Slam Dunk Contestant: Marquis Haynes, University Christian

By

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — When it comes to dunking, Marquis Haynes is so talented that we’ve decided to include him in our slam dunk competition for the second year in a row.

This senior at University Christian was a key member of the Christians state championship football team this past fall.  The defensive end has verbally commited to play football at the University of North Carolina. 

While football is his best sport, Marquis uses his freakish athletic ability to dunk a basketball as well as anyone on the First Coast.

Voting for our slam dunk contest will begin later this week.

Here are the other contestants that we have video of so far:

Grayson Allen from Providence

Kenny Council, North Florida Educational Institute

Richard Bryson, St. Augustine High School
