From West Palm Beach to Florida City, FL -- Tiwan (#10, Pictured), is arguably the most dominant 6th grade defensive student-athlete. The 12-year-old, stands 5-foot-7, 143-pounds and can flat out run. I observed him run down speedy running backs and wide receivers. Tiwan, weekend in-and-out, delivers some of the most vicious hits for someone his age. This fall, on defense -- he finished the season with (60 solo tackles) and well over 80 tackles.
Here's a note, remember how I mention he was a vicious hitter? Well, he is responsible for 9 - Force Fumbles this fall and not to mention, 22 - Sacks and 3 - Interceptions (2-returned for TD's). Tiwan, gridiron play and jersey #10, reminds me of former FSU great and now, NFL Hall of Famer - Linebacker Derrick Brooks.
Everyone knows my coverage is Southwest Miami-Dade County, but he's one particular 6th grader, while on the way home heading southbound, I had to tell my co-workers and friends about. He's that good and I personally, feel he's a Top 3 overall athlete for his class. Tiwan (Left, Pictured), also excels on the track and field and according to his medals, It's obvious he's taking care of business in track and field as well. Which explains his long speed -- returning 4 - kick returns for touchdowns this fall. Yesterday, the all-around student-athlete was selected to represent the Generation Nexxt Dade vs. Broward All-Star Game. Remember the name Tiwan McCloud -- he certainly has a bright future, Gennexxt Scouting approves this message.
