Larry Munson, the iconic voice of the Georgia Bulldogs, has died. Munson's son Michael announced Sunday that his father had passed away at the age of 89 from complications from pneumonia. Munson was the radio play-by-play announcer for the Bulldogs from 1966 to 2008.
Munson's career spanned over 60 years, and included stints in minor league baseball for almost two decades before he made a home in Georgia. While Munson's time in the booth also included stints with the Atlanta Falcons and Georgia Bulldogs basketball team, he was best known for his spirited calls of big Georgia plays, marveling with a gravelly drawl at the spectacle before him.
Munson left the Georgia program in 2008, citing health concerns, and he stayed largely out of the public spotlight in his final years. Still, to millions of Georgia fans, he was inseperable as an entity from the Bulldog football team, and both the broadcasting world and the college football world have lost a legend.
Here are some of Munson's best-known calls.
