This Week's Speaker
Bulldog Player & Coach John Kasay

John Paul Kasay played on former coach Vince Dooley’s first team in 1964 and has been a member of the Bulldog family ever since. Kasay had an outstanding senior season in 1966 as a starting offensive guard and that year was chosen to the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED All-Bowl first team after Georgia defeated SMU in the 1966 Cotton Bowl game 24-9. Kasay served as special teams coach and offensive assistant from 1969-82 and served as the Bulldogs’ director of strength and conditioning from 1982-95. John will share his 49 years of service to the Georgia Bulldogs with our club and our Roswell High Football seniors.
