ASA Football Building A Solid Foundation

When we hear talk of grinding and never stop working, that statement applies to every athlete that is looking to make carve out a career.

If you are a football prospect, the desire to reach goals that are set can be the reason that very few are willing to give up on a dream.

This past Saturday, Carter Park in Fort Lauderdale was the place to be as ASA Junior College in Miami held a camp that was open to all prospects, whether they graduated from high school or still competing at the high school level.

As head football coach and athletic director Cornelius Bosier and his staff tested and evaluated, several prospects came out to hopefully one day get the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level.

From Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and throughout Florida, prospects came out to showcase their talents as assistant coach such as former Miami Edison, USF and NFL standout Chad Simpson were out to see if many of these athletes could further fill a roster that will be stacked with talent.

As ASA has a varsity and junior varsity squad, the chance for many impressive football players to grab the spotlight.

Quarterback Kaden Craft and speedy receiver Jantje Wingo came Boone County in Florence, Kentucky as 2019 graduates. Both that wanted to have the chance to get the two years in and move on to a four-year college.

“When we open up our camp in the summer, we will have in the neighborhood of 300 prospects who will be on that field,” Bosier explained. “We have changed the entire look of this program – being a lot more serious about placing these talented young men. We have some very gifted young men on our roster – and we will be very competitive.”

Being the only junior college in the state of Florida to play football, this program is the perfect solution for those young men with a dream to play football and get an education, and of course, move on to the next level.

On Saturday – with Coach Boiser, Coach Simpson as well as Coach Shawn Walters, Coach Dimitri Hill, Coach Jermaine Walters and Coach Rahmann Lee, several football players were watched and talked about over three hours.

Also, high school prospects were on hand to turn heads as well – with Class of 2022 standout Derrick Hamilton (CB, Fort Lauderdale Dillard), rising 2023 defensive end DeeJay Holmes (Pahokee) and versatile Class of 2024 athlete Gabriel Birnbaum (TE/DE, Boca Raton) all looked good.

The event also attracted prospects who have graduated from high school and are searching for a place to play. Some of those players included 2020 graduates Ditavious Burr (S/LB, Fort Pierce Westwood), Julian Dresback (WR/CB, Jupiter Christian), Carlos Franklin Jr. (WR/Slot, New Port Richey Gulf), Dylan Gertz (LB, Merritt Island), Junior Lormeus (PK, Coconut Creek) and quarterback Titan Williamson (Seffner Christian Academy).
