, the legendary voice of the Georgia Bulldogs, died
yesterday at the age of 89.
Munson spent over four decades as the radio play-by-play announcer for the Georgia Bulldog Radio Network. To many Bulldog fans in rural Georgia, radio was the only way to experience a football game and Larry's growling calls and booming, gravelly voice are as tied to Georgia football as Uga and silver britches. He avoided any pretense of objectivity and was a rabid Georgia fan. Munson called 500 games.
Some famous calls:
"My God, a freshman!
" during the first game of the legendary runningback Herschel Walker
"Belue to Scott
" in the 1980 UGA-Florida game when a miraculous
"So we'll try to kick one a hundred thousand miles
" calling Kevin Butler's 60-yard field goal to beat Clemson in 1984.
"We stepped on their face with a hobnail boot
" when UGA beat Tennessee in the waning seconds in 2001.
And many more
We'll miss you, Larry.
