DN90: Former UGA running back Nick Chubb sets sights on major NFL accomplishment.

Georgia fans have seen what can happen when Nick Chubb was motivated in his training.

The former Bulldogs running back overcame a serious knee injury suffered in 2015 to return to the field in 2016 and eventually help lead UGA to an SEC championship and Rose Bowl win in the College Football Playoff in 2017.

In doing so, Chubb showed himself be the perfect embodiment of a leader by example. Chubb, famously, is a man of few words, but his actions have always made his intentions clear.

This remains true as Chubb prepares to enter his third NFL season this fall with the Cleveland Browns. And Chubb’s goal for the upcoming season is to become the league’s leading rusher.

Chubb nearly accomplished that feat in 2019. He went into the final week of the regular season on top in that statistical category, but a poor Week 17 performance from his Browns offense, and a 211-yard effort from The Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry meant it would be Henry, and not Chubb, who would bring home the rushing title.

Chubb told reporters this week that the experience of missing out on that accomplishment in 2019 is motivation for him to get the job done this season.

Chubb also discussed the training regiment he’s going through to enhance his chances of being the NFL’s top running back.

UGA fans have learned not to doubt Chubb when he sets his sights on an ambition, and what Chubb came close to accomplishing last season might truly be on track to occur this year.

For more on what Chubb said this week, and what UGA coach Kirby Smart said this week about Chubb’s famous dedication to training, check out the latest edition of DN90, linked above.
