Since the start of High School Football Season in South Florida, ex UM legend and NFL Star Leon Searcy has saluted the men in the trenches with his Real Men Block Player Of The week award. Here are the winners from week eight. There was a split between North Miami Beach’s Woodlyson Alcius & Kahric Belle. The bookend offensive tackles have been paving the way for the Chargers to have a playoff-worthy season in 2016. Alcius, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound senior, and Belle – a 6-foot-6, 300-pound junior – both hold multiple offers and will continue to be major factors in North Miami Beach’s success the rest of the season. The winners were announced on the Freeman & Fox Radio Show featuring Gigi Fontaine on WZAB AM 880 The Biz (Search IHeart Radio) Saturdays 3-5pm.
The most outstanding player from week 10 was Marjory Stoneman Douglas senior OL Corey Gaynor. A Minnesota verbal commit, Gaynor helped the Eagles total over 200 rushing yards in their week 10 victory over Monarch. Congrats to all.
Leon Searcy decided to expand his vision of helping rising offensive lineman by giving them the acknowledgement that often times gets overlooked. Traditionally offensive linemen’s only recognition is during penalities. The training and studies for the position bares little reward from the fans. Mr. Searcy has devised a “pedestal” for lineman to embrace. A brotherhood amongst the core of offensive glamour. An opportunity to allow these men of the trenches to stand out and receive their overdue recognition.
