About the Author
Rennie Curran is an internationally acclaimed speaker, author, musician and 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. Rivals.com rated him as a four-star recruit and listed him as the No. 11 inside linebacker prospect in the nation. In 2007 he was named freshman All-American by Rivals.com. In 2008 he was labeled “The most dominant defensive player in the game” and nominated as a finalist for the Butkus Award along with many other awards. In 2009 he was nominated as a finalist for the Rotary Lombardi Award, Bednarik Award and tabbed as “SEC’s Best Hitter”. Out of all the awards and accolades, his proudest accomplishment was being named as a permanent team captain. He was selected in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, spent some time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012 and joined the Edmonton Eskimos in 2013. Curran’s widely renowned athletic career has allowed him to give back to the Liberian community, supporting educational and social institutions. At the same time, he promotes goodwill and continues to build positive relationships by working with many non-profit organizations in the Atlanta Area including the Boys and Girls Club, MAP international and the CETA Foundation. Curran has also found success in other fields. He is a musician who grew up playing the piano, drums, and viola. He regularly travels as a motivational speaker, talking to many different organizations inspiring individuals to live life to the fullest. Curran is both an athletic powerhouse and a determined individual whose prosperity continues to invigorate countless audiences. His drive both on and off the field is a testament to his continuous passion for life. When he's not playing or practicing, Curran spends lots of time with his family, especially his daughter Eleana, passing on his wisdom and love to her. Curran is a man of humility, integrity and resilience. He truly is "The Liberian Dream."
