Former Georgia Bulldog... Kevin McLee... died Sunday at his home in California. The 52-year-old Pennsylvania native finished his playing days in Athens as the Bulldogs leading rusher. He rushed for 2,581 yards during his career, passing Frank Sinkwich on Georgia's all-time list.  He's still fifth on that list/

Mclee was inducted into the Georgia-Florida Hall-of-Fame two years ago. McLee was twice an academic All-SEC player... and always cherished the games against the Gators.  "As far as tradition goes, this is the number one tradition in the country for me," said McLee on the day he was inducted on October 29, 2005. "There's no other game like the Florida-Georgia game. I always made sure I did my job when we played Florida. I didn't hate Forida, I hated their team because we had to go beat them."

McLee was 52 years old.  Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
