G Day: Stars of the Game

G Day: Stars of the Game

ATHENS - David Hale's look at the stars of Georgia's 2010 G Day.

Zach Mettenberger, QB – Mettenberger made his case for the starting quarterback job by completing 6-of-10 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns, including a 39-yarder to Arthur Lynch with 12 seconds to play in the first half that proved to be the game winner.

Kris Durham, WR – After missing all of last season with a shoulder injury, Durham has responded with a strong spring, capped by a 3-catch, 54-yard performance Saturday that included the game's first touchdown.

Rantavious Wooten, WR – The sophomore led the Black team with three catches for 45 yards and added another 16 yards on an end-around in the first half.

Cornelius Washington, OLB – The transition to outside linebacker looks like it will be a successful one for Washington, who recorded five tackles and two sacks Saturday. Washington is one of several Bulldogs who shifted from defensive end to linebacker in the new 3-4 defensive scheme. On the day, Georgia's defense recorded seven sacks.

Marcus Dowtin, ILB – Dowtin staked a claim for a starting job at inside linebacker, recording six sacks on the day – tied for the second most among any defensive player – and making the game's only interception, which he returned 25 yards.
