Backup Linemen Get a Shot

Georgia’s offensive line turned to backups before the game was way out of hand in the second half.

Backups tackles Mark Beard and Watts Dantzler played on the first drive of the second quarter and freshmen guards Isaiah Wynn and Dyshon Sims got in before halftime with Georgia leading 31-0.

Sims was at left guard and Wynn at right guard, lining up next to center David Andrews.

“They played tough, they played physical and they played hard,” Andrews said. “That’s what you’ve got to look for in that moment. I think they’ve got a pretty good grasp of the assignments. They’re two smart kids. I’m really looking forward to what they can do and how they can help this team out next year.”

Georgia had its second string line in the game in the third quarter, including center Hunter Long.

Sims, out of Lowndes High in Valdosta, called the day “fun,” because he got plenty of snaps.

“I was content with that and tried to make the best of my opportunity,”Sims said. “I think I played pretty good. I know I had a couple of plays where I had a few busts on, but you kind of have to play the next play and then deal with that come Monday morning.”
