Said Braswell:”Poor kids from Northwest Georgia shouldn’t have these kinds of opportunities. This stuff doesn’t come often. To have the opportunity to go in the ACC. Get to do the things that I get to do. Getting to see Clemson in the fall. Getting to go and play Notre Dame. I mean two out of the four teams in the college football playoffs are on our schedule next year. That’s stuff exciting. The only think I know is I don’t have to take attendance anymore. I don’t have to put grades in the grade book. I don’t have bus duty. I’m really, really excited about those things, and I guess I’ll find out what my responsibilities are kind of as they go along.”
