Thinking about how loaded the 305 is in the next two recruiting cycles and some threads from the past got me thinking. If you made an All-Time Miami-Dade football team what would it look like? Not necessarily talking how they ended up in college/pros, more so talking what they was in high school. How great of a prep player they were and as a prospect. Guys like Derrick Thomas wouldn’t count even though he ended up being an all-time great etc.. I love talking history here’s my go

Super hard to do but here’s my defense:

- Defense
DL Lester Williams (Carol City 1978)
DL Marcus Forston (Northwestern 2008)
DL Ted Hendricks (Hialeah 1965)
LB Willie Williams (Carol City 2004)
LB Marvin Jones (Northwestern 1990)
LB Lamont Green (Southridge 1994)
LB Nate Webster (Northwestern 1996)
CB Antrel Rolle (Homestead 2001)
S Sean Taylor (Gulliver Prep 2001)
S Kenny Phillips (Carol City 2005)
CB Brandon Harris (Washington 2008)

- Defense Honorable Mentions
DL Alonzo Highsmith (Columbus 1983)
LB Matthew Thomas (Washington 2013)
CB Demetrice Morley (Killian 2005)
S Derrick Gibson (Killian 1997)
(Gonna keep the honorable mentions short and sweet cause that list could on on for days. These are the 4 who just missed the cut behind the others IMO.) I will post my offense later.

Cool list of top 100 out of dade as of 15 years ago

There’s a broward one as well but it’s out of date too. STA and American Heritage have produced some players in recent years that would be on it without a doubt.

Highlight reel compilations of the above listed legends.

DL Marcus Forston (Northwestern 2008)


LB Willie Williams (Carol City 2004)


LB Marvin Jones (Northwestern 1990)
LB Nate Webster (Northwestern 1996)


CB Antrel Rolle (Homestead 2001)

(Couldn’t find any videos of Williams, Hendricks or Lamont Green. Whoever South Florida Legends is on YouTube thank you for these amazing videos. Keep doing what you do. Also the footage of Marvin Jones and Nate Webster was sick. Nate looks like a psychopath out there. He might not have the same elite measurables as some of the others on this list but he was an instinctive LB that showed up with bad intentions. Terrible human being off the field but loved him on the field.)

Nate was an All Time Tackling Machine in HS and UM....Had 400+ tackles in HS.....And 300+ in 22 games as a starter at UM.....Anyone who thinks Derrick Thomas shouldn't be on a All-Time Dade HS team, needs their heads examined....WW is the best that EVER came out of Dade....Period

Here’s my offense was even harder than defense to decide on some people.

- Offense
QB Jacory Harris (Northwestern 2008)
RB Frank Gore (Coral Gables 2001)
RB Freddie Miles (Springs 1980)
WR Andre Johnson (Miami 1999)
WR Aldarius Johnson (Northwestern 2008)
ATH Duke Johnson (Norland 2012)
OL Vernon Carey (Northwestern 1999)
OL Rudy Barber (Carol City 1989)
OL Lomas Brown (Springs 1981)
OL Steve Everitt (Southridge 1988)
OL ? Who’s someone I’m missing here (Ben Jones at MNW 08 was good but not on these other guys level.)

- Offense Honorable Mentions
QB Ethenic Sands (Carol City 1998)
RB Dalvin Cook (Central 2014)
RB Willis McGahee (Central 2000)
RB Bobby Washington (Killian 2004)
A whole lot of other RBs and WRs are close…

(The amount of honorable mentions that could be put at RB and WR is hard to fathom but I had to mention these three. Sands also had one of the best prep careers of any HS player ever in Dade as far as accomplishments. Davis bros at Southridge too. I’ll probably take a lot of heat putting Aldarius Johnson over some other WRs but in high school he was THAT guy. I thought he was the next Dre.)

Man I can’t believe I forgot to add him I’m gonna edit it lmao. Still pissed he didn’t qualify.
The Davis Bros have every right to be on that list as well...Troy went on to break records in College. You can easily add Elvis Peacock as well. Legendary UM RB coach Don Soldinger coached both the Davis Bros, and an All American in his own right in Tony Smith in the late 70s....but Sarge will tell you that Miles was the best of them all.

I was just gonna bring up Davis. Troy gets a lot of credit bc he was one of the first ever in dads to crack 2k in a season iirc.

Tony gaiter should get a mention. He was on the weekly Friday night news just about every week with a great return/score.

Now if there was a 3 man coaching staff to coach this list of guys who would it be? I’m taking Walt Frazier at DC. Carol City always could play some defense under him.
