I read with great sorrow to learn of the passing of Coach Carlen. I remember him so vividly as a valuable member of the 1952 Georgia Tech National Championship Team and in the 50s and 60s as an Assistant Coach. Bobby Dodd was my boyhood hero in the 1950s, and he personally told me in the 1980s on a visit to Carrollton that the 1962 Alabama game was his greatest victory.

Meredith and the Carlen clan, we're going to miss this "one of a kind" friend. Never a stranger did he meet and he seemed to know everyone. We learned a lot from Jim; never hold back, treat people nice quitely, we could go on and on. He will surely be missed by all. We are better in our lives for having known him. All our love, Marty and Jacki Pauls
