consider him the rarest of the rare. if he were an animal, he'd definitely be an endangered species. North Texas sophomore Kenny Buyers is a White cornerback. and get this. he is now the starter for the Mean Green at field corner (the position always covers the wide side of the field as the coaching staff feels this player is their best coverage db by a significant margin) and covers the slot in man-to-man when they go nickel. Buyers was given the starting nod this week against Ball State after making several big plays in their first two games of the season, especially a huge interception against Ohio last week. here's a brief recap of the coaching staff's reasoning: (JC's note: the receiver that repeatedly burned Whitfield was the White Ohio speedster Chase Cochran.) Buyers followed up the starting nod by playing an outstanding game against Ball State. he was all over the field, in coverage, run support, and helping cover up for his teammates, finishing the contest with a career-high 9 tackles (7 solo), a fumble recovery, and several teeth-rattling hits. it should perhaps go without saying that Buyers (5-11, 177-pounds, 4.4 speed) is a former walk-on. he will get a big test this Saturday when UNT heads down to Georgia. best of luck to one of the VERY few White corners in the Bowl Subdivision.
