If you follow what we do throughout the course of a year, you already know that anyone who plays football in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties is what we concentrate on.
Unlike many fan websites who focus on the star-rated athletes, we go beyond that and recognize that Power 5 and Group of 5 football are not the only games in town.
While we do spotlight many of those elite players, we also make sure that those football prospects who will perform at the D2, D3, NAIA, Junior College, FSC and Prep Schools are also put in the spotlight to get their share of the attention.
Today we turn our attention to five Class of 2025 football players from Broward County who are not getting the attention, but still have dreams of one day playing at the next level while getting a college education.
Among those gifted young men include:
Toby Aurilla, DB/Athlete, 5-10, 160, Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian Academy. 3.8 GPA. Here is a two-way standout who has stepped up for the Eagles on both sides of the ball. A sure tackler who has the athleticism to come up with key tackles as well as make an impact on coverage from his cornerback position. An instinctive player who leads by example.
Samael Hung, DT/OL, 6-0, 235, Coral Springs Taravella. 3.3 GPA. Because he plays for a program that rarely gets any exposure, this is someone who really has a chance to be special. A true nose tackle on the defensive side of the ball. Someone who is strong and competes with plenty of passion. Very tough to block because he plays low and makes it tough to get into his body. Yet another of these under-the-radar talents who makes an impact.
Tyler Jackson, Athlete, 5-9, 165, Fort Lauderdale Stranahan. No matter where he lines up, here is a quality talent who continues to get better and turns heads. Watch him play and you will see him make plays on both sides of the ball and on special teams where he showcases his aggressive style of play. A slot receiver who gets open and will make plays. Keep an eye on this young man. He is indeed a fast-rising prospect.
Shamauri O’Brien, CB, 5-11, 145, Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons. On a team loaded with big time playmakers, here is a young, gifted football player who has the chance to make an impact this coming season. No the biggest player on the field, but his skill level gives him a chance to cover receivers who may have a physical advantage, but NOT be better as a pure football player. This is the type of football talent that this team features every season. Another prospect to keep an eye on.
Tyler Seraphin, FS/CB South Plantation. If you watch this young man play, you can see that he is certainly someone who needs to be watched over the next year. As a cover cornerback he is athletic, has tremendous anticipation and is not afraid to fight for balls against some of the top receivers. His confidence level continues to go up every time he takes the field. His play as a safety showcases his aggressive style that the Paladins will certainly need moving forward. Can make plays in the open field.
