UGA Football Workhorse Passes Away

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) _ University of Georgia officials say former
running back Kevin McLee, who ended his career as the Bulldogs'
all-time leading rusher, died after a stroke at his home in
California.
The 52-year-old McLee was a native of Uniontown, Pennsylvania,
who became an all-Southeastern Conference player.
He passed 1942 Heisman Trophy winner Frank Sinkwich to become
Georgia's all-time leading rusher in 1977 with 25-hundred and 81
career yards -- now fifth on Georgia's records.
He died yesterday. Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
In 1976, McLee rushed for 198 yards against Florida and followed
that with 203 against Auburn, the best back-to-back rushing
performances in school history at the time.
McLee, a two-time academic All-SEC pick, was inducted into the
Georgia-Florida Hall of Fame in 2005.
