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.

MIDTOWN: Dream delayed for Tech football player

MIDTOWN: Dream delayed for Tech football player

ATLANTA -- For more than a year, Georgia Tech Defensive Lineman Denzel McCoy has been waiting for the chance to take the field with the Yellow Jackets. Now it seems that chance may never happen.

A highly recruited prep standout from Northview High School, Denzel McCoy was held out of practices last year when a heart ailment was detected during a physical examination. Cardiomyopathy, is the disease that is robbing McCoy of living his dream of playing college football.

Denzel is looking ahead and aiming at earning his degree, while finding other ways to support the Georgia Tech program. Denzel knows the chances are slim, but still clings to a hope that somehow he will get to play just once. If he does, Denzel McCoy says he wants all of the doctors along with family and friends to join him in running behind the Rambling Wreck.
