Career highlights and awards
Robert Ligon "Bob" McWhorter (June 4, 1891 - June 29, 1960) played football and baseball at the University of Georgia. As a halfback, he scored 61 touchdowns from 1910 to 1913. In 1913, McWhorter became UGA’s first All-American. He was the captain of both the baseball and football teams in his senior year. He was a member of the Chi Phi Fraternity, Phi Kappa Literary Society, and Phi Beta Kappa at Georgia. Although he was offered a professional baseball contract, he instead chose to study law at the University of Virginia.
After becoming an attorney, he returned to Athens, Georgia to practice law. He was a four-term mayor of Athens (1940–1947) and a law professor at Georgia from 1923 to 1958. He died in the same town in which he was born, Athens, Georgia, on June 29, 1960, at the age of 69.
