Former Georgia Running Back Kevin McLee Dies After Stroke

Kevin McLee, a former all-S.E.C. running back for the Bulldogs, passed away on Sunday after suffering a stroke.

Although his achievements in a Georgia uniform shortly thereafter were eclipsed by Herschel Walker, McLee concluded his collegiate career as the Red and Black's all-time leading rusher. After being named Rookie of the Year in 1975, McLee helped guide the 'Dawgs to the 1976 conference title with a 198-yard effort against Florida and a 203-yard day against Auburn.

He was a consensus all-S.E.C. first team selection and an honorable mention all-America selection in 1976, in addition to twice making the academic all-S.E.C. team.

Like fellow Georgia great Frank Sinkwich, whose career rushing record he surpassed, McLee was a Pennsylvania native. He resided in California at the time of his passing. Kevin McLee will be missed.

Go 'Dawgs!
