As fall approaches, Florida Youth Football League (FYFL) Ft. Lauderdale Hurricanes 14U Football team, reminds me of the Philadelphia Eagles football squad, that added well-known playmakers on their roster during the off-season that made front page storylines. On paper, the hurricanes offense is loaded at the offensive unit and could very well be the most dangerous offense in South Florida.
The hurricanes signal caller, Derohn King (#2)stands 6-foot-1, 175 pounds and can effortlessly toss the pigskin half a football field. This off-season, Derohn displayed a cannon for an arm and nice touch passes, which resulted in him being named the Broward Regional Combine quarterback MVP. Derohn, upside is through the roof. Derohn, attended Generation Skills Ultimate Skills Challenge this summer and finished #1 in both the quarterback skills challenge accuracy and the highest bench reps amongst all quarterbacks. I have a great feeling, he's going to be a hot commodity come spring for high school football coaches.
Last fall, Marvin Trowers (#13) was Tamarac Couagers 13U dual-threat quarterback. Listen to this number, last fall he scored a total of (23) touchdowns (18-passing & 5-rushing). This off-season, he and his former Assistant head coach/offensive coordinator, Tavaris Bragdon agreed that lining up at wide receiver instead of under center will be his future.
Marvin's athletisim and hand-eye coordination stood out this summer. He earned a spot on Generation Skills Ultimate Skills Challenge, elite 5 showcase and enters fall as Generation Nexxt Scouting #2 overall wide receiver for his class. Coach Tavaris Bragdon, what does Marvin Trowers bring to Ft. Lauderdale Hurricanes 14U football squad?
Tavaris Bragdon - "He's an electric playmaker who can line up anywhere on the field and make it happen for the team."
Generation Nexxt Scouting #1 wide receiver and #3 overall athlete, Jordan Cash (#6) is a future phenom and he's everything as advertise.Jordan has attended over five camps throughout the sunshine state -- ranging from youth, high school and the college ranks. How good is he? Every football camp he has attended, at best he takes home the overall MVP and at worst he's named the best wide receiver. This summer, Jordan showcased his top end speed taking part in the Generation Skills Ultimate Skills Challenge. He recorded the fastest electronically timed 40-yard dash at 4.85 and was named both the offensive MVP and overall MVP. Jordan's trainer
Aaron Millines thoughts about Jordan Cash, "Jordan Cash is a very polished athlete . Reminds me alot of Percy Harvin. as his trainer the last 4years I have seen him develope into one of the best athletes in the country."
The hurricanes offense has all the pieces and now, it's time to put them all together. Their first game this season will be versus 1st year program - South Dade Bulldogs.
