DawgNation story by Tori McElhaney

Perhaps the most heartwarming story from G-Day did not occur on the field. The third iteration of “Big Dawg” was back in and around Sanford Stadium, as Trent Woods carried on the tradition begun in his family two generations back.

His father, the late Mike “Big Dawg” Woods, was all known to UGA fans as that bald guy with the bulldog painted on his head.

Mike Woods died on Jan. 4. Trent Woods was likely the guy who took that picture of you and “Big Dawg.” This past weekend, Trent Woods was no longer taking the pictures, he was the focus of them.

“It has been a blessing, and painful,” Woods told the Red & Black, his voice cracking as he talked about his father. “I know my dad would be here right now with me, and I know that he would be having so much fun. But I also know that I am proud that I could do this for him right now.”

On the top of Woods’ head, where the face of a bulldog used to be, there were instead the words, “Family Tradition, to be cont….., 9/2/17.” The back of Woods’ head read simply, “In memory of Dad”
