He is also the second player from University School to commit to the Orangemen. Two weeks ago, teammate Brice Hawkes committed. Beaulieu is also the fourth player from University School to commit to a Division-I school from the 2010 class.

Though they are nowhere on his list, do not count out the University of Miami as a candidate for St. Thomas Aquinas High School athlete Lamarcus Joyner.

Foley and Luc Win Honors Then Lead Titans to First Playoff Win

2009 Continues to be a season of first for Treasure Coast High School football. For the first time in their history they have two players on the All FACA All District team. For the first time in their history they have an All 6-A player for the FACA District. For the first time in their history they have reached the playoffs and for the first time in their history they have won a playoff contest.

Two athletes who have played a big part in these achievements were on full display on Thursday. Early in the day, linebacker Ed Foley was voted to the All FACA District team along with his teammate, the highly recruited Jeff Luc. The FACA District covers 47 teams and covers the very fertile ground from Vero Beach to the North and Boca Raton to the South. It also stretches far enough West to include Pahokee and Belle Glade. You don’t need to be from the state of Florida to have an idea of what kind of talent that includes.

Glenville’s Latwan Anderson Goes Off

Senior’s Four Interceptions Leads Team to Playoff Win

He has proclaimed himself to be “the best in the nation” and Friday Night he stated his case. Senior transfer Latwan Anderson paid big dividends for Glenville High School and head coach Ted Ginn Sr. when plucked four St. Ignatius passes and returned them a combined 196 yards. Anderson’s biggest theft came as St. Ignatius was trying to state a comeback. Down 23-13, St. Ignatius drove into the red zone with the threat of a score. That was until Anderson stepped in front of a Mark Myer’s pass and raced 99 yards the other way for a touchdown. “That was the best game of my life,” Anderson was quoted as saying after the game. You can view Anderson’s exploits video amongst the other big plays in the exciting game from the video below courtesy of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Anderson’s jersey number is #1 (there’s a surprise!)

11/10/09: Video of the Day: Jeremy Tabuyo – WR – Saint Louis School (Hawaii)

Not many freshmen make it into the Video of the Day section but this guy is worthy.  Showing you that they can play football in Hawaii,  Jeremy Tabuyo will show you a strong set of fundamentals,  heart and desire.  Tabuyo is one of the more polished freshmen wide receivers that I have seen posted on Gridironstuds.com and it’s a testament to his hard work.  Tabuyo displays great hands as he goes out and gets the football.  Speaking of going out and getting something,  Tabuyo is tenacious on the down field blocking.  Blocking is low down on the list for most wide receivers but not this guy.  Tabuyo brings visions of Hines Ward to mind as he gets after cornerbacks, safeties and unsuspecting linebackers trying to pursue his teammates.  His highlight video is a training reel for coaches to show their wideouts how stalk blocking is supposed to be done.  The future is bright for this youngster who is prohibited under Hawaii private school rules from playing Varsity football as a freshman.  Nevertheless he has varsity skills and varsity speed (4.56) so 2010 will be a coming out party.  Watch Jeremy Tabuyo’s highlight video,  it’s a treat, click here.
