Reve Is One To Watch In Miami
Jermaine Reve, Miami Northwestern, recently completed a strong junior campaign for the Bulls, and tried out for the South Florida Express 7on7 team last week in Miami. Although he was not picked for the team, Reve, a high school linebacker, worked out at defensive back, and showed great promise of things to come. "I knew it would be tough to make this team, but I thought I did real well today," Reve said of the tryout camp. "I did pretty good as a junior at Northwestern, and I'm hoping to have a big senior season this year." "I didn't really have the year I was hoping for as a junior, and my stats were down from my sophomore season," he admitted. "As a sophomore, I had 80 tackles and forced six fumbles. Last year, I had an interception, and three fumble recoveries, but my tackle numbers were down, and I finished with 65." "Last year, I alternated between linebacker and safety, but later they kept me at strong safety only," he explained. "I want to play both safety positions this year, because I definitely want to play safety at the next level. I've been timed in the 4.5 range, but I need to work on my coverage skills." Reve, 6-foot, 175-pounds, is hoping to play football in college, and is open to hearing from everyone. "I'm getting a lot of letters from schools right now," he stated. "I'm hearing from a lot of SEC schools, and schools like Michigan, Stanford and Georgia Tech. I'm hoping to hear from Miami, because I like that program a lot. I do real well in the classroom, and I'm carrying a 3.6 GPA." He states that distance won't be a factor in choosing a school, and he is looking for a school that is strong academically, as well as on the football field. "Distance from home isn't a problem for me at all," he said. "I'm going to college to get the best education I can. If that takes me out of the state of Florida, that's just the way it will have to be. I'd love to go away, because I've never done any traveling before. I just need to improve my footwork to become a more solid defensive back, and I'm working hard on that. I'm jusy looking for a chance to play college football."
