Sometimes a change of location can do an athlete good. And, while it doesn’t always work out, there are times when it does – and it’s a win/win for the student/athlete that football prospects heads to.
In south Florida, there are so many athletes – especially in the defensive secondary – that there is often not room at one position or another – and as athletes are always looking for playing time – there are instances making a move will actually work out.

During the course of a year, we bring you Prospect Spotlights on players throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
These are athletes who are being recruited by colleges and universities throughout the nation.
In this day and age of high school football, being the “total package” is something that is hard to find.
But what is the “total package” when it comes to a 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grader? Isn’t that a phrase that is reserved for a college player or even someone who is competing at the professional level?
When we hand out any kind of labels or tags in any sport, it often comes from an impression made – and while it is usually related to athletic performance – sometimes it does include character, work in the classroom and being an outstanding teammate.
When it comes to the state of Florida, you will find that our athletes are just that – athletes.
While they may play football, baseball and basketball as a primary sport, that doesn’t mean that they don’t compete in other arenas at the school. In fact, it is essential that our student/athletes play more than one sport to help teams win.
In south Florida, football prospects will either run track, play basketball, wrestle or just about any other activity that will keep them competitive and sharp. It has long been that way, but never spotlighted.
By seeing football talent perform live in camps, combines, 7-on-7 tryouts, practices and games has given us a major advantage in covering football for half a century.
Bringing you the prospects that don’t have the stars next to their names has earned us a reputation of uncovering more talent that the average person just does not know about.
