Manatee quarterback Cord Sandberg has caught the eye of MaxPreps' Stephen Spiewak, who listed Sandberg as one of the top 100 players to watch for the Class of 2013.
The players were listed alphabetically.
The lefty-slinging Sandberg has already received five offers, according to rivals.com, with Auburn, Cincinatti, Clemson, Iowa State and Western Kentucky vying for his services thus far.
Manatee opens the regular season against nationally-ranked Our Lady of Good Counsel in Olney, Md., and then hosts powerhouse Don Bosco Prep out of New Jersey on Sept. 16, a pair of games that are already meriting national attention. If Sandberg performs well, his stock will even rise.
Sandberg, the Hurricanes and the rest of the area football teams officially begin practice Monday.
