Georgia Vs. Georgia Tech: Larry Munson To Be Honored At Grant Field

Could not approve of this move more. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will include departed Georgia Bulldogs announcer Larry Munson in a memorial just before the two rivals take the field. Wes Durham, 790 The Zone's Georgia Tech play-by-play announcer, who's counted himself as an admirer and friend of Munson's, will lead proceedings.

Former Tech All-American Hal Miller, a co-captain of the 1952 championship team, and Georgia broadcasting legend Larry Munson, both of whom died this week, will be honored in a pregame ceremony led by Tech play-by-play voice Wes Durham. It will take place just before the senior-day recognition.    

There will be grumbles from a small portion or two of Bobby Dodd Stadium, but Durham is sufficiently respected among Jackets fans to quell any who might be short-sighted enough to have a problem with this. The very few Tech fans who won't appreciate the gesture will quickly get over it.
