The Tony Award
Dave McMahon -- This is your last set of practices as a Georgia Bulldog, do you ever think about that?
Tony Taylor -- I am not thinking about that. I am thinking about what I have to do.
DM -- This is not a BCS bowl, but you are playing in your home state...
TT -- Atlanta is like a second home to us. Any time you play there it feels good.
DM -- You had two touchdowns this season, that is the same amount as players such as Thomas Brown, Martrez Milner, Mohamed Massaquoi and some others, do you find that strange?
TT -- That is strange. I never thought about it like that.
DM -- Speaking of touchdowns, tell me about that last touchdown you scored against Georgia Tech?
TT -- I saw the ball the whole time. I just wanted to pick it up without anyone seeing me picking it up and then take off.
DM -- Which other SEC linebackers have impressed you the most this season?
TT -- Patrick Willis. He had a ton of tackles this season. It is unreal how many he had. He stands out more than any other linebacker.
DM -- How soon after the bowl game do you start thinking about the draft?
TT -- That has yet to be determined.
DM -- Do you have a favorite NFL team?
TT -- Whatever team gives me an opportunity.
DM -- You were a leader to many young linebackers this season, who were the leaders for you when you were a freshman?
TT -- Tony Gilbert and Boss Bailey. Everyone looked up to them.
DM -- What will you remember the most about your time in Athens?
TT -- The friendships and all we had to go through together.
