It’s almost time Dawg fans! The Georgia Bulldogs began Fall practice yesterday in preparation for the 2010 football season and the opener September 4 against Louisiana-Lafayette.
Redshirt freshman Aaron Murray enters as the number one quarterback followed by true freshman Hutson Mason. Parker Welch and Greg Bingham, both true freshman walk-ons, round out the young quarterback crew.
One of the hottest news stories from practice yesterday is that Murray will not wear a glove on his throwing hand. He wore one during Spring practice.
Logan Gray, who decided not to transfer from Georgia in May, will work out primarily at wide receiver. However, he was asked by Mark Richt to stay “mentally prepared” if they need him at quarterback.
Leading the other skill positions are junior wide receiver A.J. Green and running backs Washaun Ealey (sophomore) and Caleb King (junior).
On the offensive line, the Dawgs return all five starters who will be key in protecting Aaron Murray. And Trinton Sturdivant returns from another torn ACL.
On the defensive side of the ball, new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is installing his 3-4 scheme. Georgia fans can expect a blitzing, attacking defense rather than the “bend but don’t break” approach of the last few years.
