The Impressive NFL Career of Todd Gurley


The recipient of a bachelor's degree in risk management and insurance from the University of Georgia, Scott G. Sink is an experienced insurance professional who has served as the senior executive vice president of insurance company McGriff, Seibels & Williams since 1994. Although he now resides in Birmingham, Alabama, Scott G. Sink remains a passionate fan of his alma mater's football team. 

Dozens of University of Georgia alumni are in the National Football League (NFL), but few have been as impactful as Todd Gurley. A 24-year-old native of Baltimore, Maryland, Gurley registered 3,285 rushing yards, 615 receiving yards, and 42 touchdowns over the course of 30 games with the Bulldogs from 2012 to 2014. He was selected 10th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. 

Gurley was named the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 after he registered 1,106 rushing yards and 188 receiving yards to go along with 10 touchdowns. He had an off year in 2016 but has been one of the league's best running backs in the two seasons since. 

Gurley led the league in rushing touchdowns with 13 in 2017, when he won the AP Offensive Player of the Year. He has already matched that number through the first 11 games of the 2018 season. He also led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage (2,093) in 2017 and is leading in that category once again this season with 1,484 combined rushing and receiving yards.

Georgia Bulldogs Sophomore QB Jake Fromm Excelling in 2018




With more than 30 years of relevant experience, insurance professional Scott G. Sink serves as the senior executive vice president for the Birmingham, Alabama-based insurance company McGriff, Seibels & Williams. Scott G. Sink earned a bachelor's degree in risk management and insurance from the University of Georgia. He remains a passionate fan of the university's football team.

Through the first 12 weeks of the 2018 season, the University of Georgia Bulldogs boasted a win-loss record of 11-1, thanks in part to the performance of sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm. Building upon a freshman year in which he had 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions, Fromm has improved in nearly every statistical category. 

Fromm has a passing percentage of 69.1 and has already matched his touchdown total from last year. Moreover, he has an improved quarterback rating of 179.4, and with three games remaining, he is within 400 yards of outperforming his total passing yards from last season.

The 20-year-old helped Georgia win the SEC Championship last season and guided his team all the way to the College Football Playoff Championship Game. His mental fortitude was tested earlier this season in a lackluster performance in a 36-16 loss to LSU, but Fromm has since guided his team to victories over Auburn and Kentucky, among other high-profile teams.

Tips for a Better Travel Experience in Rome


The recipient of a bachelor's degree in risk management and insurance from the University of Georgia, Scott G. Sink has served as senior executive vice president of Birmingham, Alabama's McGriff, Seibels & Williams since 1994. When he isn't working, Scott G. Sink enjoys traveling with his family and counts Rome, Italy, as one of his favorite destinations.

Rome wasn't built in a day, and you certainly can't see all the sights you might want to in a single day, either. That's why it's important to prioritize what you want to see and do while you're there, especially if your stay will only be a week-long or shorter. One of the more prominent tourist attractions in the city is the Colosseum, but it can take hours waiting in line just to see the ruins of its lower levels. Instead, you can ignore the crowds and still look upon it in awe from a distance while saving your time for other experiences.

If you are set on doing tours of well-known landmarks such as the Pantheon or the Vatican, visit late in the afternoon or first thing in the morning. Similarly, the Trevi Fountain is almost always crowded, but it will be less busy later in the evening. The Sistine Chapel is best viewed just before closing, as at this time the artificial lighting is shut off and the paintings on its ceiling can be viewed in natural light as originally intended. Other lesser known attractions and areas worth visiting include the Testaccio neighborhood, the Vatican gardens, Santa Maria della Vittoria, and the catacombs near Villa Ada.

Old Overton Club - Renowned Alabama Golf Venue


Scott G. Sink brings more than three decades of experience in the insurance industry to his role as senior executive vice president at McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc., in Birmingham, Alabama. When not busy leading the insurance brokerage firm’s 60-person Energy and Marine Division, Scott G. Sink is an avid golfer who has played all over the world, and at local venues such as Old Overton Club.

Old Overton Club sits southeast of Birmingham in the heavily wooded hills of Vestavia Hills, Alabama. Built on the site of a former strip mine, the picturesque course is the product of a collaboration between Jerry Pate and Tom Fazio, who together incorporated several aspects of the local topography in their design. A rock wall comes into play on the 426-yard fourth hole, while Lake Overton presents a challenge to golfers on several of the back nine holes.

Since opening in 1993, Old Overton has garnered acclaim from publications like Golf Digest, which recognized the club as having the eighth-best course in Alabama for 2017-18. Outside of golf, Old Overton offers activities such as swimming, tennis, and dining.
