ATHENS, Ga. - More than 60 Georgia football letterwinners from seven different decades are expected to return to Sanford Stadium on Saturday, April 22, to take part in the annual lettermen’s flag football game prior to the Bulldogs’ G-Day spring game.  The lettermen’s game is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. before the G-Day kickoff at 2 p.m.

Derrick Bailey, who lettered in 1991, will coach the Red Team while Kevin Jackson, who lettered from 1980-82, will coach the Black Team.  Bobby Poss will serve as the public address announcer.

Ten-year NFL veteran Tim Jennings along with SEC record-breaking kicker Marshall Morgan are among the former players who are returning to Athens for Saturday’s festivities.

James “Pud” Mosteller, an All-SEC lineman who lettered from 1954-56 and former referee later in life, is the oldest lettermen scheduled to participate.  Mosteller is slated to be a manager for the Black Team.  Linebacker Ronnie Huggins, who lettered as a linebacker from 1967-69, is the oldest player scheduled to play in the game.

This year’s G-Day game will begin at 2 p.m. and will be televised by the SEC Network.  There will be no admission fee charged and Sanford Stadium gates will open at 11 a.m.

UGA will use G-Day to implement the SEC’s Clear Bag Policy, which will go into effect at all SEC venues beginning this fall.  The policy will also be in effect, beginning in the 2017-18 competition year, at all of UGA’s ticketed sports venues: Sanford Stadium, Stegeman Coliseum (men and women’s basketball, gymnastics) and Foley Field (baseball).  More information on the SEC Clear Bag Policy can be found at: http://georgiadogs.com/clear-bag-policy.
