Have a feeling Wayne Williams is going to be a quote machine when football starts.

He has a personality as big as he is.

Many have said he'll have some big shoes to fill trying to replace Jason Bromley.

Well, at least Wayne's feet will be large enough for the task, hopefully the rest of him are too.

Jason was a solid gold find, hard to believe it's already been four years.

Williams has always loved Syracuse.

I predict the team will feed off of his enthusiasm and passion.

Welcome to Syracuse young man, it was a long time coming and we're all pulling for you.:D

This quote's from the Juwan Dowels article is exactly why it's worth mining the state of Florida for talent. A pro baseball player from the state told me that their is so much undiscovered talent throughout the state that gets overlooked it isn't funny. He used himself as an example, he said there were 9 better players than himself in the surrounding area who never got a break like he did. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time. He went on, Syracuse University could become a top twenty team with the overlooked talent from my state.

Here is the quotes:

"In the tri-county area, Dade is considered the county with the most talent but Broward county has plenty! And I’ve always said that if your head is above the crowd in a place like Miami, you’re probably an elite athlete on a level that folks outside of that area don’t necessarily appreciate. Well Juwan certainly stood out because this past season he was rated defensive player of the year in Broward county. Some of you may be wondering why Juwan isn’t more well known. Juwan was a transfer to American Heritage this year. The school he attended before that doesn’t do a good job of getting kids film out or networking with coaches. Unfortunately that is the fate of a lot of great athletes and in a world where publicity can be more important than talent…a lot of kids get looked over for that reason.

Read the whole article if you haven't already. If Syracuse lands Dowels, it will be another step in the evolution of our recruiting.
