ATHENS - Georgia took a break from its preseason camp on Friday morning as the Bulldogs went swimming at Gabrielsen Natatorium.

The Bulldogs were slated to go to Sanford Stadium for a special teams workout, but the buses instead went to the Ramsey Center. Inside, the players were able to swim in the various pools and dive off the boards, including the 10-meter.

The players said it was a welcome respite from the rigors of camp.

"For the last two weeks, it's been a grind," defensive tackle Jeff Owens said. "This was a great relief. During camp, we¹ve been hot, sweaty and aching. I thought it was about a time for a break, and what do you know? We got one today."

"Going to the pool is a chance for all of us to relax," cornerback Vance Cuff said. "It's a great atmosphere to talk and get to know each other better and build chemistry. A day like this gives you some life back heading into the rest of camp."

"It was refreshing," safety Makiri Pugh said. "It's been a hard camp with two-a-days. We were really tired, so it was a relief."

The Bulldogs were slated to have their special teams session later in the day.
