ATHENS-----The Georgia football team held its second practice of preseason camp Friday morning, working out for approximately two and a half hours in shorts and helmets. The Bulldogs will practice in shoulder pads the next two days before they wear full pads for the first time Monday.

"Yesterday for the boys it probably felt like the hottest day of the summer," head coach Mark Richt said. "There was some day one energy and jitters, and you could tell that by the end of the day it got to them a little bit. We didn't finish quite as well as I would like to, so we added some post-practice conditioning. Today was cooler with the overcast skies, and it was probably something they needed. It was the quickest turnaround of the camp." 

Richt noted several players have caught his attention with their performances in the first two practices.

"(Damian) Swann had a couple of picks today, and he looked very good," Richt said. "Shaq Wiggins also had an interception, and he's a fiery competitor. I also like (Brendon) Langley, and (Davin) Bellamy and (Leonard) Floyd are long, rangy athletes who can really move. You get excited about that. You expect (Aaron) Murray to be sharp, and he's been very sharp with his accuracy and leadership. Amarlo (Herrera) has done a good job getting his weight down, and you can see a different quickness in him."

Richt also said after practice that sophomore Josh Dawson is now working with the defensive ends.

"He has put on some really good weight and is very strong," Richt said. "He is capable of doing both (outside linebacker and defensive end), but right now his primary position will be end."

Georgia will continue to practice in the mornings until classes start on Monday, Aug. 12. The Bulldogs are slated to practice 10 straight days to start camp before an off day Aug. 11.

Fifth-ranked Georgia opens the season at eighth-ranked Clemson on Aug. 31. Kickoff is slated for 8:00 p.m., and the game will be televised by the ABC.
