Haynes makes history

USF basketball has been around for 37 years and during that time Manatee County has produced quite a few standout basketball players.

But as hard as it might be to believe not until today (April 14th) did a Manatee County basketball player receive a scholarship to play for the Bulls.

It ended when Shedrick Haynes signed a letter of intent with USF. The six-foot combo guard played two years of basketball for Palmetto High and one for the former Manatee Community College after sitting out a season due to an injury.

The 22 year-old had to jump through a lot of hoops to make this happen. Read the entire story in Thursday’s Bradenton Herald.
