Having the opportunity to watch many of the athletes in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties when they begin playing football at the youth football level, the Miami Herald will shine the spotlight on many athletes during the spring and summer.
With the chance to see the athletes away from the football field as well, we can bring you up close and personal with some of the top prospects in the nation - right here in our own backyard.
PLAYER: Gerod Holliman
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Patrick Burrows
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Having been in the spotlight for over a year now, this is a prospects who is certainly on every college list because of his football skills, athletic ability and future that could watch him play safety or cornerback, where he has a chance to use his large frame.
There are not many players in the state of Florida who have the opportunity to make such an impact as Holliman does. A 4.5-4.6 runner, he has found a way to combine his testing numbers with the ability to play football.
If you watch any of the games he played in last year, tracked his off season progress and follow the impact he makes when he's on the football field, you will agree what colleges have been talking about when evaluating him.
He was part of one of the most athletic secondaries in Florida last year, and many believe he has only gotten better and more dynamic as this season approaches.
