2010 Fall Camp: Day Eight Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia squared off during a scrimmage Between the Hedges for two hours Tuesday.

It marked the second preseason practice in full pads for the Bulldogs, and Georgia coach Mark Richt said he liked what he saw at Sanford Stadium.

"Without question, the number one units whipped the number two units," Richt said. "That's what you want to see, and our number two offense and defense were competing out there. It was a hot, humid day, probably the hottest and most humid of all our practices so far."

Richt began his post-scrimmage media session by providing some statistics from Tuesday's action. Redshirt freshman quarterback Aaron Murray was 12-for-21 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while true freshman Hutson Mason was 9-for-23 for 78 yards and one touchdown. Junior tailback Caleb King had 14 carries for 63 yards while sophomore Washaun Ealey tallied 66 yards on five carries. Junior flanker A.J. Green posted a productive day with five receptions for 141 yards and two touchdowns while junior Logan Gray had a pair of catches for 45 yards. Defensively, senior linebacker Akeem Hebron led all tacklers with six while senior end Demarcus Dobbs and junior safety Nick Williams had five apiece. Junior cornerback Brandon Boykin and true freshman safety Alec Ogletree notched interceptions.

Murray said that he did some good things and some bad things while directing the first team.

"I know I have to continue to work hard, watch film and improve," said Murray. "Today, I felt comfortable in the pocket, I trust the line, and I had time to throw. From watching film, I know I can trust the guys up front, and I don't have to rush and can look down field. I did force a couple throws today trying to make plays, and I will learn from that."

Richt said he thought Murray led the team well Tuesday.

"He has a very good command of the system, he was getting us in the right plays, and overall, he's done well," said Richt. "He did have one interception, and it was not a wise decision. He knows he doesn't have to be a hero, and it's all right to throw it out of bounds some times."
