2006 Spring Practice: Day 6 Practice Report

ATHENS - The University of Georgia football team continued its spring workouts Wednesday afternoon with a full-contact two-hour session at the Woodruff practice fields.

"Today was a very physical day," said head coach Mark Richt. "The guys stepped up and met the challenge, they didn't back down. Overall this is probably been the most competitive spring we've had here. The offense and defense have been very equal in terms of who wins a particular drill. The scores have been as close as I've seen."

Richt also singled out some players who have been performing especially well and commented on the team's senior leadership.

"Thomas Brown has had a dominating spring," said Richt. "He has really set himself apart from almost everyone on the team. He is one guy that is playing a level above. And then our veterans, who should be playing well, have been. Guys like Quentin Moses, Daniel Inman, Tra Battle, Nick Jones, Tony Taylor, Ken Shackleford and Jarvis Jackson have been doing a fine job. Also, some of our younger guys are doing well too. Kris Durham has made some strides and Kade Weston and Ricardo Crawford have shown a lot of potential."

Finally, Richt announced that at the end of the G-Day game on April 8, the team will hold a ring ceremony to honor Georgia's 2005 SEC Championship.

"We hope that our fans will stick around after the game and help us celebrate a little bit," said Richt.
