No. 9 Norland & No. 10 Booker T. Washington Kickoff Week 7

Last season, Miami Norland finished 5-5 and Miami Booker T. Washington ended the year 5-7, including 1-1 in the state playoffs.

When the season ended, both programs were frustrated, knowing that the year could have gone much differently. Both schools committed to getting better.

While the Vikings looked to veteran head coach Daryle Heidelberg to help them get back on track – the Tornadoes reached into their storied past, once again welcoming back Tim “Ice” Harris.

From the time spring started right until the first game of the 2022 season, you could see a change in both programs. New players and coaches on both sides of the ball certainly helped both programs turn things around.

As they head into tonight’s (7:30) showdown at Traz Powell Stadium, everything has indeed changed. Undefeated in four games, Norland comes in with a load of confidence and plenty of talent on both sides of the ball.

For BTW, the No. 10th rated team in south Florida, a 5-1 record and momentum is on their side for this much-anticipated showdown.

From average programs that many paid little attention to a pair of teams that has everyone’s attention, Week 7 gets going in style!

5 Miami-Dade/Broward Prospects To Keep An Eye On

While we continue to give you as many prospects as possible each and every week via our social media, we devote one day during the regular season to spotlight five football players who are making an impact.

For decades, proving exposure for the student/athletes in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties is what we have become known for, and during nearly six decades, we are fortunate to still provide that promotion at no charge.

College coaches have told us throughout the years how valuable or information is to them in this huge recruiting process. Our ability to watch more football players live than any other source is truly something that has garnered a following of over 100,000 social media users on all of pour platforms.

When we rank players, it comes from actually traveling the entire state, giving us a huge advantage of comparing football talent firsthand and not having to rely on tape or listening to what others have to say.

While people continue to call us “old school”,. There is simply nothing that would warrant that statement, other than getting out and seeing football games, practices, camps, combines and 7-on-7 competition with our own eyes.

Once again today, we bring you five more football players that we have watched up close:

2023 - Jordan Faison, QB/Athlete, 5-10, 170, Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest. When you think about versatile football talent, here is someone who comes to mind quickly. This is the leader of a Panther team that has continued to impress, winning four of the first five games this season. His 940 yards and 14 touchdowns on offense, and his three interceptions on the defensive side of the ball only illustrates what this gifted young man brings to the table. In addition to what he does on the football field, his work in the classroom continues to open doors with a 4.3 GPA.

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/12409068/Jordan-Faison

2023 – Kamari Frederick, DT, 6-0, 290, Pompano Beach Blanche Ely. Here is an impressive and dominating player that is perhaps one of the most overlooked and underpublicized student/athletes in south Florida. He controls everything up front with his quickness, strength and knowledge of the position. There are very few offensive linemen who can stop him – and that includes the top teams in the region. Has been one of the main reasons why the Tigers are unbeaten, heading into Week 7! 

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/14687589/Kamari-Federick

2023 – Jason Gabriel, WR, 5-11, 180, North Miami. Having watched this young man at camps, combines and 7-on-7 events during the off-season, you could see how things translate to the playing field. During the regular season, we were fortunate to see this young man perform, and while the Pioneers are a work in progress, this gifted prospect is among the best in the state of Florida. In addition to what he brings to the table on the offensive side of the ball, his work as a defensive back also showcases the talent and versatility. He is also a standout track athlete.

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/15981416/Jason-Gabriel

2024 – Jarvis Johnson, OLB, 6-1, 210, Miami Westminster Christian. On a team that is one of the big surprises this season, here is an underclassman who has already shown what he can do as one of the leading tacklers in the state. He has the ability to control the defensive side of the ball by making plays in the passing game, dropping into coverage as well as rushing the passer. Running on him is not easy at all. The fact that he has another year has the Warriors feeling pretty good.

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/14592856/Jarvis-Johnson

2024 - Jonathan Morillo, QB, 6-1, 175, Pembroke Pines West Broward. From the spring here is a talented football player who showed signs of being an extremely impressive prospect, and it is all proving to be correct. His 1,022 yards and 8 touchdowns through the first half of 2022 has college coaches watching and teammates impressed. Good size, solid arm and the ability to make plays is why the attention is starting to fall in his direction.

American Heritage Makes A Statement

When an article appeared last week that said Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna, Miami Central and Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas separated themselves from the rest of the teams in south Florida, Plantation American Heritage took exception to that statement.

While the Patriots had lost a thriller to Chaminade-Madonna, every player and coach felt that they belonged in that elite group that is south Florida.

On Saturday, first year head coach Mike Smith and his football team traveled to Fort Lauderdale to play Cardinal Gibbons, and by the end of the day, they dominated the key district contest, 21-2, moving to 5-1 and positioning themselves for a key seed when the playoffs begin in November.

Behind Ohio State commitments Brandon Inniss and Mark Fletcher Jr. on offense and senior linebacker David Vadala on defense, the Patriots took control in the second half and secured an afternoon game win.

For the two-time defending state champion Chiefs and head coach Matt Dubuc, it was their first loss of the season as they head back to finish the regular season and position themselves for a solid playoff spot.

In a week that saw some games shift around because of the threat that Hurricane Ian posed to the entire state of Florida, there will be a number of Monday games.

Here is a look at the games this past week involving Miami-Dade and Broward County teams.

NOON SHOWDOWN: No. 4 Cardinal Gibbons & No. 6 American Heritage

It is a rivalry that has been one sided through the years, but over the past five seasons, the matchup has been interesting and filled with plenty of excitement.

When No. 6 Plantation American Heritage (4-1) and No. 4 Cardinal Gibbons (5-0) kick it off today at noon at Cardinal Gibbons, a soldout crowd expects once again a tremendous matchup of two of the state’s top teams.

A game that had been moved a day because of Hurricane Ian, this contest is one where state championship pedigree will be on display as both are chasing a dream in the newly formed Class 3M.

The winner of this afternoon’s contest will certainly have an upped hand as the race for DRV PNK Stadium is on for head coach Mike Smith and his Patriots and head coach Matt Dubuc and the two-time defending state champion Chiefs.

Between the two teams, they have brought home five state titles in the past five seasons, and while the Patriots come in as a road favorite, this game has always featured the unexpected.
