best talent available to them each year.

With Jackson coming aboard this spring, his years of teaching and developing has brought a smile to the faces of the fans and players who are not used to losing.

Jackson has a number of quality football prospects on a team that is looking to get back in the playoff mix this season.
