The local hero came out of the stands last year and put on a show to remember in the Edison National Bank Slam Dunk Contest at the 2016 Culligan City of Palms Classic. The only question now is if 2018 Flo40 No. 15 Emmitt Williams will take the crown again?

The 6-foot-8 power forward will return home to Fort Myers, FL, for a final curtain call during this year's classic on December 18-23 at the Suncoast Credit Union Arena. Williams has become a regular at the premier tournament but will be playing with a new squad in Oak Ridge (FL) after transferring from IMG Academy (FL).

Whether Williams competes in the dunk contest again is unknown, but there is a chance to have some insane competition with prospects such as social media sensation and 2018 Flo40 No. 2 Zion Williamson possibly in the mix. Mark your calendars for December 20 right now because one of the best players to come out of the area may be in store for another special night.
