Former Wildcats coach Bill Curry receives high honor

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia State coach Bill Curry has been named to
receive an award named for a former president.
Curry has been named the 2008 recipient of the President Gerald
R. Ford Legends Center Award, which honors former collegiate or pro
centers who have "made extraordinary contributions to his team
during his football career; or have proven to be an exemplary
citizen, philanthropist or leader in the business or football
community."
Former winners include Ford, Jim Otto and Alex Kroll, last
year's honoree. Curry will be honored on Jan. 17 at the Rimington
Trophy banquet in Lincoln, Neb. The Rimington Trophy is given
annually to the nation's top college center.
Curry played in three Super Bowls in his NFL career and was a
head coach for 17 years at Georgia Tech, Alabama and Kentucky and
worked an analyst for ESPN before accepting the job at Georgia
State.
