One of the top athletes in Dade County this season, Denson is a prep quarterback and a very good one. As a junior, he threw for 1,855 yards and 21 touchdowns, while running for 400 more. At 6-feet, many see him as an even better wide receiver prospect though.
This season Courtney hrew for 1900 yards was named both county MVP and county offensive player of the year. Courtney additionally rushed for 600 yards, threw for 21 touchdowns and rushed for 12 touchdowns.
"My stats didn't really show what I could do because my team often got out way ahead and I would have to sit down a lot."
"I am a good passer and I can I rush. Yesterday (the Dade-Broward All Star game) I had 106 yards in six carries. I can confuse defense with my ability to run."
