Friday Practice Report


With the start of school just three days away, Georgia’s football team continued preparations for the 2011 season at the Woodruff Practice Fields on Friday morning.

The Dawgs practiced for just more than two hours under partly overcast skies and following the session, coach Mark Richt was pleased with what he had seen.

“This was what I could call a very spirited practice with some great competition,” said Richt. “Guys were hustling, competing and trying their best to finish the drill.”

Richt noted that the final 11-on-11 drill that featured the offense versus the defense was tied going into the final four plays. The offense ended up winning the competition by a score of 10-8 with freshman wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell playing a key role in the victory.

“Malcolm made some big plays today at crunch-time,” Richt said. “He caught a touchdown pass late in the 11-on-11 drill that gave the offense another two points and helped them win the deal. Going by today, I would say Malcolm has had a really good progression.

“During the scrimmage on Wednesday, he missed too many assignments, which is typical of the freshmen. But that’s why we keep practicing and I think he is doing a great job so far.”

The Dawgs are scheduled to have two practices on Saturday with the annual watermelon cutting at the conclusion of the second practice late in the afternoon.

The annual Fans Picture Day will be held Saturday, August 20th, outside Sanford Stadium. Georgia football players and coaches will be available for autographs from 3-5 p.m.
