Tre Mason used Park Vista as a platform to show his skills on the football field, but his brother Chauncey Mason has decided to take a different route than the Heisman finalist.
The 2015 running back has opted to transfer out of Park Vista, enrolling at Boynton Beach. Chauncey’s first day at Boynton Beach was on Tuesday. Park Vista athletic director Pam Romero confirmed the news Wednesday morning.
“I feel as if I’m at a program where I can show my talent and be a major asset to the team,” Chauncey said of Boynton Beach in a text message.
According to Chauncey, his family moved into Boynton Beach High School’s zone, which extends from just south of Woolbright Road to Miner Road in Boynton Beach.
As a junior, Chauncey ran for over 200 yards while playing running back and wide receiver for the Cobras. Next season, he will join a loaded Boynton Beach team that features star quarterback Lamar Jackson and wide receiver Donte Sylencieux, who both have offers from multiple BCS programs.
The Tigers finished with a 9-2 record last season, falling to eventual Class 6A state champion, Miami Central, in the regional quarterfinals.
Chauncey is still waiting for his first offer, but Miami, FAU, Iowa State, West Virginia and Auburn are among the schools that have already shown interest in the 5-foot-10, 180-pound running back.
