6-5, 260LB Defensive End Goes Viral Because He’s About To Be A Freshman… In High School

Justus Terry 6-Foot-5 260 Pound 8th Grade Defensive End Goes Viral


Arch Manning may be the high school football player who is garnering the most attention these days (and rightfully so), but what about middle school football players?

Normally, no one but the hardest of hardcore youth football fans would know any player at that age level. However, Manchester, Georgia middle schooler Justus “Jay” Terry is anything but normal.

Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing in at 260 pounds, Justus Terry has just completed the 8th grade. No, that is not a typo. Justus Terry is a 6-foot-5, 260 pound 8th grade defensive lineman.

And with one tweet this week, the young man went viral.

“After tonights workout I’m ready to start my freshman year at Manchester High School! 9th Grade Im Coming,” Terry wrote on Twitter, sending a shiver down the spines of every kid who who has to play offense against him next season. Dude is scary.

Based on some scouting services, Teryry was the number one rated middle school football player in 2020. He will be suiting up for the Manchester High School Blue Devils this fall.

Last November, Terry was the first player selected for the South Georgia FBU All Star Team and had a visit from Rivals.com.

Needless to say, people on social media were left gobsmacked by Terry’s incredible size and athleticism for an 8th grader, who according to folks claiming to be his family on Twitter say is only 14-years-old!

Oh, it’s a guarantee that Nick Saban already has Justus Terry on his radar. You can count on that.
