That could be future College Football Hall of Fame credentials.
Richt has never made any hall of fame, but that will change tonight.
The Georgia coach will be inducted into the Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame in West Palm Beach, Fla.
"That's pretty cool, I guess," Richt said.
Richt played quarterback for Boca Raton High School, earning a scholarship to play nearby at the University of Miami. His senior high school season stands out most for him.
"I think we ended up 11-2 or something like that, went to the semifinals of the state championship, lost to Miami Carol City, 15-12, in Lockhart Stadium," Richt said. "It was a terrible rain storm. If we could have beat them, we would have played for the state championship, but they beat us. They won the state championship the next week."
Garcia visits his front-runner
Georgia received a verbal commitment on its junior day Saturday from West Laurens linebacker Johnny O'Neal.
High school recruits weren't the only prospects there.
The 6-foot-5, 310-pounder from Norcross spoke to the Ole Miss' Scout.com site after he visited Oxford earlier in the week.
"(Georgia's) been my front-runner because it's so close to home," he said. "But I'll say this, after my visit to Ole Miss, they've moved up to No. 2. I really don't have a list to be honest, but I can say that I have a high interest in both Georgia and Ole Miss right now."
Full-tilt practice in full pads
Richt called Saturday's first session of the spring in full pads "a very spirited practice."
"Those boys got into it," Gilliard said. "I'm not really sure what happened. That's football. ... It's all good. We're all one team at the end of the day."
The defense again had the edge on the offense, but Richt said it wasn't a shutout this time — "which tells me the offense is improving and making progress," he added.
Said linebacker Jarvis Jones: "Our defense being much older than our offense right now, especially up front, our offense is grinding it out. We're making plays. They're getting a bit frustrated. That's what we want. We want to put them in situations, so they can learn and they can improve in those situations."
Jones on ‘young' outside LBs
"We're young, man, we're really young," Jones said. "I've still got this year and next year left. If you look at it as a whole, we're really young. ... They're having fun doing it and coach is putting them in the right position to make plays. They're experiencing it early."
This and that
Austin Long was lined up at first-team right tackle early in Saturday's practice. Watts Dantzler has also worked that spot. ... Peach County receiver Demarcus Robinson was among the other 2013 prospects watching practice under sunny conditions in the morning. ... The Bulldogs don't practice again until Tuesday.
