2006 Fall Camp: Day Ten Practice Report

ATHENS - The Georgia football team concluded its preseason camp on Tuesday with a two-hour practice in helmets and shoulder pads at the Woodruff Practice Fields.

The fall academic semester begins Wednesday as does Georgia¹s regular afternoon practice schedule.

³This was the last day of camp and it looked like the last day,² said head coach Mark Richt. ³It started out good, but they ran out of gas. I guess that¹s pretty understandable. Not that camp is a tough as it use to be but we¹ve been pushing them. We¹ve been taking up just about every minute of their time.

³Now we¹re in our one-a-day schedule. Tomorrow will be a big day for them, just making sure they know where their classes are and just getting a good start. That¹s so important in school. We¹ll shorten our practice tomorrow for that reason,² Richt said.

Following practice Richt bragged on several receivers including junior A.J. Bryant, who made two ³tough catches² during the workout.

³We¹ve done well this camp, and I think (the quarterbacks) are gaining confidence by leaps and bounds in every (receiver) out there right now. Demiko (Goodman) is really coming along and Tony Wilson has caught the majority of the balls thrown to him. (Kris) Durham is proving to be that kind of a guy and Mikey Henderson has always caught the ball well. We¹re just getting better, but I still say if you ask each quarterback which guy they thought would have the best chance of catching a ball it would be Mohamed (Massaquoi).

Richt announced that Wilson was forced to leave practice with a shoulder injury.

³(Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson) called it a shoulder pointer, kind of a bruise on the bone. He took a shot that¹s just real sore but it goes away relatively soon. (Chester Adams) had the hip pointer on the third day and came back so hopefully that will happen to Tony. It's nothing real serious,² said Richt.
