Vince Dooley's days as Georgia head football coach ended in 1988, 16 years before parting ways as Athletics Director. But since then the coach has had no problem filling his schedule. On Monday night that schedule took him to the Macon Touchdown Club.
The Bulldog legend won 201 games on the sidelines in Athens, including the 1980 National Championship.
Coach Dooley talked about his time as head coach, his newfound connection with Knoxville thanks to his son Derek, and the challenges of coaching in a stacked league like the SEC.
Dooley said every team will go through a slump like the Bulldogs did early this year, but that the team we've seen the last two weeks is the one he expected.
"I think the'yve grown up, got a little more confidence," Dooley said. "I think Coach Richt has taken a sterner attitude a couple weeks ago, and they put pads on on Monday. That was a good indication that we need to step it up and I think they have stepped it up."
This week's awards went to Central Fellowship senior quarterback Drakkar Jackson, who took Back of the Week after racking up 300 yards of offense and a touchdown against Gatewood.
The Lineman of the Week was Windsor's Jacob Coursey. The junior linebacker totalled 13 solo tackles and a fumble recovery on defense, while running for 32 yards and throwing for a touchdown on offense in the Knights' loss to Westwood.
Robert Slocumb and Mount de Sales were the featured school.
