Miami Palmetto Prevails At FIU 7-on-7 Event

When Miami Palmetto lost a second-round state playoff game to Davie Western last November, it ended what had been a productive season.

The Panthers and head coach Mike Manasco felt they had the team to perhaps make it all the way to Tallahassee, but that setback to Western and an earlier season loss to eventual state champion Miami Christopher Columbus stood in the way of getting to state title game for the first time in school history.

While several key players moved on to the next level, this program knew that what they had coming back and coming in would vault them into the spotlight once again in 2024.

After a successful spring, this team headed toward the summer with plenty of optimism.

With several 7-on-7 and camps available all over the state and throughout south Florida, the Panthers too full advantage.


On Wednesday, Palmetto took part in the Florida International University 7-on-7 event, and when they beat defending state 2M runner-up Miami Norland, 12-7, they took home the title.

Among the talent that propelled the Panthers included offensive prospects Lucas Goenaga (QB, 2025) and Andre Bailey (QB, 2026). Receivers Cameron Sapp (2025), Marquis Robinson (2025), Corey Swint (2026), Ezekiel Herring (2027), Ahmir Barnes (2028), Kadir Battle (2025), Stanley Ledger (2025) and Jules St. Fleur (2027). Running backs Ethan Lopez (2025) and Varian Terry (2026).

On defense, Palmetto had secondary standouts James Orange (2025), Braylen Green (2026), Kevin White Jr. (2026), Wynton Jones (2026), Bryan Joseph Jr. (2025) and Nikolai Moise (2026).

Linebackers Patrick Lawrence (2025) and Jahprece Joseph (2025).
