Justice for Buford.
No, the Wolves weren’t wronged. They received a major addition as they prepare for their first season in Class 7A.
Justice Haynes, a top 50 prospect nationally and the No. 3 running back in the Class of 2023, announced that he plans to transfer to perennial powerhouse Buford for his senior year.
Haynes played three years at Blessed Trinity, where he amassed nearly 6,000 rushing yards and 72 touchdowns.
“BT will always have a special place in my heart,” Haynes wrote in an Instagram post revealing the move. “With that being said I will be attending Buford High School next year.”
This past season was Haynes’ best yet, as he ran for 2,375 yards and 29 touchdowns during Blessed Trinity’s run to the 5A state semifinals.
