Newberry (Fla.) High School safety/wide receiver/running back Monte Seabrook is quietly having one of the better years statistically in central Florida high school football. The senior, who is 6-foot-0 and 185-pounds, received his first major college football scholarship offer last week and according to Newberry assistant coach Bart Brooks the senior may have another soon to follow.
“Utah has officially offered Monte,” said Coach Brooks of the Utes offering Seabrook. “East Carolina is supposed to be coming down on their off week and I think they may be close to offering.”
Seabrook is having a fantastic year. The kind of year that is sure to draw the attention of college recruiters who are turning over every stone in the state trying to find dynamic athletes that remain unfound on the talent rich football fields of Florida. The senior leads Newberry in both rushing and receiving and is fourth on the team in tackles.
The dynamic athlete has carried the ball 37 times for 440 yards and five touchdowns. Seabrook has also amassed 225 yards receiving with one going for a score. On defense Seabrook has 29 total tackles and two passes broken up; three caused fumble and five interceptions this season. The ball-hawking safety has 11 interceptions in his career. Did I mention that the talented athlete also returns kickoffs and punts? This season he is averaging 25 yards per kickoff return and over 14 yards per punt return.
“Monte loves to hit and he is fast,” said Coach Brooks of some of the qualities that make Seabrook a FBS caliber recruit.
