Former Georgia quarterback David Greene signs a shirt for Aria Martin, 7, of Evans, at the Augusta Bulldog Club meeting. Greene finished his college career with the NCAA record for career wins as a quarterback.

The former Bulldogs quarterback, who finished his college days with the NCAA record for career wins, is married with two young sons. After spending time with four NFL teams, Greene, 30, has settled down in Grayson, Ga., working with former Georgia lineman Matt Stinchcomb at an insurance brokerage firm in Atlanta. He said he enjoys not working as a football analyst like some of his former teammates.

“I’m pretty content with where I am,” Greene said. “I prefer to follow Georgia football and not have to keep up with every team across the country.”

Greene was honored Thursday by the Augusta Bulldog Club at its preseason football kickoff at Julian Smith Casino. Greene signed autographs and talked football with Bulldog fans.

Greene and his wife, Veronica, have a busy life with 4-year-old Jordan and 16-month-old Barrett.

The left-hander considers 2002 his favorite season. Georgia opened with eight consecutive wins before falling to Florida. The Bulldogs bounced back to win their final five games, including victories over Arkansas in the Southeastern Conference Championship game and Florida State in the Sugar Bowl.

“I think hands down that was the best team I’ve ever been on with the way we really came together,” he said. “That’s about the only one-loss team that didn’t have a chance to play for a national championship. We really peaked at the right time.

“It was a fun year. It was really sort of magical.”

Greene said his old team should be able to make a run at a title this year.

“The talent is there,” he said. “There’s a lot of pieces to the puzzle that have to come together. I think Georgia has a shot every year.”

UGA SEASON OPENER

The Georgia Bulldogs open their season at Sanford Stadium at noon Sept. 1 (SEC Network) against the Buffalo Bulls.
