Buford thought the 3 players they recruited for this team were enough to take them to the state finals but I guess they will have to increase the recruiting budget and get 4 players next year!

goforit…Let the excuses begin. Typical Buford fan. Just chalk it up to Dawson just played better. To top it off, they won with no seniors and 3 players under 6′ The Buford players that were being praised all week were all on the floor healthy, bucking up trying to intimidate the Tigers…IT DIDN’T WORK! WAY TO GO TIGERS!

Justafan—That was no excuess–Dawson won and they should have…Better coaching –Better fans–the Buford player (one) that was bucking up was Mr. D and the Buford people wished he had never come..only the coach..and my guess is he will not
be back next year.. wish DC the best.. I have lots of friends in Dawson CO.

Rockmartyellowbelly: Buford only let you have four fumbles and it still took OVERTIME….Buford shot themselves in the foot one to many times to win a game so contested on every jpllay….Calhoun deserved to win not as the best team (cause the best team do not always win) , but they make the fewest mistakes and did not carry the ball like a watermelon instead they wrapped their hands and arms around the ball…..Calhoun outrecruited Buford last year(player moved in from South Carolina, nephew of coach

kudos to Dawson County, and I wished they had beat Jordan, what a season to remember for their players, coaches, school, and community…..,the gym was so packed, you thought you were watching Hoosiers live…Dawson County had a team and the Buford boys looked like 5 individuals going different ways……..Coaching??????????I don’t know….but like the lady in the stands shouted when they chose to free the ball the last 3 minutes of the third quarter……shoot the _ _ _ king ball Coach………………
