Dealing with the Middle Men
Dave McMahon -- How has practice been going?
John Jancek -- It has been good. We are getting a lot accomplished. We are a little banged up right now, but we have been playing good.
DM -- Which players are banged up?
JJ -- Brandon Miller and Darius Dewberry are a little banged up, but they should be fine.
DM -- Anyone look really good in Friday's scrimmage?
JJ -- It is hard to say. I will have to watch the films more, but I liked the 1st group a lot. The 2nd group has a longer way to go, but some of them are true freshmen, so that is natural.
DM -- The linebacker group returns a lot of experienced talent, that has to make coaching a little easier...
JJ -- Players like Danny (Verdun-Wheeler), Jarvis (Jackson), Tony (Taylor)and Brandon (Miller) have all got starting experience so that is great. Also Marcus Washington played a lot last year as a true freshman.
DM -- A lot of the linebackers are cross training and playing several different linebacker positions... why all the cross-training?
JJ -- It helps us with depth. You never know what is going to happen and with the players having the ability to play other positions it will help the team.
DM -- Which players have the ability to crosstrain?
JJ -- Danny can do it, so can Tony and Jarvis. Brandon is pretty close.
DM -- Tell me about the four freshmen...
JJ -- They all run extremely well. They are picking up things really quick especially since it has been just 2 weeks. I am very pleased with them.
DM -- Any of them have a chance to play this year?
JJ -- We haven't made any decisions on that.
DM -- Georgia has had a lot of great linebackers in recent years, does that help out motivate the current linebackers?
JJ -- A lot of those linebackers come back here. Players like Will Witherspoon, Tony Gilbert and a few others come back here a lot. The players love seeing them.
DM -- Thank you for your time and answers.
