SUMMARY: For longtime football fans, it’s been awhile since championship talk has filtered around Little Haiti.
Not that the Red Raiders haven’t been competitive through the years and have turned out their share of elite athletes, but getting enough of them to compete against south Florida powers has not been an easy task.
After upseting Miami Carol City last year and advancing to the state playoffs, beating Miami Westminster Christian and dropping a tough contest to Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian Academy, this is a program that community icon and head coach Luther Campbell believes that this is a team that can accomplish some big things in 2020.
While there are plenty of younger prospects in this program, the success this coming year will revolve around experienced seniors – some were part of the program this past season – while others are coming in to help infuse this talented group.
In addition to the new faces on a new football field that had a late winter grand opening, the coaching staff has also been revamped at that is certainly something that has a chance to make the real difference.
As this program waits like every other school in the state of Florida to get back to work, the optimism still runs high in a neighborhood that is anxious to see a very gifted football team.
