ATHENS - Junior college kicker Brandon Bogotay has signed a letter of intent with the University of Georgia football team according to an announcement Thursday by Bulldog head coach Mark Richt.
Bogotay, a native of San Diego, Calif., competed as a freshman at Grossmont College (El Cajon, Calif.) in 2008 and was named to the Southern Conference¹s All-Conference First Team. He finished 15-of-23 on field goals, including a long kick of 52 yards, and was listed at the No. 3 spot on the California Community College Athletic Association¹s list for most points scored kicking last season with 72.
³We¹re excited to have Brandon joining our 2009 signing class and look forward to him competing on our kickoff, field goal, and extra point teams,² said Richt.
Bogotay, who did not play football while attending Patrick Henry High School, was named his junior college conference¹s Special Teams/All-Purpose Player of the Week on Oct. 13, 2008, after connecting on all four of his field goal attempts as well as all three extra points.
The addition of Bogotay gives the Bulldogs 20 signees who are already enrolled at Georgia or who will be arriving in the summer to join their teammates.
