Larry Blustein will talk about the Miami Dolphins/Under Armour Dade vs. Broward football game with Twan Russell of the Dolphins - as well as participants in the game - Johnnie Durante (Dr. Michael Krop) and Flanagan standout receiver Justin Ferguson.
The second annual game will be played on Friday night (7:30) at Sun Life Stadium, and will be the last chance for a number of athletes who are looking to sign a scholarship with a college on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Russell, a one-time standout at St. Thomas Aquinas, University of Miami and in the NFL, has worked extremely hard to put the best product on the field. The selection of the area's top performers gives this game a chance to be one of the most prospect rich event that is held anywhere.
Russell has the opportunity, along with his staff, to see many of these quality athletes year round - through the many programs the Dolphins host within the community.
While many athletes will be using the game to attract an offer, there are others participating who go into this contest with county pride at stake.
Durante, a 6-0, 185-pound safety, recently committed to stay home and play for FIU. This quality football player pretty much flew beneath the radar screen much of the season.
A defensive back standout, Durante is also a special teams prospect who can turn a game around with a kick or punt return.
The heralded Ferguson will cap off quite a high school career. The 6-2, 210-pounder who is headed to Notre Dame gave the Falcons a true game-changer with speed, strength and tremendous size.
Like Durante, Ferguson will use Friday night's game as a pride contest. Dade vs. Broward is perhaps the most prospect-rich game there is.
