Player Spotlight: Garrett Scoggins OG Buford


Class of ’17 recruit Garrett Scoggins was recently voted the winner of Week 12’s Top Play. For the winning honors, the Buford offensive lineman snuck out to the left of the defense for a screen pass and scored with relative ease. The entertainment did not stop there; Scoggins and the rest of his offensive line meandered back to the corner of the end zone and performed a light-hearted touchdown celebration.

Garrett ScogginsWhen asked about the celebration and if any practice took place beforehand, Scoggins replied, “My o-line decided that we were going to do it, but we did not practice it, we decided to wing it.”

On a more serious football note, the 2017 offensive lineman also spoke about how his senior year has gone thus far. “The season has gone great, we are playing good as a unit and really starting to click. Also it being my senior year I am just taking it all in and enjoying it.”

The tough senior’s recruitment has been steadily progressing and he has visited several colleges this fall. “I have visited Gardner-Webb, Newberry, Catawba, Furman, and East Tennessee State.” Scoggins plans to visit more colleges in the near future, but he is not sure which ones just yet.

Buford has a rich tradition of dominating offensive line play that has sent players to major Power 5 football programs. The 6’1″, 260-pound offensive guard spoke about playing at the same level as greats before him.

“I model my game after the past Buford football players, because they have left a legacy, and I want to play just like all the other great Buford teams.”

Buford is now in the second round of the playoffs and will match up against Jones County’s speedy defense. Scoggins and his teammates will rely on their brute strength between the tackles to knock Jones County’s athletic line off the ball.
