DGD Fund: Barking with Co-Founder Payne Walker

DGD Fund: Barking with Co-Founder Payne Walker

Payne Walker - co-founder of the DGD Fund, former Georgia long-snapper, two-time national champion, and Damn Good Dawg - joins the show to bark about:

- The DGD Fund's growth since its founding almost two years ago

- Excitement about athletes from almost every sport at Georgia now contributing to DGD Fund's mission

- Overwhelming support from Athens and the UGA community

- Payne's transition from being an invaluable part of back-to-back national championships as player to stepping on the field in a different role for the Dawgs as the quest for a 3-peat begins

- Memories that stick out from the Dawgs consecutive title runs

- How #KnowYourSnappers may have been responsible for an awesome interaction with a Dawgs supporter at The Players Championship

Go Dawgs, Sic 'Em!
