The Need for Speed
Dave McMahon -- How have summer workouts been going?
Akeem Hebron -- Real well. My high school did a lot of the same drills as they do here, so I didn't have to adjust too much. They are a little more intense here.
DM -- Are you any faster or bigger from last year?
AH -- Same speed. Right now I weigh 215 pounds, last year I weighed 195.
DM -- Have the coaches talked to you about playing this year or are they talking about redshirting you?
AH -- It depends how I do in the practices. I feel like I can contribute. Right now there are 4 freshman linebackers to are trying to fit into the rotation. I just have to learn the plays and do my best. I want to get into the linebacker rotation and play some special teams, too.
DM -- What are your strengths as a linebacker?
AH -- I have a real nose for the ball. I am also a lot faster than most linebackers.
DM -- What was your 40 time?
AH -- Last year I was once clocked at 4.4
DM -- What do you like about Linebackers coach John Jancek?
AH -- We are real close. We talk to each other a lot. He helps me out a lot. He is a good coach.
DM -- What about Coach Mark Richt?
AH -- He is a real good person. He is very caring. He cares about how you do in the classroom as much as he does on the football field.
DM -- Will you have any family down for the first game vs Western Kentucky?
AH -- Definitely. My mom will be there. My sister, some cousins. I will have a lot of people there for my first game.
DM -- Thank you for your time and I bet you will have around 92,746 people there that will treat you like family.
