"Ty has done an outstanding job with all our snapping duties," said Richt. "He's been an instrumental part of one of the top punt and field goal/extra point teams in the country. Ty is well deserving and we're very pleased to award him the scholarship."
Frix, a redshirt sophomore from Calhoun, is expected to start for the Bulldogs for the second consecutive season in 2010. A Biomedical Engineering major who was valedictorian at Calhoun High School, Frix snapped to two of the top special team performers in the nation last season in All-American punter and Ray Guy Award winner Drew Butler and All-SEC placekicker and Lou Groza Award finalist Blair Walsh.
Frix is a second generation snapper for Georgia. His father, Dr. Mitch Frix , was the starting snapper for the Bulldogs in 1981 and 1982 and was a member of three SEC championship teams, one national title team and three Sugar Bowl teams.
