Vince Dooley to visit Wiregrass’ Valdosta campus

VALDOSTA — Georgia’s legendary coach and athletic director, Vince Dooley, will visit fans on Oct. 30 at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College’s Valdosta Campus. Wiregrass will host Dooley from 2 to 5 p.m. in Brooks Hall on the Valdosta Campus at 4089 Val Tech Road.

Since his retirement from the University of Georgia, Dooley has authored books which will be sold and autographed. “Dooley: My Forty Years at Georgia” is his best-selling autobiography. “Dooley’s Playbook: The 34 Most Memorable Plays in Georgia Football History” chronicles plays dating from 1919 and features vivid illustrations by artist Steve Penley.

“Vince Dooley’s Garden: The Horticultural Journey of a Football Coach” features fabulous and famous gardens, including his own.

 The recently released “History and Reminiscences of the University of Georgia” features his own research and writing about the storied flagship university as the nation’s oldest land grant institution. It is also illustrated by Penley.

 A book written and illustrated for Children, “How Bout Them Dawgs” is included in the presentation.

 Additionally, Dooley will present numbered artist prints (from original paintings in his home), game day memorabilia, national championship DVD sets, and other items.

 “These are fun events as we travel across Georgia,” Dooley said, “as it is up close with fans of all ages.”
