Future Stars Game kicked off its 10th year with the Jacksonville camp for Team Florida on Saturday, February 8. With the expanded Future Stars Game format to include Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and South Carolina, Team Florida was the first to get camps started for this annual all-star event. The annual event has seen some of the top middle school players in the country participate and they were expecting another talented group to show up for the Jacksonville camp. The Florida director Rickie Simon was not disappointed as the talent on hand at the camp was excellent.
Here are a few standout performances for the Team Florida camp in Jacksonville.
Rashud Conaway (7th Grade) – Conaway was a star in this event last year, only it was for Team Georgia. Now, he has moved to Florida and will be representing Team Florida in 2020, and he demonstrated the skill set that made him one of the best players in the 2019 6th Grade game. Rashud is a diverse athlete that lines up at running back, but has the talent and speed to be an elite receiver and return guy also. He demonstrated all of those talents during the Jacksonville camp, enough to walk away with the 7th grade MVP award.
Carlos Witherup (7th Grade) – Carlos is lightning in a bottle. He is a small and extremely quick playmaker that has a knack for the ball, whether on offense or defense. Carlos runs excellent routes which creates separation as a receiver and consistent hands to make every catch. With his skills after the catch, he has the potential to make every play a home run.
Jake Guarnera (8th Grade) – Jake has the perfect frame and body to project into a big time offensive line recruit. He demonstrated quickness to drop step and set for pass pro blocking and the physicality to finish his blocks. He demonstrated a good grasp of the game and you can expect him to be another in the long line of division 1 offensive linemen that have played in this event.
