Legendary Georgia Bulldog Dan Magill Dies in Athens

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, GA (WALB) -

Dan Magill, described by many as the greatest Georgia Bulldog of all time, died Saturday night in Athens at the age of 93.

An Athens native, Magill began his 60 year association with University of Georgia athletics as a baseball batboy in the 1930's and continued in numerous roles until his retirement in 1995.

Magill had no peer as an innovator and promoter, and is known nationally for building over time the country's finest collegiate tennis facility one that now bears his name. But his contributions to the University, the Athletic Association, and perhaps most of all to the people of Georgia have been great and many.
