Tre Mason's high school jersey retired


Before becoming a star at the University of Auburn, running back Tre Mason was lighting up the high school gridiron at Park Vista High School in Florida. With Mason’s success at Auburn, his high school has decided to honor his time at Park Vista by retiring the No. 10 jersey that he wore in his earlier days.

The jersey was retired during halftime of a basketball game on Friday night during a 15-minute ceremony. It was a family affair for Mason, who’s younger brother plays on the Park Vista basketball team.

“It’s a blessing to be back here,” Mason said to WPEC-TV. “You never know what tomorrow presents, so it’s just a blessing to be back here and watch my brother (Chauncey Mason).”

Mason broke a number of school records during his time at Auburn, including the all-time rushing record previously held by the legendary Bo Jackson. Mason will now turn his attention to the NFL, where he will look to continue his success.
