Newnan, Marietta mayors put ‘eats’ on the line

Mayors Keith Brady of Newnan and Steve “Thunder” Tumlin of Marietta.


When Newnan High hosts Marietta on Friday at Drake Stadium, it’ll be more than a “Battle of the Court Squares.” 

Mayors Keith Brady of Newnan and Steve “Thunder” Tumlin of Marietta agreed to a small wager that centers around each of the city’s well-known restaurants. Brady agreed to treat Tumlin to a meal at Sprayberry’s Barbecue while Tumlin has offered to take Brady to either the Big Chicken or the Marietta Diner. 

The Cougars are looking to build off last week’s season opening victory at Carrollton, while the 0-2 Blue Devils are searching for their first win of the 2014 season. Newnan leads the series with a 6-5 advantage. 

Marietta won last year’s meeting at Drake Stadium, 52-21.
