Georgia football players have been using the Bulldogs’ new Indoor Practice Facility for long enough that I’m not sure we can call it "new" anymore. But it’s definitely getting a new name.
But he was also a member of one of Vince Dooley’s first signing classes in Athens, and eventually an All-SEC defensive end. Payne’s father Porter, for whom the facility will also be christened, was a Bulldog letterman, and a captain of the 1949 team coached by Wally Butts.
The House of Payne is in effect, y’all. Until later...
