What did spring football teach us this year?

Well, first of all, the points you score or let up mean nothing in the grand scheme of things in May. Results are meaningless.

Many players found out that the offers being made here in May will most likely not be available after the summer.

Being hurt and not taking part in spring will really hurt you - especially if you are not a major recruit. The exposure that you get is only four years, and you only get two or three springs to showcase your talent in front of a lot of coaches.

Speaking of exposure, if you do some great things, with the college coaches watching, you can almost pick which school you want to attend. All colleges want South Florida kids on their roster.

This week’s 3 For Thursday brings you a trio of football players who certainly turned heads in the spring - and made a statement.

Keeping in mind that we had nearly 200 Division 1 type of football players signed this past season, the next wave of talent will be just as good.

In our never ending quest to bring everyone as many quality football players as possible, we breakdown some football talent that really made an impact - when colleges were watching this spring.   

2019 - Trevis Robinson, OLB, Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons. For a unit that lost three starters from last year - as well as an underclassman who was injured earlier this spring, this is a talented football player who is out to show that the Chiefs will be very hard to move the ball again this coming season. This is a tackling machine. He is around the ball on every play - which is something that college coaches had the chance to see are for themselves. Impressive playmaker who will be ultra valuable for this program in 2018.

2019 - Richard Sam, WR, North Miami. Having watched his progress over the past two season, this is someone who really helped his stock rise - in a major way this spring. A solid pass catcher who has speed and plenty of athleticism. Follows in the footsteps of his older brother who was also a standout receiver for the Pioneers - and adds to a long list of productive receivers this program produces annually.  Has put in the work, attended several events and competed against many of  the elite football players in South Florida. With colleges watching everything he does, you can guarantee when all is said and done, Sam will be among the best in this class.

2019 - Tyler Waxman, P/PK, Pembroke Pines West Broward. At a time when special teams players can make the difference whether a program wins a title or not, there are now more exposure events than ever, spotlighting kickers, punters and long snappers. What Tyler has come is one of the elite kickers and punters around. A big part of the Bobcats 2017 district title, last weekend, this impressive prospect won the overall kicking and punting titles at the Kornblue Summer Showcase at Calvary Christian in Fort Lauderdale. Not only is he very good locally, but this is someone who is also regraded as one of the best in the country!
