Former Freedom High and Zephyrhills High quarterback Tyler Guy will be a walk-on at the University of South Florida next year.
Guy passed for 1,640 yards and had 11 touchdowns with the Patriots team that set a school record with seven wins last season. As a junior with the Bulldogs he threw for 1,417 yards and seven touchdowns.
Guy was also a pitcher and first baseman in high school. He had a .400 batting average with two homeruns as a senior. He also had a 2-0 record with 22 strikeouts as a pitcher with Freedom.
The 6-foot-6 Guy is not sure if he will play baseball in college at this point.
Hunter Joyer takes state title
Wesley Chapel resident and Tampa Catholic High junior Hunter Joyer won the Class 2A shot put state title May 1, which is the second championship for the family.
Hunter won the title with a throw of 57 feet, 2.25 inches. His older brother, Kamran, took the 3A crown for Wesley Chapel High last year.
Hunter, 16, is also a fullback on the Tampa Catholic football team. He has several scholarship offers from Division I schools, but his father, Jack, said earlier this year his son will likely play at Stanford University because of the school’s academic standards and history of developing running backs.
