2006 Spring Practice: Day 8 Scrimmage Report


Posted Mar 25, 2006


ATHENS - The University of Georgia football team had its first full-contact scrimmage of the spring for just less than two hours at Sanford Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Following the scrimmage which was under blue skies and with a number of top high school junior prospects looking on, Georgia head coach Mark Richt pointed out several highlights he noticed.

"Our catching was as good today as I can remember during any scrimmage," Richt said. "Joe (Tereshinski) had a couple touchdowns, one to Des Williams and one to Kenneth Harris. Blake Barnes had one to J.J. (Jason Johnson). (Matthew) Stafford also had a long bomb to Mikey Henderson and a touchdown to Coleman Watson."

On defense, Richt also singled out junior defensive end Charles Johnson, who stalled one of the No. 1 offense's drive with his penetration, and senior defensive end Quentin Moses, who had a couple of sacks. In addition, Richt said January enrollee Asher Allen knocked the ball loose from the quarterback on a blitz and recovered the fumble.

For the second day in a row, Stafford connected with Henderson for a long-distance touchdown and Richt believes Henderson will be utilized in this year's offense.

"Mikey should be very valuable to us on offense," Richt said. "He's already shown the ability to catch the deep ball whereas some guys can get open deep, but they can't make the catch."

The Bulldogs, who return back to the Woodruff practice fields on Monday, have six more spring practices before they head back to Sanford Stadium for the annual G-Day game on April 8th at noon.
