Game Captains Announced for Season Opener

ATHENS - Georgia announces Captains for Season Opener

Offensive tackles John Theus and Kolton Houston and outside linebackers Jordan Jenkins and Leonard Floyd will be the game captains for the opener. They were also the captains for the practice game. “It’s a pretty great honor to be named the first captains of the year,” Richt said. It’s based on playing performance, academics and off-field behavior during the offseason.

Keith Marshall has an edge on Brendan Douglas for third string tailback behind Nick Chubb and Michel. “I think they’ve both earned the right to be the third guy,” Richt said.

There weren’t any injuries of note. “We came out very good,” Richt said. “I don’t think we stopped play for anybody. A couple of guys you can tell got stung...but there was no injuries.” …Richt said the second team offensive line has shown improvement since early in the preseason.
