It’s National Signing Day, and for 14 Buford High School seniors, it’s their day to cherish with family and friends. “2016 was an awesome year for the Buford High School Football Team,” Buford Assistant Coach Fyrone Davis said. “We were able to have 14 signees who were great student-athletes with a great future ahead of them.”
It’s the day every high school football player dreams of, the day on which he signs his name on the dotted line, choosing which university he will play football at for the next four years.
