Safety making case for best player in Florida

Last season the Carol City Chiefs had arguably the best player in the state of Florida linebacker Willie Williams. For the second straight season the Chiefs may have the best player in Florida, Kenny Phillips.

He is a 6-foot-2, 195-pound heat seeking missile for the Chiefs defense. Kenny had seven interceptions last season, was one of the leading tacklers and also had the most pass breakups for the Carol City defense. Phillips was named to 1st Team All-Dade County and All-State in 2003. Not only is Kenny a star on the football field, he is making a name for himself on the track. His specialties are the 200m, long jump and high jump for his track team.

So does Phillips have a leader at this time?

"No, its way too early in the recruiting process."

He did grow up a Miami Hurricane football fan but Kenny mentioned to the Insiders that he would take his time making up his mind.

"I am focusing on track and when the time comes than I will think about recruiting."

Phillips intends on narrowing his schools down to five early on in the recruiting process.

The five schools that may get the visits from Kenny Phillips are Miami, FSU, NC State, Florida and Rutgers. "Those are my five top schools and the ones that I will visit," he said.

After winning the State Championship this past season Phillips wants to lead his team back to the top again this year.

"Winning State last year was great but doing it again is our team goal."

As for Individual goals Kenny would like to lead Dade County in interceptions this year.
