June 14, 2019

Dawg Post is counting down the Top 50 UGA players of all time through the summer. Keep checking back eat weekday to see who we have next…

No. 33 - Freddie Gilbert, DL from Griffin

A two-time All-SEC performer and four-year starter, Gilbert was part of Georgia’s greatest four-year period in school history posting an overall record of 43-4-1 from 1980-83). 1980 national championship, three SEC championship, and four major bowl games - Gilbert helped solidify Georgia’s defensive line with the uncanny ability to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks. His 26 career sacks still rank sixth in Georgia’s all-time record book. He went on to play with Herschel Walker in the U.S.F.L. in 1983 before returning to the NFL’s Denver Broncos.
