    BUFORD – Only four games into the young 2016 football season and the Buford High School Yellow Jackets are facing a recurring theme, to the tune of turnovers.

    This week, a similar kick – a game-winning field goal with 12 seconds left – had an agony of defeat sting in a 24-21 road loss to Class AAA foe Chester High School.
