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.

After weeks of anticipation, the O4W Challenge happens this Saturday!

The scavenger hunt is full of fun facts, history, and local lore about the Old Fourth Ward!  

Here's the deal….each team will get a list of Challenge Check Point clues, a map, a t-shirt and a goodie bag to take with them on their hunt.  The teams will have to take a picture of an undisclosed item/action/fun fact at each Check Point clue, and then show the judges their pictures at the finish line! 

Now, about the finish line…Whichever team solves the most Check Point clues wins $200!  The second place team wins $100 and the third place team wins $50!  But that's not the end of the prizes…there will also be a drawing so that everyone has a chance to win more cool O4W prizes!  

While the judges are busy looking through pictures and tallying up the scores, the rest of us will be enjoying live music by the O4W's own Animal and the Evolvers <
