Buggs plays running back and corner for Goodpasture's 8-1 region championship team. He has rushed for 792 yards and 15 touchdowns on only 72 carries. "That's one of the good things going into the playoffs," added Coach Martin. "We're pretty fresh right now. Marcus hasn't had to carry the ball too many times, but look what he gets done when he does carry it. He had offers from Vanderbilt and Wake Forest, and Ole Miss, Louisville, and Memphis had told me that they were planning on offering him."
Buggs is solid to Vanderbilt, and his visit to Nashville on 11-2 will likely be the only official he takes. He is an excellent overall athlete that will likely get a first shot at running back, but could play in the defensive secondary as well.
