Southridge senior OT Cody Bowes is this week’s South Florida High School Real Men Block Player Of The Week. A former basketball standout, Bowes has become one of the better offensive line prospects in South Florida since he made a full-time switch to the gridiron. The 6-foot-4, 275-pounder paved the way for his Spartans to earn a 28-0 win over rival Killian during week seven. Congratulations Cody !
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.
