Spring Practice Update


The Georgia offense won three of five head-to-head competitions with their defensive teammates during Tuesday's spring practice at the Woodruff Practice Fields. The Dawgs worked out for just over two hours in full pads.

"It was a very spirited practice today," head coach Mark Richt said. "We had a great, great day. The offense won the day for the first time this spring.

The offense won three of five competitions but the competition was very, very good and very, very close. The first three drills were decided on the final play."

Center Ben Jones was pleased that his side of the ball rallied after a decisive defeat a week ago.

"We were excited that we were able to come out and win today," Jones said.

"Last Tuesday, I think we were zero for six. No one likes to lose. I know Orson Charles got after it and really got the offense fired up to compete today. We won drills, but the competition was great. It's hard to win those drills. Some times you have to get eight yards on a third and eight and when you do, it gets everyone very excited."

Tuesday's practice was the ninth of 14 sessions before the annual G-Day spring game at Sanford Stadium on Saturday, April 16 at 1 p.m. The Dawgs will have an off day on Wednesday before returning to workouts on Thursday.
