Devon Currie, the 2005-06 team captain of the South Forsyth War Eagle football team inspired many of us not only with his performance on the football field, but his courage and approach to life off the field.
For those who had the privilege to watch Devon play, he represented that rare type of player who brought the anticipation of a special moment to each play on the field. After being diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, Devon approached his illness as those who knew him expected. With the heart of a lion, he took the challenge head on and battled every step of the way.
In recognition of Devon’s contributions as a student-athlete and to the community, South Forsyth Football hereby officially retires the number 45 jersey of Devon Currie
