*To the high school football players in Georgia who must face Manchester High at some point next season, we’re sending our thoughts and prayers now.
Justus Terry – all 6-foot-5, 260 pounds of him – went viral this week after tweeting a photo of himself flexing and stating he’s ready to enter … the 9th grade. That’s right, all of that in the photo is just 14 years old.
“After tonights workout I’m ready to start my freshman year at Manchester High School! 9th Grade Im Coming,” Terry wrote on Twitter.

Terry, a defensive end and tight end, was recognized in December as the No. 1 athlete in middle school, and will suit up this fall for the Manchester High Blue Devils. Let the prayer circle begin for the poor souls who will line up against him.
