Day 14 practice report

Posted Aug 22, 2005

ATHENS - The Georgia football team returned to workouts in preparation for the season opener on Monday, again under a sweltering hot sun.

The Bulldogs strapped on full pads for Monday's session, which lasted nearly two hours on the Woodruff Practice Fields. Georgia is less than two weeks away from kicking off the 2005 campaign against Boise State.

"It was very hot and very humid again today," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "The guys had to suck it up, and they did. We did a lot of scout team work, some inside drills and some 11-on-11. We got a lot of work done today."

Richt was asked about the Bulldogs' receiving corps, which has been hampered by injuries throughout the preseason camp.

"Someone I think who has taken advantage of the injuries is T.J. Gartrell," Richt said. "He's shown me some things the last couple of days."

Richt also announced after practice that the football program had presented a $10,000 check to Athletic Director Damon Evans for the endowed scholarship program. The money was raised at the Football 101 For Women session held earlier this summer and it will be used for a scholarship for women's athletics.

"I want to thank all the ladies for showing up and participating," Richt said, "and also for helping us out in this way."

The Bulldogs, who have been ranked No. 13 in the pre-season Associated Press and USA Today polls, will open their 2005 campaign two weeks from Saturday when they host No. 19-ranked Boise State.
