2011 NOTY: Sithole Regional, Part 1

Sorry. We should have told you that we were going on spring break. With children. Many children. Only one of them ours.

Let's get right back to it, shall we?

We made Atticus Disney the top seed in the Sithole Regional for a reason: We liked his both-ways style. The righteous austerity of the Christian name combined with the Mickey and Goofy joviality of the surname. We figured our No. 1 was named for the legal hero Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird, and we were correct. Atticus, a heavyweight wrestler at California Polytechnic State University, or Cal Poly, told the campus paper, the Mustang Daily, that his parents were going to name him either Atticus or Ken:

“No one likes to have the weird name when you’re little, because everyone makes fun of you,” Disney said. “But when you start getting older I think people remember you easier. I mean in class, you don’t really forget the name Atticus. I love it now.”

We do too. Two votes below.

No. 1 Atticus Disney: Cal Poly heavyweight wrestler.
No. 16 Tally Hair: NASCAR media executive.

No. 8 Chuntania Dangerfield: Houston county employee.

No. 9 Crusoe Gongbay: Incoming New Mexico running back.
