After the great feedback that I received from my article “Georgia’s Greatest Junkyard Dawg Defense”, I started to reminence of all the great offensive players that have come through the University of Georgia.
As I started to go through the decades of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, I found all of the mean and nasty lineman that I would put on any offensive line. The 80’s, 90’s, and early 2000’s brought about the skill position players that would be able to take it to the house on any defense.
So here is Georgia’s Offense for the Ages:
Center – Tommy Lyons 1967 to 1970
Lyons was a 2-time All-American, All-SEC in 1970, and a member of the 1968 SEC Championship team.
Left Guard – Pat Dye 1957 to 1960
Dye was a 2-time All-American, 3-time All-SEC selection, and a member of the 1959 SEC Championship team.
Right Guard – Joel Parrish 1973 to 1976
Parrish was an All-American and All-SEC selection in 1976, as well as a member of the 1976 SEC Championship team.
Left Tackle – Matt Stinchcomb 1995 to 1998
M. Stinchcomb was a 2-time All-American, 2-time All-SEC selection, and a finalist for the Lombardi award in 1998.
Right Tackle – Jon Stinchcomb 1999 to 2002
J. Stinchcomb was an All-American in 2002, 3-time All-SEC selection, and a member of the 2002 SEC Championship team.
Tight End – Randy McMichael 1998 to 2001
McMichael was a 2-time All-SEC selection and was the first of a string of tight ends that have been instrumental in Georgia’s offenses over the past decade.
Split End – Brice Hunter 1991 to 1994
Hunter was an All-SEC selection in 1994. He still holds the Georgia record for receptions in a single season (76) and he is currently 2nd on Georgia’s career list in receptions (182) and touchdowns (19).
Flanker – Terrance Edwards 1999 to 2002
Edwards was an All-SEC selection in 2002 and a member of the 2002 SEC Championship team. Edwards led the Dawgs in receiving every year he was in the Red and Black. He is Georgia’s career leader in receptions (204), receiving yards in a single season (1004), receiving yards (3093), touchdowns in a single season (11), and touchdowns (30).
Fullback – Frank Sinkwich 1939 to 1942
Sinkwich was a 2-time All-American, 2-time All-SEC selection, SEC Player of the Year in 1942, and Georgia’s 1st Heisman Trophy winner in 1942. He was a member of Georgia’s 1st SEC Championship team in 1942.
Tailback – Herschel Walker 1980 to 1982
Walker was a 3-time All-American, 3-time All-SEC, 3-time SEC Player of the Year, SEC Freshman of the Year in 1980, and the Maxwell Award winner in 1982. He was a member of three SEC Championship teams from 1980 to 1982 and a member of the 1980 National Championship team.
Walker came in 3rd in the 1980 Heisman Trophy voting, came in 2nd in the 1981 Heisman Trophy voting, and finally won the Heisman Trophy in 1982.
Walker still holds 11 SEC rushing records and numerous Georgia rushing records. His records include rushing yards in a single season (1891), rushing yards (5259), rushing yards per game (159.4), rushing touchdowns (49), total touchdowns (52), 200-yard rushing games (9), and 100-yard rushing games (28).
Quarterback – David Greene 2001 to 2004
Greene was a 3-time All-SEC selection, SEC Freshman of the Year 2001, SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year 2004, and was a member of the 2002 SEC Championship team.
Greene currently holds the NCAA record for wins (42) and is Georgia’s career leader in passing yards (11, 528), attempts (1440), completions (849), and touchdowns (72). He currently holds a total of 15 Georgia and 6 SEC passing records.
Center – Peter Anderson 1982 to 1985
Left Guard – Max Jean-Gilles 2002 to 2005
Right Guard – Royce Smith 1968 to 1971
Left Tackle – Bernard Williams 1990 to 1993
Right Tackle – Edgar Chandler 1964 to 1967
Tight End – Ben Watson 2000 to 2003
Split End – Hines Ward 1994 to 1997
Flanker – Andre Hastings 1989 to 1992
Fullback – Brannan Southerland 2005 to 2008
Tailback – Charlie Trippi 1942 to 1946
Quarterback – Eric Zeier 1991 to 1994
I know many will wonder why I put Sinkwich at Fullback, but how could I not put him in the same backfield with Herschel?
All I could imagine while creating this team is David Greene dropping back and faking to Herschel on one of his perfect play-action passes and going deep to Brice Hunter for six.
Could you imagine a team with a running back like Herschel and quarterback like Greene in the same back field?
This is truly a offense for the ages.
