Battle Miami-Dade North vs. South All-Star Game Loaded With Prospects

Through the years, one of the most famous and well respected high school all-star games was the Nike Miami-Dade vs. Broward game that showcased some of the elite talent in both counties.

Some of the bigger names in high school football made sure when that game was played, there were a huge part of it.

But as time moved on, Broward County players stopped showing the passion for the event that organizer Wesley Frater and his hard working staff at TOC (Tournament of Champions) had built into a premier post season game.

"We know that the Miami-Dade kids always want to be a part of this game – it's always been that way," Frater explained. "We even tried adding players from the west coast and the Palm Beaches, but in the end, they didn't take this game as young men from Miami-Dade did."

What Frater did was to make this game all about Miami-Dade, and in the first few years, things have been competitive – and the prospects who are part of this event show up, play hard and try to grab the spotlight.

This Saturday (5 p.m) at the Ansin Sports Complex (10801 Miramar Blvd., Miramar, Fl. 33025) in Miramar, the annual Battle North vs. South game will take place as some of the best seniors will play for pride and exposure – once again.

As the tremendous players will perform, both teams have benefitted in a major way with outstanding coaching from the South with Doral Academy head coach Jase Stewart - and on the North team, where veteran Booker T. Washington head coach Tim "Ice" Harris has been teaching this past week.

"Excited about the opportunity to coach the athletes we compete against all the time," Harris said. "This is the best place in the nation for high school football - and I believe that this game backs that up."
