Recommended Posts

Mill Creek at Buford
When, where: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Tom Riden Stadium, Buford
Records, rankings: Mill Creek is 6-0 overall, 1-0 in Region 8-7A and No. 3; Buford is 6-0, 1-0 and No. 1.
Last meeting: This is the teams’ first meeting.
Things to know: Both are ranked in the top 25 of seven national polls, with Buford peaking at No. 2 (High School Football America) and Mill Creek at No. 9 (Massey Ratings and CalPreps). These teams’ school districts bordered each other in Gwinnett County until this year, when newly opened Seckinger provided a buffer. When Mill Creek opened in 2004, Buford was a Class 2A school, and it’s only now that they’ve been in the same classification. These teams arguably have the leading player-of-the-year candidates in Class 7A if not the state. Buford’s Justice Haynes has rushed for 870 yards on 100 carries and scored 15 touchdowns, one on a kickoff return. Mill Creek’s Caleb Downs has 525 all-purpose yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions (17 for his career). Both are AJC Super 11 picks committed to Alabama. Mill Creek leads Class 7A in scoring at 46.5 points per game. Buford is second in fewest points allowed at 7.8 per game. For all practical purposes, this is for the region title. The only other team without a region loss, Mountain View, lost to Mill Creek 56-0 last season.
