The NYO Football Committee is pleased to announce that former UGA All-American, Rennie Curran will be our guest speaker at the NYO Football Kickoff event on Sunday, September 10 at 5:00 pm. This is always a great night at the park. All NYO families are invited to attend. A little bit about Rennie:
Rennie Curran is an internationally acclaimed speaker, author, musician and an American football linebacker. He began his career at Brookwood High School in Snellville, GA becoming the all-time leading tackler in Gwinnett County. He went on to excel as a three-time All- American at the University of Georgia. He was initially considered to be undersized according to various critics, but quickly silenced the doubts by exploding onto the field as a true freshman.
Currently as an internationally acclaimed speaker, Rennie uses his platform to inspire audiences to overcome obstacles, stay ahead of the competition, and reach their fullest potential. His experiences of overcoming many circumstances to reach his dream of
becoming 3-time All American at The University of Georgia, a 3rd round draft pick in the NFL Draft, and transitioning into starting his own business gives him a unique perspective on what it takes to handle adversity and maximize opportunities while having a positive impact on others. Through his innovative presentations he teaches organizations how to transform their lives and their business through overcoming adversity, personal branding, and leadership.
Rennie has been counseling and inspiring people for many years. In 2013 he published a motivational self-help book entitled ‘Free Agent – Intangible Assets for Overcoming Adversity and Times of Transition. This motivational self-help book discusses how to overcome adversity and times of transition that we all face along our journey to achieve our dreams. Rennie recently released his first children’s book along with his daughter, Eleana Curran, titled “What Does It Take to Be A Star?” This book teaches about work ethic, self-control, respectfulness, perseverance, citizenship, and many of the character values needed for a child to achieve their dreams!
He has been featured on USA Today, Fox Sports, ESPN College GameDay and The Huffington Post. When Rennie is not speaking, coaching or writing he is usually catching up on one of his favorite hobbies: music. He grew up playing the piano, drums, and viola. He is also a public servant who spends lots of time giving back through several organizations including: Boys and Girls Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, ALS Foundation, Boys Scouts of America, and many more! Curran is a man of faith, humility, integrity, and resilience.
