2009 Fall Camp: Day Four Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia continued their preseason preparations with a two-hour session on Friday at the Woodruff Practice Fields.

³It¹s day four, and it was a good practice,² Georgia coach Mark Richt said. ³It¹s obvious there are a lot of guys who don¹t know what to do at least not the way their coach wants it done but the attitude, effort, intensity and enthusiasm have been very good. That¹s important. To this point, I have been pretty pleased.²

Richt said defensive lineman Geno Atkins and cornerback Prince Miller each had an interception return for a touchdown during Friday¹s session. He called those ³the two most exciting plays when the offense and the defense were together.²

Richt was asked about Logan Gray, who opened camp as the No. 2 quarterback behind Joe Cox.

³I am pleased with Logan¹s camp,² Richt said. ³He¹s done a nice job preparing himself. He had a great spring and he¹s carried that into the summer.²

Richt also was asked to evaluate Marcus Washington, who has been getting work at both linebacker and defensive end.

³Marcus went to end during pass rush, inside drill and 11-on-11,² Richt said. ³He¹s starting to line up there. We¹ll see what kind of knack he has for it.²

Earlier in the day, it was announced that the Bulldogs were ranked No. 13 in the initial USA Today coaches¹ poll. Also, it was announced that safety Reshad Jones has been placed on the watch list for the Jim Thorpe Award, which is given annually to the nation¹s top defensive back.
