Vince Dooley to be at Real Deals next Thursday


Dooley at the 30th reunion held in 2010

Georgia’s legendary coach and athletic director, Vince Dooley, will be visiting fans in Jefferson on Thursday, Dec. 6, as part of his book tour of Georgia.

Real Deals of Jefferson will host Dooley from 2-5 p.m. at 21 Cobb St. There is no admission, and the public is invited.

Since his retirement from the University of Georgia, Dooley has authored books which will be sold and autographed. “Dooley: My Forty Years at Georgia” is his best-selling autobiography. “Dooley’s Playbook: the 34 Most Memorable Plays in Georgia Football History” chronicles plays dating from 1919 and features vivid illustrations by artist Steve Penley. “Vince Dooley’s Garden – the Horticultural Journey of a Football Coach” features fabulous and famous gardens, including his own.

The latest book by Vince Dooley will be available

The just-released “History and Reminiscences of the University of Georgia” features his own research and writing about the storied flagship university as the nation’s oldest land grant institution. It is also illustrated by Penley. Additionally, Dooley brings numbered artist prints (from original paintings in his home), game day memorabilia, DVDs and other items.

“These are fun events as we travel across Georgia,” Dooley said, “As it’s up close with fans of all ages, and we had a terrific turnout at Real Deals last fall so they are kind enough to invite me again.”
