ATHENS-----The Georgia football team continued preseason camp Wednesday morning with a two-hour practice in full pads at the Woodruff Practice Fields.
Wednesday marked the fourth and final two-a-day for the Bulldogs, who are slated to practice again in the evening.
Offensive players, including quarterback Hutson Mason, addressed the media following Wednesday's practice.
"(Preseason camp) been a great opportunity for us to find our team identity," Mason said. "That's really what camp is all about. We are trying to figure out where all the pieces of the puzzle fit and where we can be most effective in using guys.
"I think I've gotten better. One of the things I really wanted to work on was staying in the pocket and keeping my eyes up and be more effective from within the pocket. We have watched some pro tape to see how those guys stand in the pocket and throw guys open. That's one thing we've been working on as quarterbacks."
Following the Wednesday evening workout, the Bulldogs will practice again on Thursday. Fall semester classes at UGA are scheduled to begin Monday.
Georgia, ranked No. 12 in the Amway Coaches Poll, will open the season against No. 16 Clemson on Aug. 30 at 5:30 p.m. The game will be televised by ESPN.
