Overview
Everyone knows about Herschel Walker, but what about George Woodruff, who, in a fogbound game against Sewanee, passed his helmet into their secondary and then handed the ball off to Hafford Hay, who ran untouched into the endzone? Athens is famed for its postgame victory parties, but who can recall the mountainous bonfire in 1910 that, when ignited, blew out every windowpane in three nearby campus buildings? Herty Field, the University of Georgia's first gridiron, is now a parking lot, but the glory lives on in this classic, fast-paced chronicle of Bulldogs football from its beginnings in 1891 to 1916.
