How Was Your Summer?

Dawg Post takes a look at what the summer break has done for the Dawgs.

One Bulldog will don the number 11 in 2014, and it's neither Aaron Murray nor Connor Norman.

Instead, and this comes from the recently released and updated Georgia football roster, freshman outside linebacker Keyon Brown will wear the sticks. Brown, a 6-foot-3, 247-pound defender out of Wauchula, Fla. will have some big shoes to fill.

What else is new?

Well, Lorenzo Carter isn't a new name if you're a Bulldog fan, or anyone who follows recruiting. But he's got a new uniform, and to the satisfaction of Dawg fans, that uniform will consist of silver britches - and the number seven. Also in number seven will be freshman quarterback and former early enrollee Jacob Park. Those two aren't the only players to wear matching uniforms. A few pairings who join Park and Carter are Sony Michel and Tramel Terry (1), Michael Erdman and Jonah Guinn (6), Shaun McGee and Blake Tibbs (8), Faton Bauta and Kennar Johnson (10), Hutson Mason and Malkom Parrish (14), and Chris Conley and Shattle Fenteng (31).

Who's gaining weight? Who's losing weight?

Junior place kicker Patrick Beless is the lightest player on the roster in terms of weight at 162 pounds - just two pounds lighter than newcomer Isaiah McKenzie. Greg Pyke and Watts Dantzler, however, are battling for the top spot on the other end of the spectrum. Pyke wins by one pound with a total of 321. Pyke shaved five pounds to hit that total.

On defense, some notables are John Atkins who lost 23 pounds to reach a weight of 299 and Amarlo Herrera who dropped 13 pounds to reach 231.

On offense, a few players to look at are John Theus and Zach DeBell. Theus is up 15 pounds for a grand total of 313, while DeBell has tacked on 25 pounds to reach a total of 298.

Of course, as Dean stated in his Theus article, don't go jumping out of your seats about a few numbers changed in the guide. These are just a few subtle indicators of what a summer can change.
