Hawthorne QB shines in Jamboree

Cornelius Ingram, one of Florida top two-sport stars, continues to impress. Last Saturday night, the Hawthorne quarterback led his team to a 33-21 victory over Keystone Heights in its spring jamboree. Click here to read about the game and find out what's up next for the 6-foot-4, 205-pound star.

"Cornelius had a real good night," Hawthorne head coach James Haynes, Jr. said. "I don't have the stats in front of me but I believe he went 13 of 17 for 194 yards and one touchdown. He didn't throw an interception and he had three carries for 30 yards on the ground."

Ingram's numbers were impressive. It could have been more but one of Hawthorne's receivers dropped a potential 60-yard touchdown pass in the end zone.

This spring coaches from all over the country where coming and going, including ones from Florida, Florida State and Miami. "Coach (Ron) Zook has been here," Haynes said. "He was here going up and down the field in his wheelchair. Coach (Jody) Allen from Florida State and Coach Werner from Miami were also here. Every coach that comes here wants him."

Haynes is very excited for the new season and he thinks very high of his star quarterback.

"I'm a little biased but not only do I think he's the best quarterback in the state but also the best player," he said. "If he works real hard he has a chance of being Mr. Basketball in the state for senior year."

What's up next for Mr. Ingram?

"He going to attend the Florida State football camp this July and he hopes to be invited to the Elite 11 quarterback camp this summer," Haynes said.
