The current Buford coach should get this before long.

Coach Stephens at Lamar Co. is closing in on the record as well. 77-7-1 overall. He should 100 victories by next seasons end.

The current Buford coach is 109-18. So it took him 127 games to 100 victories. He had a rough start at East Paulding going 0-10 for his first season as a head coach.

If it wasn’t for these coaches recruiting the best athletes they would not have reach 100 victories so quick. Recruiting is like Pro athletes on steroids, IT’S CHEATING!!! Ask Cecil Flowe, Parkview Coach why he can’t win another state championship.

Here we go again, another recruiting cry baby. I’m personally tired of it. Tucker lost TWO returning D1 players to Stephenson. have you heard anyone complain about it ?? Get a life. Kids are going to go where they want, nothing no one can do. Get over it.

I think you need to go back to math class. 109+18 is indeed 127 but that’s not how many games it too to win 100 which is what this part of the story was about.
