Ealey and Moody Continue to Win

BREMEN - A pair of UGA 2009 commits were playing in the Single A Quarterfinals Friday night, and all eyes were on Washaun Ealey and Dexter Moody from the moment they hit the field.

Washaun Ealey did not disappoint with a workman-like performance of 194 yards on 30 carries. Ealey is a very patient runner and reminds me of current New York Giant and former Georgia Bulldog running back Danny Ware. One thing I noticed with Ealey is that he is always falling forward for that extra yard. I also like that Ealey would block and did not take plays off when the ball was not in his hands. Ealey, who is not 100%, showed a gutty performance against a very physical Bremen team.

Dexter Moody is playing defensive end in his high school defense scheme and most of the night Bremen ran away from him. I did see enough of this young man to understand what Georgia, Florida and LSU saw in him. He is very fast from sideline to sideline and has great closing speed. He will be a linebacker on the next level.

This was a very physical game and came down to the last play. What were you thinking on the last play?
Washaun Ealey "I was just praying our defense would stop them"
Dexter Moody "I looked back and saw the ball sail over the wide receivers head and said thank you Lord"

You are defending state champions and everybody is gunning for you each week. Does it make it tougher on you guys?
Ealey- "In the playoffs everybody is good, so we knew it would be a tough game"
Moody-"Yes sir it does"

What games have you been to this year?
Ealey- "I have only been to Georgia"
Moody- "Only been to games at Georgia"

Are you 100% committed to UGA?
Ealey- "Yes Sir"
Moody-" Yes Sir"

Both of you were selected to play in the Under Armour game in January, what are you thoughts on that?
Ealey- "I am really looking forward to that game playing against the best"
Moody- "I am really excited about that game and can't wait"

Final Word: Ealey and Moody are men among boys in high school and it will take a upset for ECI not to win back-to-back state championships in Single A. Both are physically ready to play college football now, it will be up to them to decide how quickly they take the field when they arrive into Athens.
