On Monday night, October 3rd, the Macon Touchdown Club will welcome retired Coach Ray Goff of the University of Georgia as our feature speaker.
Ray Goff attended the University of Georgia, where he played quarterback from 1974–1976, leading the team to 19 wins over his final two seasons under coach Vince Dooley. As a player, he was named Southeastern Conference player of the year in 1976 when the team he captained won the SEC title. He was a three-year letterman at Georgia.
Goff served as an assistant coach for the South Carolina Gamecocks before returning to Georgia as an assistant in 1981. While an assistant at Georgia from 1981 to 1988, he held the positions of recruiting coordinator, tight ends coach and running backs coach, and earned a reputation as an excellent recruiter. When Dooley, the winningest coach in Georgia history, retired after the 1988 season, Goff — then a 33-year-old running backs coach — was the surprise choice to succeed him.
Goff’s tenure got off to a slow start, with just ten wins in his first two seasons, before reeling off nine wins in 1991 and ten in 1992. The latter campaign finished with Georgia ranked eighth by the Coaches Poll. He completed his coaching career at the end of the 1995 season.
As always, we will meet at The Methodist 金博棋牌 For Children, in The Rumford Center. The address is 304 Pierce Avenue, and the meeting begins at 6:30 pm.
Guest Fee is $30.00, and includes dinner, club activities, recognition of local high school athletes, recognition of a local high school and the speaker.
