Bulldogs Practice in Full Pads Thursday

March 28, 2013

ATHENS, Ga.--The Georgia football team returned to the Woodruff Practice Fields Thursday, practicing in full pads for roughly two hours under clear skies and in 60-degree temperatures.

The return of freshman John Theus from injury highlighted Thursday's session.

"It felt great to be out on the field today," Theus said. "It's just great to be back. I know that I have a long way to go but it felt really good to be out there grinding with the guys today. I'm looking forward to the rest of spring practice."

Georgia has five practices remaining before the annual G-Day spring game arrives on Saturday, April 6. Georgia will also practice two more times after the spring game.

"Everyone competed well," said head coach Mark Richt. "It was also a good day because we had a lot of our coaches come here for the coaches clinic. We're going to have them here today and tomorrow and we're looking forward to spending some time with them tonight."

Thursday was the first day of Georgia's annual coaching clinic. Roughly 300 high school coaches spent the afternoon at practice, beginning the two-day event. Tonight, head coach Mark Richt will speak at a dinner before the high school coaches break out into various breakout sessions with Georgia assistant coaches. Tomorrow will feature various meetings, highlighted by a the featured speaker, former NFL head coach Jon Gruden.

Georgia will practice again Friday before holding a scrimmage on Saturday morning.
