A different night, but still the same outstanding radio show as the South Florida High School Sports.com powered by Maroone hits the airwaves on WQAM (560 AM – www.wqam.com) Monday night.
Joining Larry Blustein between 9-10 will be Miami Archbishop Carroll record-setting defensive back Leroy Clark, Plantation standout defensive tackle Monty Nelson and Washington State head coach Mike Leach.
PICKING OFF THE ATTENTION
As if his 13 interceptions, numerous pass breakups and several key open field tackles haven’t been enough to sway colleges, Clark is also one of the elite prospects when it comes to special teams and even playing on the offensive side of the ball.
A superb talent who will continue to draw colleges interest in the off season. His ability to make plays will open every door for this talented football player.
A MAJOR FORCE
Check back to last fall and you may be amazed at how many times Nelson’s 6-3, 270-pound frame had two offensive bodies on him. The answer would be several times every game, and he usually won the battles.
This is an outstanding prospect who gets off the ball amazingly quick, and with one full year under his belt on the wrestling mat, this is indeed a football player who could emerge as one of the best in the state.
COAST TO COAST
Last year at this time, Coach Leach was planning some offensive strategy as a volunteer coach at Key West High School. Now, one of the best coaches in the country gets the opportunity to go back to what he does best – coach college football.
After turning Texas Tech into a national power with a wide open offense, Leach now takes his show to the west coast and Pullman, Washington.
One of several new big name coaches in the Pac-12, Leach has already made a huge impact with a program that has been looking for a direction.
One of the first players that Leach brought with him in this current class is Miami Norland safety/linebacker Feddie Davey, who helped lead the Vikings to a state.
Davey is one of those area players that Leach and his assistant coach and Miami native Paul Volero, hope to attract out west each year.
