Things to know: Buford and North Cobb have played the past two seasons, each winning once. North Cobb QB Malachi Singleton, now a senior committed to Arkansas, was outstanding in both. He was 13-of-15 passing for 137 yards in a 28-14 victory in 2020. He then passed for 218 yards and three touchdowns in 2021, but Buford rallied from a 14-0 deficit to win, punting on its first five possessions but scoring on its next five. In North Cobb’s opener this year, a 21-17 victory over Westlake, Singleton rushed for 110 yards and was 13-of-25 passing for 92 yards. North Cobb has two outstanding running backs – David Mbadinga, whose 38-yard TD run was the game-winner against Westlake, and Ben Hall, who had 94 yards rushing and is committed to Michigan. Buford has blown out Thompson of Alabama and Mallard Creek of North Carolina, two highly regarded teams from their states. Justice Haynes, who is committed to Alabama, has 217 yards from scrimmage and a kickoff-return touchdown. Quarterbacks Dylan Wittke and Tristan Gabrels are 23-of-31 passing for 356 yards. Buford has three top-100 national junior prospects (DB K.J. Bolden, DL KingJoseph Edwards and DL Eddrick Houston) starting on defense.
