Visitors will learn about coaching legend Glenn ‘Pop’ Warner, the first UGA football coach to coach for more than one year; ‘War Eagle’ Ketron, who overcame parental objections to become one of Georgia’s greatest players of the 1900s; and Herty Field, the campus site of so many early battles. The tragic story of Von Gammon, a UGA football player whose death during a game against the University of Virginia in 1897 nearly ended the UGA football program, is highlighted.

The Russell Building is open 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays (closed on all home football game days). The exhibit is open free to the public.
