Mundial Sports Network, the leading Latino Sports website, is proud to congratulate the 2014 Best Of The Best Finalists. This is the third class of finalists since its inception in 2012.

The Mundial Sports Network will contact each of our 4 finalists and their schools to coordinate next steps for their Leadership Luncheon in January, 2015. In addition, a member of our Futbol Mundial Magazine editorial staff will reach out to our Honorable Mention athletes and schools to document and publish their profile.
Friday was the last day to vote for North Dallas High senior Ricardo Gonzalez in the Mundial Sports Network's Best of the Best athletic leadership scholarship.
"I'm really grateful for everyone supporting me," Ricardo said in an email. "It's a great thing seeing the Latino people and others support me. Thank you very much."
Ricardo is now eligible to receive a spread in the Futbol Mundial publication; $1,000 scholarship – $500 to the student and $500 to the school program; and a Leadership Awards luncheon or dinner at their school to present the Best of the Best honor.

Future promising for ND
Despite a 2-8 record this season, North Dallas High football coach Charles Moss was pleased with the Bulldogs’ progress this season.
“Based on our season improvements, I predict that we will be in the state playoffs next season,” he said in an email.
One of the highlights this season was the play of junior running back Geovani Manning.
“I think Geovani played exceptionally this season,” Moss said.
Moss rated the top five highlights of the season.
1. Junior running back Geovani Manning rushing for 1,393 yards in nine games on the season.
Note: Manning also scored 16 touchdowns, despite missing most of the game against Hillcrest and not playing against Woodrow Wilson because of an ankle injury
2. Kicker-punter Luis Chaparro being featured in the NFL Tomorrow We Make Football program.
Note: Chaparro’s recognition on NBC took the team to AT&T Stadium and an opportunity to meet Cowboys legend Michael Irvin, and then he had the chance to run on the field with the Cowboys, before their game against the New Orleans Saints.
3. Wide receiver Roderick Johnson developing and playing well late in second half of the season.
Note: Johnson, a junior, caught seven passes (of his total 14 receptions), and three touchdowns in the last three games. He also played cornerback, and returned an interception for a touchdown against TJ.
4. Increased participation in the program.
Note: Coach Moss says the number of athletes playing football almost doubled from his first year. This season, he’s losing eight seniors, so most of the players will be back next season and will be used to playing in the same system.
5. James Crayton maturing as a football player on both sides of the ball.
