'Incredible' homecoming for McGarity

Oconee County graduate Sean McGarity got a chance to fulfill a dream Saturday.

Sean McGarity’s homecoming didn’t look that good on the scoreboard, but the Oconee County High graduate was thrilled to play in Sanford Stadium.

The Charleston Southern reserve redshirt freshman center is the nephew of Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity and calls Athens his hometown.

“It was incredible,”he said. “It was something I’ve dreamed about since I was a kid. Just being back home in the energy of Sanford Stadium that I’ve experienced for however many times I’ve been here, it still came to life today. You still get chills when you run out on the field for the first time. Your stomach kind of drops a little bit, but it’s just the excitement and I couldn’t ask for a better experience here.”
