American Heritage-Delray lost in the state title game a year ago, however plenty of talent returns. This program seems to get deeper every year, here is a look at some of the top prospects and how they fared against Manatee.

Greg Bryant is clearly one of the top two-way players in the state. The 5'10, 195 pound junior made a big impact at both RB and CB. He has been talked about recruiting wise mainly at RB, he looks like a future power back with patience and vision there. Bryant has good speed, it remains to be seen if it is deep speed. One thing is for certain, he immediately competes with Brian Poole for the state's most intimidating corner award. He has the pure cover tools to play there, but most likely would be a safety down the road. Bryant will be recruited by high BCS schools.

Classmate Marcus Davis is the team's QB. A dynamic athlete, his future will be at wide receiver or cornerback. This is a player that can fly and when you combine that with his toughness, it is easy to see why he will be one of Palm Beach's top prospects in 2013. Davis does not have great size, but his athleticism will make him a coveted prospect, most likely at CB. Edwin Thomas is a dynamo athletically. He has all the speed and quickness, but is rather small at 5'7. It is easy to see why great things happen with the ball in his hands. Could play RB or in the slot in college.

A pair of players have some developing to do, but could make an impact down the road. Roderick Johnson certainly looks the part at 6'4, 265ish, the 2013 OL/DL is built right. He plays too high and needs to learn the finer points of the position. Hopefully he improves with each game. Darrell Langham is a 2014 WR that has great length at 6'3+. He'll need to become a more fluid athlete, but he certainly has the chance to be a player that attracts attention down the road.

Several senior prospects will play football in college. Nick Lasala was very active at the OLB position. He made a number of quality plays sideline to sideline. Arthur Crouse played both ways and made an impact. He is a great football player that just needs to add some weight. Running back Jeremy Gaskins spells Bryant and he is a steady back that runs hard inside. He will get looks from both D-1 and 1-AA schools.

A couple of players did not log a lot of reps in Cameron Posey and Tyler Provo. Posey is a long 2012 WR that holds a couple of D-1 offers. He did punt on Wednesday night, but was not involved offensively. Provo is yet another 2013 prospect, this one a TE. His brother, Nick, plays at Syracuse and Tyler has already earned an offer.
