No matter where you go in the state of Florida - throughout the course of a year - and we are fortunate to see thousands of prospects, there is going to be talent. Big time football players.
While many rate players without seeing them perform live – at any event – what they miss are those little things that film does not illustrate nor promote.
By now, we all know the teams who are considered as favorites to either get to the state finals or make a solid playoff run.
What we are not familiar with are those programs, considered by many of the experts not to be a factor when the season started, but are very much alive and well as we head toward Week No. 8 of the season.
Over the first six weeks of the 2021 high school football season, fans across south Florida have had plenty to be excited about.
Every week, there are enough marquee games to keep the attention of football fans across the region.
When the Northwestern Bulls left Traz Powell Stadium after last Friday loss to rival Miami Central, the focus had to be squarely on Norland.
While the Vikings (2-3) are not going to throw fear into the opposition, the fact that junior running back Javin Simpkins is expected back, is enough for any team not take the Vikings lightly.
Look around south Florida and you will see talent. Football prospects, who have continued to carry on the rich tradition, that have made an impact – every week during this season.
We are watching athletes this year who have made a difference. Players that have stepped up their game – even at a young age – and that is indeed the story.
