Sunday Practice Report


The Dawgs practiced for just over two hours in shoulder pads and shorts on Sunday morning, the team's fourth session of the preseason and final workout before moving to full pads.

The practice began with a brief shower and included intermittent drizzle throughout.
"I thought we had great energy today," coach Mark Richt said. "We caught a break with the weather. We're practicing in the morning not only to try to beat the heat but also to try to beat the afternoon showers."

Richt said the Dawgs' offense looked solid. "The offensive skill guys had a good day," Richt said. "There was very good running, throwing and catching. If we were keeping score today, I think the offensive guys would've gotten the best of it."

DSC_6883Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said he is pleased but still looking for more competitiveness from his unit. "We've got some players who are competing and some players that need to learn how to compete" Grantham said. "The guys I'm counting on, I like what I'm seeing, but it takes 11 guys and it takes depth. If you're on our team and play defense, you have to know how to compete."

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has been impressed with the leadership of his veterans.
"I've been pleased with the tempo so far," Bobo said. "Aaron Murray, Ben Jones, Tavarres King and Marlon Brown have done a great job of leading this group during practice. I've been pleased with their leadership. We'll find out tomorrow when we put pads on who will strike somebody and who won't flinch."

The Dawgs will conduct their initial practice in full pads on Monday morning. On Tuesday, the team will practice twice.
