“His special ingredient is love.”

You gotta love a football player who’s also an accomplished grill master.

That top-secret recipe helped Barnes, a 3-star offensive lineman from Lee County High School (Leesburg, Ga.), win $500 in the second annual Modern Gas Ribs Showdown, which was held in Leesburg, last year. Barnes’ “Big Daddy’s” ribs won first place in a 2014 competition that had approximately 30 other grill masters. He purchased a deer rifle with the prize money.

That’s right. Barnes, a 6-foot-5, 270-pounder who will play for the Bulldogs next year, is an award-winning chef.

Hope that’s not considered an NCAA violation.
