While the Coronavirus is dictating high school football, across the country, we can understand the need for ongoing exposure.
Because we promote high school football in south Florida year-round, there is no need to stop right now.
In the coming weeks, we will have a brief look at the school in south Florida in a segment that we call “QUICK HITS”.
Today, our “QUICK HITS” stays in Miami-Dade County with a look at Mater Academy.

Summary: While this program is still rebounding and building from a mass exodus of student/athletes following the 2018 season, progress has been made.
There are some junior and senior leaders who are ready to step up and take a leadership role – as they gained experience a year ago.
The job that this coaching staff has done is amazing, helping to build confidence as they are putting in the time to develop prospects – at every level.
Although the year didn’t go as planned, they were able to successfully navigate a grueling schedule with an extremely young and inexperienced roster of players, who competed at the varsity level.
Remember, this is a program that has competed at a high level in the past – and there is a feeling that it will happen again in the coming years.
One look at the roster and you will see plenty of potential – and that is something that could fuel this program moving forward.
