Crafting Linemen Attracts Talented South Florida Group

While there are several camps and combines as well as 7-on-7 tournaments that emphasize quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, defensive backs and linebackers, the linemen are often short-changed when it comes to exposure.

But with group like Crafting Linemen and Torrian Wilson, that perception is changing – for the better.

Exposure events showcase talented offensive and defensive linemen – and provide that instruction and exposure needed.

Last Saturday, Ives Park in North Miami Dade County was the place to be for the Pre-Spring Crafting Linemen event as several talented “big men” came together, and by the time things ended, players and their coaches and parents left with a positive feeling.

With spring football right around the corner, it was time for these high school athletes (classes 2023-2026) to get that exposure needed.

They came from Georgia, Tampa, Port St. Lucie, Clearwater and throughout south Florida to get a jump on the rest of the competition, as colleges and universities will be down soon to check these young men out.

TOP PERFORMERS STAND OUT

As is the case in any event that you attend, there are those athletes who come to learn and those who are there to showcase their many talents.

Among the standouts on Saturday included:

2023

Antawon Foulkes (OL, Pompano Beach Blanche Ely), Aiden Martinez (OL, Miami Belen Jesuit) and Judah Michel (DL, Port St. Lucie Centennial).

2024

Michael Brennan (OL, Weston Cypress Bay), Joseph  Ionata (OL, Clearwater Calvary Christian), Keion Reyes (OL, Miami Central), Jonathan Rodriguez (OL, Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons) and Elyjah  Thurmon (OL, Bradwell Institute, Georgia).

“Very impressive group of linemen,” Wilson said. “ I was really bowled over by the young prospects who did so well. It shows that we are in great hands for years to come on both sides of the line.”
