Two players from the Harrison Central basketball team are heading to the next level together.
This morning, Mikel King and Cameran Haynes signed their national letters of intent with Central Baptist College, an NAIA school in Conway, Arkansas.
Fresh off a run to the class 6A semi-finals, both King and Haynes bring a winning pedigree to the Mustangs program.
An emotional day for the teammates twice over, ready to move more than seven hours away as a package deal. King said, “It’s just me and him have just been through a lot together, we’re like blood brothers. But that’s my friend, but we’ve come so far. It’s so easy to play on the court. He already knows what I want him to do, so it’s just easy for me to play with him.”
Haynes said, “It kind of made me feel emotional, too. That’s my brother. He’s expressing his feelings about our bond, so that kind of touched me. What we did at HC, carry on to CBC.”
The Red Rebels finished with an overall record of 26-5 last season.
