Welcome to Athens Power Rankings. In the spirit of sports rating systems, through painstaking analysis, we rank the top movers and shakers in the Classic City each week. Who’s hot? Who’s not? Find out below.
1A. Nathan Deal
1B. David Perdue
“Oh, Athens. Your thousands of Democratic votes mean nothing to us. It’s cute, really, the way you keep thinking things might actually be different this time.”
3. Bob Sleppy
Nuçi’s Space, the nonprofit where Sleppy is executive director, has started a fundraising campaign to preserve the St. Mary’s steeple, a landmark in local music lore.
4. Isaiah McKenzie
Hutson Mason threw four touchdowns and Nick Chubb ran for 170 yards, but the real revelation in Georgia’s 63–31 win over Kentucky was another freshman running back, Isaiah McKenzie, who showed why he’s nicknamed “The Human Joystick” with two returns for touchdowns. TODD WHO?
This Saturday, Gurley returns, along with Keith Marshall, allowing the Dawgs to unleash the five-headed monster ChubbMiKenzLeyShall against Auburn.
5. Fenwick Broyard
Community Connection’s Taste of Athens fundraiser has a new flavor.
