Headline Surfer Hall of Fame: NBA star Vince Carter of Daytona Beach, Vinsanity on the basketball court & all-around good guy

are a couple of quotes from Dr. Michelle Carter-Scott:

 

“Vincent often speaks of his fond memories of growing up in the Daytona Beach area.  The schools and communities of South Daytona, Daytona Beach, and Ormond Beach have been pivotal in his upbringing. 

 

Even as a youngster, Vincent had a penchant of wanting to help others.”

 

Here are a couple of quotes from my son, Vince Carter.  Thank you for reaching out to him and honoring him as an inaugural HeadlineSurfer.com Hall of Fame recipient.  

 

“My 20 years in the NBA are a result of hard work, good decisions, and a bit of luck.”

 

“I was born in Daytona Beach, and went to schools in the area.  This is my hometown.  Whenever I can put a smile on a person's face, especially children, it's all good.”
