Tell me you can watch this without getting a little lump in your throat. (And not just because of the injury.)
That is one grounded young man… and community.

Thanks for posting that Senator. I had missed it on ESPN. That is a great piece and makes me root even harder, if that is possible, for Nick. Great kid.
Pardon the levity, but right down the road is Booger Hollow.
Back when I lived in the area the locals pronounced it “Booger Holler.” Do they still?
Yes, they do. I just moved back to C-Town after almost 30 years away.
I live right there too in Silver Creek. They sure do.
Just love to have a son like him.
Amen. Watched it twice, then shared with my son. Football or not, with Nick’s belief in hard work, you know he’ll be ok.
Morning Glory! That gets Monday started right!
I watched it yesterday. The segment made me proud of him and of his family and glad he’s a Bulldog. Whether or not he plays another down between the hedges, NC27 is a DGD. I really hope we see him in the Dome against that Swiss cheese UNC run defense.
By the way, if the AD had anything to do with getting this segment done, good for him … Maybe he’s learning some PR.
Thanks for the chuckle this morning.
I doubt it … I would be surprised if the Sports Information Department even pitched it to ESPN.
Byron Pitts handled the report and he hosts Nightline, has been a correspondent for 60 Minutes and won a bunch of awards for news reporting. Also, he wrote a book about main point of the Chubbtown story – faith, family, and success – a few years ago. Given that he has had ties to Atlanta, I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t already aware of Chubbtown while researching his book or other Black History Month stories long ago.
I would agree but would also hope that Claude Felton, in particular, got involved.
Yep, crying a little at work on a Monday. Not what I had planned. Damn Good Dawg, damn fine family.
Fuck Neyland stadium. For real.
We have enough guys get hurt on that field to file a class action lawsuit against UT.
&uck Kneeland Stadium. For real.
There….I fixed it for you.
As much as this made me feel all warm and fuzzy about Nick and his hometown and heritage, it made me seethe when I saw the injury portion of the video.
The coaching staff should show that right before kickoff against the orange grunge this year.
I hope Nick gets 9000000000000000 yards against Booch and his bandits this year in Athens.
We need more people like him and his family in today’s society.
Just a fine young man. He’ll be successful at whatever he does. I just hope that includes UGA football.
Great young man…great family with a great heritage…I remember when he came in…no fanfare, no flash, just determination, sharp elbows and a whole lot of never quit…. can’t wait to see what Chubb 2.5 looks like… more excited about the Dawgs than I have been in 10 years…
A man of character and talent. A great story.
Love the clip where his shoe came off against Clemson.
Get well soon Nick.
