After years of extraordinary success as a Tattnall Trojan, Ahmad Barron will continue his football career in North Georgia as a Reinhardt University Eagle. Barron signed his letter of intent in front of a crowd of classmates, friends, family, and teachers. Throughout his athletic career at Tattnall, Barron proved to be an invaluable member of each team he joined. During his senior football season alone, Barron had 160 carries with 1600 yards and 17 touchdowns.
“We’ll miss your abilities on the field, but we’ll miss your heart and your character more,” stated Coach Chance Jones as he addressed Barron this afternoon. Over the years, Barron has won the hearts of the Tattnall family with his kindness, impeccable character, and heart of gold.
