Pictures, signs, and plaques are just a few of the ways Gatewood School likes to brag on their 2007 graduate, two-time Olympic Gold winner Vincent Hancock.
The school's athletic director Buster Douglas says, "Vincent was a normal student that supported his classmates and the school."
Hancock scored his first skeet shooting Olympic win in the Beijing Summer Games.
"We had kids come up and he signed autographs all day long," says Douglas.
After shooting off to London, Hancock became the first to land two golds in the event.
Douglas says, "Just getting to know Vincent and what kind of kid he was, you would want someone like him to accomplish what he has because he was a good kid. He would do anything you would ask of him."
Even with all of the international attention, Hancock still takes a piece of home with him on the road.
"Underneath the shirt that Vincent has to wear when he shoots, he wears a baseball uniform from Gatewood," says Douglas.
Hancock's father, Craig, says his son didn't get to wear the baseball shirt in London, but he will always remember where he came from.
"It's like a big family in a small town," he says.
Craig Hancock says the community support helped his son keep his eye on the prize in the finals.
"I talked to him just before he went out and he said 'Dad, this is what I do.' He just loves it. It's what he's always trained for," says Hancock's father.
After his successful trip across the pond, Folks say they're ready to welcome back their hometown hero.
Craig says his son plans to help him run a shooting range from their home in Eatonton when they come home from London. He says folks across the United States and even in Japan have already called asking for lessons from the Olympic champion.
