The Charisma of Coach Richt and Coach Fox
Posted on Apr 29, 2009 by Andrew Miller |
For the past 4 or 5 years my job has afforded me the pleasure of attending the majority of the Bulldog Road Tour events that the Athletic Association puts together for the benefit of Bulldog fans statewide. Each year some of the venues may change, but there has been one constant; Coach Richt and his personal magnetism. For those of you who have never met Coach Richt, you have probably grown to appreciate him from watching his interviews on television, listening to him on the radio, and from reading his quotes and interviews in Bulldawg Illustrated and online. That said, there is something uniquely genuine about Coach Richt that can only be experienced in person. Maybe it is the way he can make you feel like you are the only one in the room while there is a line dozens deep behind you to get his autograph or picture taken with him? Maybe it is the way that he never seems to glance at his watch or look over your shoulder to indicate he is ready to move on to the next Dawg fan? Maybe it is the way he makes sure that nobody leaves without an opportunity to have a few words with him, even if it means staying later than he anticipated? In truth, its all of these things combined.
Coach Fox is new to the Bulldog Road Tour circuit this year, but it quickly became obvious to me that he shares the same type of charisma that Coach Richt and so few others possess. He’ll look you square in the eye, ask how you are doing, and make you feel like you are truly important to him. He will answer each and all of your questions and ask some about you and your family. He will gladly pose for a photograph with you and do it with an easy smile.
I implore you to take advantage of the Bulldog Road Tour event closest to you so you can experience these men in person. Go shake their hand during the reception hour and take your kids so they can have their photo made with two of the classiest individuals in the state of Georgia. Then stick around and listen to them both speak about their program and field questions from the audience. If you’ve not met them yet, what are you waiting for?
Upcoming Bulldog Club Road Tour events can be found by visiting the Bulldawg Illustrated online calendar at the bottom right of our homepage. Just click on the calendar to view them. There is one in Rome, Ga tonight, three more in the month of May, and a final one in July at the Cobb Galleria outside of Atlanta. Load up the car and get there if you can! Go Dawgs!
Andrew...You are right on with this article. When Coach Fox had his introduction press conference, it reminded me a lot of Coach Richt. I am looking forward to meeting Coach Fox this Thursday at the Chattachoochee Valley Bulldog Club Meeting in Columbus. Thanks, Bryan
