Georgia football returns to practice
ATHENS, Ga. – Three days removed from the annual G-Day Game, the Georgia football team practiced for two hours in shorts and helmets Tuesday afternoon at the Woodruff Practice Fields.
“We went in shorts today, and we got better,” said head coach Mark Richt. “We got in a lot of routine reps, and we’re still putting them through a lot of situations to help us get better. We worked on some late game type plays today as well.”
This was the 14th of 15 practices this spring for the Bulldogs, who will practice one final time on Thursday afternoon.
Said senior tight end Jay Rome: “We wanted to have an opportunity to practice after G-Day and break down the film and fine tune some of the things we did wrong and the things we need to work on. We have to give ourselves motivation. As seniors we have to get the younger guys ready. It’s not easy to be focused sometimes after paying a game, so some of the older guys have to remind the younger guys that every day is a day we can get better.”
Georgia will kick off the 2015 season against Louisiana-Monroe Sept. 5 in Athens. The Bulldogs’ SEC opener is the following week at Vanderbilt.
