Buford's Simpson, South's Greene featured at TD Club banquet

Gwinnett will be represented well at Monday’s Touchdown Club of Atlanta/National Football Foundation Chapter weekly banquet, including an honor for Buford’s Jess Simpson.

Simpson was selected as the club’s coach of the week after leading the Wolves to a win over Gainesville last week. He will be honored alongside St. Pius’ Nick Ruffin (back of the week), Marist’s Kendall Baker (lineman of the week) and the team of the week, Newton.

The event’s guest speaker is South Gwinnett grad David Greene, a former Georgia and NFL quarterback.

The luncheon is at noon Monday at 103 West in Atlanta.
