The Next Big Hitter
Dave McMahon -- How has the summer been?
Antavious Coates -- It's been good. I feel like I am on top of my game right now. I am ready.
DM -- You have played football all your life... how hard was it to sit out a full season?
AC -- It was very hard, but I took advantage of it. I learned a lot from how the coaches saw things. I also studied the safties in the game. I have also watched films on Thomas Davis and Sean Jones when they played here.
DM -- What is your favorite part about being a safety?
AC -- Hitting. I love hitting and making the big play. I want the opponents to realize they shouldn't come anywhere near my territory.
DM -- Greg Blue told me after the season last year that you were the next big hitter on Georgia's team... what do you think about that?
AC -- It is a great compliment coming from him.
DM -- Coming from South Carolina, how much did you know about Georgia before coming here?
AC -- I guess it was my sophomore year. Then later on I took my visits and thought this was a great place for me to play.
DM -- Why did you eventually choose Georgia?
AC -- I loved the atmosphere. The coaches and players were all great.
DM -- What are the overall strengths of this secondary?
AC -- We all are guys that have a good combination of speed, size, cover ability and we love to hit and make tackles. There is not one thing we do well, we try to do them all.
DM -- Thank you for your time and good luck this upcoming season.
