AS I RECALL | BILL CHASTAIN

By Tim Tucker



Clint Castleberry, legendary star of Georgia Tech’s 1942 football team, was killed when his plane disappeared off the West African coast in World War II. Bill Chastain – author of “Jackrabbit,” a book on Castleberry published last year — tells the story of the only player in Tech history to have his jersey number retired. Chastain’s book, “Jackrabbit: The Story of Clint Castleberry and the Improbable 1942 Georgia Tech Football Season,” is available from amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and billchastain.com
