West Broward Building On 2023 Success

Moments after the Pembroke Pines West Broward football team dropped a first-round state playoff game in 2023 to Homestead South Dade, head coach Brian McCartney and his football program looked toward the next season.

Coming off a district championship, the Bobcats realized that if they were to make it to that next level, this would have to become a year-round commitment that every player would need to buy into.

With a top-flight prospect like receiver Joshua Moore (WR, 6-3, 190) becoming the centerpiece for this team, every prospect would have the chance to showcase their skills with colleges – of all levels – coming by to watch games and practice.

With a productive off-season and a positive spring, the summer begins and like last year, you can expect every player to have the opportunity to compete on a large stage, and have media, recruiting services and college coaches taking notice and promoting those who are improving and reaching their potential.

Beside Moore, the rising seniors (2025) class will have plenty of talent – with Elijah DeWoskin (RB, 5-10, 195 – 4.4 GPA), Nicholas Ion (OT, 6-2, 290), Pembroke Pines Flanagan transfer Franklyn Johnson Jr. (TE, 6-1, 220 – 3.0 GPA), Christian Jones (RB, 5-8, 195), Tristan Lewis (DE, 6-3, 215), Andon Marrero (WR, 6-2, 180), Joel Martin (OL), Matthew Martindale (WR/OLB, 5-10, 180), and Hollywood Hills transfer Dylan Pelliccio (QB, 6-2, 210).

The other Class of 2025 players to keep an eye on include Zaheed Pierre (CB, 5-11, 175 – 3.1 GPA), Alexander Piedra (LB/DE, 5-10, 210), Kelvin Reyes (WR/FS, 6-1, 180), Plantation American Heritage transfer Tyler Shattuck (QB, 6-2, 195), Elijah Testamark (RB, 5-11, 209), and receiver Randy Vazquez (6-2, 178 – 3.4 GPA).


As potent as the Class of 2025 will be, the rising junior class (2026) will also be impressive with Chase Barrett (DB, 5-8, 135), Nathan Dunhoft (OL, 5-11, 210), Chaminade-Madonna transfer Bryan Granger (OL, 6-3, 260), Uryah McCartney (LB), Walter Odon II (WR, 5-11, 165), state-rated Trace Poncev (K, 5-8, 155 – 4.0 GPA), Alexandro Schmitt (DL, 6-5, 240), Nate Silvestre (QB, 6-0, 170 – 4.5 GPA), Braedon Svaboda (LB, 5-4, 135), and versatile Quincy Walker (OLB/DE, 6-0, 180). Also look out for Class of 2027 (rising sophomore) Marco Lopez (DE/OLB, 5-10, 185).
