As many areas across the country have plenty of great stories from star football talent, it seems that south Florida may have more than most.
As everyone knows, the talent level and depth in this region of the country is like no other – it plays out every year.
Many standouts who enjoy brilliant youth careers and move on to the next level often find that there are so many gifted prospects getting reps is not a given.
This is a region of the country that boasts eight first round NFL draft picks the past two years, so having talent is fine, but there is also an understanding that there are several high level football players who also have talent.
PLAYER: Darius Chester
SCHOOL: Miami Edison
SCOUTING: This was a youth phenom that everyone predicted great things for – and while he has been at Killian, Jackson and Carol City, he has found a home with head coach Luther Campbell and the much improved Red Raiders.
This is a top-flight back who was rated as one of the best youth running backs in the nation – and as the 2020 season looms on the horizon, he will be given an opportunity to show why colleges and fellow players are impressed with his running style and work ethic.
This is a power back who has speed and is durable, and that’s why college coaches have followed him since his 9th grade season. He is not easy to bring down, and with his power and speed, this is future collegiate standout who hopes to lead the Red Raiders to a place where they haven’t been for a long time.
While many fans have not had the opportunity to watch him perform, and only watched film, they are in for something big. When Chester gets the chance to prove what he can do – watch out! He is for real, and we will all see that this coming year.
