+ Windermere Prep seeks new offensive identity
After a scrimmage on Aug. 15, Windermere Prep head coach Jacob Doss addressed the progress his program has made so far during fall camp in replacing the many skill players on offense that graduated.
“We had a lot of skill guys last year; we had some really electric talent (who) graduated,” Doss said. “I think our offensive line is where we’re going to hang our hat this year: They’re big; they’re strong; they’ve all played together before; they’ve all started games together.”
The line’s main job will be protecting senior quarterback Parker Davis — widely regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the region. As for Davis, he will be working with a new corps of receivers, including two additions from the Lakers’ basketball program: Yasseen Aratius and Will Seelman.
“We love them both,” Doss said. “They’re both big, strong, physical kids. They both play basketball, so they’re athletic — both of them can alley-oop dunk. These kids are good.”
+ Expectations high for Foundation Academy’s Brown
Conrad Brown, a standout receiver for the Foundation Academy Lions, graduated this past spring and is set to begin his career in junior college.
Luckily for the Lions and head coach Brad Lord, Conrad’s younger brother, Konrie, is having a strong fall camp.
“Konrie Brown might be one of the best athletes in Central Florida,” Lord said. “He plays receiver for us, as well. … We’ll move him all over the defense — he’ll play (defensive) end, safety, linebacker. He returns kicks for us.”
