ATHENS, Ga. -- The Georgia football team continued preseason camp Monday morning with its 12th practice on the Woodruff Practice Fields.
The Bulldogs are scheduled for another practice Monday evening.
Monday's practices came on the heels of the Bulldogs' first scrimmage on Saturday and the first day off from camp for the players on Sunday.
Following Monday's first practice, freshmen from the offensive side of the ball met with the media.
"It's a grind, but I really like it," tight end Jeb Blazevich said. "The transition is going as smooth as it can. I'm trying to learn and get better every day. I'm still making a few freshman mistakes. It's like, `Wow, I can't believe I just did that. We just went over that.' I have to grow up quick and the other tight ends are making sure I'm doing that."
"It's great; it's been a wonderful experience," running back Sony Michel said. "It's a whole other atmosphere from high school. I feel like a freshman from the perspective of having to learn, but in terms of work ethic, I'm in there to compete. Nick (Chubb) and I are learning from each other and feeding off each other, and if we're not sure about something, we can ask the older guys. They're there to help us. We want to work to be at their level."
