BUFORD HEAD COACH JESS SIMPSON  "Paris is a great kid who makes your locker room a better place for the entire team. He's a true team player willing to put it all on the line. Paris is an excellent student, is extremely coachable and has great character.

"He is physical, explosive and has great ball skills, and lays the wood when it is needed. Paris makes plays when the team really needs it, like his touchdown catch over a Calhoun player in closing minutes of this past state championship that propelled us to overtime."
