SOUTHWEST MIAMI HIGH SCHOOL EAGLES FOOTBALL
WILLIE CARTER SIGNS WITH CLARKE
Senior defensive back Willie Carter has signed with Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa. The school will be fielding its first football team in fall 2019 and Carter was one of the highlights of its inaugural signing class. Carter's teammate, Herman Rodriguez, received an offer from North Park University in Chicago but has not yet signed. Rodriguez is an outstanding student and NPU is a top producer of Fulbright scholars so the school may be a good fit. Former Eagle Te’corey Tutson signed with Fort Hayes State University in Kansas.
FOUR EAGLES NAMED HONORABLE MENTION ALL-DADE
Four Southwest players have been named Honorable Mention All-Dade by the Miami Herald. Senior offensive lineman Herman Rodriguez, senior wide receiver/defensive back Willie Carter, junior quarterback/defensive back/punter Jordan Worley and junior linebacker Nick Serrano were all honored.

JV FINISHES SEASON UNSCORED UPON
The Southwest Junior Varsity defeated visiting Killian, 8-0, to finish its season unbeaten and unscored upon. The Baby Eagles scored late in the second quarter and it was all the defense needed. Southwest outscored its four opponents, 86-0, this season. Congratulations to head coach Marty Wild and his assistant Roberto Fatjo.
