As I’m sure many of you have already heard, Paul Oliver has passed away.
This is, indeed, how I’ll always remember him:
Oliver played at Georgia from 2004 to 2006 as a cornerback. He’s best known for his performance against former Georgia Tech receiver Calvin Johnson on Nov. 25, 2006. Johnson, considered the best receiver in the NFL now, caught just two passes for 13 yards in that game and Oliver sealed the 15-12 win with an interception on the Yellow Jackets’ final possession.
The manner of his death makes me wonder about concussions, of course, but it’s way too early to tell about something like that. In any event, my sincere condolences to his family for their loss.
