Former Georgia football player and current ESPN College GameDay analyst David Pollack officially has a spot in the College Football Hall of Fame. The Bulldog legend deserves this honor as he was part of the early culture change years that turned Georgia into what they are today.
One of the most memorable moments from this former defensive end had to be the strip-sack-touchdown against South Carolina, but Pollack did so much more at Georgia.
Now he is one of the best analysts on television. He also coaches his son’s football team and is overall a stand-up guy. Pollack deserves to be in the hall of fame for wreaking terror against many offenses when he donned the Red and Black.
David Pollack officially is in the College Football Hall of Fame, and rightfully so.
As part of the 2020 class, when he spoke at the ceremony, his emotions showed how important this moment meant to him. Pollack wore a fantastic red, black and silver tie along with a perfect shade of gray suit — he looked the part of a hall of famer.
He held back tears throughout the time he spoke, and it was so awesome to see him get a little choked up about things.
Pollack is one of the most deserving individuals despite being a little younger than most inductees. However, his influential role on Georgia’s team, including being a big reason the Dawgs won the 2002 SEC Championship, helped get him to this spot.
Unfortunately, his NFL career was cut short due to a neck injury, but he found his calling. So many Dawg fans question whether he is loyal or not, but Pollack is — he bleeds Georgia football.
That video last week reaffirmed his love, and while sometimes, he is harder on the Dawgs than others because he knows what they are capable of doing. Pollack is a good analyst who isn’t biased about his team unless he feels exceptionally confident. Even then, he lays it out unbiasedly and professionally.
It’s good to see Pollack’s hard work pay off and earn him a spot in the College Football Hall of Fame. Make sure you tweet him and congratulate him since it’s finally official.
