Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Doug Webb


Retired from the Forest Service in 2008. After graduating from UGA in 1970 I spent 3 years with private industry in Tennesse and then went to work for the Dept. of Interior in Arizona and Alaska. I started with the Forest Service in 1976 in California, then back to Georgia, Louisiana, and have been in Arkansas since 1989. I spent the first part of my career in timber management, recreation, fire control, and law enforcement and was in administration for the last 18 years,until I retired.
Returning to Waycross was a thrill in 2005 as it had been over 30 years since I was there. I almost ended up there again during the fire of 2007, but got assigned to the Florida side out of Lake City.
I retired in 2008 and spent some time as a consultant for the oil and gas industry out this way till the market colapsed in late 2009. We spent some time traveling since then with a trip to Beijing, China in 2010, one trip to Alaska and down the West Coast and 3 trips to Montana including a Grandkid trip to Yellowstone in 2013.
This year I have been working as a reserve Deputy with the local Sheriff's Office primarily doing Court Bailiff work and prisoner transport with a little patrol time thrown in every now and then.
Mary Jane and I have been married 48 years with 4 children,8 Grandchildren, and one Great Granddaughter.

Henry Bussey says to contact him at [email protected] if you would like more information about the video above. He sent more information below regarding the video. Georgia High School Football: Valdosta vs Waycross, September 20, 1963 and Coach Earl O’Neal [This video was provided by Coach O’Neal’s daughter, digitized by my son-in-law, and “adjusted” for our class website by Helen Atwood] -Henry Bussey Coach Earl O’Neal, who had been a standout high school football player at Valdosta (VHS), went on to play at Florida State before becoming the head Coach at Waycross High School (WHS). Under Coach O’Neal, WHS which won back to back state championships in 1960 & 61. The 1960 team was ranked #1 in the nation and won the state title by a score of 49 – 0 against a team that had held opponents to an average of 2 points per game. That 1960 team’s remarkable story is recorded in the book Buffaloes & Beatniks” by Joey McQuaig. After coaching at WHS for several years, Coach O’Neal moved to Conyers, GA where he became a civic leader, a state congressman, and was elected “Man of the Year”. But when he passed away, there was only one game film that he had saved… the saved game film was not either of the 2 WHS state championship games he had coached, and it was not from his days at VHS or FSU. The lone game film found in his office was of the 1963 VHS vs WHS game. To understand the significance of that game to Coach O’Neal, one has to appreciate the history of the two teams. WHS beat VHS in the last game of the ’59 season. In 1960, VHS began a 3-yr winning streak that earned them 3 consecutive state titles and one national title in 1962. After the ’59 win, WHS did not play VHS again until 1962 when the two teams played in Valdosta before an overflow crowd of 15,000 (the population of both towns combined was approximately 50,000 at the time). WHS lost by a score of 48 to 13. A devastated and tearful Coach O’Neal left what once was his home field. As devastating as that 48 to 13 loss was, it should be noted that no other team that year scored more than 7 points against VHS and they went on to be ranked #1 nationally. In fact, throughout the VHS 3-yr winning streak of 37 games, only 3 teams score more than 13 points and each of those 3 scored only 14 points…no team in 37 games had scored more than 14 points on VHS!. After 3 consecutive unbeaten seasons and being ranked #1 nationally in 1962, VHS started its 1963 season with a win (#37 straight) and WHS was the second game on their schedule. Hopes were high in Waycross and the whole town seemed to be excited as the game approached and VHS, the reigning national champs, was coming to town. WHS took the opening kickoff, drove the ball down the field in 12 plays before turning the ball over on downs. VHS ran 3 plays and punted; WHS repeated their previous drive and again turned the ball over on downs. VHS fumbled and WHS recovered; 2 plays later, senior halfback, Donnie Miller, scored on a play off right tackle. Later in the game, junior defensive back David Zachery intercepted one of the few VHS passes and ran it back for the second touchdown. The WHS kicker (who will remain nameless) missed the extra point on both TDs. A swirling WHS defense held VHS scoreless and, late in the game, junior James Kurtz picked off a 2nd VHS pass to “ice” the game. The game was a 12 – 0 win for WHS. A further observation of this game is that, near the end of the game, VHS in desperation started using a quick little jump pass play just over the line of scrimmage. I never saw that play before nor after until Tim Tebow used it at U.FL. VHS did “re-group” and in the decade of the 60s, VHS won the state championship 7 out of 10 years (did not win state in '63,'64 and '67) and 2 "national" championships ('62,'69).
