Lessons Learned: IMG SE Regional

BRADENTON, Fla. -- The IMG 7-on-7 Southeast Regional had many of the prominent athletes in the state of Florida on display over the weekend. In Bradenton on the campus of the IMG Academy, 14 teams from all around the state went head-to-head showing off their skills in the passing game on offense and defense.

Underclassmen stand out

With all the big-named rising senior participants spread out over the field, it was truly the underclassmen who stood out. Jacques Patrick (Orlando, Fla./Timber Creek), a prospect with more than 30 offers, was as advertised. Ryan Davis (St. Petersburg, Fla./Northeast) showed great quickness and agility, making opponents miss in cramped quarters on several occasions. Shawn Burgess-Becker (Coconut Creek, Fla./Monarch) displayed elite athleticism and consistent hands. Deondre Francois (Orlando, Fla./Olympia) was among the top quarterbacks. And Nate Craig (Dade City, Fla./Pasco) and Byron Cowart (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) captured some attention, though Craig is a 2016 prospect.
