Roswell/Alpharetta/Marrietta, GA

Football: Jermaine Phillips

Baseball: Todd Jones/Jeremy Hermida

basketball: Shareef Abdur-Rahim

other: The Armstrong family of wrestlers...

as far as baseball goes...Marietta is home to East Cobb Baseball...MANY MLB players have played there I belive including Hermida. Marietta seems to be a baseball/basketball/and football hotbed for some reason.

Football: tie between Dan Marino and Tony Dorsett (although Marino gets the edge for actually BEING from the City)

Baseball: Honus Wagner

Hockey: Ryan Malone (because I can't think of anyone else)

Basketball: Pete Maravich

Coaching: Bill Cowher

Wrestling: Kurt Angle (Bruno Sammartino was born in Italy and could thus not be included)

Track: John Woodruff (Jesse Owens's teammate at the 1936 Olympics)
