Lorenzo Beggs, 6’2, 150,WR,2023,Pompano Beach @LorenzoBeggs
Beggs is a very impressive looking athlete in the class of 2023, a bigger 6-2 with some speed on the outside and a nice target down the field for the Pompano Beach offense. Beggs is a very lean and athletic play maker that gets himself into some great spots to make key catches, and is one of those players that makes the most athletic list for his wheels and abilities to shake defenders off and get open, add to that his 6-2 inch frame and Beggs has the makings of becoming a major name to know with a big senior season in 2022 expected. Led the team in receiving yards with 568 and scored seven TDs with a 63.1 per game average and a 29,9 per catch average.
Tyrique Gordon, 6’1, 170,ATH, 2023,Coral Springs @Tyriquegordon14
Gordon is a very talented play maker that can play all over the field for Coral Springs and should be a key impact maker again in a big senior season come 2022. Gordon has a good frame, some height also at 6-1 inches tall, his speed has been impressive as well. Tyrique is a play maker that can also be a good hands play maker, RB and WR on offense and on defense is a key secondary speed athlete at both corner, and free or strong safety.
Griffin Johnston, 6’3, 230,DE/DT,2023, Monarch @GriffinJohnsto9
In looking at play makers on the defensive line that really standout as impressive athletes one of the key names to know in the Broward area is Monarch’s Griffin Johnston, a 6-3, 230 well in length and power combo that can play both end and DT. Griffin had 4.5 sacks on the year, one of the area’s best at being a key pressure rush end and lineman to know, Johnston has been one of the hardest DL to block in the area and is a very talented big man to have on the hot radar list.
TeKai Kirby, 6’4, 200,TE, 2023,St. Thomas Aquinas @TeKai_Kirby
Kirby is one of the most highly touted players in the Broward area and a great sized 6-4, 200 solid TE prospect from the great Aquinas program. TeKai is a big and nice target at TE, very hard to defend against and is one of those players that has the size and frame to be a great one entering his senior year ahead. No doubt a great target, soft hands and a player that gets to his spot and then can be a great target and weapon to watch out for in the middle of the field. His size and hands make him one of the most impressive TEs in the junior class of Broward.

Ryan Mickow, 6’6, 300,OL,2023, St. Thomas Aquinas @MickowRyan
Making our list as the lone lineman here, Mickow is a one of a kind package for being a good looking athlete, and at 6-6, 300 is really a good mover in the trenches with D1 get me know size and strength. Mickow could be the most agile and athletic Guard in Florida and has proven at camps and on the field his pure movement is impressive with his big time frame for D1 football. Has a great power game also, lower body is elite for strength and is a player that is very good when you look at his blocking skills and fundamentals, does a great job of keeping his man in front of him and out of the play and is big and physical enough to dominate on each and every play.

Aidan Norcius, 5’11, 168,WR,2023,Dillard @AidanNorcius3
Norcius is one of the most impressive deep ball threats in the Broward football scene out of Dillard High, love his wheels and hands in the open field, no doubt has that extra gear of speed that most WRs don’t have and has proven to be one of he hardest targets down the field to cover for the Dillard offense. Big time talented at running routes and is very aggressive with his hands and on defense no doubt is one impressive cover man and holds an offer from Florida Valley Prep.
Armani Norcius , 5’10, 165,QB,2023,Dillard @NorciusArmani
One of those guys that has been a major game changer at the QB spot and always one of the top play making athletes on the football field is this impressive looking athlete from Dillard High.5-10, 165, Norcius was offered by Florida Memorial and no doubt should be heavily recruited in 2022 with another big year following up a nice junior year in which he passed for 1,511 yards, had 22 passing Touchdowns, 137 yards rushing yards, and had 1 rushing touchdown. Is 18-2 as a starter and helped Dillard to a 2020 Tri-County title. Norcius reports 3.8 GPA in the classroom as well.
Eddie Rodriguez, Jr., 5’11, 165,WR,2023,South Broward @eddiejr2x
Rodriguez is one of the class of 2023 WR prospects that is a good one to know at South Broward High and a play maker that we think is going to have a big season ahead in 2022. Eddie has very quick feet in the open field and is a play maker that gets open with his speed. Averaged over 30 yards per game receiving on the year for South Broward and scored a pair of touchdowns, no doubt with his speed and hands, the future looks bright in 2022 for a big senior season ahead for Eddie.
Xavier Terrell, 5’8,175, ATH,2023,St. Thomas Aquinas @XavierSTerrell1
Terrell is a very impressive looking play maker and athlete to know from the Aquinas program, one of those players that can rack up some huge gains on offense with his speed and upfield vision. Xavier could be the most exciting runner with the football in his hands in Florida, not big, but when you have his moves and speed that does not matter, very hard to tackle in space, great footwork with great vision and can stop and go as well as any runner in the state of Florida. Had 597 rushing yards this year with nine touchdowns in 11 games and averaged 11.9 yards per carry on his 50 carries.

David Vadala, 5’10, 210, MLB,2023,St. Thomas Aquinas @DavidVadala52
Vadala is one of the major standouts at linebacker, this outside play maker is one of the top defensive speed athletes in the area and has really taken off as a hot prospect in the area for talent and closing speed at Aquinas. Vadala, who had 39 tackles in his 11 games this year no doubt has gained lots of D1 attention, and he visited Michigan and has been (offered) over the summer and was also offered by Syracuse as well, along with Texas A&M, Maryland and this list will get bigger and bigger. Also a standout wrestler, Vadala was the Broward County freshmen Defensive POY and is a two-time MaxPreps All-American.
