Spring Practice Continues


The Georgia football team took to the Woodruff Practice Fields under sunny skies on Saturday afternoon, as it continued spring practice.

Saturday’s practice was the first time that the players have competed in full pads this spring, which brought out a high level of intensity among the players.

“It was a very spirited practice today,” coach Mark Richt said. “It was the first day in full pads and the first time we have been able to tackle, hit below the waist and play some real football. I thought the guys competed very hard today and I saw some good things happening out there.”

The defense continued to shine, but Richt noticed improvement on the offensive side of the ball.

“The defense won the day again, but it wasn’t a shutout like the last time, which tells me the offense is improving and making progress,” Richt continued. “We are going to continue to work hard and get better every day.”

Georgia will practice three times next week, returning to the practice fields on Tuesday, March 27th.

The Dawgs will practice 11 more times this spring, culminating with the annual G-Day game on Saturday, April 14 at 3 p.m., inside Sanford Stadium.
