Top Florida High School Site Joins TheInsiders

SEATTLE - For more than four years, Florida Kids has not just been a term to describe youth in the Sunshine State. It has been a print and Internet institution. This is another reason to become a member of TheInsiders Club.

A devote fan of high school sports, Larry Blustein, publisher of Larry Blustein's FloridaKids and Florida Kids Magazine, has made it so. And now Blustein's site now is part of TheInsiders.com network.

"I can't tell you how excited we are to add Larry Blustein to TheInsiders.com team," said Jamie Newberg, national recruiting editor for TheInsiders.com. "No one is more respected in the state of Florida than Larry when it comes to covering recruiting, high school football, and all the other sports that dominate the Sunshine State."

Blustein previously published his Web site with Alliance Sports, but left for what he says is the more personalized and thorough relationaships and features at TheInsiders.com. His addition gives TheInsiders.com every major, relevant recruiting expert in Florida, one of the most fertile breeding grounds of football talent in the country. Blustein joins Newberg and cohort Scott Kennedy, Mike Bakas, and Dave Peters as the most respected evaluators of Florida talent available.

"This is so important because the state of Florida produces so many college football prospects, year in and year out," Newberg said. "No one will have more eyes on prospects than TheInsiders.com. Our coverage will dominate the all important state of Florida."

The network's exclusive access data from Nike Training Camps in Gainesville and Miami is critical, according to Blustein.

"We have all the real numbers," he said. "This really gives our coverage of recruits an authentic spin."

Blustein has covered sports, particularly high school sports, in Florida for 28 years. He has published Florida Kids magazine for 17 years and operated his Web site for more than four. Such is his passion for high school sports, Blustein says he sees an average of three or four games and speaks to 200-300 athletes a week.

As Gene Williams, longtime publisher of a prominent Florida-based site says, "Nobody knows more about Florida State football than Larry." Lets all give Larry a big welcome - http://hsflorida.theinsiders.com/
