Video: ESPN Releases Excellent Feature On Georgia's Nick Chubb and Historic "Chubbtown"

There's a town in Georgia called "Chubbtown." 

No, it's not named after the Bulldogs' star running back. It is named after his family, though. 

Chubbtown, a free black colony that survived the Civil War, was settled by the original eight Chubb brothers in the mid-1800s. 

This morning, ESPN released a feature on the historic town and its affect on Georgia's star running back, who's attempting to get back on the field after a significant knee injury ended his 2015 season. 

It's worth a watch.
