Freshman and Sophmore 1st Team All Conference Chabot College. Gateway Football and Academic Scholarship. Scholarship to University of Arkansas Monticello(UAM). Team captain and MVP. 3 NFL combine invites. Semipro champion. Not many can boast a resume like this, especially at the age of 27, but Southbeach Outlaws defensive end, Terrill “Dot” Vinson does and then some. Formerly known as rapper “Relly Dot”, Dot has been with Southbeach since their first year. Having been brought over by his brother Thad, who says playing with his brother is the best because, “you get to share in everything together.” He also stated that his brother plays “every down like it’s his last and is the most passionate person I know when it come to football and he will fight for every player on his team.” Coach Nick Iano commented, “If I were to have a team, Dot is the first person I’d want on my team.” The former All American high school wrestler, wants all “new recruits to make plays and shut up.” He would like to be remembered as the “GOAT” and has this advice for all haters, “BLOCK ME!” You can’t talk about Dot Vinson, and not mention the woman that has been by his side since high school, Patricia, who has enjoyed watching him “grow from a teenager into a man. Dot is from the projects, and he became an educated man who loves football, a great family man, who is now giving back to today’s youth.” She states that their son Juju and Dot can have have you “laughing all day.” With their new addition, Jeremiah Armani, coming soon, there’s no doubt Dot Vinson’s legacy will live on through his sons.

You can always count on him with the game on the line,” this said by a teammate of the Southbeach Outlaw’s 27yr old, 5’8, 200lb quaterback from San Leandro High School, and Cal Poly University graduate, Scottie Cordier. The former Contra Costa Razorback and Bay Area Nole is going on his fourth season with Southbeach. “It’s a privilige and honor to be able to play football with the caliber of men on the team. I am thankful I was asked to come back and play the past three seasons. The best part about being with Southbeach, is playing on team with a group of men I consider my friends.” When asked about advice to the “new recruits”, the very humble quarterback says, “If you truly love the sport and competition, come earn a spot at the Beach.” His greatest accomplishment in semi pro is winning the 2014 PCFL championship and says he only wants to be remembered as “earning respect from my teammates.” The ever humble qb is the first to give credit to someone else, he plays not for himself, but for the team as a whole. He strives for nothing more, than to bring that W home, not for himself, but his teammates. Scottie Cordier is the true definition of a “teammate”, and an integral assett to the Southbeach Outlaws.

Player Spotlight-City P

IMG_976968950708529Screenshot_2015-10-31-18-24-28To have a voice that can impact those on and off the field, is a challenge in itself, but to be able to do it in two completely different ways and stay humble at the same time, is near impossible. Yet, Rob “City P” Sherman, the 5’11, 279lb defensive lineman for the Southbeach Outlaws and popular Bay Area rapper, seems to do it with ease. After winning the PCFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 with the Golden State Giants, he came over to the then East Bay Outlaws. Not long after joining the squad, Rob and another player founded the ‘Avenger’s Defense’, and history was made. The next season, 2014, the Southbeach Outlaws went on to win the PCFL championship, with the ‘Avenger’s D’ leading the way.  Rob states that his biggest accomplishment in semi pro to date, is”Being a leader on a championship team comprised of men that I love and respect. I am grateful that I got to do it, and I got to do it in fine style.” His advice to new “recruits” is to come, “Mentally and physically prepared. Competition is really strong, so you have to gain and keep that trust. You have to be ready to sacrifice your personal glory for the goal of the team. You have to be open to harsh criticism. You have to be able to perform and thrive under pressure. And. you have to put work in on your own and be able to keep up and have fun because that’s our style.”  He sees “#RFU, #HappyHalloween every Saturday for qbs and rbs, the #AvengersD being who we are and being a POWERHOUSE that people will speak of with reverence years from now” in Southbeach’s future. Rob would like to be remembered as a “Good friend and teammate.Every year people talk about who is the best, and I feel honored and blessed to see my name brought up for the past 5yrs, especially since I’m kinda undersized at this position. But more so, I’d love to be remembered as someone who took the time and cared enough to prepare for the sake of the tea. Someone who pooled all his resources to play the best he could.” Rob Sherman embodies all the attributes that enable him to be the great football player, teammate, leader, rapper, friend and man that he is. He is truly a Superhero.
