ATHENS – Thomas Flowers is back at the number one cornerback spot – at least he was this morning.

“This year has been pretty good for me – so far,” Flowers said. “I am back to 100%, and I am feeling really good. I am running with the ones right now. Coming into camp I was two in the depth chart. I have just kept working and working and working.”

That’s different than the way Flowers felt at this time last year. He was suspended for two games in 2006 after an unspecified violation of team rules. From that point forward Flowers struggled to get back onto the first team on any group. He took a back seat at cornerback and watched as Mikey Henderson sprinted past him for the punt returner job.

“I made a mistake and paid for it, and now I am back out here taking it one day at a time,” Flowers said this morning. “It was no where near perfect for me. As a life lesson, learned from my mistake, and I have moved on. I can’t control what has happened in the past. Right now I am looking forward at the future. I want our team to have a great year this season.”

Flowers understands that this is his last shot at Georgia, and is taking precautions to make sure that he stays healthy during fall camp. Injuries, after all, have bitten him in the recent past. He said that he visits the trainer after practices to make certain his once-injured foot doesn’t wind up that way again, and, he said, he spends time in the ice after some practices in order to avoid any cramping issues or to ward off any hamstring issues.

It’s hard to know if Flowers will hold onto the cornerback spot he recently snagged from Asher Allen. But Flowers maintains that he will do everything he can to keep it.

“Right now I am just working hard to get better,” Flowers said. “If (keeping the starting spot) is something that I can do I will do it.”
