Nathaniel "Traz" Powell was an outstanding end for the Rattlers in the late 1940s. Powell was elected to the FHSAA All-Century football team. Powell, who was the first black athlete to score a touchdown in the Orange Bowl stadium, went on to become one of the top coaches in the pre-integration Florida Interscholastic Athletic Association. He compiled a 167-37-3 career record over 21 years from 1949 through 1969 as head coach at Miami's Carver and Mays high schools. The football stadium at Miami-Dade College was renamed in his honor in 1988.
