Gustavo Bravo, 6’1, 250,DT,2023,Cypress Bay @gustavobravo66
Bravo is a 6-1, 250 player that can be huge in the trenches for the Cypress Bay defensive unit. Bravo is built like a tank and is a major enforcer, one of those big men that loves to throw ball carriers to the ground and is one of the most physically imposing domniaters in the 2023 class. Gives the Lightning a big time play maker that has some huge power and toughness and reads plays fast and reacts quickly, add in his 320 bench and you have major power and all out aggressive football coming from Bravo.
Kamari Federick, 5’11, 290,DT,2023,Deerfield Beach @TmKamariF
Federick is a very impressive looking athlete and a player that can really make some big time noise in the trenches for the Deerfield Beach program. 5-11, 290, big frame and is tough to block against and uses his hands well and leverage to take the upper hand and claim his space over blocks he faces.
Jason Hammond, 6’3, 280,DT,2023,St. Thomas Aquinas @JasonHammondJR
Elite in all ways, D1s are beating down the door at a chance to get Hammond on their teams and they should be with his impressive power and toughness in the trenches at St. Thomas Aquinas. Hammond is a big man that had 30 tackles in nine games this year and battled through some injuries but will be back and ready for a huge final 2022 senior season at Aquinas. Hammond racked up a big West Virginia offer in December, his latest and a school that would be a great fit for this big man’s power game.
Griffin Johnston, 6’3, 230,DE/DT,2023, Monarch @GriffinJohnsto9
A very impressive play maker that can lineup at either DE or DT, Johnston is impressive for both speed and power, and has a rare motor that never stops on the Monarch defense. A major pressure player, Johnston really was hard to handle and block in 2021 and racked up a big time eight game total of 4.5 sacks, included were two strip sacks, also a major turnover player that is always around the ball making huge plays happen, had four tackles for losses. Huge senior year expected from this elite talent coming up.
Jacob Karmin, 6’2, 240,DE,2023,Pine Crest@Jkarmin2023
Karmin is a very impressive looking athlete from Pine Crest, this ‘23 big man at 6-2, 240 is a hot DE prospect that had a good looking junior campaign. Karmin racked up a 10 game total of37 tackles, 19 solo and 18 assisted with four tackles for losses and 3.7 tackles per game. A play maker that was tough and physical and a player that was fifth on the team on tackles and had the second most tackles among underclassmen on Pine Crest defenders.
Jayden Massey, 6’1, 225,DL/LB, 2023,Cardinal Gibbons @jaydenMassey954
Massey is one of those very impressive looking athletes, really going to be a big senior season ahead for one of the top speed play makers that can play both backer and DL for Plantation. Massey was a huge help and impact maker in the 9-2 Plantation HS record this year with 40 tackles, and a major disruptor, Massey had 3 fumble recoveries, 3 pass deflections, and a pair of fumbles forced. Massey one of the most complete looking prospects in the Broward Area.
Brock Moskowitz, 5’10, 250,DL/OL,2023,Stoneman Douglas @BrockMoskowitz
Moskowitz is a good looking bulked up 250 pounder from the Stoneman Douglas program and a two way standout that has some impressive talent to take notice of. Brock has impressed us with his quickness and footwork on the line and is a player that is very fundamentally sound and smart on the way he approaches the game. Good looking player that should be a key impact maker among the big men in the program for a big senior year in 2022.

Justin Rampal, DE,2023,Flanagan @Justingoat931
Rampal is a very promising up and coming junior from Flanagan and a player that is tough coming on the defensive edge for the Flanagan defensive unit. One of those speed play making defensive ends, Rampal has a very lean and athletic looking frame and could be of of the top play makers in the coming year, has the athletic skills and speed to be a good talent and senior name to know there.
Zakaih Saez, 6’5, 220,DE,2023,St. Thomas Aquinas @Zakaih_15
This September commit to Florida State no doubt is just as good as they come, a play maker that can blow up a play time and time again with big time speed and big time power, could be the most impressive power pass rusher in Florida, the Seminoles have grabbed another huge talent and a guy that should be a huge force fore the maroon and gold as well, guy has been a major athlete that is unmatched for talent and speed on the football field. Had 32 tackles in 2021 and will be a great senior to watch make more huge plays in 2022.
Travis Wilson, 6’1, 290,DT,2023,Stranahan@Travalwayslive
Travis has some of the best big man size in the Broward area at 6-1, 290 he is a pure beast of the trenches that claims his space and is big as a bull rushing machine in the trenches at Stranahan. Wilson is a big man that can make a lot of turnovers happen, a great pressure man always in the QBs face, tough and bigger, bulky and impressive, Wilson is a play maker that is smart and a huge talent with violent hands and a guy that can take on multiple blocks and make huge tackles happen.
