While we bring you thousands of football prospects during the course of a year in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, it’s the post season where the spotlight is watched by everyone.
From colleges and universities to recruiting analysts and services, this is the time of year where athletes are validated for their contributions. Get it done against elite playoff competition and you are proving that the evaluations are indeed for real.
As we head into the Region Final this week across the state and in the two counties, there are some Class of 2025 prospects who have certainly stepped up to the next level.
Here are five football players who have helped to get their respective programs to this level:
Nimari Brantley, DT, 6-2, 270, Coconut Creek. From his early years as a linebacker to what he has grown into, this is one of the best linemen in south Florida – and five head coaches who played against him this season – all agree that when you play the Cougars, this is one of the prospects that you had better account for or it will be a long night. Had outstanding games against national power Chaminade-Madonna and Plantation where he registered 10 first-quarter tackles and 2 sacks. Already holding Power 5 offers, look for his stock to rise even more during the off-season.
Kevin Cascudo, WR, 5-8, 155, Homestead. While the Broncos are loaded with talent all over their roster, this gifted junior has helped to lift the team to a top seed and a Region Final appearance. Another prospect who will have a huge off-season. His ability to be that ultimate team player has been huge for the defending 3M state runner up.
Hector Chavez, LB, 5-10, 205, Miami Christopher Columbus. What else can you say about this amazing playmaker that hasn’t been said. From his play during his sophomore season on the 4M state championship team to this year where he has helped the Explorers into the Region Final, his ability to make tackles and come up with key plays has not gone without notice. He is indeed the real deal!
Andrew Indorf, QB, 6-0, 190, Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas. Before the start of the 2023 season, there were those who never gave this prospect any respect. They felt that the Raiders were sure to drop off with an inexperienced signal caller running the offense. Well, they were all wrong. All he did this year was make plays and give this No. 1 seed and four-time defending state champions a place in the Region Final. His 2,200 yards and 31 touchdowns have been among the best in south Florida as well as throughout the state. He has only thrown two interceptions.
Sinorice Moss Jr., RB, 5-9, 190, Davie Western. 4.21 GPA. When you happen to be the son of a superior athlete, there is often a lot of pressure that goes along with it, but this young man worked hard and has been instrumental in helping the Wildcats get to the Region Finals. He is a tough runner who combines so much talent with impressive size. He has picked up the program at a position of need.
