All-SEC, All-American, just to name a couple...... he was "the other guy on the line" opposite Rufus Guthrie, plus Bobby Caldwell, Ed Griffin, and Larry Stallings.

IOW, He was a hoss.

Sadly, this group of Octagenarians is thinning out.

RIP #60

Makes me very sad. Hate the Dodd guys dropping. Tech people need to really appreciate not only what great guys Dave and his ilk were both on the field and in life. These kinds of guys won’t be replicated

Dodd and his staff recruited and then developed a lot of world class OL--like Watson.

Those octogenarians made a major contribution to Ma Tech's endowment back in the Golden Age.
