Cape Coral Seahawk's flying under the radar

Josh Monteagudo

Cape Coral was 11-0 heading into a second round playoff showdown with Charlotte. The Seahawk's came up a little short which ended their season earlier than expected. It is a new year and further change comes in new head coach Brad Metheny who comes over from Frostproof. While the losses to graduation were heavy, more than enough talent returns for high playoff aspirations.

Holloway is the game-breaker

The top offensive play-maker is Prince Holloway and he should get the ball in a number of ways. Blessed with breakaway speed, Holloway can beat you deep, on screens, crossing routes, or with a handoff. He has started since he was a freshmen and should see time on both sides of the ball as well as special teams. Holloway is joined by Jovan Ojeda, Tyrece Jiles, and Tyrell Johnson on the outside. Johnson is just a sophomore, but he flashed big play ability last year including a 90+ yard kickoff return in the playoffs.

Bryan Greenwell takes over at quarterback and he has some experience from the last two years. He throws an excellent ball and will be looked upon to be consistent as well as a team leader. Davis and Boyd took the lion's share of carries last year and the hope is that Pevin Lewis will step up this year. Lewis is an excellent athlete and averaged over six yards a carry in limited time. There is competition at the spot. The offensive line is a work in progress.

Defensively the big three returnees are middle linebacker Josh Monteagudo, safety/outside linebacker Chris Johnson, and defensive end Edsel Caprice. Caprice is an early commit to South Florida and racked up close to 20 sacks as a junior. He has elite athleticism and terrific pure speed. Monteagudo is a play-maker on defense. He showed it as a sophomore at Safety and as a junior at MLB. He has uncanny anticipation and is a physical presence in the middle.

Johnson can help a lot of different ways, one thing you don't have to worry about is him hitting....he will stick his head in there. He is a gifted athlete and almost certainly will have a big year. Ricardi Joseph moves from wide receiver to safety and he oozes potential at the spot. The 6'1, 180 pounder is already attracting D-1 interest despite limited experience. Andrew Iverson better known as "AI" is a jack of all trades and will play both ways along with Holloway.

Prognosis: Expectations are not as high as a year ago, but this team has plenty of talent. They won their three district contests 25-0, 54-21, and 24-14, so the other three teams have some catching up to do.

Big games outside of the district can be found in week two (September 10th) at Fort Myers, in the middle of the season (October 15th) against upstart Island Coast and the end the season at a talented Lehigh team(November 12th).

In the end the Seahawk's should find themselves in the playoffs once again and will almost certainly be a tough team to send home. If they can get out of the area(the first two rounds), Armwood will be waiting and they will present a stiff test.
