8th Grade: Miami-Dade County Top 3 Middle School Football Players

If you haven't noticed, there's a total of five youth football leagues throughout Miami-Dade County, but there's also middle school football action that takes place as well. This season, Generation Nexxt was able to attend several middle school games and three 8th grade student-athletes stoodout to us.

Keys Gate Charter ATH Roderick Grissom

In my opinion, he was the best all-around athlete in middle school football. I observed several games where he averaged four touchdowns with sometimes two or three quarters remaining and was a lockdown cornerback on defense.

Roderick rushed for over 20 - touchdowns and caught roughly 5 - touchdowns by lining up at slot receiver or catching simple swing out passes out the backfield. He was just the flat out best overall athlete on the field.

Roderick also returned several kick off returns for touchdowns and his defense would struggle in the passing game, roderick would enter the game at cornerback and that wide receiver would disappear. Led his team to the middle school championship.

Mater Academy Charter RB Takori Thurston

Takori was the best middle school running back in my opinion. He scored over over 20 - touchdowns this season and most of them was during the first half alone. He just like Roderick Grisdom (Keys Gate Charter) were overlooked due to not receiving the same media attention, but they can for sure play in any of the five youth football leagues throughout Miami-Dade County.

Generation Nexxt scouting attended his middle school championship versus Keys Gate Charter and Takori ran wild. Takori would score five rushing touchdowns and rush for over 250 - yards. Led his team to the middle school championship.

Gulliver Prep RB Amin Hassan

Amin made plays in all three phases of the game this season. He caught, ran and returned kicks for touchdowns. The slasher recorded over 10 - all purpose touchdowns and helped his team to the middle school semi-finals championship.
