Ferguson Falcons Ready To Defend Title

Gene Chew has been the only head football coach Miami Ferguson has ever had.

That is two decades of leading, teaching and setting an example for young men to follow – not only in athletics, but life as well.

Last November 16th, all those years of developing and changing lives came full circle on a warm afternoon at Tropical Park.

Facing off for the second time in the season against longtime rival Miami Braddock, the Falcons would avenge their only loss of the season when they came away with a 21-9 win.

While that victory didn’t grab the headlines, it meant just about everything to fans, students, administration, teachers and parents. Most of all, that victory ended the season 10-1 and gave this football program a reason to celebrate and hold their collective heads up high.

This school, which is one of the largest in the state, finally had the chance to hoist a football trophy as Greater Miami Athletic Conference Independent champions.

With several prospects graduating the objective this spring is to continue developing and rely on a rising senior (2025) class that learned plenty from the championship season.

Among those 2025 prospects, who are ready to lead and provide experience and leadership are Daniel Gutierrez (OL, 5-10, 190), Alexander Lamela (QB, 5-11, 155), Andres Lopez (LB/DE, 6-0, 190), Rocco Monzon (DB, 5-6, 150), Juan Ortiz (OL, 6-2, 250), Samuel Rodriguez (OL, 5-10, 250), Elias Romero (RB, 5-10, 180) and Rolando Rosada (LB, 5-9, 175).


As important as this rising senior class will be, keep an eye on the rising juniors (2026) class as well.

There are a number of student/athletes who are ready to contribute – such as Joseph Capote (OT, 6-2, 280), Enzo Fernandez (WR, 5-7, 165), Hector Hernandez (K/OLB, 5-7, 155), Christian Kishenevsky (WR, 5-8, 145), Ancell Ledon (DE, 6-2, 195), Ray Polo (DE, 5-10, 190), and quarterback Ryan Ramirez (5-8, 150).

The class also includes Rodrigo Rubio (ILB, 5-9, 175), Sean Saenz (DL, 5-10, 180), Sean Sierra (DL/OL, 5-4, 210), and versatile Brandon Tagle (WR/TE, 6-1, 165).

Keep an eye on Class of 2027 rising sophomores Edgar Gonzalez (OL, 6-0, 190), Matthew Iglesias (WR, 5-8, 155), Andres Querales (RB, 5-9, 170) and offensive lineman Luca Rovani (6-1, 200).
