Friday Practice Report


The Georgia football team held its second practice of preseason camp Friday afternoon, working out for approximately two and a half hours in shorts and helmets. The Dawgs will practice in shoulder pads on Saturday and Sunday before donning full pads for the first time Monday.

“Yesterday I thought everybody was really willing to put in a hard day’s work and started off well, and right at the very end I think the heat got to them a little bit,” Richt said. “We didn’t finish as strong as we should. Today was much better all the way around. We did get some cloud cover that helped, but I thought we had tremendous energy all the way around and it was a good second day. Everything went like clockwork.”

Richt noted that he and his staff have been able to get a feel for the Dawgs’ true freshmen after two practices.

“We are pleased with the talent base and the attitude and willingness to be learned and coached,” Richt said of the freshmen. “Their skill sets are outstanding, and the athleticism is outstanding. I heard a lot of coaches talk about the explosive ability of the defensive players that play on or near the line of scrimmage.

“I think we did a good job of bringing in some outstanding freshmen. We felt like every one of them have a very good chance of contributing this season. Time will tell if all of them will play, but we feel like they are all in the running to help us win this year.”

Beginning Saturday, Georgia will practice in the mornings until classes start on Monday, August 13th. The Dawgs are slated to practice 10 straight days to start camp before an off day August 12th.
