Haney Is One To Watch
T.J. Haney (6'6/315) is not your ordinary 2015 prospect. Haney already looks like he should be playing on Saturdays. However, Haney still has three full seasons of high school football left to play. College programs have already started to pursue Haney. "I just recently got letters from Miami, Duke, and North Carolina," said Haney. "I have also heard from Pittsburgh and South Carolina." Haney has already been to one college camp this summer and will likely head to a few more. "I went to Wake Forest about a week ago," he said. "It was fun and I really liked the camp. I enjoyed the drills. The coaches thought I did very well, especially in the one-on-ones. I am very interested in Wake Forest. Next, I am thinking about going to camps at Florida State and South Carolina in July." The rising sophomore knows his strengths, but is also working to improve in certain areas. "I have a very strong upper body," he said. "I am very pass protector and I can also run block. In the offseason, I have been working on improving my footwork and my run blocking." Haney has always been a fan of one school. "Florida State is my dream school, it has been my dream school for as long as I can remember" he said. "I like everything about them, from the coaches, to the players, to the facilities. I have never been down there, but I hope I can get down there in July." Haney has high goals for his sophomore season at Gaffney. "My goal is to win a state championship, because we failed last season. We had an undefeated regular season, but lost the in state championship game against Burns. That is my main goal." he said. Haney has a strong work ethic. He works out four days a week at his high school. Then the other three days of the week, he works out at the YMCA. He bench presses 285 pounds, squats 410, and runs the 40-yard dash in 5.6 seconds.
