The story of quarterback Blake Barnes ended at Georgia in late 2007 when he decided to transfer back to Delta State in his home state of Mississippi in order to get on the field for his final season.
Barnes has resurfaced in Paris, playing football in a French league. He was one of the players featured in a CBS segment on Sunday (click for story and video). He joined the team just a week ago and is still getting adjusted. “You know, still kind of hard to believe I’m in France, living in Paris,” he told CBS. His first game went rather well: a 37-8 win.
