ALBANY -- Dodd Rentz is the first to admit that it will be hard for Georgia football coaching legend Vince Dooley to ever top his book "My Forty Years at Georgia."

But Rentz, a partner in Dooley's latest book "Dooley's Playbook: The 34 Most Memorable Plays in Georgia Football History," knows one thing for certain about this one: The coach has yet another winner on his hands.

On Tuesday, Dooley will make a one-day stop in Southwest Georgia at the center court of the Albany Mall between 4-7 p.m. to sign copies and talk to fans about his most recent ode to the Bulldogs.

"This book is just different from his others, plus it's hard to beat (a book where) coach Dooley gives his personal insight looking back over all those coaching years," Rentz said Sunday. "This is a great coffee table book where you sit down and take a minute to go over some of the greatest moments in Bulldogs history."

Rentz further described the book as a "collaboration between Dooley and renowned (Georgia artist and Bulldogs alum) Steve Penley. The book chronicles 34 of the most memorable plays in Georgia football history as chosen by coach Dooley. Coach Dooley gives a detailed description of each play and also diagrams the plays in his own hand. Each play is completed with an artistic rendering by Penley."

There is also a section of the book dedicated to the great kickers in UGA history, as well as a chapter on all the Bulldogs who've reached the College Football Hall of Fame.
