2007 Spring Practice: Day 14 Practice Report

ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs worked out for just more than an hour in helmets and shorts at the Woodruff practice fields on Friday afternoon.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt said the coaches, players and staff are all looking forward to taking the field on Saturday for G-Day, which is the program's annual spring scrimmage.

"G-Day every year is a big celebration for Georgia football," Richt said. "Everyone in our program tries to enjoy it and I hope the fans have a great time too. We will have a larger number ofprospects at the game than we would at some of our other junior days so we hope they have a great time as well."

Four Georgia football greats will serve as "guest coaches" during G-Day, including Super Bowl XL MVP Hines Ward. In addition, David Pollack, a three-time All-American defensive end for the Bulldogs, Jon Stinchcomb, who suits up for the New Orleans Saints, and Will Witherspoon, who has had a standout NFL career with the Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams, will also be pacing the Georgia sidelines on Saturday.

"We were in a staff meeting and Coach Martinez said we ought to have these guys as guest coaches," said Richt. "I said we could do it if we have one offensive guy and one defensive guy on each team. They won't be doing much coaching, but I can't imaging Hines (Ward) won't be in Coach (Mike) Bobo's ear about throwing a bomb and that (David) Pollack won't be trying to get a blitz or two in there."

The official kick-off for G-Day is at 2:06 p.m. and CSS will televise the game. Cost of tickets is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students and children. UGA students will be admitted free with their University ID card.
