Dawgs Continue Spring Drills

ATHENS - Georgia continued spring football practice on Tuesday, working out for two hours on the Woodruff Practice Fields.

After the session, Georgia head coach Mark Richt had high praise for the members of the defense.

"It was a very good day for the defense," Richt said. "They really got after it today and they pretty much shut down the offense. We're still installing and that's part of the process, but I'm seeing lots of competition."

Defensive backs coach Scott Lakatos said much of the defense's progress can be attributed to the players having a full season of defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's system under their belts.

"We're seeing a lot of energy, and that's what you like to see in the spring," Lakatos said. "Guys are competing and running hard to the ball. Having played a year in this defense is important. You can't think and play fast at the same time. With their experience, they can react and play fast."

Richt also was asked about the progress being made by early enrollees Christian LeMay at quarterback and Chris Conley at receiver.

"They're lost," Richt said with a laugh. "They're keeping up right now. In the spring, the players have at least one season behind them, but these young guys don't have that. The two Christians — LeMay and Conley — are doing a good job."

Georgia will return to practice Thursday and Friday, during which time there will be a high school coaching clinic. Georgia will conclude spring drills with the G-Day Game April 16 at 1 p.m. at Sanford Stadium.
