Joining Larry Blustein on this week’s show are Fort Lauderdale Westminster Academy receiver Josh Orsino, Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons head coach Mike Morrill and Miami Jackson head coach Nigel Dunn.
OUT OF NOWHERE!
When two former NFL standouts who are now coaching at the high school level repeatedly tell you how good a receiver is, you listen.
Despite having a record-breaking junior season, where he set Broward's all-time records for both receiving yards (1360) and TD's (22) in a single regular. He has started off the way he ended his 2010 season - making catches and turning heads.
With no concrete offers in the works, this is a 6-0, 180-pounder who can run, catch, move the sticks and get it done in the classroom. What else are colleges looking for?
SUCCESS - AGAIN
No matter what teams they put in the district with the cardinal Gibbons Chiefs, veteran head coach Mike Morrill and his staff have met the challenge.
This year that challenge includes Plantation American Heritage, Hallandale and Dillard, but before the 4-0 Chiefs get to those important district games, they will tangle with undefeated Coral Springs next week in a non-district contest.
HE’S NOT DUNN
Just when everyone wanted to safely tuck the Jackson Generals away, claiming they didn’t have enough athletes to keep up with the “big boys”, here they are perfect out of the gate.
Once again, like he’s done at Miami High, Norland (state title) and at Jackson, Nigel Dunn adds discipline and a self-belief attitude, and the players are sold.
With some big games still left to play, the Generals have a long way to go to hoist that trophy. A real long way!
And, as he does every week, Jonah Woullard, from the very popular Generation Nexxt Youth Sports Network, will join in with a look at some of the future of high school football
