Team: Miami Gardens Chiefs 13u CLASS: 2021
Usually Preseason is where most teams iron their kinks out and figure out their depth charts as well as their go to guys. The Miami Gardens Chiefs 13u traveled to Jacksonville early August to get some work from an older 14u team. While only being in gear for a week the Chiefs looked like seasoned vets destroying their opponent 37 nothing. With no shortage of talent for the Chiefs, I quickly realize they were loaded. But to my surprise a 2021 prospect would explode on my radar with his defensive prowess & natural instincts. Number 7# Jaylin Coliins was that kid’s name that I would begin to be impressed with every time I watched him play. This kid is oozing with so much athleticism & talent not to mention he is the ultimate competitor which he later proved repeatedly. The Chiefs would take on their bitter rival the Miami Gardens Ravens in the battle of undefeated 13u teams at Betty T. Ferguson. Primetime under the lights is where Jaylin Collins would put on a show recording over 10 tackles and adding a highlight reel one handed touchdown catch. But the play that got everyone’s attention was a bone jarring crack back block that would free up his teammate for a go ahead touchdown. The hit sent shock waves thru the crowd, as well as over a million views on Youtube. In his teams toughest match up of the season Jaylin shine the brightest, I guess you could call it his coming out party but he wasn’t finished yet. No stranger to competition Fbu Dade 7th grade team was down to Broward 21-7, Jaylin would make his presence felt catching two quick slants turning both into touchdowns. With so much talent on both Fbu Dade & Broward squads you’d be hard pressed to find anybody to disagree with Jaylin being the best player on the field that day bar none. Sky’s the limit for this confident 2021 prospect that leaves it all on the field every Game day.
Jaylin Collins is an explosive athlete with quick-twitch movement skills. He has natural ability on the field as a receiver or safety. Jaylin shows excellent release quickness, as he can launch upfield and threaten safeties with his speed. He has good strength to fight press coverage and has no issues in bursting out of his cuts to create separation. Jaylin also flashes the elusiveness to avoid linebackers when going across the middle, where he displays the athletic ability to adjust to balls thrown around him. He has great instincts as a runner, shows good vision to find open areas and owns the speed to outrun defenders to the end zone. Jaylin has a high ceiling as a receiver and has the ability to be a very good returner.
Jaylin displays top notch hip flexibility and agility. He can shoot out of transition to sprint anywhere on the field. Jaylin also has solid ball-location skills, as he can squeeze the line of scrimmage and chase running backs around the box. He displays the range to roam as a single safety, where his vision and ball skills are assets against passing plays.
