Oklahoma St. Week: Wednesday Practice Report

Posted Aug 29, 2007

ATHENS - The 13th-ranked Georgia football team continued preparations for its season opener with a 90-minute workout Wednesday.

In his post-practice media session, Bulldog head coach Mark Richt said the team went through a dress rehearsal and will have another one Thursday.

“The guys need to rest their legs and get their energy level back,” said Richt. “It was a big day for mental preparation, and they were pretty sharp. We had a few missed assignments and a couple offside penalties but a good day.”

When asked about the outlook of Georgia’s special teams contributors this season, Richt said the Bulldogs would be a lot better compared to last season.

“We’ve got a lot more players who can run, hit and tackle this year, and we’re relatively healthy,” said Richt.

Also, Richt was asked about the competition at tight end between redshirt freshman Na Derris Ward and true freshman Bruce Figgins. The duo will see time in the season opener with junior Tripp Chandler out for one game.

“It will define some things once Tripp gets back,” said Richt. “It will be a battle for number two. Tripp knows what he’s doing, and we’ll see how they do.”
