  • 6:00 am Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 by Jodie Wagner

Each weekday leading up to the start of spring practice, we’ll release a new player from the top 10 of our Class of 2016 Big Board and break down his game with an interactive graphic. Today, it’s No. 9, Ja’kevious Vickers, a running back at Glades Central.

Vickers was one of the area’s top running backs last season despite having limited experience at the position. A converted safety/linebacker, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Vickers rushed for more than 1,000 yards and played a key role in leading the revitalized Raiders to the regional finals.

2016 Big Board breakdown: No. 10 Da’Von Brown

  • 6:00 am Monday, April 13th, 2015 by Anthony Chiang

Each weekday leading up to the start of spring practice, we’ll release a new player from the top 10 of our Class of 2016 Big Board and break down his game with an interactive graphic. Today, it’s No. 10, Da’Von Brown, a cornerback at Royal Palm Beach.

It’s hard to find high school cornerbacks with better man-to-man coverage skills than Brown. Despite being 5-foot-11, he’s one of the most physical cornerbacks in Palm Beach County. Don’t be surprised to see Brown begin to draw big offers before the start of his senior season.
