Miami showing late recruiting interest in Dwyer's Daniel Parr and Vero Beach's Carter Stanley

Following a late decommitment from Tampa-Hillsborough quarterback Dwayne Lawson, the University of Miami is suddenly showing interest in a pair of area signal callers as National Signing Day rapidly approaches.

On Wednesday, the Hurricanes reached out about Dwyer's Daniel Parr and Vero Beach's Carter Stanley, according to both of their head coaches.

Lawson, rated as a 4-star recruit by 247 Sports, announced on twitter Thursday night that he had officially decommitted from the University of Miami. Lawson's decision, which the Miami coaching staff was made aware of prior to Thursday according to Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels, left the Hurricanes scrambling to add another quarterback for their 2015 recruiting class.

According to Daniels, offensive coordinator James Coley reached out to him on Wednesday night, asking if Parr, an FAU commit, would consider switching to Miami. Daniels said Parr thought about the offer, but ultimately decided to honor his commitment to the Owls. Parr, who earned Class 7A Player of the Year honors in 2013, signed a financial-aid agreement with FAU last week and plans to enroll at the school in January.

In addition to Parr, the Canes also reached to Vero Beach head coach Lenny Jankowski, inquiring about Stanley. Jankowski said no offer was made at the time for Stanley. On Thursday, the Fighting Indians' signal caller, who previously held just one offer from Colgate, was offered by the University of Connecticut.

The senior, who served as the team's back-up the previous two years, threw for over 3,000 yards and 40 touchdown, en route to leading Vero Beach to an 11-2 record with an appearance in the Class 8A Regional Semifinals. Stanley also ran for over 500 yards and 7 touchdowns during the season.

-American Heritage clinched the District 13-2A regular season title Wednesday with its 2-1 win over Oxbridge Academy. With that top seed, the Stallions avoid both Benjamin and Oxbridge Academy until the district playoff final. The success of the team this season has been due to its star freshman. Forward Allison Breed has 17 goals and 6 assists this campaign.

-Benjamin remains comfortably at the number two spot. The Bucs do not have another game until the postseason begins. Offensively, a fantastic trio of players has led the attack. Mayra Pelayo, Kylie Borislow and Katie O’Hare have accounted for 36 of 56 goals this season.

-Vero Beach holds steady at number three. Scoring has come easy for the Fighting Indians, netting on average, 5.08 goals per game. Outside of a possible rematch against Jupiter in the District 10-5A district playoff final, there may not be another team that could contend with Vero until the Class 5A regional final.

-Park Vista is allowing 0.38 goals per game, with 10 shutouts. This veteran Cobras starting XI is eyeing a chance at a deep postseason run. Park Vista hosts Wellington on Friday in a district seeding game. If Park Vista wins, it will be tied with Palm Beach Central, and a coin toss will determine who earns the top seed in District 11-5A. However, a Wellington win would give Palm Beach Central the top seed, followed by Wellington and Park Vista.

-West Boca has dropped three of its last four games, being outscored 10-2 in that span. However, the Bulls have been battling multiple injuries this whole season. Most recently,  forwards Bridget Clark and Madisyn Pelchat have spent time on the bench. The winter break could not come soon enough for this team.

-Wellington is inching closer to the top elite teams in the area. The Wolverines are on a five game winning streak with victories over Spanish River and South Fork during that span. Sophomore midfielder Samantha Grebinar and junior forward Riley Nicholson have been phenomenal thus far. The two have accounted for 25 goals.  

-While Palm Beach Central is currently the top seed in District 11-5A, the Broncos continue to slip in the latest polls with their weak non-district schedule. Similar to the College Football Playoff committee’s assessment of Florida State, the Broncos are winning but suffer with their lack of quality victories.

-Jupiter handled a hot Dwyer team on Monday with a 3-0 win. The Warriors hold six defensive shutouts on the season.

-Oxbridge Academy could be the spoiler team in the District 13-2A playoffs. The Thunderwolves have played both American Heritage and Benjamin tough this season.

-There is not one team that can contend with Martin County in District 13-4A. While South Fork lost to them 1-0 a couple weeks ago, the Tigers are just looking sharp. They have outscored their opponents 74-19, with nine blank sheets by goalkeeper Elizabeth Moberg.

-American Heritage proved on Monday why its the most superior team in the area. A full strength Stallions squad routed Pahokee 7-0, further cementing their position. Their 3-0 lost to Benjamin last week is insignificant as a number of Stallions were in North Carolina representing their travel teams in the National League tournament.

-Jupiter passed its first adversity test of the season Monday by defeating Dwyer 3-2 after being down 2-1 at halftime. The Warriors should cruise in the District 10-5A playoffs and have their eyes set on hosting a regional quarterfinal game, barring any mental meltdowns by the still very young starting XI.

-Palm Beach Central holds steady at number three. The Broncos beat Port St. Lucie 3-1 Monday. It is now time to focus on the postseason. Historically, the program has struggled on the big stage.  Last season, PBC lost to Boca Raton 5-2 in the district finals, in which the Broncos led 2-0 early. This season, the Broncos will be the top seed in the District 11-5A playoffs.

-Palm Beach Lakes is one of two undefeated soccer teams left in the area, after they shutout Royal Palm Beach 2-0 Monday. However, I still do not believe that they are legit contenders. Lets see it in the playoffs. Until then, I still have my doubts.

-Atlantic is still struggling offensively. The Eagles have failed to score a goal in six matches this season.

-Spanish River is currently the second seed in District 11-5A. However, similar to Palm Beach Lakes, lets see those wins in the postseason. The Sharks hold four draws in district play.

-Royal Palm Beach has a huge district contest with Boca Raton upon return from the winter break. This is a rescheduled game from November because of conflicts with the football playoffs. If Royal Palm Beach wins, it will clinch the second seed in District 11-5A. Meanwhile, a Boca Raton win will earn them the number three seed.

-St. Andrew’s earned a forfeit win over Pope John Paul II Monday. The Scots are the biggest threats to American Heritage in the District 13-2A playoffs.

-Do not put to much value into John I. Leonard’s record. The Lancers were undefeated before their star forward got suspended for reckless play in November. He will be back next month.

-While numbers would say that Boca Raton is not a top ten team, history would differ. The Bobcats have won 12 consecutive district crowns and were in the Class 5A state title game a season ago. District 11-5A is wide open this season. Teams will want to avoid Boca as much as possible.

Willie Snead is swapping Palm Beach County schools.
 
Via a press release, Pope John Paul II announced on Friday morning that the long-time area head coach is leaving his job at Palm Beach Lakes to take over the football program at Pope John Paul II. Snead replaces Matt Dillon, who left the football program after a 3-7 season.
 
Snead, a Glades Central product who coached the Raiders to the 3A championship in 2006, deparated Belle Glade for a coaching position in Michigan after the 2007 season. He has spent the past three years at Palm Beach Lakes.
 
Palm Beach Lakes went 3-7 this past season and was 9-21 overall at the school.
 

Former Boca star Sebastian Elney gets chance to train with Tottenham Hotspur

Former Boca Raton high school soccer star Sebastian Elney is quite the man about Europe these days.
 
Currently being brought up through the Major League Soccer system with the Philadelphia Union Academy, Elney is, right now, in the United States U-18 Spain-based camp in advance of matches against Germany on Wednesday and Friday after an eight-day training stint in the English Premier League.
 
Elney, who is committed to Maryland, was on the training grounds of Tottenham Hotspur in north London at the beginning of December, an opportunity provided to him by U.S. Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who starred for Spurs in the mid-90's.
 
“It was a really good training experience. I had a great time,” said Elney, who helped Boca Raton to runner-up finish in last year's state tournament.
 
While Elney didn't get to work with Tottenham's top flight, he did get a chance to train with Spurs reserves including Kyle Walker, who was rehabbing from offseason abdominal surgery and made his first EPL appearance since last March in Saturday's Tottenham triumph over Swansea City.
 
In the upcoming matches against the German U-18 squad, Elney is hoping to build off of his strong showing in August when he tallied two second half goals to beat Hungary and help the Americans to an eventual International Tournament of Vaclav Jezek championship in the Czech Republic.
