2007 Spring Practice: Day 6 News and Notes

ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and notes from Georgia's spring practices.

BETTER DAYS AHEAD?: One year after being moved from defensive back to wide receiver, senior Mikey Henderson has an unprecedented confidence level at his new position.

"I feel a lot more comfortable with everything than I did this time last year," he said.

Now if he can just get his production to match his potential. Henderson was one of the biggest surprises of the spring last year, and, despite being one of the nation's most feared punt returners, he never made a significant impact at wide receiver, and he finished the season with just seven catches for 44 yards.

"There's a lot of eagerness to get back out there, to get my numbers up, to catch some balls," he said.

Henderson and fellow senior Sean Bailey are the Bulldogs' starting wide receivers for the moment, having replaced Mohammed Massaquoi and A.J. Bryant since the beginning of spring, but Henderson said the depth chart is basically set only "to stir things up" every day in practice.

"It gives you that extra incentive at practice because you want to be lined up out there," he said.

PRACTICE REPORT: The Bulldogs worked out for more than two hours during their sixth workout of the spring.

"We had a really physical, competitive day," Richt said. "I was excited the levels of energy and signs for physical toughness, just a bunch of guys who looked like they really love to play football. It's been extremely competitive really every day we've been in shells or pads. I think it's a good sign."

Georgia returns to the practice field Friday and will hold a scrimmage on Saturday. The annual G-Day game is scheduled for April 7 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for high school ages and younger. Proceeds from the game will benefit Hope Haven.
