North Comes Up Short In Talented 305 All-Star Game

While this has not been the best of years for Booker T. Washington head football coach Tim "Ice" Harris and his football program, the longtime icon thought that he was in a win/win situation last Saturday night.

Heading up the North squad for The Tournament of Champions All-Star Classic at Ansin Sports Complex in Miramar, Harris saw his team get behind 35-12 before getting some huge plays from his elite prospects.

Even though his North squad fell short, just having the opportunity to coach these athletes that he competed against for so long, was a huge thrill.

"It's never easy to coach one of these all-star games," Harris explained. "We have been fortunate through the years to never have lost one, but there are never any guarantees that you will come out on top."

What Harris and his excellent staff did was to help expose many of these prospects. Talented young men who were looking for that additional look.

Among those who made an impact included Norland quarterback Alec Carr, who came in a year ago from Dade Christian and elevated the Vikings to the playoffs this season.

There was also Booker T. Washington running back Willie Davis, who was one of the most underrated runners this past season in South Florida. The one time Christopher Columbus prospect showed that if given the opportunity, he can certainly make things happen.

The North team also featured Booker T. Washington standouts Jaquan Beaver (LB) and Zahir Turner, a way under the radar receiver.

Central defensive end Rollansky Darote, athlete Seth McGill and University of Utah-bound receiver Terrell Perriman were also prospects that everyone watched.

Norland receiver Jamarie Harrison, and Dr. Krop standouts Francky Jean Louis (LB) and running back Lawrence Pappilon came up big as well.
