If you did not know who the No. 1 was in this list, you have never watched a college football game in your life. Herschel Walker is not only the greatest tailback to play for the Dawgs, he is the greatest player in Bulldog history.
Walker led Georgia to three SEC titles and the 1980 National title. He was a member of three All-American and three All-SEC teams. He rushed for a total of 5259 rushing yards in his career and won the 1982 Heisman trophy.
He led the Dawgs to an overall record of 33-3, a 1-2 record in bowl games, and a perfect 11-0 against the Big Four.
Herschel still holds 11 SEC records and numerous Georgia records. His records include:
1) Rushing yards in a single season - 1891
2) Rushes in a game - 47
3) Rushes in a season - 385
4) Rushes in a career - 994
5) Rushing yards in a career - 5259
6) Rushing yards per game in a season - 171.9
7) Rushing yards per game in a career - 159.4
8) Rushes per game in a season - 35
9) Rushes per game in a career - 30.1
10) Rushing touchdowns in a career - 49
11) Total touchdowns in a career - 52
12) 200 yard rushing games - 9
13) 100 yard rushing games - 28
I know some might not agree with my list. The 2009 season is quickly approaching and maybe one of those tail backs will make this list one day. Please feel free to comment, if you agree or disagree.
