The North Miami Beach Sundevils beat the South Kendall Gators 24-0 to win the 12U (130 pound) Super Bowl of the Miami Xtreme Youth Football League at Ted Hendricks Stadium at Milander Park in Hialeah.
The game was closer than the score indicates as the Sundevils (11-1) pulled away with 18 points in the fourth quarter.
The opposing coaches chose the game MVP for each team. North Miami Beach selected Camron Jones, who dominated on defense with several tackles in the backfield, as the Gators game MVP. South Kendall acknowledged Sundevils quarterback Horace Atkins but gave the North Miami Beach game MVP nod to offensive and defensive lineman Ezekiel Figueroa, the only one to contain Jones.
Leading 6-0 early in the fourth quarter, North Miami Beach coaches, during a timeout, assigned Figueroa on Jones, and the move worked. On the next play, Figueroa stopped Jones, allowing Ebelson Raphael to take the handoff and race around the right side for a 37-yard touchdown and a 12-0 lead.
It didn’t take long for North Miami Beach to score again. Wesly Joseph recovered a fumble for the Sundevils on the ensuing possession, and Atkins made them pay by throwing a long pass to Edgardo San Martin who then dashed for a touchdown covering 60 yards with 8:46 remaining.
Wilkins Senexant made a big tackle on kick coverage, and Phon’te Mannings recorded a sack to help set-up the final score, an 8-yard touchdown run by Davondre Coeur.
San Martin also caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Atkins to give the Sundevils a 6-0 advatange with 42 seconds left in the opening quarter. Kraig Eniste had a fumble recovery, and Raphael intercepted a pass, caught a 25-yard pass from Atkins and had a couple of pass breakups, one to help set-up his own score. Keyon Breilla defended a pass, and Patrell Nadal added a 25-yard run. Atkins had a first down run, and San Martin broke two tackles to nearly score another before halftime.
South Kendall’s Trenard Wilson intercepted a pass in the end zone in the first quarter to thwart a drive, and Andre Harvey made a key tackle to stymie a fake punt. Jones registered several solid tackles, including one on fourth down to force a change of possession.

Jose Fonseca didn’t just cause and recover two fumbles for Kendall B&G, but he twice took the ball from the arms of Patriots. Montgomery later stopped the Kolts on fourth-and-three to end a threat in the red zone, but then Dwayne Mason recovered a fumble for Kendall B&G. The Kolts utilized the running of Stephen Roig, Puig and Ucros and took advantage of pass interference to set-up Puig’s second 1-yard touchdown run just six seconds before halftime. Ucros kicked another 2-pointer, and the Kolts led 16-0.

FOURTH TIME THE CHARM: Coach Ryan Jackson's North Miami Beach Sundevils won the 12U (130-pound) Super Bowl for his first championship in four Super Bowl appearances.
MUMS THE WORD: In the 12U (130-pound) Super Bowl between the North Miami Beach Sundevils and South Kendall Gators, coaches from opposing teams did not talk to one another during game week. That's not unusual, but in this case it was.
The North Miami Beach and South Kendall coaches are friends and usually talk football shop each and every week on the phone ... but of course not the week of their big Super Bowl match-up against each other.
Rumor has it, though, one coach did call one of the opposing coaches asking (jokingly) his game plan. The answer: click.
SMART ROOKIE: John Gay led the West Miramar Patriots Pee Wees to a Super Bowl title in his first year coaching youth football. Gay is a former star basketball player at American High School and Howard University. After earning a degree at Howard, he obtained his master's degree from the University of Miami. He is currently the CEO of taxdrz.com.
MILLER TIME: Miami Dolphins star running back Lamar Miller attended the 14U (160-pound) Super Bowl between the Ives Estates Thunder and North Miami Beach Sundevils. The former University of Miami standout offered some encouraging words at halftime to Ives Estates power running back/blocker Emmanuel St. Germain. Following the Super Bowl, North Miami Beach coaches named St. Germain the Thunder’s game MVP.
