Battle of The Unbeatens: Fort Lauderdale & Blanche Ely Clash Tonight

Battle of The Unbeatens: Fort Lauderdale & Blanche Ely Clash Tonight

At the start of the 2022 season if anyone told you that one of the big Week 6 matchups in south Florida would be Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach Blanche Ely, you may not have taken them too seriously.

But as Hurricane Ian has ravaged the state and altered several games in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, the No. 13 Flying Ls (4-0) and No. 16 Tigers (3-0) will clash this evening in a game that had certainly earned the spotlight.

For head coach Richard Dunbar and his Fort Lauderdale team, things have been moving along quite well over the past five seasons – as players and coaches have worked hard to make this season a reality.

Among some of the top seniors so far this season are Pat Boyd (WR), Jermarri Watson (WR), Ernest Joseph (RB), King Williams (LB/RB), Jalyn Jackson (Athlete), Monroe Allen (OLB/DE), John Alcime (DL), Athlete Za’mario Dunrod, T.J. Nelson (QB) and quarterback Luca Foerch.

The junior class has also been impressive - with receiver Keyveon Johnson, Remington Roberts (DB), Semaj McClain (OLB/DE), Elijah Bernard-Blue (CB) and safety/linebacker Celci Simons.

Sophomore running back Christian Bailey has also been impressive.

TIGERS RESTORING THE “ROAR”

When Mike Bailey took over as head coach of Blanche Ely, the one thing he promised was his team would play hard and take each game one at a time.

Despite having a few games postponed, he leads his Tigers into this evening’s game with plenty of optimism.

Among the top players so far this season in the senior class are impressive defensive secondary performer Harlem Howard, quarterback Nah’coy Daniels, outside linebacker Javin Farley, running back Cedric Ward, running back Ke’Shawn Jones, offensive lineman Roscoe Harris and defensive linemen Rackwon Pericles and Kamari Fredrick.

Juniors have also played a key role – with Marcel Williams (WR) and running back Edward McIntosh III.

Phase 3 Kicking (P3K) & 4th Down University Spotlight Special Teams

What happens when two outstanding special teams coaches and instructors get together to run an event? 

The answer is simple. A success. 

When Chris Husby and Dan Lundy got together at Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons to run the South Florida Special Teams Camp, it was a meeting of two highly successful coaches with a passion to elevate kickers, punters and long snappers.

For Husby, a Minnesota-based instructor who runs the Special Teams Football Academy, www.Phase3Kicking.com and is the co-founder of the National Kicking Rankings, the opportunity to bring his event to south Florida was something that he had looked forward to.

Phase 3 Kicking (P3K) was developed to meet industry and collegiate demand for a competition-based evaluation platform for kickers, punters, and long snappers. 

After months of research, they developed an improved state-of-the-art competition format camp that has produced a better assessment and feedback to compare special teams performers’ current abilities to data from all division levels of college football.  

“No more are the days of guessing how good you are,” Husby explained.  “Our patent-pending 'Specialist Algorithm' © is giving an accurate assessment of how prepared you are to perform at the next level of football.”

They are able to individually compare kicks and punts to a REAL college game standard. This will give them the confidence to rank high in college football recruiting rankings.

Coach Lundy - Founder of 4th Down University (https://4thdownu.com/– has been instrumental in the state of Florida in helping to developing special teams prospects for high school and college.

4th Down University’s provides unparalleled training and instruction for coaches, kickers, punters, and snappers.

“Our clients learn to prepare, train, compete, and execute through an objective, technical and tactical curriculum,” Lundy said. “In 19 years, dozens of 4DU clients play in the NFL and over 100 have earned college scholarships, many earning All American and All Conference honors.”

SOUTH FLORIDA EVENT ATTRACTS SOME TALENTED PROSPECTS

There were some outstanding specialists who took part in the event, showcasing the talent that Florida has to offer – in each class.

Jacksonville Atlantic Coast senior kicker Kristian Karoglan came in first in kicking – with Plantation American Heritage first-year senior Wylie Shaw coming in second and Davie Western junior Kristian Hobbs finishing third.

Here is a look at some of the other kickers on hand:

2023

Jeffrey Hernandez (Coconut Creek)

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

As we move into Week 6, there are so many football prospects that still haven’t had the opportunity to jump on that important radar screen.

While the off-season was productive, it is never enough – especially with so many players who are searching for the attention needed to help land college assistance, and that in this crazy economy, is essential for so many young men who play this sport.

Throughout the course of a year, we bring you more players than any one source – because our objective is not to spotlight the star-rated athletes, but also include prospects that may not be names that many are throwing around.

It's all about exposure and we have 5 more to pass your way on this Wednesday:

2023 – Cole Baird, DE, 6-5, 230, Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian Academy. One of those smaller school prospects that may not get the attention that some of the other athletes do, but once you watch him perform, it is a no brainer that it truly does not matter where he plays and who he goes up against. Quick off the ball, this is someone who plays this game with plenty of passion. He reads plays very well and when college coaches spend more time watching him, they will see a very smart young man who not only gets it done on the field, but also in the classroom where his 1210 SAT illustrates why he is so highly regarded.

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/11982595/Cole-Baird

2023 - Marcus Dixon, FB/DE, 6-0, 205, Coconut Creek North Broward Prep. Don’t let this two-way football prospect fool you. His running style is one of a power back who is quicker than many believe. Great vision and has the ability to get out of the backfield to catch the ball. His blocking skills will certainly become attractive to college coaches looking for that kind of back. Fullback or running back, he can be used at both positions on offense – as well as playing a linebacker or even as a defensive end.

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/13376692/Marcus-Dixon

2024 - Kareem Glass, WR, 5-10, 170, Miami Coral Park. During the summer at several stops that the Rams made, first year head coach Vernon Wilder III talked about several prospects that he was excited about. Here is one of them. Just a junior, this a versatile receiver who will play outside, the slot and is valuable on “jet sweep” plays, showcasing his quickness and vision. Turns short gains into something that has helped this team get off to an impressive 3-1 start. College coaches are starting to see what he brings to the table – and will continue watching.

TAPE: https://www.hudl.com/profile/18151377/Kareem-Glass

2024 – Jose Leon, WR, 5-10, 170, Miami Christopher Columbus. Talk about prospects who have blown up this season. If you’ve never watched this quality playmaker you are missing someone who is among the best in south Florida. You heard that right. This is a receiver who is fast (4.56 – 40), runs outstanding routes and has gotten it done against some top competition. Just a junior, this impressive talent not only makes an impact on the field as a go-to player, but has been equally as sound in the classroom where he holds down a 3.6 GPA.
TAPE:
https://www.hudl.com/profile/14390348/Jose-Leon

2023 FLORIDA FOOTBALL PROSPECT WATCH: Levy Miller, RB, 5-9, 170, South Miami. This five-year varsity starter continues to fly way beneath the radar – as a runner who continues to pile up the yards and help the Cobras make some major strides. Has always had a burst of speed and great vision. While college coaches already know about him, he has matured and become a better all-around back.
