I'm glad he'll be able to lead a normal life outside of football, but it sucks we won't get to see him play anymore. I loved watching him play at Georgia. He was an every down, no play off time of player. If he was on the field, he was playing 110%.
I think I mentioned this when the injury happened, but I'll mention it again. He made one of the best plays I've ever seen in football, college or nfl. The Dawgs had the other team (don't remember who, maybe Georgia Tech) backed up at their own goalline. Pollack beats his man around the edge, dives at the QB as he cocks his arm back to throw, hits the QB's arm as he spins around him, some how the football ends up cradled in one arm as he spins around the QB and lands in the end zone. TD!!!
That's one of those plays that sticks in my head when i think about football. Its right up there with Bettis plowing over Urlacher for a TD.
Scratch that, it looks like it was Arkansas they were playing.
Here's a vid, they show it at just about 30 seconds. I might capture the video and slow it down some when i get a minute. http://youtube.com/watch?v=TN1EhBcw_v0
