The program has been around five years – and after a 2022 season that watched head coach Greg Laffere’s team finish 9-4, which included the first ever District & Regional championship, 2023 was indeed something that everyone looked forward to.
This program will be loaded with a mix of veteran and youth prospects.

Among the prospects to keep an eye on are:
2024 - Clifton Brown III
Here is a transfer who can play on both sides of the ball. He’s looking to have an immediate impact as he is looking to build off a strong spring. Cliff currently has interest from Pittsburgh.
2024 - Erick Hernandez
At 6-4, 275, Hernandez is a transfer that will be a big-time recruit when it’s all said and done.
2027 - Zac Katz
One of the top passers in the class of 2027 made a name for himself in 2022 as an 8th grader passing for 2,847 yards with 34 touchdowns and completing his passing attempts with an eye opening 75%. Zac is known for his big arm, but he will tuck it and run as he rushed for 206 yards and with 2 Touchdowns. Katz currently holds verbal offers from Appalachian State, FIU, Bethune Cookman & Western Michigan.
2026 - Jasen Lopez
“JROC” is by far one of the most dynamic receivers in the class of 2026. He is a playmaker,
who already has posted big time numbers in two years with 97 receptions 2,504 all-purpose yards & 22 touchdowns. The connection between Katz & Lopez will be fun to watch for the next couple of years. Lopez currently holds offers from Tennessee, West Virginia, FIU, Bethune Cookman & Western Michigan.
2024 - Stephen McCloud
A four-year starter, McCloud is a team captain. Last season, he finished with 45 tackles and 4
2024 - Reed Ramirez
Ramirez is an offensive weapon that not only plays the tight end position but will line up outside at wide receiver. When needing a first down, this is one of the most reliable players on the football field. He currently holds an offer from Ave Maria and interest from Stetson University.
2024 - Joshua Reyes
Going into his senior season this might be the best one yet. In his sophomore and junior years, he posted over 1,000 all-purpose yards. It didn’t matter if he was lining up at running back or at receivers opposing defenses had to account for him. Joshua currently has verbal offers from North Carolina Central & Stetson University.
2027 - Michael Solomon
Solomon is a fierce defender who flies to the ball. He finished last season with 32 tackles and 2 sacks.
2027 - Dominic Turnbull
Turnbull is a 6-2,170-pound defensive back, who is following in the footsteps of his father, who starred at FIU and in the NFL. He can lock down the opposing team’s top receiving threat. He currently holds offers from University of Michigan, University of Miami, University of Central Florida, Ole Miss, Alcorn, Syracuse, University of Minnesota, Western Michigan & Toledo.
