Members of the 1980 National Championship Bulldogs will be joining Filmmaker/Director Lenny Daniel in Athens today to promote the “1980 Dawgs” Documentary Film project. They will be talking with fans and signing autographs at the Red Zone in downtown Athens on Saturday from 1pm – 4pm.
So far, confirmed are 2-time All American Rex Robinson #5 and All American Freddie Gilbert #90, one of the best UGA defensive players of all time. Other members of the 1980 Dawgs team have also been invited.
Fans, their families, and kids really enjoy these events. The former players from this special group show a humble graciousness about their past and enjoy meeting fans, talking football, and joking around. The 1980 players are now at the age where they remember their playing years well and they don’t mind “letting their hair down” and talking with fans about what it was really like to be part of that special team. They will also give their views on current Bulldogs football.
