Amid controversy, Northwestern has something special



[pic - click to view]


FOUR OF A KIND: Northwestern football players from left to right, Brandon Washington, Jacory Harris, Sean Spence and Aldarius Johnson will need to step up if the Bulls are to repeat as the Class 6A champions.

After Miami-Dade County Superintendent Rudy Crew briefly considered canceling the football season in July, he dismissed coach Roland Smith and the majority of his staff, and declared that the school would be put on a probationary period in the wake of last December's s3x scandal involving former running back Antwain Easterling.

Northwestern, which already had a new principal (Charles Hankerson) following a grand jury investigation of the Easterling scandal, hired a new athletic director (Earl Allick) and a new coaching staff headed by Billy Rolle, who returned to Northwestern after six seasons at k!llian.

''I've been blessed to have a good mom and dad, but it was hard for some of the guys who looked up to the former coaches as that father or big brother figure,'' senior defensive lineman Marcus Forston said.

``Coach Rolle really made us feel good when he came in. We told the guys give him a chance. Here's a guy that has gone through some of the same things we have when he was here the last time.''

Through it all, the Bulls relied on their close friendships to persevere through a tumultuous offseason that brought plenty of change to the nation's No. 1 ranked high school football team.

''The day after coach Smith got fired, Jacory and I brought the guys on the team together and told them to take two days off,'' Forston said. ``We called everyone back two days later and we ran our summer conditioning ourselves. We worked on drills and busted into a little 7-on-7. There were fans at the school watching us that couldn't believe there were no coaches around. That's when we knew we must really have something special here.''

While last year's state championship team is considered one of the best ever in Miami-Dade County, this year's squad has the potential to top it if it wins back-to-back titles for the first time in school history.

Northwestern will open the season ranked No. 2 nationally by Sports Illustrated and StudentSports.com, and Rolle has said he will not alter the formula on a team that scored 600 total points and returns eight starters on offense.

Harris (6-4, 175) is the nation's fourth-best quarterback by Rivals.com, and one of five players orally committed to the University of Miami. This summer, he became the first South Florida quarterback to be chosen to the EA Sports Elite 11 National Quarterback camp where he won the ''Best Footwork'' Award.

Wide receivers Aldarius Johnson (6-4, 200), the state's No. 7 overall prospect by Rivals.com and UM commitment, will try to best the county's single-season receiving records he set last year, and Tommy Streeter (6-6, 200) is entertaining offers from Alabama, Miami and South Carolina, after a stellar performance in Northwestern's 42-21 win against defending Class 3A champion Belle Glade Glades Central in the spring. Add to that talented senior receivers Kendal Thompkins, Brandon Drayton and Robert Demps, and you have one of the best receiving groups in the state.

Offensive lineman Brandon Washington (6-5, 280), who transferred from Edison, is the nation's No. 9 guard by Rivals.com and a UM commitment. He will anchor the line along with 6-5, 320-pound senior Terrell k!llings.

The one on-field question was who will replace Easterling's 2,503 yards and 33 touchdowns rushing?

Juniors Daquan Hargrett and Tyresse Jones, who were backups last year, and sophomore Corvin Lamb are the favorites for the starting role.

The defense that posted seven straight shutouts has seven starters back and is equally replete with Division I talent.

Forston (6-4, 305) is the nation's No. 2 defensive tackle and No. 15 overall prospect by Rivals.com. He starred at the University of Florida's Friday Night Lights camp in July and committed to UM shortly after. He will anchor the line with senior defensive end Ben Jones (6-5, 280), who missed last season with a knee injury, and has offers from UM, UF, FSU, LSU and Ohio State to name a few.

Senior Sean Spence (6-1, 200), a UM commitment, is the backbone of arguably the best linebacking corps in the state. Forston said senior Quavon Taylor (6-0, 195) is the hardest hitter on the team, and senior Levonte David (6-1, 200) has excellent quickness.

''Practicing on this team is practicing with the best,'' Washington said. ``These guys all deserve the rankings they've got because they are talented and they stay humble.''

Northwestern will make its bid for a national championship Sept. 15 when it takes on Southlake Carroll in a nationally-televised game in Dallas on ESPNU. Southlake Carroll has won 79 of the past 80 games, three straight Texas state titles, and was voted national champions last year by USA Today.

''The chance to play on national TV is not something every school can say,'' Forston said. ``We want to represent our community and our alumni in a good way.''

But representing off the field is paramount to the Bulls players.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools released a new student participation contract for county student-athletes earlier this month with strict guidelines for the Northwestern football team.

Forston said this season the Bulls will strive to change the negative perception that has lingered around the school in recent years.

''The first thing my mom asks me is about my report card, not the game,'' Forston said. ``That's the kind of stuff people don't see. They say we're a bunch of thugs playing football. We want to show everyone it's not like that at all.''

2. Davon Johnson - Booker T. Sr.
3. Tommy Streeter - Northwestern Sr.
4. Thearon Collier - Booker T. Sr.

1. Jacory Harris - Northwestern Sr.
2. Sancho McDonald - Booker T. Sr.

Coaches have always said if a player is on the two-deep, even if he's a true freshman, that he'll play right away.

Which means there are already several first-year players guaranteed not to redshirt: WR Leonard Hankerson, RB Graig Cooper, OL Orlando Franklin, safety Joseph Nicolas and CB Demarcus Van Dyke.

But there are some other first-year players that are also expected to get playing time this season: WR Kayne Farquharson (a junior college transfer with a redshirt year available) and DBs Jared Campbell and Damien Berry.

If all of the aforementioned defensive backs play this year and players say based on what's been going on in practice with scout team this week that that's what will likely happen then there will be four true freshmen defensive backs in line for immediate action.

Berry says he'll be playing on "A couple of special teams and a little in the nickel package."

He added of the young defensive backs that "We're all coming along real great. All we need to work on is talking a little more not everyone is getting the calls in, but we're going to get that straight with communication."

Veteran safety Lovon Ponder hasn't seen more than one or two true freshmen defensive backs get immediate action at UM in a given year.

But he also hasn't seen young defensive backs with this kind of potential.

"We didn't come in with a lot of numbers at DB to start with, and they came in and did well," Ponder said. "It's a good thing for them that they can travel (with the team). Once you've been clarified as traveling, to me you're an upperclassman already."

Coach Randy Shannon said of the young DB's that "They're doing really well. That's the thing we've always had is skill guys, because skill guys are the ones that can help you out early. We're always going to recruit skill guys to come in and play early. These guys are going to contribute on special teams and play some in the game, which will build depth on this team and competition."

Defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff says "I think there's a lot of talent in that group. Of course they have to mature you have very few true freshmen that can come in and make a huge contribution. Now, you have some freshmen that can come in and make a contribution. And I see that in some of the DB's that we have as freshman. I see some of them coming in the first game, some of them coming in the fifth game, and some of them coming in later in the year and making a contribution. I see several of them making a contribution on special teams."

The lack of experienced depth at defensive back is mirrored at wide receiver, where it appears two newcomers will be playing right away.

Farquharson isn't listed in the official two deep but says he has worked against the scout team all week.

"I'm getting reps in practice, so I doubt (I'll redshirt)," Farquharson said. "I could be wrong, but I highly doubt it."

UM vets must earn jobs
Posted on Wed, Aug. 29, 2007Digg del.icio.us AIM reprint print email
By BARRY JACKSON

There's no entitlement. That was the clear message as new UM coach Randy Shannon unveiled likely starters for Saturday's opener against Marshall. ''We're not going to play a guy just because he's a veteran,'' Shannon said.

And if a former starter is ''nicked up,'' like cornerback Glenn Sharpe? He becomes ''the low man on the totem poll,'' Shannon said. ''It's not personal.'' Chatter on some positions clarified Tuesday:

Quarterback: According to a UM person, here are four reasons Kirby Freeman won the job: superior mobility to Kyle Wright, a knack for getting his team into the end zone during drills, strong leadership skills and a willingness to take accountability for mistakes. We're told that Freeman was preferred by most of the staff.

Running back: Shannon left the starting job unresolved between Javarris James and Graig Cooper, but both will play a lot. Cooper said he is being used at times as a slot receiver in practice, to get both on the field together.

Receiver: With Sam Shields suspended for one game, Khalil Jones is the surprise starter opposite Lance Leggett. ''Khalil had problems catching the ball in the past but not anymore,'' James said. Darnell Jenkins is listed behind Jones, but that's partly because Jenkins has been playing the slot and ''we may line up with three receivers and without a fullback and then Darnell is starting,'' Shannon said.

Offensive line: Jason Fox, Reggie Youngblood and Chris Rutledge will share time at the tackles so ''each can get about 50 plays [and] wear other teams down,'' Shannon said. Although Orlando Franklin opened camp ahead of Andrew Bain, Shannon said he was impressed by how Bain responded, and he won the spot at left guard for Week 1, with Derrick Morse at right guard. ''If Franklin doesn't push Bain, we stay average on the offensive line,'' Shannon said. For more on new center John Rochford, see page 5D.

Defensive line: One surprise: Dwayne Hendricks -- who has skills that Morse compared to deceased former Cane Bryan Pata -- starts at one tackle spot ahead of slightly injured Josh Holmes and Antonio Dixon. ''We're going with the guy who has been the most consistent,'' defensive line coach Clint Hurtt said. ``Dwayne's very good in the running game.''

Linebacker: Tavares Gooden, who bemoaned a few weeks ago how he hasn't fulfilled expectations, recently started getting a lot of time at middle linebacker and won the job over Darryl Sharpton, who can't stay healthy. Shannon liked Gooden's experience. Coaches have been buzzing about Spencer Adkins, who won the weak-side job, with Colin McCarthy at strong side.

Defensive backs: Freshman DeMarcus Van Dyke -- ''who's big, fast and can make a lot of plays,'' Shannon said -- won one cornerback job, with Randy Phillips/Carlos Armour still battling for the other. When front-runner Phillips missed time last week, ''Armour did such a great job, there's now competition,'' Shannon said. . . . The safety spot alongside Kenny Phillips remains open between Lovon Ponder and Willie Cooper.

Walk-on Francesco Zampogna won the place-kicker job because he was the most consistent on field goals. ''He reminds me of the Carlos Huerta situation,'' Shannon said. . . . Cooper, who won the punt-return job, dropped several punts earlier in camp but said he has corrected that.
