SPRING FOCUS – Northwestern Ready To Get Back To State Finals

When the 5A state championships were held last December in Tallahassee, one very familiar face was missing.

Having been a three-time defending state champion, many felt that the Bulls and head coach Max Edwards would make it a fourth consecutive trip to state – and of course – another win.

Losing 12-3 in the second round of the state playoffs to eventual state champion, Plantation American Heritage, this program would finish 3-2.

Never once blaming the 2020 season on a pandemic that turned the world upside down, it was a given that of this program was going to make a return to the state championship game, things would have to fall into place.

When the classification was announced, the Bulls found themselves moving up to 6A – away from American Heritage and longtime rival Miami Central, who are 5A.

With spring bringing this program back together, there is a feeling that this program is ready to finish the business that was ended in Plantation last November.

If this team is going to make noise in 2021, it will start with the Class of 2022.

Prospects such as Homestead transfer Adrian Harris III (WR, 6-0 -2.57 GPA), nationally-rated receiver Andy Jean (6-2 – 2.8 GPA), Hallandale transfer Daverrick Jenkins (WR, 6-3 – 2.65 GPA), three-year offensive line starter Tellek Lockette (6-3 – 3.55 GPA) and athletic Jalen Rodgers (5-11 – 3.0 GPA) are football players that colleges have been after.

Other rising seniors that the Bulls will count on includes standout kicker Giancarlo Abbate (5-10 – 3.1 GPA), Robert Beneby (DB, 5-11 – 2.5 GPA), Jamison Brown OL, 5-8 – 3.1 GPA), Jamarie Casimar (OL, 6-2 – 2.55 GPA), Jael Cuellar (DB, 5-10, - 2.75 GPA), Richard Gooden (OL, 6-2), Derrmaury Jackson (OL, 6-4 – 2.6 GPA) and running back Clayvon Leader (5-9 – 3.0 GPA), Darveed Lollar (OL, 6-4 – 2.55 GPA), Dylan Milbry (LB/DE, 6-2 – 2.65 GPA), Anjulius Minor (DB, 6-3 – 2.5 GPA), Davon Nelson (DL, 5-9, - 2.56 GPA), Prince Richard (DL, 6-2 – 2.7 GPA) and defensive line Andy Scantlebury (5-10, - 2.5 GPA).

The Bulls will also have Jamari Sharpe (WR, 6-2 – 2.5 GPA), Dilkharri Sims (LB, 5-10 – 2.65 GPA), Prentiss Stouall (DL, 5-11 – 2.55 GPA), Camron Thompson (RB, 5-9 – 2.65 GPA) and defensive lineman Damario Worthy (6-5 – 2.6 GPA).

UNDERCLASS IS LOADED WITH TALENT

As every Northwestern team is, the 2021 version will also be loaded with young prospects, who are already making a major difference.

Class of 2023 headliners such as two-year quarterback starter Taron Dickens (QB, 5-11 – 2.5 GPA), versatile and talented P.J. Faulk (TE/H-Back, 6-3 – 2.9 GPA) and Miami Booker T. Washington speedster Jamari Ford (Athlete, 5-7 – 3.0 GPA).

In addition, keep an eye on Epahan Augustin (DB, 5-10 – 2.56 GPA), Tramaine Brown (Athlete, 5-11 – 2.5 GPA), Tecorrey Carey (LB/DE, 6-1 – 3.0 GPA), Martin Cochran (RB, 5-10 – 2.65 GPA), Rashad Davis (WR, 5-11 – 3.0 GPA), Dwayne Escoffery (LB/DE, 6-4 – 2.5 GPA) and gifted offensive lineman Antonio Flovil (6-3 – 2.5 GPA).

The Bulls will also have Kareem Maycock (LB, 5-11 – 3.0 GPA), Phillip Mikle Jr. (DL, 6-2 – 2.55 GPA), Cornell Mims (WR, 5-7 – 3.2 GPA), Darryl Pender (DB, 5-8 – 2.66 GPA), Jamie Pickette (LB, 5-10 – 2.5 GPA), Kennard Thomas (DL, 6-2), Nazir Ward (DB, 6-0 – 2.56 GPA) and defensive lineman Matthew Williams (5-11 – 2.6 GPA).

The talent continues to get deeper with a look at the rising sophomores in the Class of 2024.

Keep an eye on Tramaine Carson (DL, 6-3 – 2.56 GPA), Delvin Martin (LB, 5-10 – 2.65 GPA), Michael Robleto (DL, 6-3 – 2.57 GPA), Leroy Taylor (LB/DE, 6-1 – 2.5 GPA) and linebacker Felix Ward (5-11 – 2.5 GPA).
