For every star-rated athlete that is out there, receiving attention and college scholarship offers, there are 50 times the amount who are not at that level and need the exposure.
There is a reality that there is indeed a place for everyone who wants to compete in football at the next level. That’s why it’s important to shine the spotlight on those student/athletes who are not Power 5 or high FBS programs.
That is why each and every week, we make sure that that light is shining bright on prospects in all classes throughout the state of Florida.
Up to 30 football players – from Key West to Pensacola and everywhere in between have a chance to get their film out and their names for all to see. That is something we do and have done for over 6 decades, and it will not stop now.
The purpose of this website is to give you information – while showcasing athletes at every level. Not just concentrating on the star-rated and much-hyped athletes.
Today, we are back in the Class of 2022, checking out some more juniors who have an opportunity to jump on the radar screen.
Preston Brown, OC, Fort Walton Beach. Here is a 6-2, 265-pounder who is ready to make a huge statement this year. Opens holes, sustains blocks and is willing to work hard to improve every phase of his game. College coaches are already impressed at how he comes off the ball on running plays and what he does to provide pass protection. This young man’s motor never stops.
Gabe McLamb, OG/DE, Jacksonville Bishop Kenny. This is a worker. There is no other way to slice it. He is out there to learn, get better and make a statement and he has already proven that. His off season has only enhanced his standing, and as the season progresses, you can guarantee that this will be a name many will start to hear about. Quick off the ball on either side of the line, strong and very athletic. One of those talents that has a motor that never stops. You have to love a player like this.
Stephen Scroggins, LB/OL, West Palm Beach The King’s Academy. Coming off a 10-sack season, here is yet another tremendous football player that this program continues to churn out each and every season. He is always around the ball – no matter if it’s on passing downs or as a run stopper. He plays with a lot of passion and does not stop until the whistle blows. Tremendous tackler who has learned how to drop into pass coverage as well. Definitely a prospect to keep an eye on.
Riley Stevens, QB, St. Augustine. This is a program that traditionally develops quarterbacks, and this is a prospect who fits right into the mold. Size, field awareness and a feel for the offense. His quick release and accuracy are two things that will help him develop into a big time prospect this coming season. With two full years left, and a solid work ethic, this is not the last time you will hear from this gifted football talent.
Kendrick Wooden Jr., RB, Gainesville PK Yonge. Making the move from Eastside, this is a future standout who will have the opportunity to make a serious impact this coming season. Quick, elusive and tremendous vision helps this quality talent get the job done. A tremendous line from scrimmage runner with superb vision and amazing balance. This is definitely a prospect to keep an eye on. He is only going to get better as he plays more. Solid talent who is going to jump on the radar screen in 2020.
