³We tried to simulate a real game by going through our pre-game warm-up, trying to simulate a full first half, but the energy level was not where you want it to be,² Richt said. ³It is hard to get jacked up about playing the scout team.²
Richt highlighted junior flanker Demiko Goodman¹s 50-yard touchdown catch, senior Jason Johnson¹s 62 yards on six carries and sophomore quarterback Matthew Stafford¹s 4-yard touchdown pass to redshirt freshman fullback Shaun Chapas.
Although Richt did not confirm who would be starting at tailback for his team, he said that senior Thomas Brown not only provides ³outstanding pass protection,² but that he also brings other intangibles to Georgia¹s huddle.
³Thomas brings energy, toughness, leadership and he¹s a powerful guy who plays with a physical attitude,² said Richt.
Freshman quarterback Logan Gray, who played the role of Oklahoma State¹s quarterback, not only scored against the Bulldog defense on a 10-yard run, but Richt also said he was able to avoid pressure in the backfield throughout the scrimmage.
³Logan did a nice job tonight,² said Richt. ³He had a couple completions to his buddy Aron White (who attended Rock Bridge High School with Gray in Columbia, Mo.) and he ran well and scored a touchdown. He also escaped some situations that normally would have been sacks.²
