Jackets line veteran set to be ‘that guy’

BHS’s Carnes ready for role

By Robert Howey

Buford High School senior center Brandon Carnes said he wants to be “that guy” this season.
“That guy” is the Jackets’ offensive line leader, following in the solid footsteps of past BHS ace linemen like Griggs Griffin, Kyle Norcia and Autry Blackmon.
Now, as Carnes sees it, his time is here.
“I’ve been on the line since the 10th grade and I have to be that person this season,” said Carnes, a three-year starter for the Jackets. “I have to keep their heads high and be a leader and role model.”
