Media day is the signal for football. In Orlando, that media day just took place in the downtown Orlando area and it was a really good turnout. Great to have football back and the setup was top-notch by the host organization, Varsity Sports Network.
Varsity Sports Network broadcasts Florida prep football 12 months a year. That’s what it started as and will continue to be all about. With that, the Amway Center in downtown Orlando hosted all the media, coaches, players and staff. It was a great way to gain valuable information about several top-notch recruits via interviews and photographs, and also a chance to see younger players that will be coming up the ranks.
A few highlights from the event included getting to know Orlando (Fla.) Evans Head Coach Kenard Lang. He’s a former Evans player himself that went onto Miami and then the NFL. Despite his own football success, he’s giving back to his community and loves coaching. A detailed article about Coach Lang and the Evans program will kickstart Sunday’s coverage, so be ready for that. He has quite a bit of talent returning, and big plans for Evans High School Football.
Some of the players that were interviewed include Boone offensive tackle Leyton Nelson and his Head Coach Andy Johnson, Apopka cornerback Nikai Martinez and defensive lineman Kaven Call, and West Orange wide receiver Jayden Gibson among others.
Before diving into more information about many of the other players people will see tomorrow and throughout early this next week, here are a couple of video reels and several photos from the Orlando Media Day hosted by Varsity Sports Network.
Look for several interviews, prospect analysis, podcasts, and coaching perspectives from Saturday’s media day starting Sunday morning. There’s more going on in the Orlando area than the vast majority of people realize. Orlando and its surrounding cities provide fantastic prep football talent for everyone to witness.
