The Inland Empire Ducks 14-and-under football team (American Youth League) better known as the I.E. Ducks, ended the 2015-2016 season ranked as the No. 2 overall unlimited football team in the nation according to Generation Nexxt. Posting a (14-1) record, which consisted of national competition, the Ducks added to their trophy case, by winning the AYF National Championship as well as their local SCFYFL League title.
Everyone knows, in organized football, your team will only go as far as the trenches will allow them -- and the IE Ducks don't lack size nor production. The Ducks' interior lineman, George Adam Miki-Han who's a class of 2021 prospect -- anchored the trenches at offensive line, playing both guard and center. He's recognized nationally, as one of the top road graders in the nation.
Based on film and standing on the sideline, Generation Nexxt quickly noticed, Miki-Han doesn't and will not, back down from competition. He rarely loses a battle, and he's surprisingly quick and an extremely active, for someone his size standing 6-foot-1, 300-pounds.
The four-time youth football All-American selection, has the frame, toughness, talent and smarts (3.5 weighted GPA) to find his way on someone's varsity football roster this upcoming fall.
The nation's Top 3 overall interior lineman is still undecided regarding which high school he'll enroll this upcoming fall, but he (Miki-Han) made it known, it will be three of the following well-recognized programs he will suit-up for which consist of: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco, or Serra-Gardena. Lineman are the most important pieces, when determining the success of a footnall program year in-and-year out.
Miki-Han isn't only a massive and athletic big-guy, but he also has the DNA stream -- consisting of two generations of division one caliber talent. His father, George Miki (University of Hawaii) and grandfather, Paul Han (USC) has set the foundation, and he's certainly making the family proud -- as an honor roll student-athlete including averaging three pancake per game.
His goals over the next four-years consist of big goals, ranging from playing varsity as freshman, maintaining a high GPA, becoming an All-American selection, receiving an invite for the the Nike Opening and finally, make the Rivals' 5 Star Challenge.
