Patrick Garbin

PATRICK GARBIN is a freelance journalist who has been recognized as an authority and historian of college football and “the foremost historian of Georgia Bulldogs football.” He has written seven traditionally-published books, six of which are on University of Georgia football, and has been a consultant and researcher for several other book projects. In addition, Patrick maintains the About Them Dawgs! Blawg—the only website primarily dedicated to the history and tradition of UGA’s football program. Garbin has contributed research and writings to numerous sources, including several newspapers and magazines in the Southeast, the College Football Hall of Fame, the Sports Communications department at the University of Georgia, ESPN, SI.com, Covers.com, PhilSteele.com, CNN Sports Illustrated and CNN Sports. Patrick has made numerous public appearances, speaking to groups primarily on the topics of college football and the book publishing industry. In addition, he has participated in dozens of book signings, been featured in radio and television interviews, and has conducted more than 100 player and coach interviews for his books, blog, articles, and other work. Notably, during the fall 2012, Garbin began a pursuit to reestablish UGA football’s Hugh Hendrix Memorial Award, named after a Bulldog player who mysteriously passed away prior to the 1976 season. The honor was annually bestowed from 1976 to the early 1990s until being curiously discontinued by the program. Because of Garbin’s persistent efforts for 19 months, the UGA athletic department reestablished Hugh’s award in spring 2014.
