Counting down to National Signing Day

Recruiting takes center stage this Wednesday night as the Maroone High School Gridiron Report counts down toward Feb. 1 with a trio of guests that will help you prepare for National Signing Day.

Joining Larry Blustein between 9-10 on WQAM (560 AM) will be Linda Doyle from Arena Advertising and Marketing, Josh Darrow, Managing Editor of the very popular South Florida High School Sports (http://sfhighschoolsports.com/) website and Charles Fishbein of Elite Scouting Services.

The 4th annual South Florida High School Football Signing Day TV Special and Celebration will take place on February 1st at Dave & Buster’s Hollywood. This Celebration Show starts at 5:30pm and the LIVE TV show airs on NBC6 at 7:00pm. The event is hosted by Joe Rose and Adam Kuperstein.

This event is FREE for ALL senior football players in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County, along with coaching staffs, Athletic Directors, Player’s families and friends are invited to be a part of the TV show and celebration at Dave & Buster’s Hollywood. Last year the event was billed as “The largest gathering of high school recruits ever in South Florida.”

Doyle and her staff have worked very hard to make this a quality event.

One of the "new kids on the block" when it comes to covering high school sports in the region is SouthFloridaHighSchoolSports.com. With a heavy emphasis on football, this is a website that has been a huge addition.

With games and video interviews along with BLOGS and player information, the website has been recognized as one of the main sources for year-round high school sports information.

Darrow has developed the website into a tool that is used by college coaches, high school coaches, parents and players.

On Thursday, Feb. 2 from 7-10 p.m. Bokampers in Miramar is the place to be for a LIVE radio show, devoted to the Miami Hurricanes and other South Florida recruits.

UM signees and their families will join other Hurricane fans for the event.

Over the next week or so, there will be many questions asked of athletes who are ready to sign on that dotted line as part of the Class of 2012.

Nobody knows more what it's like this time of year than Fishbein. He has watched many signing days, and understands what's at stake.

How did Miami do? What about FSU or Florida? Check out to see what Fishbein thinks of those classes.
