A look at the Central Rockets 

August, 11, 2011
With training camps around Florida opening this weekend and kickoff less than three weeks away it's time to profile some of the state's top programs and players.

Miami Central had 16 players commit to FBS programs from last season's state championship team and has reloaded the roster for another run in 2011.

School: Central Rockets
City: Miami
Coach: Telly Lockette
2010 record: 14-1 (Won Class 6A championship)

Top prospect: What four-star defensive back Donaldven Manning lacks in size (5-foot-9, 165 pounds) he makes up for with his instincts, quickness and ability to read the quarterback. In other words, he's a perfect fit for Virginia Tech, the program he committed to in February. Manning is also extremely competitive and is eager to show the college coaches around the state what they have missed out on.
