Chubb's running wild, again

After running for over 2,700 yards in 2012, Nick Chubb picked up right where he left off in 2013. He is focused on Cedartown now, but excited about playing between the hedges in the future...

Nick Chubb has been inside Sanford Stadium many times in recent years and he cannot wait until he gets to suit up in red and black.

But he has unfinished business at Cedartown that he plans to tend to first.

"I am focused on my team, Cedartown, and taking care of things here first," Chubb said. "We are undefeated (7-0) this season and we are working hard to have a great season."

Chubb has attended a couple of games at Georgia this season and the UGA commitment likes what he has seen.

"The team plays hard and they have played a lot of top teams this season. They have had some bad luck, but they have played through that pretty well.

"The crowds are great at Georgia and I love the fans. Some of them know who I am and it will be great to play there next year. I just like how hard the team plays and the kind of people the coaches are."

The Scout 100 running back is "all dawg" and he is not looking to visit any other schools.

His focus is on his team, but he knows the top two running back (Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall) are down and he'd love to help.

"It would be great to be able to get out there on the field and help the team, but my work isn't done at Cedartown yet," Chubb said. "I hate to see the guys get hurt and I will be there next year to help with the depth. Running back depth is important and I hope to help next year.

"If I could help now, I would, but I have to help my teammates first. We want to win a lot more games this season."

Chubb has helped the Bulldogs, the Cedartown Bulldogs to a perfect 7-0 record so far. He is averaging just under 270 yards per game (1,880 yards for the season) and he has put the ball in the end zone 29 times already.

After a very impressive junior campaign, the No. 12 back in the country trained hard in the off-season to improve his all around game.

"I think I have really improved a lot. I am playing both sides of the ball now and I am in good shape. I worked for that and as a running back, I am running with more power, I am faster, and I think I am a lot better overall."

Bryan McClendon, UGA's running back coach has to like what he sees in the future Dawg. The feels are reciprocated.

"I really like Coach McClendon and I can't wait to play for him," Chubb said. "He is fun to talk to, he is a great coach, and we get along great."
