2009 Fall Camp: Day Seven Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia continued preparations for the 2009 season with a two-hour session at Sanford Stadium focusing on special teams.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said he and his staff are figuring out the personnel that will be ready to play on special teams, and that Tuesday's practice provided plenty of work in all phases except extra points and field goals. The Bulldogs concentrated on punting, punt blocks, punt returns along with kickoffs and kickoff returns.

Sophomore quarterback Logan Gray, who saw action as a punt returner last season, said he was pleased to contribute as a member of the 2008 special teams unit.

"I was happy the coaches gave me a chance, I have no regrets because I enjoyed being on the field," said Gray who had six returns for 72 yards. "It was fun because you go out there and go as hard as you can for one play. We'll see how it plays out this year."

Georgia will practice twice Wednesday including the first scrimmage of fall camp during the afternoon session.

Junior fullback Shaun Chapas said the team is looking forward to the scrimmage.

"I didn't look around too much today, I was focused on what I needed to do, but it looked like everyone was working hard out there and excited about the chance to scrimmage tomorrow," said Chapas. "It will be a good test to see where we are at this point."
