The 2015 Piper football season was a rallying point in the city of Sunrise, Fla. When it
came to football, it’d been a long
time since Piper High School had
seen success like this—but it was
far from the first time.
Late in the year, the Bengals
found themselves 8-0 and in
playoff contention for the first
time in more than a decade. New
coach David Coleman’s hard-nosed
style of coaching paid dividends
at the high school home of former
NFL stars like Quadtrine Hill and
Bennie and Brian Blades, as well as
current pro players Ken Bishop and
The program finished the year
9-2, with the school’s first playoff
appearance in 12 seasons and
first winning season since a
Hurricane Wilma-hampered 5-3
record in 2005.
With 14 starters back from
last year’s team, Coleman and the
Bengals don’t feel like they were
just a one-hit wonder in 2015.
They feel like they’re just starting
to put together an album loaded
“The community is coming
along, and the school and administration is incredible,” Coleman
said. “I can honestly say that I
have the best administration—
support wise—of almost anyone.
It makes my job here so much
easier. They are even working on
getting all of our home games
streamed live for our alumni and
Coleman has reached out to
the greater Piper community—even
inviting the members of the 1979
district championship Piper team
to be a part of things last year. The
alumni appreciated the recognition,
and the current players got a feel
for tradition. They learned that
winning at Piper didn’t miraculously
begin when they walked in the
doors in August 2015, and it surely
didn’t end in November 2015. That
1979 team—men who are now in
their 50s—also went 9-1 in the
Defense was a definitely staple
last year, as the Bengals held
opponents to a touchdown or less
in five of the nine wins. And while
the program did take its lumps
against district champion Deerfield
Beach and in its first-round playoff
matchup with Flanagan—the rest of
the season was pure bliss.
Keep in mind—this program
had won 18 total games in the 7
years prior to 2015. There was no
such thing as an easy win in recent
years, but an increase in discipline
has made it happen.
“Fans should come visit this fall
because it’s going to be exciting,”
Coleman said. “We were 9-1 in the
regular season and 5-0 at home.
We are looking to build off that
success and go even further. You
don’t want to miss that.”
On defense, Coleman once
again has the player who
became sort of a signature of the
turnaround—senior DB/LB Kevin
Bien-Aime. He was a key cog in
last year’s defense who originally
played for Coleman in 2013 when
he was an assistant coach at
nearby Taravella HS. He ended
up transferring to Piper because
of what he admits were “maturity
issues” in a story written last year.
But he was a great example of the
transformation last year—
embracing the new style and thriving
within it. He’ll join talented senior
DB Kaory Simmons—who received
some postseason recognition last
year and has early scholarship
offers from Idaho, Northern
Illinois and Miami (Ohio). Fellow
DB Byrand Rincher has Idaho and
Temple offers and is a track and
Obviously, the secondary is in
good hands and will be a huge
strength. As Coleman said, the
preceding colleges have come to
south Florida looking for speed—
and at Piper, they have found it.
Offensively, QBs Derohn King
and Rashawn Fraser will be looking
to targets like 6-foot- 2 Raevon
Clarke and 6-foot-0 Ja’Quez Geffrard—who have offers from Miami
(Ohio) and Idaho respectively. How
they pan out offensively remains
to be seen, and it’ll need to be improved, Coleman said. The O-line is
a focal point. Willbermane Louima
is one of those lineman, a senior
who stands 6-foot- 4, 290 pounds.
He and junior Edward Spurgeon
(6-2/340) will be counted on.
“This spring we have really
improved on the offensive line,”
Coleman said. “I thought it was our
weakest position group, but they
have greatly improved.”
