Q&A with Aron White

ATHENS - Dawg Post sits down with tight end Aron White.

Parker Morgan: What's it been like watching Bruce play through his injury?

Aron White: It's definitely something that shows he's got a lot of heart. I wish the best for Bruce. I'm not sure what he's planning on doing. He's definitely playing this game and I've seen him in practice and he looks good out there running around. You never know what he's going to do. If hes going to play through it and this and that, but its definitely something that I look up to in him that he fought through that and is out there every day.

PM: What's it like seeing Kiante out there at tight end?

AW: He's definitely a really big cat. It's funny because I used to go up against this dude when I first got here at defensive end, then the next week he's standing next to me on the offensive line, and now he's rotating in for me and I'm rotating in for him. It's definitely different seeing that big of a guy. Up farther north from where I'm from you definitely see the big tight end more often. He looks like a pretty intimidating cat out there lined up in the 83.

PM: Not many defensive backs lining up to hit him downfield?

AW: I definitely think that people are going to think twice before people lower their shoulder on him. He's not really a guy you want to meet head when he's got a head of steam. We'll see what he can do in the game. Hopefully he can get out there and make a couple plays.

PM: How do you approach the "hybrid" term that people like to use when talking about you?

AW: One of the reasons I came to Georgia is because I thought they were going to give me the chance to be more of a traditional tight end. I definitely want to be a complete player. I don't want to be one dimensional. It's kind of a blessing and a curse. You definitely want the athleticism they associate with hybrid but you don't want them to assume that you can't block. It's definitely not something that I think about myself. I've definitely made strides this last year.

PM: Has Coach Lilly told you yet if you're going to start this weekend?

AW: He hasn't told me for sure. I think we're all preparing right now. And whoever's name gets called is going to go out there. We're not going to have any hard feelings. It's always a competition because guys want to play but say Bruce starts, I start, Kiante starts – I think we're all going to play and rep in so it's not really that big of a deal to me.
