QUICK HITS: Mater Academy Will Field A Young, But Impressive Team This Coming Season

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”.

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.
