Pyke's Push

ATHENS - Greg Pyke said Monday that he had never heard of the “Bush Push.”

That’s the play in 2005 when Southern California running back Reggie Bush helped quarterback Matt Leinart reach the end zone on a touchdown in the final seconds of a win over Notre Dame.

The Georgia offensive right guard did his version Saturday pushing freshman tailback Sony Michel forward on an 8-yard TD run against Troy, giving him some assistance for the last 4 yards of it.

“After the game, I saw a bunch of buddies of mine and friends and family were just shooting me texts

on social media and stuff,” Pyke said. “I thought it was more like I just pushed him in but I guess I kind of did carry him and threw him in. He looked like he was about to fall down so I guess I kind of picked him up and threw him in the end zone. He did the rest. He kept his balance. It was a fun play.”

Offensive tackle John Theus enjoyed the Pyke-Michel tag-team.

“What I thought was funny was they put the camera afterwards on him on the big screen," Theus said. "Pyke being Pyke and his goofy self, Pyke waved like he was waving to the crowd. Coach (Will) Friend said today that he thought he was about to tackle him.”
