Most Dawg fans know that Charlie Trippi is one of the 3 greatest and most decorated Bulldogs. He won the Maxwell Award in 1946, and he played on Orange, Sugar, Oil and Rose Bowl teams. Along with being a dominating single wing halfback, I once heard Bill Hartman call him "the best defensive back to ever play at UGA."
But did you know that he is also tied for the the 4th highest all-time single season batting average in SEC history at .464. And oh yeah...that was with a wooden bat.
That's Mister Damn Good Dawg to you son.
