Winter Haven’s Bryant named top player in polk County

Keyshawn Bryant became the third player under head coach Tyrone Woodside to score more than 1,000 points in his career at Winter Haven, joining Devon Walker and Chance McSpadden. An athletic, explosive player, Bryant, who had two 40-point games, could drive to the basket but also pull up and hit jump shots. He scored a season-high 45 points against rival Auburndale and also had 42 in a big district game against Lakeland. One-on-one, he was nearly impossible to stop. For the season, he averaged 22.5 points and 8.2 rebounds. In the four postseason games, he averaged 23.3 points and 8.0 rebounds.

“Keyshawn made an expected smooth transition back to our team after returning from Huntington Prep. This was obviously not a surprise because of his close lifelong relationships with his teammates. … Keyshawn allowed our coaching staff to coach him hard and push him to seek a higher goal of being a complete player.” — Winter Haven coach Tyrone Woodside
