Carlos ’Boogie’ Basham Jr., the former Northside Viking standout will soon be playing football on Sundays.
On Friday night, the Buffalo Bills selected the Roanoke native and defensive end with the 61st pick in the NFL Draft.
Coming into the draft, many believed Basham had a chance of being taken in the first round, but he was picked in the second round.

The 6-foot-3 defensive end played at Wake Forest.
Fun fact. Back in 2015, Basham announced his decision to play at Wake Forest live on WSLS 10!
