Northside's Nelson Signs with OSU

Just in time for Christmas, one Central Georgia student athlete received the gift of continued education, while continuing to play the sport he loves.

2011 Northside graduate and football standout Steven Nelson signed a letter of intent to play football at Oregon State in Corvallis.

Two years ago the defensive back settled in at College of the Sequoias, a junior college in California. Because of his hard work on the field and in the classroom, several D1 programs came a calling including USC, Oregon, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Baylor, Texas Tech, Kansas, Houston, Fresno State, Washington State, Mizzou and Georgia. Although Nelson says he is glad to be home in the Peach State to visit for Christmas, the Northwest is a better fit for him.

Nelson is listed in the ESPN top 100 Junior College transfers at No. 19 and the top cornerback of that bunch.

WR Man Plans Motorcycle Ride to Newtown

The tragic shootings in Newtown, Connecticut have touched hearts across America and moved some people to action.

One man in Warner Robins plans to show his support by hitting the road.

Doug Smith shared his travel plans with 13WMAZ's Jennifer Moulliet.

"When I called social services,  the lady said you're from where, and you're riding what here?" explains Smith. 

That's right, Smith, a father of three,  plans to ride his Harley to Newtown. "We're probably looking at anywhere from seventeen to twenty-two hours." says Smith

He's says it's all to honor the twenty six people who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and he wants their families to know Central Georgians are grieving with them.

"That's why you ride, in support of something," says Smith.
