A.J. Green is the recipient of the university’s 2017 Young Alumni Award, a honor given annually to Bulldogs who show a continued commitment to UGA. That’s a nice recognition for a great player who was kicked to the curb for four games in his last season in Athens through the athletic department’s ineptness to protect him in the face of an overreaching NCAA investigation.
What was the key to this fond turnaround? Do you really need to ask?
Green, who played at UGA from 2008-2010 has continued to visit and contribute financially to UGA and the football program since choosing to forego his senior season and entering the 2011 NFL Draft. [Emphasis added.]
I swear, if Jim Harrick and his son ever make financial contributions to UGA, they’d be welcomed back with open arms. ‘Cause that’s how the Georgia Way rolls, peeps.
