A high school in Georgia is temporarily changing it's name in honor of Carl Hall.
From April 2nd through the 8th, Bleckley County High School in Cochran, Georgia is changing from the Royals to the Shockers in support of Hall, a 2007 graduate.
Superintendent of schools Dr. Charlotte Pipkin signed the proclamation this week. Here's more information from the school district's website:

This Friday, students and staff in Bleckely County are encouragerd to wear black and gold in support of Carl. He has brought recognition to Cochran, Georgia during the NCAA basketball tournament and we are proud to call him “ours”.
