Locust Grove High wins sportsmanship award

Locust Grove High wins sportsmanship award

LOCUST GROVE, Ga. -- Locust Grove High School is one of only 40 schools in Georgia to receive the Georgia High School Association Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award.

This honor recognizes schools that exhibit exceptional sportsmanship during athletic events.

"Media reports across our nation show us that people do not always interact with each other in a civil manner," said Rodney Christopher with Central Georgia EMC, which sponsors the award. "The Cooperative Sportsmanship Award reinforces the GHSA policy: students, athletes, coaches, spectators and all others associated with high school activities programs should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility."

Locust Grove High received the award at halftime during the Sept.

LOCAL PROFILE: NFL Linebacker Rennie Curran

LILBURN -- Former Brookwood High School football standout, Rennie Curran is patiently waiting for a new jersey. Over the past two years, Curran went from the University of Georgia to LP Field in Nashville and now he's back at home.

 Curran was released shortly after this year's NFL pre-season, despite leading the team in tackles during the pre-season. 

Since being cut, Curran has been training at Catalyst and other gyms to ensure that when he does get a call, he wont miss a step. Curran is pretty confident he'll be wearing someone's jersey soon.
