Curran Nets Another Honor

Courtesy UGA Athletics...

University of Georgia junior linebacker Rennie Curran will be honored as the Collegiate Athlete of the Year at the AAG Foundation gala in Atlanta on Saturday night.

Curran joins Alonzo Mourning (Athlete of the Year), Hank and Billye Aaron (Lifetime Achievement) and Tessah Holt (High School Athlete of the Year) as the other recipients on Saturday night. The black tie charity gala is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at The Westin Buckhead.

AAG Foundation has a slogan of “unifying athletes for the betterment of our communities.” Curran will be honored at the event for his service and dedication to the community as well as for his athletic success. Proceeds from the charity will benefit AAG Foundation’s Digital Connector & Reads Programs, as well as a donation to Grady Hospital.

A finalist for the Butkus Award, Curran was named to the 2008 All-Southeastern Conference team after recording a team-high 115 tackles, including an SEC-high 63 solo stops. Curran also tied for the team lead with three sacks and forced two fumbles for the 10-3 Bulldogs last season.
