Former Georgia linebacker to challenge The Freeze at Atlanta Braves game
Former Georgia linebacker Rennie Curran will challenge The Freeze to a race at the Atlanta Braves-New York Mets game on Saturday.
The Braves and Mets are currently locked in a race for the NL East title, but that will not be the only race at the game. The Freeze is known to challenge fans to races on the warning track at games. Usually, he gives the fans a considerable head start and he flags them down before the finish line.

This matchup should be much more competitive for The Freeze. The race will happen because The Freeze called out Curran for a race on Saturday. Curran willingly accepted the challenge.
The Freeze will be facing a former standout Georgia linebacker, who played in the NFL and CFL for several seasons. At Georgia, Curran had 6.5 sacks and 298 total tackles in 3 seasons. As a professional, he played for the Tennessee Titans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 3 seasons. He also played in the CFL for 3 seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos and BC Lions.

Curran has a legitimate athletic background and should be a formidable opponent for The Freeze. It will be interesting to see if The Freeze offers a head start to Curran or if they start at the same time in the outfield.
The Freeze, whose real name is Nigel Talton, ran track in college and has been doing this race for several years at Braves games. He is a member of the grounds crew at Truist Park and knows the lay out of the field.
