Florida Kids Pre-Season Football Top 100 For 2006

LeBrandon Glover, PENSACOLA

As we have done for the past 30 plus years, we give you the first list of rising juniors from the state of Florida. While the list will change several times over the next 18 months, this is a "subjective" starting point from people who have watched these players perform.

Once again, Florida Kids gives you some names for the future, and as we have done for three decades, we give them to you first so you can get a jump on the rest of the state when it comes to following football.

The Class of 2006 is loaded with athletes as we showcase each and every year. Keep in mind, this is the first list that you will find for this class. It is only a starting point. Something that college coaches look at to get a jump on the future as well as planning for next year. It is a list that the MSL Combine and the Nike Camp will use to start sending out invitations for next spring.

Remember, this is just a starting point and the final list for this class will be out in January of 2006, which gives players a chance to climb on this list and also give those already mentioned the opportunity to stay there.

This list is a product of watching these players perform at camp and combine settings as well as in game action.

We hope that you enjoy this first ever look at the Florida High School Football Class of 2006.
