Plant City's Treshaun Ward transfers to Tampa Bay Tech



With preseason games less than two weeks away, Treshaun Ward was in his own personal limbo.

The former Plant City running back was scrambling to find a place to play. He wanted to attend Armwood since the spring, but his mother said the Hillsborough County school district denied a hardship waiver to go there.

On Tuesday, Ward found a home. He announced via Twitter that he is transferring to Tampa Bay Tech.

“This year I learned that throughout life when you’re doing well there will be haters and will do anything in their power for you to become unsuccessful or block wherever you are trying to go,” Ward said in his Twitter post.

Ward, who has offers from East Carolina and USF, among others, said he will start with the Titans on Wednesday.

His arrival gives Tampa Bay Tech another dynamic weapon in an already loaded offense. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr., a Tennessee commit, returns. So does receiver Levi Jackson, who has an offer from Mercer.

Last season, Ward, ranked 22nd on the HomeTeam 100 list, rushed for 1,082 yards and 13 touchdowns.

So will Ward try to go to Armwood after this season?

“Nah, I’m staying at Tech,” he said.
