Scouting Southridge

Southridge is in a tight district race to make the playoffs. The Spartan's will need to beat South Dade and Coral Reef to advance to the post-season. They played a half on Thursday before the game was cancelled due to rain.


Jamal Carter is clearly the top athlete on both sides of the ball as he lined up at wide receiver and safety. The 6'1, 185 pound junior is almost certainly one of the best prospects in talent rich Dade County for 2013 and likely the state. He has amazing feet, athleticism, and pure speed with a body to add weight. His best play was perhaps at WR where he made four defenders miss in space while traversing the field. He is fully recovered from an injury that took away his sophomore season a year ago. Carter already has 6-7 D-1 offers and will likely add significantly to that total.

Mckinnon brings athletic ability to the QB position
Geoff Vogt,

Nequan Phillips and Jeremiah McKinnon are the top athletes in the senior class. Phillips will be a corner at the next level. He is on the short side, but has good core strength and possesses play-making ability. McKinnon is being used at QB, but should be recruited for the safety spot. He has a long build that just needs to get in the weight room.

Senior Rooselvelt Donaldson makes plays. He is on the light side right now, but should grow into the defensive tackle position in college. His stock is on the rise.

Tyler Vickers and Elijah Phillips would benefit from a better passing game. The TE and WR are capable play-makers, but simply do not get much opportunity. Junior Lamar Robbins has a 6'3 frame to work with at the WR spot.

The sophomore class has three players on the radar. Running back Jamal Adjamah is the main ball carrier. It was tough yards against a strong Norland defense, but he showed some wiggle and toughness. Offensive linemen Keyno Richardson has massive size and bulk. He should get nothing but better from here. Defensive linemen James Atkins has a good frame to work with and showed that he can play in space.

One player that was out with an injury was Frank Newman. The transfer from Palmetto had a great freshmen year. His return will add plenty to this defense.
