As we have said over and over again about former professional athletes who call south Florida home, they have long raised the talent level in all sports.
Because their children grow up and compete in leagues with high level talent and continue to elevate the football that is played from Florida City to Deerfield Beach and everywhere in between, we see athletes that are learning this game from those who have been to that next level and beyond.
With many former professional football players helping to teach and instruct prospects, the football in south Florida continues to be among the best in the country. Add in the fact that the tremendous youth programs and coaches are elite and it’s a winning combination.
PLAYER: Earl Little Jr.
SCHOOL: Plantation American Heritage
SCOUTING: Ever since he put on a uniform, this was someone who was destined to play this game – and do it at a high level.
Following in the footsteps of his father – a one-time standout at North Miami High, University of Miami and in the NFL, there was no getting around the fact that his bloodlines were very much in place.
While his father never pushed him, he was always there to teach and be that motivator that all parents are in their children’s lives.
What has happened over he past two seasons with the Patriots is Little has proven that he is one of the elite defensive secondary performers around. He has grown and matured into a very impressive underclassman who has college offers and plenty of interest from schools all over the country.
Little is a tremendous cover corner – with knowledge, speed and plenty of talent and athleticism. At the same time, he is a physical presence as a safety too, which is giving colleges an opportunity to recruit and use him at a number of positions.
With the 2020 season getting ready to unfold, he will be one of the players that will be a huge catalyst for a team that narrowly missed out on getting back to the state title game.
