When Chubb met Herschel

ATHENS - It’s been a week since Nick Chubb met Herschel Walker.

The SEC freshman of the year last season spent time with Georgia’s 1982 Heisman Trophy winner when he was in town for the coaches clinic.

Chubb, of course, heard plenty of comparisons with Walker last season when he burst onto the scene and rushed for 1,547 yards.

“It feels good obviously,” Chubb said. “He was the greatest running back at Georgia and they’re saying we have some similarities so obviously that makes me happy.”

Chubb said he didn’t even know Walker caught a couple of his games in person last season.

“Knowing Herschel’s there watching me can be a kind of pressure,” he said. “You’re in the position that he was and knowing that you could never do it like he did.”
