PrepNation 101 Preseason FB Countdown: No. 84 Glades Central

84. Glades Central (Belle Glade, Fla.)
Last season’s record: 11-2, lost in Class 3A quarterfinals
Coach: Jessie Hester
Key players: WR Rantavious Wooten (6-0, 185, Sr.), OL Rupert Bryan (6-1, 240, Sr.), OL Henry Orelus (6-3, 295, Sr.), QB Leron Thomas (6-2, 175, Jr.), RB Antonio McCoulde (5-8, 175, Sr.)
Biggest strength: Passing game, offense
Question mark: Special teams
Outlook: Hester, a former NFL receiver for the Raiders, Colts and Rams in his first season as high alma mater's head coach, inherits a high-powered offense. Wooten is a highly routed receiver with several offers from big-time colleges. This will be Thomas’ first full year as starting quarterback, but he had an impressive outing in the Raiders’ 54-46 spring game victory over No. 89 Miami Central. The offensive line has two solid pieces in place with Florida State verbal Orelus and the quick-footed Bryan. Few prep football programs across the country can match the success of Glades Central the last four decades. The Raiders have won six state titles and produced a whopping 30 NFL players since 1967.
Toughest games: Oct. 3 vs. Dwyer, Nov. 14 at Pahokee

I think their game against Abilene in Abilene will be one of their toughest right behind Pahokee if not their toughest. Abilene has a good QB and a great defense.

pahokee is way better then abilene. So dont be crazy. They may be a small school in florida but in the sunshine state that means nothing. They would have whipped every team in texas last year by at least two scores.

We're talking 08 not 07. I saw Pahokee play last year, talented, yes but they had a ton of penalties in the championship game ... I don't think they would beat any Tx team by 2 TDs.
