ATHENS, Ga. -- Hundreds of friends, family and dignitaries gathered Friday afternoon at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education to honor Charley Trippi -- a coal miner’s son from Pennsylvania who starred at Georgia in the 1940s and went on to become one of the most accomplished football players of all time.

A host of speakers paid tribute to the 90-year-old Trippi at the dais, including Athens mayor Nancy Denson, who declared Friday “Charley Trippi Day” in his adopted hometown.

“To me, this is a great day. I will cherish it the rest of my life,” Trippi said.
