Like many revered college football programs, the Georgia Bulldogs were built through dedicated recruiting and surprising events that shaped the foundation of the team. It took thorough recruiting from coaches like Kirby Smart and Mark Richt to land the Bulldogs top players up to the challenge of taking the program to the next level.

 

In The Road to Georgia, Jake Reuse and Patrick Garbin detail impactful behind-the-scenes recruiting tactics and conversations that launched Bulldogs football such as:

 

  • How UGA recruited several decades ago before the internet and social media
  • Why Herschel Walker, arguably the greatest college football of all time, decided to become a Bulldog
  • Horace King’s, one of UGA football’s first black signees, turbulent “road” to Georgia
  • How Richard Tardits, from Biarritz, France, went from not knowing how to play football when arriving at Georgia to becoming the program’s all-time leader in sacks and an NFL player.
  • How Isaac Nauta found out Kirby Smart was coming to Georgia

 

The Road to Georgia is a behind-the-scenes account of how a fan-favorite college football program was built, told by those who witnessed history being made and by those who helped build it. Bulldogs fans won’t want to miss the candid first-hand accounts of how UGA football, and what it represents, was constructed.
