This past weekend in Apopka, Team Florida of the 2015 Florida/Georgia Future Stars Game held its second tryouts. After a strong turnout in Miami the weekend before, athletes from central Florida came together in an effort to make the team this year and certainly did not disappoint. The group this year included some monster linemen, some big time skill players on all three grade levels and the reigning 6th grade MVP back out for the team this year as a 7th grader. Here’s a look at our top 7th grade performers (2020) from the tryouts.
Alexander Andre – ATH
Alexander Andre, 13, a 7th grader from Kissimmee peaked at the right time to take home the 7th grade MVP award. “I just remembered what my coaches taught me and calmed down,” said Andre of his performance that earned him the award. He shined in 1-on-1 drills causing multiple pass break-ups while on defense. Then with his chance on offense he went 2 of 3 catching passes.
Jamari Pringle – ATH
The overall MVP of last year’s Team Florida 10-0 victory on the 6th grade level, Pringle was back out at Future Stars Games tryouts again this year---this time, with a bigger name. Pringle again showed his speed and quickness throughout the drills and put on some noticeable muscle since we last saw him in July. Pringle looks like a lock to make the team again this year as a 7th grader and could be a standout on both sides of the ball.
Kody Morell – QB
Kody Morell, 13, a quarterback solidified his name early as a player to keep an eye on at the tryout. An athlete that is home schooled and works out three times a day showed his work ethic during individual workouts. Time after time he connected on his passes and rarely took his wide receivers off track of their route.
