Athlete Cory Goldsby of the Davie Broncos (11U) -- is recognized as one of the most prolific and versatile football players in So. Florida, for the class of 2023, after recently, reclassifying. He can catch it, run it, return it, or even throw it. The Broncos' three-way playmaker is primarily a cornerback, and a very good one, but also caught 14 touchdown passes on offense and returned one kick for a touchdown on special teams.
The definition of a "shutdown cornerback" often varies. Some see it as a player who can take away a team’s go-to wide receiver, either in man-to-man or zone coverage. Regardless of the definition, Cory Goldsby is as close to being a shutdown corner as they come, especially when I make you aware of his history the past few seasons on the gridirion or should I say his island.
Goldsby has proved to be a shutdown corner, despite the league or much-publicized events. The Generation Nexxt first-team All-Broward selection, hasn't allowed a receiving touchdown in seven seasons. Which also consisted of five all-star games and two all-american bowl. That's roughly, in a range of 75-85 games, which is unheard of, especially this day-and-age with pass happy offenses.
Goldsby, a honor roll student -- who attends (private school) Semionle Middle School -- wrapped up an impressive All-Star outing, accounting for nine touchdowns on fifteen catches, and of course zero touchdowns on his side of the field. Speaking of Semionale, his God father is Chauncey Stovall (short stint in NFL), ranked as the No. 2 junior college receiver and FSU graduate. He (Goldsby) plans to major in Business Management come his freshman year of college.
His favorite college football team is he Oregon Ducks and at the professional ranks, the Seattle Seahawks. His favorite food is pizza and his top three high schools are St. Thomas Aquinas, American Heritage (Plantation) and Cardinal Gibbons. His family and coaches pushes him to be great, inside and outside of the classroom.
The two-time league champion -- scored 26 touchdowns in one season and will be without question -- a Top 10 prospect in South Florida for the Class of 2023. His goal is to be one of the top two-way athletes in the country. His worst game at corner was allowing two catches for roughly twenty-five yards over seven seasons.
