Dodd's Luck: The Life and Legend of a Hall of Fame Quarterback and Coach by Robert Lee "Bobby" Dodd and Jack Wilkinson

Bobby Dodd's exploits have the character of nineteenth-century folk tales, but Dodd's Luck is a true story that spans the modern development of the South and the evolution of football as the second religion of the region. The stories are fascinating: a childhood somewhere between Huck Finn and Out Gang; becoming the "slowest all-American back that ever lived;" golfing duels with Bob Hope; the great footvall victories of the fifties; the unusual friendship and intense rivalry with Bear Bryant; the painful decision to pull Tech out of the SEC . . .

Bobby Dodd became the 3rd ever head coach in Georgia Tech's football history in 1945.
