He says, quote, “I’m from Jefferson, Georgia.  [My] wife graduated from Commerce High School, which is across the river.  [It] was the most hated rivalry for high school football in the state of Georgia.  You weren’t supposed to date across the river.

“So, we had like a little Romeo and Juliet thing goin’ on.  To the extent that, we live in Maysville, which is like neutral territory.  It’s right in between the two.”
