The Georgia football team held its first full pads practice of the spring Tuesday afternoon at the Woodruff Practice Fields. The Bulldogs worked out for two and a half hours in what was their fourth practice this spring.
A large contingent of faculty members and their families attended Tuesday’s practice as part of the Bulldogs’ annual faculty appreciation.
“It was a long, hard physical day,” said head coach Mark Richt. “I thought the guys fought hard, but we have to learn to fight even more. Little by little we are getting there.”
The Bulldogs have had a handful of practices under several new offensive assistant coaches. Said Greg Pyke on new offensive line coach Rob Sale: “Coach Sale is a really good guy. He is big on fundamentals, and he has put in some new things. We are doing a good job with that, and we had a good practice today.”
Georgia will practice again Thursday and Friday before the first scrimmage of the spring on Saturday.
The annual G-Day Game is slated for Saturday, April 11 at 2 p.m. Gates at Sanford Stadium will open at noon, and admission is free. The Bulldogs open their 2015 season against Louisians-Monroe in Athens on Sept. 5.
