Georgia Gets Full Pads On

Georgia Gets Full Pads On

ATHENS - Georgia held its first full pads practice of the spring Tuesday afternoon at the Woodruff Practice Fields. The Bulldogs worked out for approximately two hours in cold and blustery conditions.

A large contingent of faculty members and their families attended Tuesday's practice as part of the Bulldogs' annual faculty appreciation.

"It was cold and windy, but we really had a good day," said head coach Mark Richt. "It was the first day in full pads. We got into our 3-on-3 drill, which is very competitive. The first time you tackle in the spring usually gets everyone's blood pumping and it did. I was really pleased with the energy."

Richt said he has been satisfied with the Bulldogs' progress through four practices this spring.

"We're making a lot of progress," Richt said. "Guys are running to the ball on defense, and we are getting a lot of hats to the football right now. Offensively we are doing a good job there too. I see a bunch of guys working really hard and a bunch of coaches coaching really hard. It's been a pleasure to watch so far."

Georgia will practice again Thursday and Friday before the first scrimmage of the spring on Saturday.

"Usually after the first scrimmage we'll have a little bit better feel of depth chart moves," Richt said. "There is some depth chart movement going on at different spots, but we'll know a lot more after that first scrimmage."

The annual G-Day Game is slated for Saturday, April 12 at 1 p.m. Gates at Sanford Stadium will open at 11 a.m., and admission is free.
