A young girl and the UGA Bulldogs

It was an undeniable blessing when I, a college kid and part-time sports writer, was given the assignment to cover a University of Georgia football game. What I didn’t know at the time is that that one assignment would provide a springboard to bigger opportunities as well as giving me friendships that remain many years later. Back in those days of the 1980s, Georgia had recently won a national championship under legendary coach Vince Dooley as well as produced a Heisman winner in Hershel Walker.
