Bulldog Football Goes Through Its Eighth Spring Practice

The Georgia football team practiced for two hours at the Woodruff Practice Fields in a picture-perfect day weather-wise on Tuesday.

This marked the eighth practice of the spring for the Bulldogs. Including the annual G-Day Game on April 12, the Bulldogs have seven more practice opportunities.

“We’re getting better,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “Without question, we’re getting better. We just need the guys to keep working and keep believing in their coaches. We need everyone to be all in to have a shot. They’re working hard and I’m proud of them.”

Inside linebackers coach Mike Ekeler was asked what he is looking for as he begins his first year working with the Bulldogs.

“I want to see effort and execution,” Ekeler said. “I want them to take what we’re teaching them in the classroom and apply it all on the field. And I want to see leadership. I want to see the whole package. I want to coach guys with passion, guys who want to get better.”

Regarding special teams, which Ekeler will help coordinate, he said, “The special teams kids are working their tails off. They’re making some good strides. They’re buying in to what we want to do. I’m really excited about where we’re at and where we’re going to be.”

The Bulldogs are working toward their annual G-Day Game on Saturday, April 12, at Sanford Stadium. G-Day is slated for 1 p.m., with gates opening at 11 a.m. Admission will be free.
