All of the events and fan-friendly entertainment is awesome but I’m just here for some football.

An epic battle took place Friday night between two big time high school programs in south Florida. Miami Northwestern and Miami Central squared off with the winner a virtual lock to win the district title.

With there now being 17 verbal commitments to BirdGang ’18, there has much talk about a recent commit, Tutu Atwell.

The mere mention of Teddy’s name being associated with Tutu, brings another level of expectations and attention. But after you do your research, you will find that he is only ranked as a 2 star by 247sports and 3 star by several other sites. You will also find that he is listed as an athlete and not expected to play QB at Louisville.

Tutu is a dual threat quarterback that will more than likely move to reciever in Louisville’s offense. He is very talented!
Here are some of his highlights:
