 Milligan College, Tenn. (May 14, 2008) --- David Crockett High School senior Justin Haston (Jonesborough, Tenn.) announced this week he will compete for the Buffaloes of Milligan College starting next Fall.

A multiple all-conference and All-State jumper and sprinter, Haston owns a personal best of 41-11.5, and also competes in the long jump.

"Justin is an all-around athlete and he has just scraped the surface of what he can do in the jumps," said head coach Chris Layne. He also owns a 200 meter best of 22.9 seconds.

The son of William and Lori Haston, he plans to major in nursing and was a member of Crockett's honor roll for three years as well as the National Honor Society. Haston attends Bethel Christian Church and is also a member of his school's chorus.

Joining Haston at Milligan next Fall is Pulaski County senior Matt Wright (Pulaski, Va.). Wright competes in the 400 meters and 800 meters and was an all-district and all-region selection for Coach Jamie McCarty. 

Wright, the son of Kristi Wright, is a member of the National Honor Society and plans to major in mathematics at Milligan. "Matt comes from a strong high school program, and we're excited about what he brings to this team both academically and athletically," said Layne.
