    This thread is for your favorite Jackets, but not the necessarily the GREATest Jackets. I'm going with "The Little Engine that Could", Robbie Godhigh. Loved the little guy with the big ticker and fast wheels. Another player that had a similar journey to him, Isiah Willis, was a guy who I really liked as a player. On defense, I loved Jamal Golden and Julian Burnett. Burnett is one of the better "what could have been"s in recent memory. Who are your favorite GT players that we overlook?

    Offensive- Anthony Allen at B back was insane. Everyone seems to forget he finished his playing time at that position and was a monster.

    Defense- Brandon Watts at linebacker. Led the team in tackles at least for one season I can think of and had good speed.

    On defense, Isaiah Johnson and Patrick Gamble. On offense, Trey Braun and Zach Laskey.

    Edit: CCG era would be James Johnson and Mike Cox on offense and Joe Anoai (Roman Reigns) and Kenny Scott on defense.

    Gary Lee. Whenever we needed a big play, he stepped up. Best known for the kickoff return to help beat UGA in '85, but he did so much more, with surprisingly little fanfare.

    Tim Byerly. Dude did nothing but succeed at every chance. Happened to share the roster with JFT, but I would've loved to have seen the offense with him as the man for a season or two ... think Nesbitt but with really good touch. Might could've been a great one.

    Tony Daykin, David Tedder (at least in that n.d. game), Gary Lanier, Adrian Rucker, K Rhino, Johnny Gresham, David Beavin,

    Tash Van Dora - name alone qualifies him.

    It's like your reading my mind. Keith Brooking got all the pub, but Ron Rogers was a beast. And Kelly Rhino was the most fearless punt returner I have ever seen. I remember him calling for exactly one fair catch in his career and everyone in the stadium was shocked.
