jon chaps

George Williams LB Hialeah High 6-205 4.6 has started since freshman year


Jermaine Grace and Stacey Coley are top 2013 players in south florida


Also look out for Miami Jackson's :
RB's /Reciever :Trenaris Timmons & Vincent Hall as both did great inspire of lack of Seasoned/Proven O-line nor full time O-line coach.


What about Joe Mamma from South. Seriously he had 468 tackles and 10 sacks. Nobody heard of him because the paper never made any of his games due to rain

University School

Joe Momma had more than that in the sacks department. Word around campus is that he sacked the whole team, including the defense.

David Bernal

Look at Marquis Miller DB from Northeast High. He is just as bit as good as Stacy Coley but on the defensive side of the ball.

I know that this is all about the 2013 graduating class, but you should check out James C. Jackson IV, RB/MLB for Ransom Everglades Middle School. Last season, James rushed for 1260 yards, 10 touchdowns in only 6 games. At middle linebacker, he recorded over 50 tackles in 6 games, and 7 sacks. He ran 300+ yards and 3 touchdowns (one for 95, and one for 70)against University School, which they came back and won the game from being down by 2 touchdowns. For his age (12), he is 5'3", 130lbs, and very strong; can carry the entire defense into the endzone. He was at the UM Football Camp on 6/21/2012, and was running with 9th grades in the 40yd dash. This is one to watch at Ransom Everglades Middle during the Varsity Middle 2012 Football season. Bernie Kosar watched him at the University School Football game.
