Some of you older posters may remember George when he played RB for the Tigers 1957 - '59. George passed Away here in Clemson last night. He was a native of Waycross, GA and was the starting RB on the 1958 and 1959 teams.

That was George’s Nickname, guess for his style of running.

Salute & R.I.P. Tiger Gentleman.

George got his nickname "Pogo" because he came from Waycross, GA, which is near the Okeefenokee Swamp. I worked in Waycross many years ago so George and I would talk about Waycross.
