Gailey, Curry, Phillips Honored by Boy Scouts

April 19, 2005

Georgia Tech head football coach Chan Gailey, football standout Nate Curry and women’s basketball player Cheytoria Phillips were honored by the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America at the annual Peach of an Athlete Banquet.

The annual event, held Tuesday at the Cobb Galleria Centre, recognizes positive role models.

Gailey received the Bobby Jones Award, presented to someone who has excelled on and off the field of play while representing the values of scouting. Tech’s fourth-year head coach attained the rank of Eagle Scout while growing up in Americus, Ga.

Curry, a senior wide receiver from Miami, Fla., and Phillips, a junior from Raleigh, N.C., were honored along with other area collegians as student-athletes who are positive role models by excelling in athletics, academics, character and service. Both are outstanding students who are involved in numerous community service and outreach projects.
