After traveling over 100-miles the past two weeks visiting parks associated with Greater Miami So. Florida Pop Warner, Florida Youth Football League, Miami Xtreme and several middle school football teams -- I decided to reward the student-athletes in grades 8th and 7th, with a Deep South Gridiron preseason 1st team Offense, Defense and Special Teams, which features the TOP 25 overall.
Tamiami Colts RB Andre Stringfield
Tamiami Colts RB Andre Stringfield (Pictured Above) is a future phenom that's rated as the #1 RB in South Florida according to Generation Nexxt Scouting. Andre has youth football All-American written all over him. He's argubably the best RB in the country for his class. He also passes the eyeball test, standing at 5-foot-6, 160-pounds (ripped) and he clocked a 4.58/40 (stopwatch) at University of Miami - Al Golden Football Camp. Andre has been named Florida vs. Georgia All-Star Game MVP twice and last fall, he was named Generation Nexxt Greater Miami So. Florida Pop Warner Player of the Year.student-athletes entering the season.

Anton is a jack of all trades. He's 5-foot-6, roughly 150-pounds and can make a difference in all three phases of the game. Anton attended Generation Nexxt Ultimate Skills Challenge this summer at the Chamber with over (20) Top 100 Preseason athletes and was named the Offensive MVP, after lining up RB, WR and CB.
