WATCH LIST | Young Broward-area DB/S Prospects raising profile (2024-25) – We take a look at some of the best and most impressive play makers coming up in the 2024-2025 classes, some of the elite sophomore and freshman defensive backs that are built for speed and major coverage guys. Bryant of Calvary Christian is one of those big time looking play makers, a long and rangy 6-2 athlete at corner in the ‘24 class.
Prospects can register for the upcoming Six Star Football Florida Showcase at the link. This event will be held on Saturday, Jan. 29 at Somerset Academy Canyons in Boynton Beach.
Allen Bryant, 6’2”, 160,CB,2024, Calvary Christian @Br6Allen
A very impressive looking up and coming sophomore from Calvary Christian, bigger frame also at 6-2 inches tall to be a major impressive cover man, his length can make it very hard for WRs to make big plays against and Bryant has the reach to really be able to make some huge plays on the football also. Bryant is a very hard hitter and a player that can close in space very fast and make some of those huge impressive stops on the football. Allen posted 34 tackles, 23 solo and 11 assisted tackles as a sophomore in 2021, good looking action in his nine games this year.
Casey Etienne, 6’3, 180, FS/SS, 2024, Cardinal Gibbons @jellyfam_case
Taking a look at this impressive build 6-3 inch play making future star from Cardinal Gibbons, Etienne is impressive and a rangy and hot player to watch out for in the Broward Area. Etienne is a player that can make it happen as a huge athlete, a big timer both on the football field and the basketball court. Corey can play both free and strong safety and is one of those guys that had a fine 2021 with 32 tackles in 10 games, 25 of those assisted and 7 solo tackles on a very productive sophomore season.
Chris Ewald, 6’0, 161, CB, 2025, Chaminade-Madonna @ChrisEwaldjr
Ewald, just a freshman this past season at Chaminade-Madonna, is one of the major athletes to keep an eye on in the Broward Area, 6-0, 161, Ewald is a player that already has blown up as one of the most impressive play makers in the state, and this elite lockdown corner has racked up major D1 offers from Michigan, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, South Carolina, Texas A&M, and visited with others like Clemson among the many. The hot freshman in the ‘25 had 22 tackles, 12 solo and 10 assisted in his seven games of action in 2021. No doubt well on his way to becoming the hottest DB in Florida.

Camari Hall, 5’9, 155, SS/FS/DB, 2025, South Broward @sh0wtime_3
Hall has the makings of being one of the major names to know in the 2025 class, no doubt in the Broward area there are not many guys in his class that have looked more impressive in the early going of their freshman seasons in 2021. Hall is a play maker that can make huge things happen and proved that with a busy freshman season, Hall had three interceptions, over 15 tackles, had four pass break ups, one forced fumble, and a pair of sacks for his freshman 2021 season.
Curtis Janvier, 6’0, 175, CB/SS, 2024,Chaminade-Madonna @Curtisjanvier
Janiver is a 6-0, 170 in the the deeply talented Chaminade-Madonna secondary unit and one of the ‘24s that looks to be a great one. Janiver is a guy that can be all over the field making big pass breakups and can play both corner and free safety in the secondary unit. Went to the Miami (Fla.) camp and is one of those players we like a lot for the next level. Janvier reports a fast 4.5 time in the 40 yard dash and looks to be one of the blazing speed play makers that we think will emerge for a huge junior season in 2022. Played in three games in 2021 and will look to build upon his experience this year and be one of the team leaders in 2022. Hot name to know and a very fine play making athlete in the secondary unit.
Kaleb Lawrence, 5’10, 170, SS, 2024, Stranahan @KalebLawrence21
One of the sophomore talents that has been very impressive for sure Lawrence has the speed to get to a lot of plays and shows very good acceleration on his plays, a major hard hitting machine, one of the elite blow you up with power hitters in the Broward Area, Lawrence earned his stripes on special teams where he was a major hard hitting machine and took names. At safety he brings that hard hitting approach, closes fast and is a lights out hitter at the point of contact. No doubt one of the most in your face type of defensive backs out there. Lawrence posted 41 tackles, 29 solo, 12 assisted in 10 games and added three tackles for losses on the year.
Hyajah Miller, 6’2, 155, CB/FS, 2024,Coconut Creek @iamHMiller20
A very impressive speedy defensive back and athlete that is very dangerous to throw against, can be all over the field and does a great job of reading the QB and getting to the best spot to grab a pick or make a great play on the ball in the air, no doubt we like Miller a lot of one of the hot college prospects coming up that should be considered a high radar maker. Miller has made visits to Central Florida, FAMU and Bethune Cookman and is no doubt one of the big college radar makers among defensive back prospects in the 2024 class. 6-2 inch frame for some length, lean and fast, Miller could be a major get and steal for the next level and is going to be doing big things in 2022 and 2023.
Zaquan Patterson, 6’1, 185, SS/FS,2024, Chaminade-Madonna @PattersonZaquan
Patterson is one of the most athletic play making defensive backs in Florida and this SS/FS ‘24 super sophomore from Chaminade-Madonna has all the makings to be as good as they come, Was invited to the 2024 Under Armour All-American Game, Patterson is a player that has racked up 13 D1 offers, Syracuse was the first offer, then others rolled on in, they include Florida State, Georgia, South Carolina, Maryland, Pitt, Ole Miss, Miami, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, NC State, Indiana, and Michigan. Patterson was huge this year, in his 10 games he had 51 tackles, 21 solo and 30 assisted on a big time sophomore campaign. Ranked a 4Star DB by 247Sports, and 12 nationally, and #2 in Florida’s ‘24 class.
Andre Poitier-Abreu, 5’11, 144,CB,2024, Coconut Creek @AbreuPoitier
Coconut Creek’s Andre Poitier-Abreau is one of the ‘24s we like a lot this is coming up and holds a lot of potential to be a big time college prospect. Andre has a lot of great skills at corner, good looking speed for sure, he can be all over the field in a hurry, one of the big time heavy hitters also in the Coconut Creek secondary unit and a major special teams play maker also that uses that speed to be a major disrupter, Poitier-Abreu has a knack for being a quick play reader then flys to the ball and can really put a major lick on the man with the football. A fun and exciting play maker to watch as well. Big things ahead for a big time looking speed corner.
Remington Roberts, 6’1, 170,SS/FS, 2024, Westminster @RemingtonRober3
Check out this super sophomore, we really like his chances of becoming a excellent play maker in the Westminster secondary unit at either of his spots, strong or free safety, Roberts is a player that can make some great reads and plays on the football when its in the air, Roberts has some of the top hands also in the ‘24 DB class, no doubt this guy makes the play when the ball is in the air, really has those magnetic kind of hands, plays smart and knows what spot to be in to make the best play happen. Had 23 tackles on the year, 19 solo and four assisted in eight games of action this year.
