  • Small looms large for Jackets

    BUFORD – Dalton Small is Buford’s little big man. Small, at 5-8, 170 pounds, isn’t the biggest player, but whatever it takes, he will come up big for the Jackets football team.
    “Dalton is a big asset to our team,” BHS coach Tripp Watts said. “He will do anything to help the team. Dalton is a true team player.”
    Small, a two-year starter for the Jackets and a four-year player, is a two-way starter.
    “The biggest thing about Dalton is he doesn’t come off the field,” Watts said.
