There is no getting around the heavy hearts that will be mourning the tragic loss of head coach Eddie Frasier this coming season.
From family, friends, players, fellow coaches and the entire Dillard High School community, the hurt that is still inside everyone is something that will take months and months to ease.
At a time when this entire world is being challenged every day, fighting through this horrific pandemic, football seems so very far away.
Having to spend time in our homes, away from those friends and teammates that could help fight through the pain, this is something that your worst nightmare could never produce. Not losing a community icon at 34 years of age.
This is certainly a time when we find out a lot about ourselves.
PLAYER: Nyjalik Kelly
SCHOOL: Fort Lauderdale Dillard
SCOUTING: When Coach Frasier spoke about his football team’s chances for the 2020 season, he spoke some of the veteran players coming back. But he also talked about the young athletes that represented the future of this program.
In Kelly, you have the future of the Panthers. An underclassman who showed his skills a year ago and followed that up with a very productive off season that put him in front of college coaches, recruiting services and those who can truly determine what an athlete’s future may be.
What was uncovered is a gifted talent who has what it takes to make a difference. Long arms, quickness and football skills that we have seen on this campus in the past.
A gifted football talent who is indeed drawing interest from so many colleges who see what this young man will bring to the table for years to come.
As this pandemic has stopped so many in their tracks, Kelly has a chance to be someone – when we emerge from this quarantine – to be a prospect that will continue to receive interest from across the nation.
